About

Welcome to my blog, my name's Christie...it's nice to meet you!  I'm glad you stopped by to find out a little more about me.... 

I'm 47 years old, and was born and raised in the deep south, where there's usually some country cooking going on, and a family event most always involves gathering around the table. 

I find joy in the simplest things in life... like watching a sunset, walking in nature, sipping tea with sugar and cream, eating chocolate, and coloring with my little grand-daughter,  just to name a few. The simple things in life don't usually cost a thing....and they really are the best.  I am a Christian, I love the Lord, He's the keeper of my heart, and I am so thankful for my relationship with Jesus.  

Like most women, I have many interests and I am a wearer of many hats, life is full and it seems to get fuller every day. Am I right? I've spent most of my life being a stay at home wife and mother, (although I once was a hair dresser).  I've been married to the love of my life for 26 years now. I'm a mother to two grown sons, one of which married in 2012. I've recently become a grandma again to a beautiful baby boy, with a head full of dark hair. I'm also a grandma to a sweet little grand-girl that's 3 yrs. old, (she's a big sister now) and  she calls me Memaw.  I consider my family, my life's treasure and there's nothing I'd rather do than spend time with them. 

When I'm not spending time with them, I'm taking care of household duties... I'm the official keeper of the home, (laundry lady, cleaning lady, household seamstress, and the cook), and I do, most of the time, love every minute of it all. I take great pride in all things home. As the old cliche goes, home is where my heart is. I enjoy home decorating, especially seasonal stuff. I also like hunting for vintage treasures, I love a bargain, and I enjoy frequenting flea markets, junk stores and thrift stores, and even a yard sale when I can find one. I'm a wannabe crafty creator/artist, and a lover of nature and nature photography. My husband and I try to get out in nature every chance we can. 

I have an Etsy Shop, and Blog and it has been a fun hobby for me. I've always had a love for time worn old things, and with being a collector of vintage treasures for years now, I had an overflow of pretty things and limited space, so back in 2008, I decided to share some of my things with those that have a love of the same things as me at Etsy.....so my Etsy shop was born. I've enjoyed every minute of this journey. I've met some of the most wonderful people along the way too. It's been great connecting with others that have the same interests as I do. 

I hope you'll have fun browsing my blog and shop.

Thanks for stopping by!
