I enjoy making things, sewing, crocheting, knitting and have been collecting and decorating my home with antiques and vintage for many years. I like the eclectic and unique look of the different styles and decades mixed together.
I started buying antiques when I was in my early 30's, all kinds of things from pottery to kitchen gadgets to furniture(and refinished when needed, too) and started selling soon after (1990's) in an antique shop for twelve years and have been a seller on ebay since 1998.

My newest venture in my shop is making clothes for the Monster High dolls. My daughter is in her mid 20's, so I hadn't made clothes for Barbie size dolls in quite a while. I had seen the dolls and thought they were cute and they didn't have many clothes in stores for them and I have a 6 year old great-niece that has the MH dolls. So I'm making clothes for the young ones to play with and also for those who may be into customizing the dolls.
If you have any questions about my items or custom Monster High clothing, feel free to convo me.

Thanks for stopping by!
