I have been creating and sewing for the past 30 yrs. and finally I am so ready to bring my goods to the table. Each piece is OOAK and handcrafted with great tender love, care, and time. I create my STUFF as how I remembered antique textile items being when I was a youngster. So the finished product comes across to the viewer as playful and whimsical.

My purses/bags have been duped "Journey Bags" as they certainly have been on one...hmmm..just like us. To be able to give them another journey and to be apart of someone elses is so much fun for me. I describe my work as sometimes Steampunk/Couture Chic, Urban CountryChic, and Whatever Chic;).
Earlier on in my life I did take a course in Interior Design and Decorating at New York School of Interior Design. The knowledge that I recieved from that course such as the history of textiles, art, and architecture has been extremely helpful.
Enough about me already!! Please enjoy my shop and if you have any questions about anything, pleases convo me and I'll get right back to you. Customer Service is my middle name...okay fine it should be! :)
