Announcement   I'm having a wonderful time finding, dusting off interesting items I've come across, and offering the to you ... and will continue doing so as long as you want them.

I'm adding a new category to my vintage shop. I've taken photographs of some really cool vintage items and thought folks might be interested in purchasing these photographs. They can be matted and framed, affixed to cardstock for your personal correspondence, given as gifts, what have you. I'll only start with a few, let me know what you think, si'l vous plait! Just to clear any ambiguity, these are NOT vintage photographs, but ARE contemporary photographs of vintage items.

Oh, and I have vintage items for purchase with Verve Vintage Home Furnishings on Lake Street in Medical Lake, WA while I'm out on the road. If you're in the Spokane, WA area, stop into Rhonda's delightful shop and tell her Kay sent you!

About

Sharing Elements to Spur Creativity

After decades of acquiring beads, stones, jewelry making findings, and what not, it is time to divest and share this wealth with other creative people.

After a sale is made, I thoroughly enjoy seeing what the buyer has chosen to create with the elements they've purchased from me. Many of the elements I acquired for specific projects, so it is fun to see what others do with the same beads or stones.

I have a number of vintage beads, so it seemed a natural tangent to offer vintage decorative items through my shop.

Growing up in the Air Force, my family traveled to many different places. As an adult I continued to enjoy traveling. I particularly love Japanese folk art.

I have no idea whatsoever, where this road is going to lead me, but I am having so much fun getting to know members of the Etsy family, whether other vendors or buyers.

What a great experience!

    I identify with the Magpie; my eye is captured by bright and shiny, I pick it up and take it back to my nest. Over the years I've gathered many things. Then I reached a point where I wanted to share with others. Thus began West As the Crow Flies.

I'm delighted you've stopped in to look about and see what there is to see. I hope you find something you can't live without, but I appreciate your visit even if you leave empty-handed.

I value curiosity and the hunt for something a little (or a lot) different. Sometimes the hunt is for something familiar, which brings to mind warm, comforting memories.
