For your creating needs I have opened a new Etsy shop called What Remains. I am always on the lookout for embellishments and vintage goods for my collage and mixed media work, jewelry, altered items and more. So I have decided to open my shop and specialize in what I like to work with best..... vintage and vintage themed items. German glass embellishments, distressed and aged charms, velvet ribbon rosettes, vintage bottles, vintage hardware, grunged and distressed paper goods and more will always be in stock, with more to come in the future. I hope you take a look at continue to come back to see what new additions I have for your creating needs!
Only a few feet from the window of our cabin, we happened to come upon this tiny Hummingbird nest, with the mother flitting around and stopping every so often to sit on her eggs. She didn't seem to mind on-lookers, so I quickly snapped a few pictures of her, then admired her from afar, so I wouldn't disturb her. I wish we were at our cabin more often so I could see the progress of the babies! I imagine by the time I am back up there, they will have hatched, and "flown the coop"! I also wish I'd had my camera when we were boating on the river and happened to witness a Bald Eagle swooping down for his fish dinner right in front of us!
My name is Carol and I am an addict. I cannot get enough of things of old..... buttons, lacey things, rusty musty things, bits and bobs all which make up my creations. I would consider myself a self taught multi media artist, but all of my things have this in common... my love for nature, animals and anything vintage. I am married, mother of 4 children, residing in a 120 year old Victorian home. My idea of heaven is spending time with family, and even more so if we are at "B's Nest", our 80 year old log cabin tucked in the woods of Northern Michigan. Favorite hobby is (as always) my love of animals, antiques and vintage finds, and currently creating things for home, family, or etsy!!
