More of Me

My name is "Sandy"
I am known by my family as a "Jack of all Trades.

I started my own business,  doing Event Planning and Catering for both the University of Illinois and my community. With the addition of a Bridal Shop, Weddings became my specialty. For a time I made silk flower arrangements for weddings and delivered them to the cruise ships at the Port of Miami.
I learned all sorts of crafts, needlework and everyday home improvements from my mother.. she too loved to work with her hands and was a large help to me and my businesses. Mom was famous for her "Cheese Cake", and made it for hundreds at our banquets.

Garage sales are my passion and I'm not ashamed to pick up something that looks like a 'find' from someones trash. It's been a long time since I've bought furniture new, why buy new when I can 'make it new'!

I'm the mom to three grown children and 4 grown step children, who all live far from me.  They have given me 4 grandsons and one grand daughter whom I adore.
My blog came about with my need to share my talents and interests. I'm usually making or baking, hammering or sawing something.

I have lived in 4 countries and in 7 different States, then after my last child grew up and left home I moved to the place of my birth, Florida. Bought a Townhouse and now am in the process of totally revamping both up and downstairs.
