About

Hello!

I'm Tamara, and I live in a quiet shady corner on the edge of Indianapolis, in a mid-century home that was built by my grandparents, with one great guy, three great rescue cats and a plethora of deer, raccons, and assorted wildlife that actually seem to be the ones in charge around here.

I began my career as a designer for the theatre, but then moved on to running a catalog business with my family that is dedicated to all things hot air balloon related. After 15 years, I found myself running out of inspiration, so this store is my newest passion, though really it is the culmination of a lifetime of collecting and appreciating great design.

Hello!

I'm Tamara, and I live in a quiet shady corner on the edge of Indianapolis, in a mid-century home that was built by my grandparents, with one great guy, three great rescue cats and a plethora of deer, raccons, and assorted wildlife that actually seem to be the ones in charge around here.

I began my career as a designer for the theatre, but then moved on to running a catalog business with my family that is dedicated to all things hot air balloon related. After 15 years, I found myself running out of inspiration, so this store is my newest passion, though really it is the culmination of a lifetime of collecting and appreciating great design. When I'm not dreaming up fun new items to produce for the shop, I'm enjoying my other long-time interests - camping in our vintage Airstream, shopping great flea markets and antique shops, or on lucky occasions - just enjoying a great classic movie and some home-cooked meals from my talented better half.

I am not an artist in the classical sense, but rather a person who appreciates great art and design and who - with any luck - can combine the two and create something altogether new and different. It is my goal to share with you a colorful history of beautiful design and ornamentation that not only stands the test of time, but that when viewed from a new perspective and married with fun and practical modern accessories, can bring a little bit of that original artistry from the past into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy your visit!
