About

Infusing the old and new with love, humor, irreverence, and LIFE!

Growing up in a big family with little money, I think, played a pivotal role in my "waste not, want not" approach to life. I have fond memories of making stuff out of reclaimed or ordinary items, putting my own spin on them. I love the Earth and all her people and the most important thing I can teach my children is to Love and Be Good, in whatever form that takes.

I love old things, especially "granny" stuff-- vintage linens, tatted lace, embroidery, and dishes (depression glass! fire king! milk glass! oh my!!!), as reflected in my vintage offerings. I buy/find/collect what I like, and suspect you'll like it too.

A nerd at heart, I have a deep love of books, languages, other cultures, and "old things". These easily came together as an obvious "Of course!!! Light switch plates covered in vintage dictionary pages!" a-ha moment. I was hooked. I began with English language dictionaries, quickly expanding into international versions as I came across them. And the rest is history!

I consider myself an artist, yet sometimes am caught off guard when people ask "what kind of art" I make--- "It depends on what I come across, what I find, and how I'm feeling!"

"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web." -- Pablo Picasso

Welcome! Jump on in. I hope I entertained you at least a little.... I love crafting in all its forms and know I found my niche here on etsy. I'll do whatever I can to make you happy and hope to see you again. I'm not so good at cartwheels though; sorry.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I happily accept paypal. I've recently added personal checks and postal money orders as payment options. Please be aware that additional time will be required if you are paying by check or postal money order. If you're willing to chance it, I will also take well concealed cash. Items will be shipped out within 24 hours of receipt of payment. And because I mail your package the day you order it (see details below), I appreciate the same manner of promptness with your payment. So far, all of my buyers have been perfect!!! (But you knew that already, I know....LOL)
Shipping
All shipping costs include all shipping materials (a box if necessary, bubble wrap, padding, etc.)

If you place your order on a weekday, I will mail it that day. If you order on a weekend, I will ship it Monday morning. I don't "sit on" your order for a long time... I send it out right away.

Generally, if the item is not particularly fragile and will withstand normal typical postal handling, it will be sent first class to try and save you a little postage. If you prefer ups or usps priority shipping, no problem-- let me know and I'll determine the new shipping price quote. I often use recycled packaging materials, so let me know if this is a problem. I live in a pet free/ smoke free household, so allergens/scents are not an issue. Don't hold me responsible if one of my kids somehow ends up in your package though. (just kidding; I think). It happens.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for any reason you are unhappy or dissatisfied with ANY part of your business with me, by all means, LET ME KNOW!!! Legend has it I'm a fairly openminded and peaceful person. I'll do whatever I can to make it right.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm always open to suggestions, too. I am MORE than happy to do custom work for you-- don't hesitate to ask! I have lots of positive feedback on custom orders for many buyers here on etsy. If there's something you're itching to have, perhaps I can scratch that itch. Lets talk.

Also, I will ship anywhere in the world, provided there isn't a customs restriction on the item. (Sometimes I work with plant material and/or seeds, and some countries-- Australia for example-- are pretty strict about letting those things in).

Additionally, please let me know if the item you've purchased is a gift for someone! I'd be more than happy to wrap it "instantly giftable". If you include a notation in the 'note to seller', I can ship it directly to the recipient.
