All about me

 Hi...I'm Patti!  Welcome to Pandora's Box.  I live in central NY and I am a retired family and consumer science teacher (2012).  I enjoy all types of crafting, decorating and cooking.  I have been an avid MacKenzie-Childs collector since 1983 and love to share my collection. I also admire the work of Susan Branch and have a grand collection of her books!  
My husband and I love to travel, especially on a cruise ship - we have visited most of the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Alaska, Italy, France, Spain, Montenegro, Honduras and Belize.  My Mackenzie-Childs Traveling Tote is almost always with me! 
My 2 daughters are grown and no longer live at home.  I have four grandsons who are the light of my life.  It's just John and I at home now, and until recently the most important resident was Pandora, our 17 year old cat - she was the boss and is truly missed!  
Enjoy your visit...
