On Etsy since 2014

Gifts and home décor that are both aesthetically pleasing and humorous.

Alison Flaherty and Mike Pretty are based in Rochester, NY and have been friends for over a decade. In 2014 we decided to turn our passion for pop culture, snark, needlework and paper crafting into a business. Alison, who enjoys all things literary, sports and Lee Pace, creates the cross stitch pieces. Mike is a total plant addict, who appreciates all things home décor and tequila related. He devises all of the one of a kind paper craft pieces. We aim to make all of our designs aesthetically pleasing and humorous.
In 2020 we expanded our shop to include high quality vinyl stickers, magnets, coasters, and pins all based off our cross stitch and paper craft designs.
If you enjoy a mix of beauty and irreverence in your home décor and gifts we have the perfect shop for you!
