Storifying your life with vintage

Imagine the horror when I woke up one day to realize, I'm becoming my mother!

I'm being facetious, of course ... I think.

My mom was always giving new life to old things so she kept things that most people might think to discard.

And as I grew older, I inherited her passion of keeping interesting things or items I think I can reuse or repurpose.

So I kept old fabrics, collected old piano books, vintage books and maps.

But it's time to share and simplify my life. So here they are, waiting to find new homes.

I know you'll turn them into something great with your creative ideas.

When I'm not hand-making, you can find me blogging about green living on my blog ecokaren or chatting with my followers on social media. Check the links under my headshot above.

    I love repurposing the old to give a new life. There is a history attached to the old and stories that need to be told. But now it's time to share some those old vintage goodies with you. Hope you'll like them! xo Karen

I ship every Tuesday and Friday via USPS first class whenever possible to ensure the cheapest method. However, if you'd like to have it shipped via priority mail, please convo me and I will let you know what the shipping charge will be.
