About

Join me in my treasure hunt...

Hello. I'm Kristi. I am interested in all things artsy, girly, and pretty. I caught the crafting bug from my grandmother at an early age, selling beaded key chains and jewelry alongside my grandmother's acrylic paintings at art shows as a child. From there, I dabbled in cross-stitching, quilting, and scrap booking among other things, but machine embroidery and jewelry making have held my attention the most. My crafts are mainly just a pastime and for my personal use, but I recently left my job of ten years to stay home with my children for a while. I started this Etsy shop in order to share my love for pretty, shiny, girly things with others while making a little money, too.

My husband and I recently bought a farmhouse that was built in the 1950s. The house was fully furnished and came with all of the original owners' belongings from decades ago. I have run across some fantastic finds, from vintage hats, costume jewelry, and Chanel No. 5 bottles to silver serving trays, crystal trinkets, and a trove of mysterious old skeleton keys. Many of these finds are still brimming with charm, and I will be dusting them off and listing them as-is. Others, I will be renewing, restoring, or up cycling in order to make them beautiful and useful again. Some of the boxes still remain unopened. Please join me in my journey of uncovering these beautiful treasures.
