Current Projects

It has been a busy start of summer and the first 90 degree day has hit the city….

I have found some time to catch up on projects and add some more items to stores. Sales have actually been ok the last few weeks. It is nice to see other people think Christmas at this time of the year……

Current Projects:


Mounted sleepy doll eyes on consignment at Nest Interiors NY



A couple of new wreaths in aqua/pink in progress


A slightly overwhelming herd of vintage deer starting to get makeovers…


New Etsy Store

The photo above shows a few of the the items currently or soon to be in the store. Remember….smart people think ahead- only 200+ plus days until Christmas.
