QueenBe's Altered Needs

My love and obsession of nature, animals, and anything old and timeworn sparked an opportunity for me to combine my love of creating, and begin my own business as my 4 children grew. Antiques always have been a large part of my life, and I still even have the same antique coat rack that I purchased while antiquing with my mother when I was 13 years old! Found objects , from the rustiest old key to the tiniest scrap of lace hold a fascination for me, as I imagine the previous hands that held them and the former purposes they served. And like nature, once discarded and destroyed, these simple items are gone forever. It is up to those so inclined, to preserve them .
