Welcome to Heirloom Radiance. Yes, that image is of me--a Sicilian male admirer on Facebook somehow created that and I love it! I am a poet, musician, doll artisan and connoisseur of lovely things, such as beautifully made dolls, jewelry, rugs, vintage apparel, antiques--those things that we all love to have around us in our homes. I m starting out small and simple, with a small collection of rings I have chosen carefully, for their artisanship and beauty--and my latest baby doll. And oh yes, my latest collection of poetry with cover by a wonderful Midwestern painter. More paintings, bling, volumes of poetry, dramatic negligees, memorabilia, coming soon. Visit me often! Cover image: the great soprano Anna Netrebko, as Violetta Valery, La Traviata.
