I have so wanted to go to designer school for many years now. I realized I had a talent for balancing ,color and texture in fashion when I was about 21. I had my own home and went through a few years of figuring out that one had to make things last. Mixing and matching classic outfits and home furnishings along with solid artwork and my, "favorite", antiques, are the only way to look great have a beautiful environment to live in and stay on a budget. I have learned to sew and love to collect vintage patterns. I get some of my best inspirations for my own designs from them that, alas, are yet to be taken from the paper to the table! Yet , Great News, I have found Polyvore and I am learning about design in what I consider to be one of the most fun ways possible for me. You see I live right in the middle of Utah,Yep', we have the marker right up the road. Now, it is not such a bad place to live, however it's small really, small! I grew up in Santa Barbara Co.,California!
