items I collect







I was a strange child...I have always loved antiques...when I was 12yrs I obtained my first piece of pressed glass and it grew from there..........







This was the first gailwilsondesign angel I made few years back.

I collect folk art particularly Noah's arks but only handmade..out of real wood... and from local people. The angel with watermelon came from Nancy Thomas in Yorktown, Va. I have many of her items BEFORE she did the made in China thing. The Ark came from a local man that lives a few miles behind me.....sadly he no longer makes them. They are a thing of beauty! Now to get off and go to work..............
