About

a pretty song and pretty things

I started making ornaments with vintage wallpaper for the holiday 2011 season. My goal was to make them for friends and family, but I ended up not being able to make them fast enough to satisfy demand. That was a refreshing change for a sculptor such as myself, because almost no one buys sculpture.

This "income" thing hooked me, so I figured I'd give jewelry a shot in the not-Christmas season. Like the ornaments, it lets me fuss and play with pretty things which I can then release into the world and get a little money for my troubles.

The shop's name comes from the Heart song, which is one of my favorites and which I think perfectly captures the spirit of the upcycling aesthetic I embrace. The logo was inspired by my Boston terrier Bosco, whose playfulness is envious when it's not exhausting. I don't have a pet butterfly, but I used to have cats named Harold and Maude, which is my favorite movie.

    I'm a sculptor with an increasingly less guilty crafting pleasure. My etsy stuff allows me to satisfy my obsessive tendencies, glorify the vintage wallpaper patterns I love, indulge my need to shop, and share my affection for shiny and less shiny.

Welcome to my shop! My items are hand-crafted using authentic vintage wallpaper from the 1900s-1970s. Much of it is too fragile to be hung on a wall, so I'm giving it another chance to be appreciated. They just don't make it like this anymore (which is sometimes a good thing).
