  • About me

    I've always loved creating things with my hands, antiques, and anything that is beautiful to me in some way. I love collecting beautiful items for myself, and am discovering the art of sharing with others who share this love.

    A big part of creativity is the sense of satisfaction that comes from making beautiful things of quality that brings pleasure to others! I'm always looking for new and fresh designs, so please check back often.

    And, while the compliment of a sale is wonderful, my top priority is customer service and satisfaction. I want each and every shopper to have an indulgent experience, and to know that they are the most important part of my on-line shop.

    Unless otherwise noted, all my creations are of my own design and one-of-a-kind. If you see a purse, jewelry item, fabric flower, or anything else with a design you like, but want it in a different color, fabric, more pockets, less, or whatever, I'll be happy to work with you on a custom order.

    Just to share, that with rare exception, and unless otherwise noted, the fabrics used in my purses and home dec pieces are pre-washed. Due to my own contact allergies, I'm aware of others who share similar chemical sensitivities. However, I do share my home with 2 Greyhounds - so if you are highly senstive to dogs may want to be aware of this when purchasing fabric goods or clothing.

    Please contact me if you see something you'd prefer in a different color/fabric - a purse with more/fewer pockets, longer/shorter straps, or a particular fabric flower in another fabric/color.

    Most of my bags are of my own design, & while you can purchase less expensive purses elsewhere, please know that my fabric bags are made from quality designer fabrics, thread, interfacing/ fleece, & sewn with the highest standards.

    I use the highest quality quilt shop batik available - more expensive, but in the long run, fine batik resists wrinkles and fading, and wears like iron. A purse made from fine batik will last for years.

    Of note, with rare exception, & unless otherwise noted, the fabrics used in my purses and home dec pieces are pre-washed. However, I do share my home with 2 Greyhounds - so please keep this in mind if you are senstive to dogs.
