My love of antiques started as a child with trips with my mother to Antiques shops. Our home was filled with collections of early American art and furnishings, brass candlestick collections, Martha Washington chairs and early oil portraits.
I found my love for renovating antique homes after my husband and I purchased an abandoned sea captains home on the corner of Water and Main streets. During the year long renovation I realized how important it was for me to incorporate pieces of the homes past into the updated design. I needed to tell the story and my love for mixing vintage pieces with new was solidified. Creating a home filled with pieces I loved and found pieces became a lifestyle.
Through several more antique home renovations, a love of digging through antique shops and going to auctions I came to realize my passion for all things found. My happy place is with our family, renovating homes, being on the water, with our dogs, anything design, long beach days, barns and farmhouses.
