About

My father was a jockey and he rode in the early days of Willie Shoemaker. My mother was a housewife and she believed that horse racing was a gambling sport. My brother was a Kearny High football captain. And I adored fashion and style in the 1940’s Heyday of Hollywood - along with my Irish Setter, Bonnie. By the time I was nine years old, I never left the house unless I was coiffed, manicured and ready to be photographed; I had accumulated a collection of handbags and purses that spanned 3 decades.

I am a longtime member of the Wearable Arts Class of Laguna Woods that meets weekly, a Victorian Tea Society that stages fundraising teas in the community and work part-time at the Heritage Museum as a docent for grade school children explaining how people in the Victorian era lived. In between times, I craft, sew and hand make thousands of different wearable accessories and items in my light and airy salon by the beach. Sometimes I travel and hunt for antique and vintage gems in shops all over California. Over the months to come I intend to fill my Etsy store with beautiful things made by me, or vintage items found - all exclusively for you, from the Golden State of California. Thank you for stopping by to visit. Do let me hear from you from time to time!
