Get to Know

First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in Palm Springs. I live in a beautiful contemporary home where my husband I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.

Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou. So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops. I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you.

Collecting vintage items, specifically postcards, finding beautiful natural works of art, and natural crafts has been a passion of mine for most of my life. During my childhood I would often take hikes and search for treasures: gems and minerals, old milk glass bottles that were left behind by people working the land, and herbs to dry by our old wood stove.

If it was raining I spent my free time crafting with my treasures or studying books about what I could find or make in the future. Not much has change since those days; I still dream big, work hard, and love to search for treasures.

My postcard & ephemera collection has grown over the years but I still study each of the old images and lose myself in time travel. A butterfly knows no boundaries ... I just dream.
