It's exactly what I was looking for to place my lovely perfume couture on. I love the painted detail of the roses on it. This piece is quite beautiful. Thank you.

Sweet little antique figurine of firefighter to add to a decor vignette or your collection of white stoneware.
Just finished the lavender harvest and new sachets will be ready as soon as the buds have dried. Several French decor items are available in the shop now to satisfy your Provence dreams.
A sweet antique cup with many uses - lovely gift for mom or sis!

A Nesting Habit

Opening an Etsy shop was a natural extension of what I have been living. It is another vehicle that supports my habit of finding interesting vintage objects that tell me stories and feather my nest.

As long as I can remember I have found ways to repurpose old and damaged textiles. For many years the recipients of these items were family, friends, and the holiday shoppers at an annual fair in Carmel, California.

I opened my shop featuring a small selection of my handmade items. Soon I expanded the offerings to include antique and vintage items. Not only do I continue to feather my nest, but I take great pleasure in finding unique items to accessorize the homes of others.

No Reserves

Requests for reserves will be denied or ignored. I've been fooled too many times. If you are temporarily short on funds I am happy to discuss layaway options for some higher priced items.

Returns and Restocking Fees

If a return is arranged the returned items may incur a restocking fee of 15% which will be deducted from refundable amount.

Do you combine shipping cost?

Yes - I combine shipping of multiple items to reduce shipping cost. And I always refund the savings to you!

When will my item ship?

Purchases ship within one business day. I will contact you immediately if special packaging requires a delay. Hasn't happened yet.
