About

New Life for Forgotten Toys

My name is Melissa and I live in sunny Holiday, FL on the Gulf of Mexico. I'm a recent transplant from the suburbs of Baltimore and relocated with my feline companions, a very chubby Tuxedo named 35 and a tiny little Tabby, Lizzie Lou Who.

Since I was a small child, I've always loved to "make things" and explore and collect, so it's no surprise the my educational background is in art.

My grandmothers were two very different women and I had the great fortune of being able to spend lots of time with them both growing up. Both of their influences can be seen in my work.

On the one hand, my "Mama" taught me to sew and rummage around garages, thrift stores, attics and basements, looking for "the good stuff." She and my grandfather had a summer home on the Chesapeake Bay near Calvert Cliffs, where we would spend long days digging for fossils and combing the beach for any treasures the waves had washed up and deposited.

My "Dee Dee" on the other hand, took me for long walks in the woods and taught me to love and admire nature, she took me to the movies, where I developed my love for film, she loved to collect photographs and installed in me a love for photography and capturing and preserving images of things that I love.

Now I spend my winter weekends in thrift stores and antique shops looking for what I consider "the good stuff." I salvage what I can to turn into something beautiful and new.

Summers are spent in secret spots searching for sea glass or looking through the forest for bottle dumps or any other discarded items from yesterday that I can renew and make useful again.

In my shop you'll find items made from these excursions. Things that I've picked up, felt the weight of, the texture, the smell, it's imperfections. Discarded items that deserve a new life and items reminiscent of the things I love.
