Carla - After moving around a bit, is now back in Chicago. Currently turning upstairs of her parent's former house into a bed and breakfast in the up and coming trendy Northwest side of Chicago. After extensive remodeling, it is just about ready to launch. Also, just opened a pet day care and short-term boarding in her home, Carla's Bed and Biscuit! Find her on the website DOGVACAY.COM - search in Chicago area, Carla's Bed and Biscuit. She has her own etsy shop, WistfulPixie.etsy.com which has more vintage items and some upcycled vintage creations.

Make sure to check out Carla's daughter's etsy store, HollysDays.etsy.com for delightful handmade cards for every occasion. Holly is also my Godchild - so you know she is perfect :}
