Celebrating the amusing, curious, eccentric, eclectic, exotic, fantastical, quaint, unusual & whimsical.

About me? As a child I developed a love of dolls and books. That infatuation grew with an instilled appreciation for antiques and vintage, things owned by someone else at one time, perhaps a family member, or maybe just a stranger with similar tastes.

As I progressed through the working world of adulthood, I began to fantasize about having my own business, and even started planning for a cookbook bookshop. But, along the way, another desire took hold of my brain. What sort of business or career would allow me to work from home? Most of what I found, in that regard, held little interest for me, which was frustrating.

One day, several years ago, I accidentally came across Etsy for the first time, and it truly was a "Eureka!" moment for me, a life-changer, though it took a while to evolve into reality. I could have my own business AND work from home!

Now I do both and am so fortunate to be a part of this creative community of artists and collectors.

So do stop by sometime, relax and browse. Take your time, there's no pressure, just a feast for the eyes and a bit of nostalgia thrown in.
