Hi! I'm Maddie James. I'm a hopeless, (hopeful, according to Joan Wilder) romantic. I'm an occasional rescuer of things that need rescuing, like a homeless kitten, a shelter puppy, or an abandoned antique wicker table. I'm a Food Network junkie, blogger, writer, artist, decorator/repurposer, cook, and book publisher. I work at home. I love working at home. After years of working the 9-to-5 for someone else, I cannot imagine living my life any other way.
