passing pieces of history along :: grace in imperfection :: made from love

umbrellafant, the shop, came from finally listening to life-long passions for creating and gathering parts of the past and combining them with my need to organize and nurture!

You will find the fruits of my passion for all things old and cool ((my opinion on the latter)), here in my shop. I used to wonder why I was so nostalgic, why I was so easily moved by an old story or dear piece from the past. I no longer wonder :: I simply enjoy it, embrace it, soak it in and share it!

I love to draw and I can be quite intense and caught up in the details of a bird's feather or some other pencil stroke. To balance this side of me :: I wire ~ finding lots of freedom here in my wire and glass. I am also a passionate birder, native gardener and collector of quotes. Lots of freedom and grace here, too...

I believe that God created us with yearnings and gifts and the ability to give and receive joy from them. What better way to do this than to embrace those yearnings and go with their flow?

Thanks so much for visiting umbrellafant!

Welcome! This shop was born out of a desire to create. My mom would often say, "Busy hands are happy hands!", and I couldn't agree more. Nature, beautiful things and old stuff... these inspire me. Hope you enjoy wandering around umbrellafant!

Additional policies and FAQs
Gift Purchases::
If you are purchasing an item and having it shipped to someone as a gift and would like a gift card included, please let me know in the "note to seller" box. Include there exactly what you would like the card to say. I will print up the note in a cool font.

Hand-crafted Items::
Please understand that each piece is unique and hand-crafted using rustic materials. The glass beads are often 'imperfect" which is part of their charm! All vintage materials are cleaned, but may show age by a weathered patina. The wire used may rust when exposed to the elements unless otherwise stated. Many of the materials are either vintage, recycled or re-purposed.

Vintage Items::
I want my photos to correctly depict each vintage item. If their is any damage ~ chips, cracks, pieces missing, etc. ~ I will describe those as clearly as I can in the item's description as well as showing any flaws to you in the photos. Please keep in mind that 'vintage' means old and most often used.
