      I love decorating school much more than I enjoyed going;)

  12. Lora, you can put together a vintage vignette like no other! I always enjoy every detail. They feel like a virtual trip through a curated museum exhibit and I so enjoy them.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Is that why I like museum exhibits so much? Maybe that will be my retirement career;)
