About me

Gender Female
Occupation Health Information Analyst
Location The Sunny South, United States
Introduction I am a happily married mother of two sons. I enjoy spending time and traveling with family and friends, and all that goes into creating a happy home...cooking, gardening, decorating, sewing, and finding delight in the next surprise that life brings my way.
Interests I love needlecrafts, gardening, decorating, cooking, collecting dishes, porcelain, books and vintage postcards (paricularly holiday), and travel. Estate and garage/yard sales are particular favorites, as is creating a home for family and friends to enjoy.
Favorite Movies It's a Wonderful Life, The Illusionist, The Best Years of Our Lives, Out of Africa, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Oceans Eleven and Oceans Twelve, The Hours, the "Bourne" movie series. Some I especially enjoy for the decor: Father of the Bride I/II, Something's Gotta Give
Favorite Music A little of everything...classical, jazz, pop and progressive country. I'm particularly fond of Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Tony Bennett, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Edwin McCain, Bruce Hornsby, Renee Fleming, Josh Grobin, Luciano Pavarotti.
Favorite Books I love Southern Literature, paricularly Eudora Welty, Fannie Flagg and Michael Lee West. I also enjoy mysteries and books about art history, architecture, travel, interior design and garden design. Charles Faudree's, Charlotte Moss' and Bunny Williams' books, New York Apartments, and the recent books about Scalamandre and Brunschwig & Fils are wonderful (great window treatments---my weakness!)
