About the Garage Sale Queen
I'm a redneck Martha Stewart (without the stock); a southern Erma
Bombeck (ask your mom, if you don't remember her); a white trash
Rachel Ashwell; and a sweet potato queen kinda-gal before sweet
potato queens were cool.
I've been an artist all my life. But my "real jobs" were mostly in the
non-profit world. I have also been a caregiver for most of my adult
life. It has been Mom, Dad, the son, the grandson or an entire
Well, it seems "my time" has come. Those non-profit years taught
me to create projects and pull off major events on shoestring
budgets. Working with countless volunteers has enabled me to
recognize and cultivate others' talents. It's great; I'm creating
unique, fun art and teaching others to find their own creative nitch.
My style has been called many things. Shabby chic, trash to
treasure, flea market finds, even antiquing. I call it the "Art of
Recycling." My inspiration comes from what I find. It might be old
dishes from a flea market or a discarded fan cage sitting out on
the curb on trash day. But most of my "inspirations" are found at
Garage Sales. Lord, how I do love Garage Sales. It's the "thrill of
the hunt" and getting a great deal. I've always loved to shop and I've
always loved a bargain.
And I do love to talk. I've shared my imaginative ideas with folks
throughout the South. Gotta group? Let's talk!
And I absolutely adore commission orders. Special gifts or
personal art for your business or garden made with recycled
materials. Go Green. Purchase art from found objects!
