About

Lover of anything discarded and unwanted. Shabby chippy, flea market finds as well as kitschy 40's 50s 60's decor.

All of my Snowmen are made from a fabric mache' and inspired from Christmas pasts. My passion for "foraging" flea markets, thrift stores, auctions, garage sales and yes, even dumpsters has allowed for the vintage Christmas embellishments. I love finding new uses for off the wall items.
I hope to someday create with my enormous old fabric collection. Too many ideas with little time for creation.
Please contact me with suggestions and critique!

Creating folk art is only second to loving and spending time with all my kids, human, furry and feathered.
