About

Beach House Living silverware is about adding a touch of elegance and whimsy to everyday.

I'm an avid collector of stuff that I'm not always sure what I will do with it but I enjoy the process of thinking and planning about it. I have notebooks and scraps of paper of sketches and plans.

I'm constantly performing R & D especially on my re-imagined items. For every one you see there were plenty that I either didn't like, fell completely short of the vision I dreamed up, or required equipment that wouldn't fit in the house.

My work has appeared in Bon Appetit, Flea Market Gardens, Stuff Boston, and B Magazine, The Washingtonian gift guide in print and on line, Gotham Magazine, and a cookbook titled Love Manuela.

We reside in a tiny by modern standards 1920's home with our Dachshunds that were all adopted from shelters or rescue agencies. I do a fair amount of work by indoor and outdoor fireplaces.There are three different work spaces depending on the project. A secondary building crammed with stuff that I find also houses various saws, grinders, sanders, tools many of which are vintage and still going strong. There is also a tiny bench in the garage and of course the dining room has become more of a crafting area.

My favorite tools are the ones passed down from my father and include anything from hammers, vices, saws, drill bits, and the old grinder. As a child many afternoons were spent watching my father use them. He was ahead of the times in what today is known as recycling. He was always finding novel uses for things or taking things apart and creating something new with them. Old desks became shelves, tool boxes or waste baskets and, a claw foot tub became a lounge....My father still never ceases to amaze me. My Mother has been my creative cheerleader for as long as I can remember. My parents and my sweetheart provide great encouragement and support even to my most out there R & D.

Per Etsy requirements we have now become a H & W team as of 3-2011 both of us stamp silverware. Ribbons, flower pins, paper tags, favor bags, metal tags, bracelets, regatta rags™, clay tags, ornaments, jewelry...etc. are made by me.

*Other shops Dumpster Decorators, Mr.and Mrs.silverware,Wedding cake forks,BlueSailStudios1. I stamp and handle all supplies, materials, photos, listings, polishing, wrapping, and packing for shipping for each item.

I am also the designer and original creator of Regatta Rags™ recycled sail gift tags and decorations and Regatta Bags™ small zip cases wine bags and totes as well as Wedding dress flowers ™ and jeweled vintage stamped silverware and free formed designed art spoons,

Etsy is a wonderful forum. I am so very happy to have a shop here, as well as purchase from such a wide variety of handmade items.

I am grateful to the many fellow Etsian's that have featured my work in their treasuries. I believe their time and efforts have helped my Etsy shop become what it is today.

Thank you for stopping by.
