I am happily married to my high school sweetheart Ray and we have two beautiful children, Lacey and Allie . I have been in the decorating business for 20+ years. I have a passion for vintage items for I feel that they are a piece of the past that tells a unique story. I love helping others see vintage furniture in a new light and my desire is to create the most memorable event possible. Over the years I have had the pleasure of helping friends and family plan special events, and I believe that is what inspired me to want to make it into a business.
Kacey and I met several years ago when she was my daughter's cheer coach and mentor. I love her creative spirit and the way she always leads by example. She truly was a blessing to my daughter. As my daughter changed and grew into a beautiful young lady, I truly believe Kacey made a big impact in her life by being a positive role model. I knew then Kacey was a person I would love to work with and we would make a great team.
I love to entertain! I also enjoy planning and decorating for events! Even as a little girl, I could not wait to set the table for my grandmother Loretta before our family dinners! She has taught me so much about the art of hospitality and I am forever grateful.
My love for antiques and collectibles came from my parents influence at a very young age. They are collectors at heart and instilled in me a passion for all things vintage and unique. As a family we would spend almost every Saturday going "junking" at swap meets and flea markets! My mother taught me to pay attention to detail and that with a little or even a lot of extra work you can achieve anything.
I met Natalie several years ago when her daughter became a member of the team that I was coaching. I learned very quickly that she is a dedicated, hard working and spunky parent volunteer! She is dependable and always willing to lend a creative hand! When Natalie approached me about starting a rental business, I knew instantly that it would be a successful partnership!
I want to say a BIG thank you to my husband, Scott, for his love and encouragement! He knows to just smile and look the other way when I drag home new "treasures"! I love you with all of my heart! You, Destri, and Andrew are my pride and JOY!
