I wanted to take a few minutes to say thank you. To my family, who continue to amaze me with their great capicity to love and care. To my husband who works himself sick to provide for us with great love. To my kids, who have grown into incredible young adults. Their drive and optomism give me hope for the next generation. To my friends in the Bay Area whom I have missed greatly, and to my new friends in OC and on line who have welcomed me with open arms and hearts. You filled a deep void created by my loss of community after moving to a new town. I love you all, and I am so thankful to have you in my life. God bless you.
I'm a self Proclaimed Art Junk Gypsy. I live in the beautiful Napa Valley. I spend a lot of time trudging through thrift stores and antique shops looking for hidden treasures. I have been spotted all over the country, scrounging, dumpster diving and sidewalk shopping (picking through the trash on the sidewalk on big neighborhood clean up days). There is no trip too far for the Art Junk Gypsy. From upcycling fashions and jewelry to reuse crafts and furniture makeovers... if its crafty, old, shabby, rusty or sparkly, I can't resist it. My current passion is jewelry making. I love to travel with my Spaniard, exploring places we've never been, learning about new places, making lovely friends along the way.
