I love my muse and all things vintage- clothes, jewelry, fabric, lace, cars etc.I first met my muse when I was four years old in the middle of a mud puddle, on the day I first discovered mud. We played unsupervised for hours making mud pies, painting ourselves and anything nearby.

I love my muse and all things vintage- clothes, jewelry, fabric, lace, cars etc.I first met my muse when I was four years old in the middle of a mud puddle, on the day I first discovered mud. We played unsupervised for hours making mud pies, painting ourselves and anything nearby.
Lately my muse has been clamoring for attention, and flat-out demanding both a larger audience and more playtime. Unbeknownst to me, one day when I was ignoring her she started playing dress up with some old vintage clothes and jewelry I had been saving for my granddaughter. A few hours later she announced she had joined cahoots with my clothes and that they were leaving in search of new adventures.

Serendipitously (my favorite word, by the way) my granddaughter, Sadie, my all time favorite dress up partner, moved back to town, so here we all are ...The Muse In Me, Me-Ilene Hertzfeld Jones & my granddaughter, Sadie Dakota McFadden (my adorable model).

My muse is like myself. She is rambunctious, adventurous, creative, eccentric and always follows her heart. She loves vintage clothes, antiques and trying new things. She likes to keep me busy - We spent 12 years airbrushing t-shirts at county fairs throughout the state of Kentucky and Tennessee. In the mid 80's we opened a vintage clothing boutique and early 90's a health food store.

Welcome to our newest venture, in which we will be selling vintage clothes, again. We will also be selling jewelry, household décor items and eventually some of our own handmade goodies-crocheted items, refurbished jewelry and other unusual creations.

Thanks for stopping in – We hope you aMUSE yourselves & find something you enjoy!! :}
