This writing something about yourself is not an easy thing to do. Either way here it goes. Everything I make comes from my love of things "vintage" with a spin on the time I was a teenager myself, 90's. Metals turn my senses off and dull my imagination so many of the items decorating my home are those items that are reminiscent of my Grandmother's or Hip Aunt's house when I was younger. I make these items because I believe it gives people a sense of warmth and comfort. Also being raised by a single Mom I have learned the value of a buying beautiful unique things that do not break your wallet. In my crazy love for things vintage I have been pleasantly surprised when moving here to Utah from a Houston, Texas. The beauty in the surrounding areas is only matched by the incredible selection of things vintage.

This writing something about yourself is not an easy thing to do. Either way here it goes. Everything I make comes from my love of things "vintage" with a spin on the time I was a teenager myself, 90's. Metals turn my senses off and dull my imagination so many of the items decorating my home are those items that are reminiscent of my Grandmother's or Hip Aunt's house when I was younger.

Also being raised by a single Mom I have learned the value of a buying beautiful unique things that do not break your wallet. In my crazy love for things vintage I have been pleasantly surprised when moving here to Utah from a Houston, Texas. The beauty in the surrounding areas is only matched by the incredible selection of things vintage. Also there is a huge fascination with me surrounding the color blue and anything that can tell a story of a dream. I have never been one of those girls who could or liked the dainty jewelry and have found myself not wearing a lot because I do not like anything from the stores.

On top of trying to start this store here on Etsy I am also a student working towards a B.A. in Accounting and a mother of two boy age 13 and 10. I spent most of their lives happily revolving my life around their care and upbringing. With the youngest it was mainly centered around keeping him from going into diabetic seizures and comas since he was a year and a half. I think that is where my need to send something beautiful, unique and inexpensive out into the world came from. They have both made me absolutely nuts and made life mean so much more than it ever could without them. We moved here to Utah because of my other love who surprisingly came in the form of a Sargent in the Army who had just retired after 24 years in. For those who are counting there is an age difference and I guess in a tone of ironic hilarity I could say he added to my love for things from the same time period. So I think two paragraphs gives everyone a clear impression of who I am and what kind of product I sell on here.

My promises:
Each piece you receive are unique and you will not have to worry about your friend walking in and wearing the same thing.
Each piece will be made to last most tugging and pulling for those of us who have little kids or just live a hectic life.
Your items will be sent out and shipped within 2 business days and Saturday.
