"Life Begins At the End of Your Comfort Zone"...

This is so true!

I often look at where I am today, having opened the shop just a little over a year ago after some significant life changing events that lead me down this path.  I wasn't sure how it would all go and never could have imagined all that has come out of chasing this dream.  

This adventure has provided so many amazing opportunities to CREATE...has taught me how to NURTURE my DREAM.  And left me excited and INSPIRED to get up and try new things everyday.

So how do we CELEBRATE?  A GIVEAWAY! 


Since the shop is all about Vintage, Salvaged Treasures, and Handmades I've put together some fun things to help spark your Creative Spirit...

The Fall Edition of Flea Market Style Magazine, a wonderful soft minty green salvaged piece of Moulding, a Fork Plant Tag that reads "Nurture" and a fun Upcycled Sweater Tape Measure.

The Witches Cafe...

Time sure got away from me!  I haven't posted in quite a while.  And Halloween is creeping up!
I normally am not a very big fan of Halloween decorating but since we did a show at the beginning of October we thought it'd be fun to create a SPOOKY place in the shop.

Welcome to the Witches Cafe...


Excuse the cobwebs they are just character in this cafe...


And don't even think about complaining about the service!


Any problems will be dealt with at the discretion of the cafe owner...


Lots of tasty ingredients...


Loads of creepy charm...


Grab some friends and join the party...


At the Witches Cafe...

Hope you had a SPOOKTACULAR time!
