About

Vintage Book Page Garlands, Driftwood Sailboats with Antique Textile Sails, and other Nice Things!

Once upon a time I was given over one hundred vintage book club books that were literally destined for the landfill. I turned them into something beautiful. Over time and thousands of rosettes later I have developed my own unique style in the formation of these paper flowers. I spend several hours in the creation of each of my garlands. They have evolved tremendously since their humble beginnings, and have spoken for themselves. That is how I started out with my Esty shop.

Then came the driftwood sailboats. As a beachcomber I can not come away from the beach empty handed. So when I had collected too much for one person, I began making my driftwood sailboats, lace graced seashells, and other beach decor items for others to enjoy. Using the prettiest antique and vintage laces, and gorgeous pieces of driftwood makes for the most beautiful natural decorations. The video clip was taken while setting up tables in Antiparos, Greece where the bride and groom invited me to attend their wedding where 500 of my sailboats were given as favors to the guests.

I am truly honored to say that my sailboats, garlands, book bundles and driftwood vases have all been individually featured in GreenCraft, and Somerset Home magazines by the Stampington & Co publications.

Daily, people visit this Etsy store where they either purchase my handmade items, add them to their favorites, or find inspiration for their blog articles worldwide. I hope you are one of them!

Hello Dear Customer!

Every handmade item is made by me. I enjoy what I do as well as the warm reactions I receive from my clients. There will be variations in anything handmade. Using vintage textiles and papers in itself can create inconsistent items. However, I am an "imperfect perfectionist" which helps me take pride in my work and assures you of a beautiful item we can both be proud of.

I am very particular about smells. I will not purchase mildewed books or textiles to be used in my creations. I have lived on the coast, and trust me, mildew is not a good smell!
I do live in a dry climate, so my vintage items do not carry moldy odors. I never use molded books or fabrics. Some books I sell or create with may have an aged smell, but not that moldy smell. Also, my household and workshop are both cigarette and pet free.

Thank you for visiting my shop and reading my policies. It is my hope you find an irreplaceable and ageless item here at Love Embellished. You are always more than welcome to contact me with questions, ideas or concerns.

May all your days be Embellished with Love!

Shipping
Orders within the USA - I try to be as economical as possible in my shipping. On small items I will send first class whenever possible.

I carefully pack all my items. Each package I ship has tracking. Damage of items due to Post Office neglect, or lost mail I can not be responsible for. In my years of online selling, I have only had a couple package fiasco's with the U.S Post Office, which eventually worked out. Insurance is your option. Ask to insure it and I will give you the total.

I do ship international. I have shipped to Australia, Europe, Italy, Canada, Greece and Japan in the past with no problems. Convo me with your postal code and I can get the price quote for you. Please do not ask me to edit the customs form to show your purchases as gifts. I am obligated to obey the law which prohibits me from falsifying information on international shipments. Thank you for understanding!

Love Embellished is not responsible for any duty, customs and or VAT fees that may be charged to you. Unless you specifically pay to have your shipment insured, I cannot be responsible for lost shipments, internationally or nationally. I would be happy to give you a quote for shipping insurance, just contact me prior to making your purchase.

Please remember, International and Media Mail shipping takes longer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because I am a one woman handmade small business and not a corporate store, I can only provide refunds when there is clear evidence that an item you purchased is not as described or is defective.

Each exchange or refund is on a case to case basis. I endeavor to send off only the highest quality I am able to create. However should something go awry, please contact me before leaving feedback so that I am aware of your situation. It is always my desire that your purchase is worthy of a five star review, and I will work with you to be sure it is so.

I must ask that you contact me within seven days of proof of delivery to request a refund or an exchange. In certain cases the returned item to LoveEmbellished will be the customers responsibility. Refunds can take up to two weeks after a mutual agreement has been determined.
