Hello! I started on the GW over at THS on the crafting forum. It wasn't until about a year and a half ago that I meandered on over to take a look at the garden side and I've been here ever since.

I absolutely love garage sales and thrift stores. It's amazing what you can pick up for under a dollar.... I just can't resist a bargain. If I buy something but I'm not sure what to do with it, I just wait a little bit, and the incredible people on the Garden Junk forum will inevitably come up with a use for it.

I've only been gardening for the last two years. The first year was strictly petunias, marigolds, impatiens and morning glory's. (Kind of hard to mess those up) This year I got a little braver and added some zinnias, ferns, hostas, caladiums, and several other things. Oh! And tomatoes. I grew my very first tomatoes!!!! Anyway, I've got the bug now. I'm trying to build my seed supply up with new things to try next year and the people at the seed exchange have been really generous with their seeds. Thank you to all of those people who have let me send SASE!

My eventual goal is to not have ANY grass in my back yard. I want to look outside and see color everywhere! I'm going to try Winter Sowing for the first time this year. I'm really looking forward to it, and hope that I have enough seedlings to share with my mom. I've been eyeing her bare flower beds, and just thinking about how great they would look with flowers!

My biggest "wish" in life is to someday go to Scotland. I want to explore old castles and visit the Highlands.

I live in: United States
