Welcome to my Etsy shop! Here is my story...My grandmother & mother are the ones who inspired me to love unique antiques and history of our past. My mother & grandmother used to own a little antique shop on the corner of Main Street Downtown Pleasanton, California while I was a baby. My grandmother used to own Father Natures in Downtown Danville as well selling antiques. I used to come in after school and explore all over the shop, put on funny outfits or hats, read great story books, and play hide in seek under old school desks with my brothers. My brothers loved military memorabilia, guns or trucks...now my older brother is an USAF Pilot for our country..and one wanting to be a US Coast Guard. I have loved antiques ever since. As, we got older they had to sell the shops and say goodbye. The shop closed recently after..and my gma moved to Arizona. Her house is everything touched or transformed into something beautiful.

As, we got older they had to sell the shops and say goodbye. The shop closed recently after..and my gma moved to Arizona. Her house is everything touched or transformed into something beautiful. Everything she touches becomes a masterpiece.

My grandmother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's and she is such a creative lady. I get all my creativity in life from her. Sadly, as her creativity fades..I want to pass it on to others and show the passion behind my store and my love for her. I want to continue her love for all the wonderful antiques, trunks, headboards & etc. She finds such beauty in something so odd and ugly looking to the normal eye. Just like her... I love finding old trinkets and shabby chic furniture as well. It is my passion to re-upholster, paint, and distress old furniture. I like keeping furniture original as well and not paint them. They have such a unique style and so much history of our past. I love all types of vintage items and love hand-making things. I attended The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and my major was Interior Design and truly found my passion for creativity.

These aspects inspired my life so much that I planned my own wedding using antiques and vintage items that were all so unique. Our theme was vintage english tea party! I decorated everything myself using beautiful laces, fabrics, ribbon, shades of burlap, recyclable paper and etc. It was like Alice in wonderland came to life. I wanted to feel such magic and beauty around me. Now I offer a line of beautiful wedding & event decorations to you. Enjoy looking at my shop!
