I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

A Little Whimsy

I haven't been visiting much of late
I moved my antiques store
which was quite an ordeal
I'm now unboxing and setting up my new place
  consuming much of my days... and nights
My new shop is in a quirky local so I named it
Hole in the Wall
the previous name just didn't transfer well
I hope to return to my more normal routines soon

Just down and around the corner

They give life
they shelter life
