Divas Shop

The Divas Beginnings

My love for vintage goes way back. My love for antiques is equally as important to me. I had the opportunity to mix those two loves with my sense of color and design to open my own Brick and Mortar store. I opened Eclectic Designs for Living on Main Street in Pennsylvania.

I was able to live my dreams for 5 years. I had great fun, opportunity to expand my ideas, to meet people and introduce them to Vintage in all its glory. Dresses, jewelry and furs. Little did I know it was a wonderful way to GO GREEN.

As life has a way of changing, I had to give up this wonderous shop. I have included a slide show of ECLECTIC A WAY OF LIVING
I hope you enjoy and please share your thoughts with me and others.

Now I am TheEclecticDiva selling online at Etsy. I hope you will browse
through my shop online and see my little pieces of the past.

Spring is Just Around the Corner

Yes the wind is still a little chilly, and I have seen a few flakes of snow, and I think I will still see some winter weather, but I feel spring coming!!! There are a few days that are warmer and I see a few little plants pushing up and I am not feeling as blue as winter usually makes me.

I thought I'd give you a little peek into what summer is for me. I am an avid gardener and being in Pennsylvania, that is my focus when I know jack Frost will not visit again.

But right now I will share a little of winter with you...can you see my little cardinals?

Here is a view from my bedroom window, couldn't bring myself to venture out that day.

Now a peek into this summer and why I look forward to my gardens, getting my hands dirty.
