A beautiful time of year here in the PNW The grass is green ~ the Rhodies are AMAZING and the spirit of positive issues are in the works all over cities and small towns. Etsy's changes continue to rock tho the banner's on steroids aren't for me they do look good in other people's shops. More bouquets to come.Orders are out for the month of May and I'm working on the mentioned in town Trashion Show !


April 2016

Changes are in the wind and I'm looking forward to April 5th where Etsy will roll out its new design for vendors. Easy to use I like that etsy keeps up with the ever changing world of online shopping creating ways to keep our shops looking fresh.

Just a little sweetness ~ just a little light ` It is one of my favorite dead songs and is on my mind this morning. The clouds are parting here in the pacific northwest and with that comes budding flowers and an explosion of blossoms coming from the plum trees ! Shades of pink alternate and sway in the gentle breeze ! Ahhhhh spring is near.

The pastel colors inspire me. i have a few new pieces of vintage fabric that'll make their way into bouquets this month. Meanwhile custom orders are always welcome and with the variety of choices and vendors out there I appreciate the brave brides that have thought outside the box and have purchased these little handmade poms from me !

Always Vintage ~ Always Handmade

February 2016

February started without me and I'm a week into it without having written a bit of what's going on in my little slice of etsy.
An ever evolving world of handmade things continues to blow my mind and as my own little vintage fabric poms have found some terrific homes business has been slower than in the past and while I understand the market trends I see such commercial wasteful supplies and DIY kits dominating the handmade idea of simple living.. I'm going to continue and elaborate some ~ As always and forever thank you to the fun brides that have put a leap of internet faith into my idea of what fabrics (especially vintage ) bring to the table of love !!

I'm involved in our towns trashion fashion show this year designing wearable art and sculptures made using nothing but found and recycled materials. My husband works at a paper mill so this should be interesting. In June, I'll add photo's of our runway piece to where I post the poms at the link below .

I'm thinking of making postcards of some of my husband's artwork and adding them to the shop.
A comical style of their own they take on a Crumb like beauty that is painfully funny and at times too true to bare such absurd illustrations but ~ we like it and being San Francisco natives we adopted " beauty is in the eye of the beholder " a long time ago and always look forward to what the future holds in a world where there truly is an art to just about everything.

Happy unique birthday you Leap Year people.

a leap year helps synchronize the calendar year with earth’s orbit around the sun

Always Vintage ~ Always Handmade


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

January 2016

The milky white resin of Frankincense and the reddish color of Myrrh are finding themselves replaced with the sweet smell of raisin carrot morning muffins (a recipe from a friend) the taste of Turmeric in the air and the new year into its second day.


I have some great fabrics to work with this year. I mentioned laces, pastel's and old fashioned trims in Dec. Since then a gift from the fabric goddess's brought a bundle of fabrics where the colors and textures reach out from the sea and into the sky scooping up what a rainbows pallette leaves behind. One is a beautiful Silk blend. It is Japanese with textured dots and painted flowers. Two pieces , one in shades of blue creme and grey the other in red's. The shop's inventory will show one of each by mid month.

Thank you always to the brave brides that see a little something different in the bouquets I make.
The designs come from my own ideas and technique ~ all of the fabrics used are vintage and antique, authentic and true. Custom orders are met with excitement and for me a fun challenge to find colors and textures to match your needs ~

Happy New Year and cheers for a peace filled world with new ideas and innovative solutions !
