I'm Darbie.

My husband and I recently took the plunge and left Brooklyn for upstate NY. We traded in our rented railroad apartment in Greenpoint for a three-story Victorian in Kingston. We live here with our two cats, Steve and Julian, and our bird, Little Admiral.

I'm a nester and a collector and I love nothing more than hunting for treasures at yard sales and antique stores. I'm happiest when rummaging through piles of dusty old stuff.

Some stuff I collect: vintage glasses, suitcases, antique photos, old cards, books, records, antique bottles, anything cat related, old magazines, frames, tea towels, polaroids, paper ephemera, sewing supplies, ornaments, weird needlepoint pillows, paper lanterns, obsolete office supplies, hat boxes, fashion illustrations, children's drawings, pine cones, acorns, feathers, and stray animals.

Hmm...what else? I do art restoration, dabble in graphic design, make things, and play music in Bishop Allen and The Last Names.

And I'm a Sagittarius.
