About

Hello!
I am a stay-at-home-mom to 2 beautiful little girls ( and another baby girl on the way!) a 9 yr old, Marlee, a 2 1/2 year old, Georgia, and a wife of 14 years to my best friend, Hatler, who is a Chief Warrant Officer in the US Navy. We also belong to a Persian kitty, a Cocker Spaniel and a sweet little French Bulldog! I am a native Californian - born in the Bay Area, and raised in the Sierra mountains of Northern Cali. My years as a Graphic Designer in the US Air Force has led me to many great opportunities and projects, but my favorite job of all is just being a mom! My love of all things vintage, colorful, and kitschy led me to create special, whimsical barrettes for my own little "goldilocks." I was tired of always seeing mass-produced, uninspired barrettes for little girls, so I decided to strike out on my own and create something special and original!

My love of all things vintage, colorful, and kitschy led me to create special, whimsical barrettes for my own little "goldilocks." I was tired of always seeing mass-produced, uninspired barrettes for little girls, so I decided to strike out on my own and create something special and original! After creating about 60 barrettes for my own little girl and getting raves wherever we went, I decided it was time to share! All my barrettes are meticulously crafted with an artistic flair and I wouldn't sell anything that I wouldn't put in my own little girl's hair. You can be assured that you are getting something special, unique, and in most cases, one-of-a-kind! My designs and ideas are COMPLETELY MY OWN (and copyrighted and registered), and are hand-made solely by me!
My loves and inspirations are:
*Retro and vintage appliances,
material, trims, buttons, clothing - really ANYTHING from the 50's!
*1940's-50's advertising
*highly saturated, kitschy color combinations
*Cakes, ice cream colors and sweets
*crochet, tulle, chenille
*vintage embroidery and toddler clothing
*vintage pin-up girls
