About

Just a simple girl who loves flea market finds and beautiful junk!! I love vintage whimsy and quirky creations.

My sister has a degree in fashion and acts as my voice of reason. There have been many times I have heard her say to me, "NEVER wear that again!". With the necklaces I figure if she likes them, then something must be right. She taught me that things don't have to be matchy matchy, they just have to go! My cousin also inspires me to step out of the box a little. I have always been the safe one in the bunch. Playing it safe isn't as fun as taking risks and creating things that are awesome together that wouldn't normally go together. My mom is super awesome and is my "junkin" buddy. I can always talk her into coming with me to find all kinds of treasures. The bad thing is that she never seems to tell me that I don't need something! It's always, "Oh yes, you do need that!"…

Where is the practical mom who prevents me from spending all of my money in one place? My dad...he also has a love for all things junk! Usually if I need something, he can find it in his garage or will show up with it a few days later. And then there is my husband...my wonderful husband who just shakes his head when I drag out all of my "junk". You know he loves it!!

I am a kindergarten teacher who LOVES LOVES LOVES her job! Crafting is my way of winding down after a long day of corraling 5 year olds! It's fun, relaxing, and makes me so excited to create a new piece that is so different from the last one that I love equally as much!

Thanks for visiting my shop! Hope you love my stuff as much as I do.
