dottiedee: mingling vintage and new materials and ideas

Like many people, I have always felt an emotional response to things reminiscent of the early years of my life. Show me a 1950 Ford and I remember the smell of the upholstery and the feel of the shiny stainless steel starter button. Over the past few years, I began collecting fabrics, clothing, and furniture from those days; I explored yard sales, estate sales, and auctions, searching for treasures. I started thinking about other uses for some of my finds, which led to tables and footstools made from old wooden cash drawers, windows with old glass imbedded in epoxy, purses made of vintage neckties, dresses fashioned from doilies. I have enjoyed gathering a few friends together to help them complete some of these project ideas.

The name dottiedee honors my mother, Dottie, and my mother-in-law, Thelba Dee, two wonderful women from those days who were truly my treasures.


Shop policies

Last updated on January 24, 2012
I love to create handmade unique things of beauty. I often use vintage materials to create something new, but I also love beautiful new fabrics and yarns. I hope to make someone else smile when they see what I have created.
