I Must Have Aaltered Vision

I hope my Aawesome Aardvark shoppers notice the wide variety of things living in AlteredAardvark. It is a sign of either my infinite interests or my wackadoodle nature.

AlteredAardvark arrived when the Upcycled/Recycled section of my TangoPony vintage shop decided to run away from home. "Upcycled/Recycled" was a pretty boring shop name, so I went aawesome aanimal hunting. Guess what's at the top of the list?

Aardvark means "earth pig" but is also called "ant bear". It's already a thing that is something else. Aar-aar-aar!

I really can't help myself. Whenever I encounter an old, forgotten something, I hallucinate. I see that the old, forgotten something can become something else. I don't start out deciding to make something, the 'thing' always dictates what it is going to be.

I am inspired by the list of the 43 uses for WD-40 and my father, who taught me that creativity is not optional.

    I am nine dog years old. In an earlier life I taught school, trained horses, drove an 18-wheeler cross country and taught ballroom dancing. Now I am a flamenco dancer, violinist and horse nut. Why grow up? Who says you have to decide what to be?

Welcome to Altered Aardvark!

I love to make things into other things. Aardvark means "earth pig" and is also called "ant bear". It's already a thing that is something else. Aar-aar-aar!

I seek out the discarded, abandoned and given away. As soon as I see it, I can see what it can be. I think everything deserves a second chance.

If you still have questions after reading Altered Aardvark Policies, it will be my pleasure to answer them.

Also please visit my TangoPony shop chock full of vintage things. http://www.tangopony.etsy.com
