About This Blog
Howdy! My name is Maggie and I have always loved arts & crafts since I was a little kid. My step-dad taught me to find treasures amongst other peoples’ trash, by picking up random stuff off the curb and digging through the “free box” outside the local antique store. I guess that was the beginning of my career as a “junker.” I have a passion for all things primitive and country, and I also LOVE:
Any and all antiques, art, photography, web design, wild flowers, dogs, exploring creepy, old, abandoned buildings and cemeteries, kickball, Fleetwood Mac, bluegrass and classic country music, American Pickers and Pawn Stars on the History Channel, Family Guy, old black and white cartoons, Halloween and Christmas, barn sales and flea markets, unsweetened iced tea and beer, and spending time with my friends and family!
When I am not working during the day as an ophthalmic photographer, I have a small side business called Upstate Primitives & Gifts. I specialize in making signs and other crafty things. I also seek out unique primitive and antique items, in hopes of bringing them back to life for another generation to enjoy. I just opened a small space at The Carriage Place, a wonderful craft & antique co-op in Brockport, New York!
