A Gulf Coast Christmas

Meet the Self Confessed Lamp Tramp ~ a lovely lass who is working to put herself, life, and home back in order after Katrina devastated the entire region she calls home...the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.
 "When we had to move out of our Katrina flooded home my lamps moved with us. They overwhelmed the small house we lived in during rebuilding and every one laughed at me for having so many lamps. But they were one of the few things that gave me hope. And that's why I'm a LAMP TRAMP!
Besides being a lover of lamps, this talented lady really knows how to create beauty in her surroundings. Her Gulf Coast Front Door is proof of that!
