All of my pieces mean something to me. They all have a history and story to be told. I just have so much joy bringing them back to life. I am so excited when I walk into an antique store or establishment where I see such beautiful pieces that are available to me. I love taking them home and creating what it is they are to become. Whether they are to be mine or to be someone else's new love. I am in love with Annie Sloan chalk paint, it provides a means to restore and refinish these treasures in a way that honours their history. Along with the chalk paint, there are so many beautiful fabrics and papers that can help bring out the very best in these heirlooms. I started my Etsy store to just allow me to support my artistic vision and, it allows me the freedom to stay at home and be with my beautiful granddaughter. I acquired much of my artistic side from my mom Jeannie and, I am so happy that she is letting me show off some of her amazing sewing and quilts on this Etsy store. I truly hope that you enjoy these unique items and wish for them to be a part of your life too.
UPDATE: I just started a Facebook page so that I can share my process and let you see how the pieces change from how I find them to how they are when finished. Please go check it out at https://www.facebook.com/My-Uniquely-Vintage-132676147199725/
