About Me

I am a collector and I am a wanna-be artist.   I have two blogs and from time to time, have opened up others (they weren't too successful).    

I collect and make dollhouse miniatures in quarter scale and 1/12 scale.   I love elephants, black folk art and anything under the art label.  I am especially in love with Assemblage Art, Mixed Media art, oil painting, and collage.

I also love jewelry making.

I retired in 2006 and have totally enjoyed every day since.    I believe people are as happy as they make up their mind to be.    There are so many things I want to do and everyday is a new adventure.

I have two blogs.   This one, Raggedy Kingdom and Junk and Jewels.   The first is dedicated to collections and the other is dedicated to art projects.   Please spend some time and look at both.    

Enjoy!
