I have had the advantage of waiting tables in greasy diners, been a barista at a French style bakery and spent many late nights as a speakeasy cocktail server, dive bar bartender, Maitre D’ and Management at celebrated, award winning restaurants. Sixteen years of Service Industry experience has implanted in me a life long passion for food, cooking, wine and a deep understanding of hospitality.
My love for old things is rooted in the weekend Flea Market and Thrift store visits I enjoyed during my childhood in the Midwest. I frequently find things that don’t fit my personal collection but are too beautiful to be left behind, you can find those items listed for sale in my etsy shop.
I love sharing images that catch my eye, my favorite recipes, memories from travel and thrift store finds.
