About Me


My parents met in England and that's where I was born. My father was in the Air Force so I grew up a military brat. I loved moving and living in different places. I have not been back to England since I was eleven but have very fond memories of living there with my nana and pup(grandpa). 
I'm an Army National Guard wife, mother of three grown boys, mother in law to two wonderful young women and granny to one beautiful new grand daughter. I made several trips to the Rochester area over a period of years to visit my family who had moved there when my father retired, and simply loved the Finger Lakes Region. When my husband got out of the Army he agreed to moving to Upstate New York. That was almost 20 years ago and I have loved every minute of it. And yes, I look forward to the first snow fall every year!
I have four dogs that keep me busy and six birds that chatter all day long. I live in an older home that I have never stopped working on! The littlest project tends to spawn half a dozen more! I love gardening and once had a very  large garden. Over the past few years I had to decrease the size of my garden several times to make it more manageable.....oh my aching back...but I just can't give it up completely! I love sewing and creating, baking, photography, learning and sharing....and I even like writing once in awhile.
