We are a mother daughter team working out of Southern California. Our Etsy store started as a way to fund raise for Zoe's 8th grade trip to Costa Rica. While in Central America her group volunteered in the city of Turrialba. They worked in a school with elementary students for much of the time, and then spent the rest of the time sight seeing in the rain forest.

The amount of money that needed to be raised was extremely daunting, it almost seemed impossible for a single artist mom and a 13 year old, but with a lot of hard work, support from the Etsy community, and a good number of craft fairs we made it happen. Thanks!

We decided to keep running the shop because it was a lot of fun. All of the proceeds now go toward a college fund for Zoe.

Hello, welcome to my shop.

I like the challenge of working with recycled, upcycled and found objects, and seeing things for something beyond their 'normal' use. Someone once described my work as a "name that tune" of art, the longer you look, the more transformed everyday items you will recognize. I'm always on the lookout for different and interesting ideas and materials.

I do my best to provide attractive, innovative and inexpensive items for gifting, or your personal collection. Your feedback is always welcomed. Thanks for stopping by.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I hope you are 100% satisfied, but if you are not, please convo me so we can work it out. If an item is damaged during shipping please let me know immediately upon it's arrival so we can figure out a reasonable replacement. Most of the items are made of recycled or found objects, and so are one of a kind, exchanges, if you need one will have to be worked out on a case by case basis.
All payments should be made via Paypal, all taxes are included in the price of the item.
I ship everything USPS. If you want your item insured please convo or email me as soon as as you place the order. I always get delivery confirmation on the things I send out. All items are shipped within 72 hours after payment has cleared, unless specified otherwise. I use recycled, but clean and presentable shipping materials.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of my items are made of recycled materials, and so, some have unique variations specific to them. I go to great effort to represent the item in every aspect through my photos and description, even the wear it may have experienced in it's former life. If you would like any additional info on the pieces, I'll be happy to provide whatever I can.
