About

Once I over came my silly fears of being ridiculous or comical, my conservative classical meticulously crafted designs no longer fully absorbed me.

I became one of those underground dressmakers who quietly reshaped the who's who in the neighborhood for decades.
I incubated my joy in silence because I new I was good.

Dressing under a veil of secrecy, the ones who keep you hidden from their best friends...
Studied every possible technique from the masters of Couture...
Paris, Italy, no better gauge could have prepared me for what happened in my own backyard...(Some day in my memoirs)

I craft because I have to...I have no heirs to teach or pass on my gifts. Therefore, in this collection of pure indulgent accessories my Mother aptly named "Tee-Pee-Toes" I break the barriers of conservative to give whimsy, humor, and a little shock value to the proverbial perfect accessory. (Trust me it is not a man or dog)...

That daring little hat, the curious purse, the belt that pulls the outfit together. The boots and shoes that complete our look speaks volumes about our style, who we are, who we are not. Something about us is unexplainable and intriguing...Something that every one wants and wonders how and where to get some...

My accessories are wearable, displayable heirlooms to enjoy and to pass on...
They are pure indulgent labor-intensive works of Folk Art. Items that only get better with time and wear.

Keep an eye open for pieces from my new fall line of clothing and more accessories...no rules, no barriers...just fun!
