Splendid Gardens

As a young girl, I would accompany my mother as she collected, refurbished and restyled her finds to create a beautiful home for our family; for me, it has been a lifetime of appreciating the vintage look.

My passion has always been my home and garden, an 1882 Country Victorian that has been in my family since it was built by my great-grandfather, Frank Dana and where I was born and grew up. I have been collecting unique and special finds over the years, everything from rusty and chippy pieces to crystal chandeliers, vintage linens, china, garden things and old silver; I love it all!
