About

Made From the Past For the Present

I grew up going to flea markets & street fairs in the Seattle metropolitan area. Used, old stuff was considered the norm.

As a young girl I spent several weeks every summer with my Norwegian Great Grandmother Helen at her home in Nordland, Washington. We passed the days walking the beaches searching for seashells & driftwood, picking wild blackberries, playing her old piano & cooking everything from scratch.

My fondest memories are those where we would take her old broken Christmas decorations & make them look "new" again by gluing pieces together, adding weird stuff like seashells, finally covering with glitter. Little did I know at the time we were actually repurposing or up-cycling.

Lucky for me I get to hunt for things I love & repurpose old Christmas stuff just as I did with Grandma Helen. I hope my shop brings back memories for you.

Thank you for stopping by.
