Tina Cole's Profile

About

My shop is named for my late Alaskan Malamute, Snowfeather. I know we'll see each other again one day at the Rainbow Bridge, but, until then, I will honor her with the heart, and soul and love I put into all my creations. My mother, Carol, contributes her sewing talent to Snowfeather's Emporium and my daughter, Casey, knitting. As with most mothers and daughters, we are alike and we are different. You'll see reflections of this in our shop.

TINA - A little about me, personally, I am a free-spirited gypsy country girl who my sister calls a flower child. I am proud of my heritage from the Southern United States, but, there is a whole lot more to me than just being a Southern Belle. I have a many-layered personality that is true to my birth sign of Pisces - "mysterious and creative, Pisces love to fantasize and turn dreams into reality ~ ruled by Neptune, adventure and…

TINA - A little about me, personally, I am a free-spirited gypsy country girl who my sister calls a flower child. I am proud of my heritage from the Southern United States, but, there is a whole lot more to me than just being a Southern Belle. I have a many-layered personality that is true to my birth sign of Pisces - "mysterious and creative, Pisces love to fantasize and turn dreams into reality ~ ruled by Neptune, adventure and mystery are an instant turn-on. Anything offbeat, mystic, and remote is bound to catch the attention of a Pisces." I feel a deep affinity to Scotland though I've never set foot on Scottish soil. I know I've lived there in a past life. I am 1/4 Cherokee Indian and the Native American blood sings in my veins. I always look at the world "through rose colored glasses" - with an open mind and an even more open heart. Time periods I love are include ancient, Medieval, Victorian, Edwardian, 1960's-70's, Steampunk, and Goth.

I am a total book worm. If I'm not crafting, I am most likely reading with my two dogs at my side. I love history, medicine (I'm a retired RN), oddities, nature, being creative, animals, and all kinds of music. I believe we are all just visitors to this time and place. We are just passing through - to observe, to learn, to grow, to love - before returning home (Aboriginal Proverb) Also, I am fascinated by Celts, Vikings, and pirates. I have one daughter who is the love of my life. Since she is grown and off to do life, so I have two fur-angels who are my children at present. Phinneous, a pug/dachshund mix who is as black as midnight and Chico, a Chihuahua.

Infusing life with beauty has always been one of my strongest callings. Creating makes my soul smile. Hope you find something in Snowfeather's Emporium that will make you smile and maybe even want to have it for your very own.

Peace and Bright Blessings ~
Tina


CAROL - Things I love are anything Victorian - houses, clothing, jewelry, décor. I am an antique fanatic with a love for all periods. I enjoy flowers and gardening and have a deep love for animals.

I love anything that is chocolate. I am a true lady of the south. I grew up in North Carolina, have lived here my whole life, and with that being said, I hardly need to tell you, I adore Scarlett O'Hara, Rhett Butler, and Gone with the Wind - my favorite movie of all time! Oh, and needless to say, Elvis is "The King" and always will be! Not to say that I'm not up-to-date on current media. I think the Twilight Series (books and movies) are just wonderful and Edward is a gentleman after my own heart. My husband drove race cars in his younger years and we love to watch NASCAR. Our family has "the need for speed". We love to "go fast"! lol! I'm retired and enjoy my time at home with my family. My two Pomeranians are my babies, since my own two children are grown and gone. I have Ozzie who is strawberry blonde and B.J. who is black. They are little old men. Both are 14 years old and set in their ways.

I love making things from fabric be it OOAK pillows, eyeglass cases, tote bags, dolls, and a multitude of other things. I use any old textiles I can find - silk scarves, handkerchiefs, lace, old clothing pieces, etc. I have been sewing for 55 years or more. I love to decorate my creations using old jewelry, buttons, lace, appliques, and other found objects.

I hope you will look through Snowfeather's Emporium and maybe decide to get a gift for a loved one or for yourself!

Be Blessed ~
Carol
