I love to make things, and have always been drawn to objects with character, uniqueness and history. When I was in high school, I worked for a jeweler who supported his family by selling his handmade jewels.

I love to make things, and have always been drawn to objects with character, uniqueness and history. When I was in high school, I worked for a jeweler who supported his family by selling his handmade jewels. I was so impressed that this man could make what he loved, and in turn people loved what he made. I hoped that someday I would make something worthy enough that I would be able to earn a living by selling my art. So, I went to Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and majored in painting. I fell in love with ceramics, bought a kiln, and designed and produced ceramics that I sold around the country for over 14 years. Now that I have young children, my focus has shifted to caring for them. After a few years of exclusively being a mommy, I longed for a creative outlet. I've always loved going to estate sales and yard sales, sorting through piles, looking for hidden gems. So, I decided to start this Etsy vintage shop, both as a place to find creative stimulation, and as a place to share the multitude of old things I've collected through the years!

I have a few handmade items listed in this shop, and hope to eventually have the time to make more!

When I'm not busy with my kids and out searching for more lovely old things, I'm busy cooking and gardening. I love organic gardening, and the satisfaction that comes from feeding my family something we spent a few months growing.
