Cocktail culture, retro-fashion and cozy home both vintage and upcycled
I have long been a collector of vintage things, especially from the 1930s-1950s. As a child I had many collections including rocks, Barbie clothes, record albums, swizzle sticks, and miniature dogs. As I got older it turned into vintage clothing, beaded handbags, rhinestone jewelry and more record albums.
I love the challenge of the hunt---in my case, estate sales and thrift shops. Finding something old and unique at a good price is a thrill like nothing else--and no blood is spilled.
It doesn't bother me if things are shabby or worn- although I may add a little embellishing to make them sparkle again. I love the history behind old objects. It's mysterious.
I have been a mural painter, art teacher, art literacy curriculum writer and more, but now, re-making and upcycling ruined old things into something new and curating vintage collections are what I like to do the most. Sometimes.....I even share! Visit my other Etsy shop velvetonthepage [!at] etsy.com full of vintage souvenirs, paper goods and goodies.
