I started with a dream

I always dreamed of owning my own shop. I held onto that dream and when I found etsy in 2009, I made my dream a reality.

I live in Canada but grew up in Wales and at a very young age, I loved vintage, old things, junk my mother called it - it wasn't junk, it sure was treasure.
I craft many of my one of a kind pieces out of that 'junk' as my mother would say. My garlands are mainly vintage fabrics, I use old photographs in my art, and my house - you've guessed it, it's all upcycled ;junk'.
You know how the saying goes, one mans junk is another mans treasure, so my house is full of treasures ♥

- I paint, sew and do art. My husband is the hunter/gatherer pick up and drop off man makes the jewelry, although I paint it.
(OK so where would I be without my husband)!!

Thanks so much for stopping by..

    Hi I'm Ember and I love to paint and sew. My avatar is our dear cat Pagan who we lost in October 2015 at the age of 6 1/2 - it was pretty tragic. ♥ I will miss him forever. He was the most gorgeous blue cat.
