Recreating a Forgotten Past

It's no secret, I love creating unique pieces with a feel and look of being very old. Junk Journaling quickly became my favorite due to all the possibilities of what can be created. Now I am expanding upon that to bring you a wider variety of treasures.

Nothing makes me happier than that moment when someone says "where did you find this!" as they discover one of my own handmade pieces in my home. Now I am able to bring these to you here in my shop. Each item will blend in with your current treasures from the past, rather than standing out like so many do. Taking the time to age each piece is a passion that will never grow old for me.

So whether you are looking for junk journals, loaded pockets and unique ephemera pieces. Or you are looking for seasonal and holiday ornaments, sewing "needfuls" or simple every day items, there will be many things to choose from. It is my hope you will visit often, discovering unique pieces to add into your collections or gift to your family and friends.

Join me as I continue Recreating a Forgotten Past!

    Creating pieces that look like they are centuries old is a passion like no other. Something that gives me great satisfaction in creating, knowing it will fit in with your true antiques although it is brand new!

Frequently asked questions

Do You Offer Custom orders?

We know you are always looking for that special piece for your junk journals. Feel free to contact us with your request.

Are all items handmade by you?

Glad you asked! Yes, all of the Handcrafted items in the shop have been handmade by me. Each is carefully created to look decades if not centuries old. Nothing is ever rushed in order to achieve the exact look and feel we all love and have been searching for.

You will discover vintage, as well as antique items in the shop as well. These obviously have not been handmade by us. If an item is vintage or antique, it is described as such in the product description.

OOAK Items, what are they and can I order more than one?

OOAK means "One Of A Kind". This means just that, it is truly the only one. Due to the nature of the processes used in creating each of our unique pieces, they cannot be reproduced to create another one just like it.

If you see something in particular you wish to have more than one of, we can do our best to create another OOAK piece similar in nature. Each one will have its own characteristics and some of the artwork or ephemera pieces will be different. If you are interested, simply contact us with your request.
