About

I have designed and created all kinds of things for years. I have sold my items in stores and boutiques on and off since the 80's. So many people ask if I sell on Etsy so I thought I'd give it a try.

I would say that most of all I love working with color and texture. So whatever I am working on in whatever media I always think color first, then design and texture. I work in all kinds of media so you will find an assortment of accessories all created by me.

I Knit, Crochet, Felt, Sew, Embroider, Needlepoint, X Stitch, Bead, Make Jewelry, Needle Felt, Needle Punch, Paint on Fabric, Paint on anything I can, I would like to say I weave but not yet! I always have something going.

For the past 3 years I have been focusing on making Christmas Stockings and HeadBands out of old wool sweaters and…

For the past 3 years I have been focusing on making Christmas Stockings and HeadBands out of old wool sweaters and jackets. I spend hours looking for the sweaters and jackets. Then I felt them and cut them up and make my item. My trademark is on each stocking, I put something old on it. Which I also spend hours searching for. It may be an old antique stick pin or a piece of jewelry, an old key, lock, button, lace whatever I can incorporate into my design. On the headbands I use Danforth Pewter Buttons that are made here in VT. I also use another artist from NH that does Pewter buttons .I love making the Christmas stockings with a feel for old time charm. These can become a family heirloom

I hope you enjoy looking at all the things I do and please feel free to mark my page because I will be adding new items all the time. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Update March 18, 2014

I will be putting away some of my Xmas stockings till late summer, so if you are looking for one or want one made before then, feel free to contact me. I will leave a few on the site but more are available. My purses will continue as usual.

Since I frequent Antique and Vintage Shops and go to Estate Sales often I have decided to branch out a bit and add vintage and antique items. I love old things and always have so thought I'd give it a try. Some I will sell as is and some I may revamp. Don't hesitate to contact me if you are looking for something special. I will do my best to help. Always, feel free to leave feedback on my shop and my items..
So enjoy the things I have listed and I hope you have a great day.

Summer 2016
I can't believe I haven't written since 2014. My favorite word TIME, there it is again. It just fly's by . Well for the past year or so I have been busy going to auctions all year long, usually every weekend and keep my inventory well stocked on my Etsy site. I have had so much fun shopping and learning more each time I buy something. I have always liked antiques and old things so it has been much fun learning more and more.
I still continue to make my old fashioned Christmas stockings, which I love doing and still sell to some stores and here on Etsy. I said I was going to do craft shows but just don't seem to find the time.
Life is good , although I wish I was 20 years younger and could go all day long doing this . I love the search, the find and then passing the good fortune on!
Be well and stop by often.
