Happy Valentines Day my friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with love. I know a lot of people think that Valentines Day is a "Hallmark holiday" but I think it is a great opportunity to let all of the special people in your life know just how much you love them. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by the love of my family and so many wonderful friends.
I am originally from Oregon but now live with my husband and our beautiful nine year old son in a small town in Colorado. He is truly a wise old soul and the love of my life. He teaches me something new every day and reminds me to look at the world through the eyes of a child. We are also blessed with three amazing children who are all grown up and live in Texas and California. I am the shop owner of "The Village Merchants", which is a sixteen shop marketplace with a mix of clothing, jewelry, antiques, and home decor. I have an uncontrolable passion for interior design and love everything old, rusted, and especially anything adorned with chippy paint. I love junking and finding ways to give old treasures a new life.
