Note from shop owner Updated December 3, 2020: I have made a decision to take an extended leave of absence; the shop will remain closed through the end of the year so I can regroup and spend some much needed time with family while we try to make the best of a very challenging holiday season.

Our family recently suffered the unexpected loss of of my husband's mom (my kids' grandma, my very dear mother-in-law and friend) and we really need the space and time to grieve and focus on each other.

I cannot express enough how much it means to us, those who have reached out to offer their condolences and prayers for our family.

If you would like to be notified when my shop reopens in January, please click the link below. Thank you so very much for your support of my shop, and I wish everyone a happy and HEALTHY holiday season.

Be well,
Mandy

Handmade Hair Accessories for Newborn to Adult and Personalized Gifts

I am the wife of a Sheriff's Detective and work-at-home mom of three (ages 4 to 23).

I am inspired by so many things, which keeps my creative brain in high gear most of the time. I am a bit of a foodie and growing up I really wanted to become a pastry chef. I love antiques and vintage, especially farmhouse style (old quilts, sewing notions, baking and kitchen tools). They have a story and often have a place in some of our strongest memories.

My grandma always inspired me; her home, her cooking, her creativity and style. She hosted tea parties for the two of us, always poured into a beautiful teacup. She had a home full of farmhouse antiques and a collection of teapots and teacups that inspired me to begin my own collection that I will one day pass along to my girls. My grandma taught me to sew on an antique sewing machine, how to trace and cut patterns and sew pleats and darts.

My family is full of crafty, talented ladies. My mom inspired me to work with my hands and just because we're "girls" there's nothing wrong with a little dirt. My parents owned a commercial construction business and growing up that is where I spent my summers, on a job site getting dirty and working very hard. We traveled all over the US, building stores in shopping malls. Growing up around construction made me more curious of how things work and how they are put together. When I was young I would sometimes break things just so I could put them back together, which got me in some trouble from time to time.

When I graduated high school, my parents sold our home and bought a sailboat, where I lived and visited during the summers. They lived aboard their boat cruising the Bahamas, and then later settled on the island of Guanaja, off the coast of Honduras in the Bay Islands. Needless to say, we lived a very interesting life. I prefer the feeling of being settled and planting some roots after moving and traveling so much growing up. I've spent the past 25 years living in Southwest Florida with my family.

These days, my curiosity leads me to be more creative and I really enjoy the process of "figuring it out" and learning new skills. I am blessed to pass along that curiosity and passion for creativity to my three kids. My oldest is an incredibly talented artist and aspiring pastry chef, my younger daughter loves to draw and design clothes for her dolls. Right now, our little boy, age four, is obsessed with dinosaurs and is mommy's little helper. He will likely grow up a helper, just like his daddy. We are so proud of him.

Everything in my shop is handmade from start to finish by me and I pay close attention to the little details to ensure my products are constructed of safe and high quality materials, All of the felt items you find in my shop are embroidered, hand cut or die-cut by me. I am proud to be a crafter, home chef, DIY-er, and self-proclaimed reno gal, and I hope you enjoy my shop as much as I enjoy creating the items in it!
