About

I am a mother of 4 and grandma to six sweeties, I was born in the mid fifties and love all the things from back then.

I have always had a soft spot for anything from the 40's and 50's; nik naks, ephemera, old books, etc. I remember playing with my grandmothers tiny ceramic treasures that were kept on the crescent moon shelves, sorting through her pretty button collection and watching her making her quilts and clothes.

I collect whatever vintage treasures make me feel good.

I put together packets of vintage images that I personally cut out, trim up, and have ready for you to use for your projects. I collect these from old magazines,…

I put together packets of vintage images that I personally cut out, trim up, and have ready for you to use for your projects. I collect these from old magazines, books, etc that are beat up and at the end of their life. I guess I'm a scavenger of the images that are still there and could be used in some way.

My favorite craft has always been finding unwanted items in thrift stores and giving them a facelift and a new home. Now it is called "altered art", but my love for it began before it had a name.

I hope you enjoy what I offer and if some of my items find their way to your home, that they will make you smile. They are chosen with love and will be shipped in the same manner as I would like to receive them.
