everything has a story

I've always had an eye towards vintage and weathered items that appear to have a story to tell. I like quirky bits, things that were clearly meant to make someone chuckle.

As a girl I often played with a tin full of buttons my Grandmother had collected over time. I was always enthralled with the shapes and colors, imaging the clothes they originally belonged to. Being the fortunate single grandchild I have inherited many random items collected over my grandparents' lifetime and collect others on my own when I stumble across them. I love to find that one fun item at the estate sale or thrift shop. I like items that have had a life before they reached me.

I hope you enjoy my findings and re-imagined art. It's enjoyable to make and I hope it brings a smile to your face. I often try to make my collages a jumping-off point for the start of a story... my wish is that they spark your imagination.

cheers! and thanks for stopping by.
