Q: IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY, WHAT ANTIQUE OR COLLECTIBLE WOULD YOU BUY IMMEDIATELY?

A: I would buy an over-the-top crystal chandelier for my foyer. Maybe a bell shaped one. Even the arms would be encrusted with "jewels"!

Q: WHAT IS THE MOST INTERESTING ITEM YOU HAVE FOUND LATELY?

A: I just bought a little wooden box that is called a travel kitchen. It is so cool.

Q: WHAT ANTIQUE TREND DO YOU LOVE RIGHT NOW?

A: Some of the French Country accessories are good.

Q: WHAT GENRE OF ANTIQUES DO YOU HAVE AS A COLLECTION? IS THERE A GENRE OF ANTIQUES OR COLLECTIBLES YOU WOULD LIKE TO COLLECT IN THE FUTURE?

A: I love a more formal genre. I like wonderful! I love fantasy decorating and wonderful pastels!

Q: WHAT ANTIQUE ERA DO YOU NOT LIKE?

A: Primitives.

Q: ARE ANTIQUES A GOOD INVESTMENT?

A: I think a big ticket item could be a good investment, but I would be sure to do my footwork and background work.

Q: HAVE YOU EVER RECYCLED OR UPCYCLED AN ANTIQUE/VINTAGE ITEM?

A: Absolutely. Do it all the time and love it! Right now I'm getting ready to turn a sewing cabinet, which has a door with a drop down table, into a makeup cabinet/vanity. I am going to paint it with Annie Sloan paint and will put a small chandelier inside it.
