Patty D.'s Profile
Welcome to Some Kinda Wonderful!
I credit my interest in vintage and re-purposing to the thrills of thrift shopping at an early age. Growing up, making—not buying— what you needed was a necessity. I think I was a DIY goner the first time I cut holes with little blunt scissors in a fabric scrap and shoved it onto my Barbie doll as a new dress. As an adult, it was a natural transition into vintage “up-scaling” or “re-purposing.” Nothing gives me more satisfaction than turning an ugly duckling item bound for the trash into a white swan. It’s the transformational process with my pieces, as with life, that rocks my socks.
My love of vintage is equaled by my love of repurposing and upcycling to make unique usable items. I spend lots of time modifying and perfecting each crafted product line, and I believe Etsy is the perfect venue...
