February's Featured member

Our featured member for February is
Sandy of Cottage Heirlooms
Here is Sandy's bio from her member page...She has been a member since March of 2010 and has participated in our swaps and other activities..

I live in beautiful Derby City USA and I am married to my fav firefighter, Mr. B, for 38 years. I am the Mom of two beautiful daughters, each in the nursing profession. The sunshine in my life is my two grandchildren, Wesley is 4 and Eliza just celebrated her 2nd birthday July 14th. To them, I am "Nan".

I love all things vintage, cottage, romantic, and pink and enjoy the “find” in attaining these things, some (many) of which I have a difficult time parting. My favorites are antique/vintage linens, vintage jewelry, pottery and vanity collectibles. Mr. B believes all my "stuff" is an obsession, I prefer to describe it as a true passion and appreciation for art, history and a mix of childhood memories together with the warm feelings growing up in the "Wonder Years"!

Over the last several years, I find myself returning to favorite skills gained long before entering into Motherhood ~ sewing, crocheting and journaling. I enjoy learning and have added to this portfolio ~ photography, scrapbooking, digital scarpbooking and dabbling in home décor. I do not proclaim to be an expert at any of these but I enjoy the challenges as well as sharing my gifts and knowledge with others

I did open an etsy store recently, Pure Cottage and I also have website where I sell many of my "pretties". Each a work in progress. I look forward to making new friends who have common interests, who love to share ideas, their arts and crafts and collections.
