About

I try to live a rural lifestyle in which I am enamoured, I hope it shows in my eclectic little shop.

I am a vintage girl at heart. I love to browse antique shops and attend barn sales where I tend to find a lot of vintage goodies that I offer here and decorate my own home with. I am also a stay at home mom to twin girls and a miniature schnauzer.

I started my little Etsy shop back in 2011, making hats and other items from repurposed wool sweaters. My shop has certainly evolved as I've developed new skills and confidence with my sewing machine, turning my passion toward home decor and whimsical tooth fairy pillows for children.

After making wool items, I turned to another fiber that I loved just as much, burlap...I love burlap, I love how rustic and raw it is. I love how burlap can be both formal and…

After making wool items, I turned to another fiber that I loved just as much, burlap...I love burlap, I love how rustic and raw it is. I love how burlap can be both formal and casual at the same time. I love stenciling everything by hand, handcutting every stencil for every order, every time. I'm always thinking up new ideas for my pillows, I don't want to get bored with my designs.

I also love everything vintage and farmhouse. I love old typewriters, old feedsacks, old books, and vintage furniture. I am a true animal lover. I have a miniature schnauzer and I used to own and show Quarter Horses. Animals are a true passion of mine, and I hope it shows in my designs.

I'm always trying to change things around, improve and add new designs and items. I love what I do and I'm always looking to the future.

I hope you see something you like and I am always looking to incorporate new ideas into a design, if you have an idea, I would love to try it out for you!

Please enjoy my designs, but do not take them for your own, thank you.
