So what is all this about anyway…

It is to share and hope you find some inspiration in my eclectic life that will give you hope, courage and perhaps a little laughter or find something nice that inspires you along the way!

Tea Set in Parlor

As a life-long creative and entrepreneur I have turned each challenge into something…. and I’m still trying to live up to my True Authentic Self or TAS (short for Trina Astor-Stewart) and now I invite you to join me on my journey if you like.

The above photograph of a vintage tea set in the Parlor at Lynde House Museum is from some of my latest escapades in the museum field. I think from the interest we have found at the museum, there is a resurgence in popularity of the ‘fancy tea‘, and I’d like to explore that a bit further too…

From the business of image creation and writing -to sales and food innovator; to museum director and mentor; -wife and mom. Life has handed me many twists and turns. Some full of joy, some not so much. All in all though, I count every day a blessing and all those along the way who have given a kind word or encouragement my ever gratitude!

As long as I can remember, family and friends have been telling me I should share the stories from my life… Each time, I smile and say, “Well, someday I will…” So in the coming year I plan to muster up the courage to wear my heart on my sleeve and share the stories from my life in books and blog…

Who knows? You might find my life and stories interesting, and even give you the courage to share too.  So back to creating, to writing, to image making, to living each day with courage, I start on this new journey one step at a time.
