About

It all began with a shabby shawl.....

I've always been a lace-lover, linen-rescuer, wore lace curtains on my head and pretended they were veils and I was a princess. I've had piles of doilies, tablecloths and lace trims in every corner of my house forever.

But it wasn't until I took two shabby, tattered doilies and, on a whim, sewed them together to form a sort of poncho that things took off. Within days a lady purchased it and said she would wear it on her wedding day! I was so amazed that something I'd thought up, made from scratch, could become a wedding garment!

Thus began my journey, selling bridal shawls, ponchos, scarves, hangers, bridal bags,all made from vintage pieces, all over the world. I am perhaps known best for my layering techniques, placing one lovely vintage piece on top of the other to form a unique, one-of-a-kind piece.

I have never stopped being so very grateful, appreciative, to the wonderful ladies who purchase my creations and wear them. I can't think of anything I'd rather do than make a garment out of vintage laces and linens. And Etsy has given me the opportunity to show my creations to the world without ever leaving my home!

My Great Aunt Carrie would be amazed!
