About

Entreprenuer and loving it!

I opened "Wistful Pixie" in January of 2013.

I love to embroider and create small craft items. I am also a "glassie" at heart and a thrift store treasure hunter. My shop gives me a way to join all of those interests and express my creative heart.

I began embroidering as a child and over the years I have made many gifts for family and friends. Now here on Etsy I can create them for everyone! Many of my items are created from vintage mid-century patterns.

The "Shaker Ornaments" are and homage to my Grandma Lu, who was an avid salt and pepper shaker collector. As a child I spent many a happy hour admiring each and every S&P shaker displayed in her dining room cabinets. I have always felt sorry for "orphan" shakers, which are pretty much discarded in thrift and antique stores. I give these orphans a new lease on life by re-purposing them into ornaments, thus allowing them to now shine alone.

Thank you for visiting Wistful Pixie. I do my best to photograph, describe and give information about my creations and items offered for sale. All of the embroidered items are handmade by me. Many of the embroidered items are created from patterns of the past or from vintage kits. The salt & pepper shaker ribbon ornaments are one of a kind and I do my best to tell you what I know about the shakers themselves. In the "Treasure Trove" and "Rummage Sale" sections you will find small vintage items and I describe them to the best of my ability. Should you find my research in error, or I have decribed them incorrectly, please convo with me at wistfulpixie [!at] hotmail.com
