About

Home and Family are very important to me.... I love vintage things and I think this comes in part from spending time early on with my Grandmother. She kept a tidy home filled with vintage treasures. As a young wife and mother during the depression, she was also frugal and wasted nothing - I remember jars filled with buttons, snaps and zippers she had removed from exhausted clothing. Use and re-use was her way of life and she certainly never threw anything away simply because it was old!

I am lucky enough to share some of these traits and have great value for the trinkets and treasures of yesterday. I enjoy finding something old and discarded and breathing new life and purpose into it. Now I have my own warm family home and it is filled with items like those you'll find in my shop. I enjoy collecting items from different eras and styles to create my own eclectic mix…
