About me

Location Blogging from the Beautiful Pacific Northwest
Introduction I am a widow, mother of two wonderful daughters. I am an Anglican without a local church at the moment. I enjoy reading English history and the history of the English language, and I collect books on the subject. I love traveling in Europe, visiting friends and exploring historic sites. I love to wander through garage sales, thrift stores, and brocante shops for treasures. I am an editor at an Oregon news digest.
