Hi, Welcome to A Vintage Fairy!

As far back as I can remember, I have memories of a paint brush.  My mom is an artist of many talents, and I have learned much from her over the years.  I have vivid memories painting Santas and many cats, two of my first decorative collections as a child.   Where Mom's  talents with paint have taken her more into the watercolor and pastel world, mine has taken me into the furniture and accessories.  

A can of spray paint, or a can of paint and a brush can transform anything.   Over the years, if it can be painted I have probably tried to.  Everything from our kitchen table and chairs, entertainment center, candle sticks, frames and even kitchen cabinets have seen my love.  Friends are always asking for my advice on color and decor.  

I am always redoing thrift store, garage sale, vintage or my own items to bring them new life and style season by season.  With my kids getting older and more self sufficient I decided it was time to bring back some identity to myself other than Mom.  So here we go.

A new store is soon opening in Romeo, Mi and I will be displaying, selling and maybe someday teaching there.  I will be repurposing and refinishing unique vintage furniture and accessories.  I will also be available for custom work.  I plan on  featuring before and afters of my work here on this site.  I also plan to share some of our family's love and joy of fairies with you all along the way.

I hope you stay with me on this journey as I begin to try and bring joy to others with my creations, and continue to recreate myself at the same time.
