I am a child of the Sixties masquerading as a teacher, wife, mother and grandmother, and a sometimes gardener, decorator, and cook. I've always been an avid "junker" and enjoy finding items that I can remake or recycle into something beautiful or useful. I hope I am passing this trait on to future generations!
