Laverne Arena
My name is Laverne and I have a soft spot for tomatoes, fresh flowers, and all living creatures (except spiders. Spiders are my nemesis). I am terribly, indecently, passionately curious. I have a sometimes simple, sometimes complex, and usually self-contradictory personality and an unfortunate tendency to daydream. Oh the lovely things is a catalog of various treasures- objects, ideas, people, works of art. It's the place where I share my love for independent talents and creative people, add pretty wearables to my imaginary wardrobe, get my craft on, and a lot of other random things.
