    I just read an old article on her while waiting at my daughter vocal lesson! I love her style, and she is more down to earth that I thought… I love that she always dresses up when traveling, and she love to cook!
    Love it, Karolyn

    Very inspiring! I am an avid traveler myself and I ALWAYS bring something back home for display, be it home textiles, home décor, tableware, books. It is the best souvenir ever. And it makes your home unique and full of memories.
