"It was more than discovering something that I loved to do; it was discovering someone I had always been." ~ Natalie ;)

I am a 30-year-old multi-tasking, artistic, musical, entrepreneurial wife & mother of one who loves the outdoors, Pomeranians, animals, fitness, nutrition, & making life better in general by surrounding myself with beautiful people & things!

Since my store is new, I have only been posting my vintage treasures so far, but I also make lots of handmade & refinished products (mostly home decor). I have a two-year-old son & right now before I can start posting the handmade things, I need to finish getting everything set up & organized so that I can begin producing! In other words, please stop back often & 'favorite' my shop so that you can see if there's anything else that pops up you could use for yourself or as gifts.

So why a Magi? Well, it's kind of an inside joke... For the first 9 months of my life when my mom was pregnant with me, my name was Kylie Ann; that is, until I decided to be born on Christmas day in 1981. It was then that my name became Natalie (which means Christmas) Nicole (after St. Nicholas). My senior year of high school, my mom was going through menopause & was taking a ride on the crazy train (I know I should watch what I say because whatever happens to your mother is generally what happens to you, too! My poor husband!). When the yearbook staff sent out the pages that parents can buy in the back of the yearbook to congratulate graduating seniors, my mom made the page from my sisters. I'll scan it into this post later, but it said:
To our sister, Natalie: You are our Holy Gift of Magi. Phenomenal, to say the least!

Everyone had a good laugh & no one knew what it meant...
The Magi were the Wise Men who came to the manger bearing gifts for the newborn King, Jesus. So apparently, I was a gift from the Wise Men. Go figure... Now I am a creative person who loves rescuing vintage & creating handmade treasures! I can look at a worthless piece of ANYthing & see countless possibilities that the average person can not. SO, I am the Vintage Magi; or the Wise-(Wo)Man of Vintage! Get it?

Feel free to stop by & follow my blog, 'The Vintage Magi: A Repuposed Life,' at TheVintageMagi.blogspot.com. Because I just started making more time for this aspect of my life, I'm in the beginning stages of building up the blog with my projects. There could be 90 more posts, but again I do what time allows!
