Serial Killer Drama

I've decided I am addicted to crime dramas, especially the ones about chasing serial killers.  My favorite is Dexter, I can't wait til Sunday's new season premiere.  Last night I watched Criminal Minds, loved it.  Tonight it's CSI and The Mentalist.  I sometimes wander what this says about me and the millions of other viewers.  Are we obsessed with violence or seeing criminals caught?  I don't know, I just know I love it.  We all think we've become forensics experts. We certainly look at things differently as a result of this immersion in crime solving via tv.  I remember when I was on the grand jury a few years ago.  The first thing the DA told us was, 'We don't have all the evidence you see on CSI."  It was so disappointing to see how little forensics and even common sense is involved in the actual gathering of evidence. It often takes years to get DNA evidence or rape kits processed.  DISAPPOINTING!!  Maybe that's why I like tv, they almost always catch the bad guy!

Hi, I'm Katrina and the picture you see is my dog Cassy, she's my baby. She's an 11 year old Keeshond and spoiled rotten.  She is currently an only child which has made her very bossy.
I started Kat in a Korner in November, 2008. After being a Psychologist for 20 years I felt ready to embrace the joy in life. I've always loved animals, nature, handmade things, jewelry and antiques.

After collecting for 25 years, I decided I would like to share my passion with other collectors and nature lovers. When I discovered Etsy I thought it could be a perfect fit for my shop.

We sell handmade pottery, vintage collectibles, animal lovers gifts, handmade sterling silver jewelry, vintage jewelry, garden lovers gifts and pretty much anything we think is cool and unique. Our physical shop is downtown Prestonsburg, KY. We are in a 101 year old building with the original tin ceiling and 50+ year old crystal chandeliers and jewelry cases. I love the character that envelopes the shop.

Feel free to add me on twitter, facebook, or etsy!
