On Etsy since 2011

Creating inspired goods for adventuring little ones.

After years of big city and little city living, I've found my happiness in an old trolley station in Maine. I'm constantly inspired by the abundance of nature around me and the playful spirits of my children! I started making my Magical Creature Wings a few years ago when trying to make the perfect flamingo costume. It didn't take long for those wings to find many adventures of their own. The original pair is still in use for bike riding, flying through the woods, sidewalk chalking in the skateboard bowl and of course for Sunday morning pancake making! Endlessly inspiring!

My aim in sewing and creating is to make items that are well crafted with thoughtful materials (eco friendly, local, washable, wearable and durable.) I'm deeply in love with Eco-Fi felt. Made right here in New England from recycled plastic bottles, such great stuff!

My many years as a florist in NYC deepened my love of a balanced composition and the arrangement of colors. It's been a great adventure to apply this to my whimsical children's products. Every pair of wings I create brings a smile to my face, I hope the same is true with you! Happy flying!

2018: A little note: Devastatingly, in the winter of 2018 it was brought to my attention that a company in China had stolen 6 of my designs. Copied to the last stitch, being sold for pennies on the dollar. Using pictures of my kiddos and their friends. This is heartbreaking to have happen as an artist and a business owner. I support my family with Tree + Vine, it is my full time job. I also employ a bunch of rad local mama's to help in my busy seasons! Please know that your support of my business means so much to me! I love my customers! I only sell through Etsy, if you see my designs elsewhere, please know that no a penny goes to me and in this global economy there is little I can do to stop this from happening. Buy local! Support small businesses! Keep it magical, xoxo Ellen

Production time is currently 1-2 weeks and changes seasonally. I'll let you know when your item is in the mail. Please let me know if you need your order within a certain time frame and I will try my best to accommodate! Express sewing services are available.

Once shipped I cannot be held responsible if lost or damaged. It's a huge heartbreaker but sometimes the postal service doesn't come through. In the unlikely event this does happen please let me know and I will try to be of assistance. Shipping time is not guaranteed unless upgraded to priority express (US only).

I do not insure orders, if you would like your order insured let me know and we can add that on. Insurance is generally only a few dollars :) I highly recommend this for international buyers!

Domestic shipping:

Wings and costumes are shipped free in the US with USPS First Class Mail.Shipping upgrades can be found when an item is in your shopping cart.


International shipping:

Wings and costumes shipped internationally will be sent via USPS First Class Mail International (this service usually tracks but not always and is not insured, please let me know if you would like to insure your package). It's hard to give a definite timetable for arrival but it is generally takes 1-3 weeks depending on where it is going but it can take up to 6-8 weeks in some cases. If you need it faster I can upgrade to 6-10 or 3-5 day shipping for an extra charge.

International customers please be aware that you may be subject to VAT fees or taxes upon the arrival of your item. You are responsible for these charges and there is no way for me to even know of their existence. Please make sure you are aware of these charges before you order so you have no surprises!

All that being said, I wish I could hand deliver all these costumes around the world but sadly I cannot! I always hope for quick migrations and that your costume arrives to you with swiftness, magic and with the care in which it was made!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

All wings and costumes are made to order so customizing is pretty easy! Just let me know what you'd like via a convo or in the 'notes to seller' section. Need a bird or magical creature you don't see, just ask! Custom orders are final.

Sizing details

The sizes I provide are in two measurements: inches from wing tip to wing tip and the general age in which they should fit. Every body is different (yay!) let me know if you might need larger or smaller elastics or have any sizing questions.

Care instructions

Wings are all machine wash cold and dry low, you can also spot clean as needed! I recommend hand washing masks and horns as the stitching is a little bit more delicate.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Costume sets and wings are mailed in poly mailers and wrapped in brown paper. I can add a simple card if you would like just let me know in the 'notes to seller' section what it should say!
