About Pollyanna

Hi, I am not actually Pollyanna, but Paula.  Pollyanna was always my hero as a child and I love the glad game, its amazing how a gimmick like that can help you through life's travails.

OK, serious stuff aside, I am a SAHM with an empty nest, which means I have the time for all my favorite hobbies.  I love antiques and have found that I love saving them, even if the entire item is not salvageable.  I am like the original recyclers of the depression who remade, redid, refurbished, recreated ... I reinvent. I love putting together useless items to make art or functional stuff.

Other interests include, people, especially those I am related to, books, especially books from the 1800's and their knock offs (Jane Austen holds first place), crafts, scrapbooking, journaling, junquing, my flea market business, my antiques business, blogging, photography, throwing parties ... well what am I not interested in? 

I am an invested Christian.  I try to make my brother Jesus the model for my life, and though I am continually falling short of the goal, it helps me keep my face in the best direction. My relationship with Him and my Heavenly Father also helps me to focus on the most important things in my life.

I love spending time with my children, their spouses and my grandchildren. They are all incredible, interesting and talented people, and I love them all dearly.  And last, but certainly not least,  I have the kindest and most supportive husband on earth and I completely appreciate him.
