funny story about this. I accidently had it sent to my daughter's house in Oregon. I'm in Ca. so I haven't seen it yet!! I'm told it is exactly as pictured; but don't worry I'm going up this summer. You still get 5 stars-- it was my stupid mistake. PJ

I'm sorry I'm so late in telling your little ephemera lot has been wonderful. My favorite has been the cherub that is now on a vintage Xmas wreath that is all done in vintage, pastel decorations-he fits in perfectly, PJ

About

Art Keeps Me Sane...........

I started creating at a young age when my grandma would let me use all the wonderful goodies in her sewing box. I would glue, sew, bead........you name it, not knowing that I would later call what I was doing Assemblage Art. I love all forms of art, making and enjoying what others have created. over the years I have always created , even when I worked other jobs to help support my family. Art was not just extra income, it was also my way to stay grounded. Art always made me feel peaceful inside.... I loved to collect miniature and other vintage/atique items. I started using some of the items I found in my art. It became as fun for me to find the items I collected as it was using them. my vintage 'treasures' and finds. I loved going on 'treasure hunts'. I often said that someday if I could do my 'dream' business , I would open a shop where I could sell my art work and vintage/antique items. little did I know that years down the road following a very bad accident and several surgeries, I would find myself unable to work outside my home any longer. my children grown and moving out, allowed me to have a much bigger art room and what I called my 'sanity' room. with all the time on my hands I found the art world of the internet....and soon etsy... and here I am. I am able to do exactly what I had always wanted to do, within the confines of my home and help of my family. I can work at my own speed which is important for me because of my limitations. I still feel connected to the world yet without huge demands like I felt when I used to do art and craft shows. I really enjoy the friends and freedoms I have embraced here! :0)

Payment
I would like all payment to be made within 5 business days of the purchase. If you are mailing a personal check or money order, you need to send me a message letting me know, so that I will not expect an electronic payment, and I can keep an eye out for the payment in the mail. Once the payment is received, I will mail the item(s) as soon as the personal check clears at my bank.
Shipping
I try very hard to ship all of my orders within 3 business days of payment clearing. I take a lot of care to wrap my items and package them well , so they arrive safe and sound to you. I do not automatically add insurance, that must be requested before payment is made, by a message and then I will make the adjustments. If you make a very large order and I can combine the shipping even more than the cost of shipping listed, I will be happy to do so. So do not hesitate to send me a message and ask if there could be a further savings than what was listed in the payment. if there is a way for me to combine shipping further, I will be happy too,and will do an electronic refund if you payed by paypal or credit card. if you are mailing your payment, just ask me about a better shipping cost, before you send payment and I will get back to you and let you know if there is a new balance. I often can combine even more, but sometimes can not, especially with the craft items that are bulky and or heavy. I use flat rate in those cases and I never know ahead of time if I can fit more into the box or not, but will be more than willing to if I can.
Refunds and Exchanges
1. I will take a return if the buyer requests insurance and an item is damaged in the mailing process. I do not add the insurance automatically, so please request it before payment, so I can adjust the amount due. any damage during shipment is not something that I will do a return for if you have not asked for insurance. I will also be willing to do a refund, minus shipping cost if there is something wrong with the item that I did not state in the description within reason. If it is not what you expected , I will be happy to give you another item after you ship the returned item and reason why to me. I will try my best to always make you the customer happy and returning in the future.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always up to suggestions or special orders. if you have some idea for a project, please feel free to send a message with your ideas. I will get back to you with an answer and or plan. if you want to order more than one of an item and would like a discount, I will be happy to discuss that also. Every art order may have different costs , plans, time constraints etc. so feel free to contact me and we will see what we can come up with.
