a bit of yarn, a lot of felt, and of course, GLITTER!

I originally started The Baker's Daughter after being discouraged with the lack of original, handmade items during the holidays. Dare I say it - there were too many "cookie cutter" decorations! So I started collecting little vintage figurines that had a little chip here or a small crack there, and added my own little touches to give them new life.

A few years ago, I decided to try my hand at making a yarn wreath for my Mom's birthday. I taught myself how to make felt flowers, and the result was a lovely green yarn wreath, full of pastel felt flowers and topped with a cheery ladybug. She loved it, and I decided to make a few more to sell. And the rest, as they say, is history!

I love to hunt for special, unique vintage items to incorporate into my pieces, whether it's an heirloom table decoration or a cheery wreath for the holidays. Because of this, many of my items are one of a kind or very limited in supply. Once in a while, I'm lucky enough to create a design that can be done over and over again - but each one is lovingly created by me, by hand, so no two will ever be exactly alike.

Thanks for letting me show you a little bit of my world - most of all, I hope I made you smile!
