This store is full of vintage love and cute kitschy wonderment!  Each item is handmade with love, and shipped directly to you for your enjoyment!

Where are you from? I'm from the Lonestar State, more specifically San Antonio How did you get your store started, What inspires you? My store started on a whim really. I found a picture of an original 50's bathroom on pinterest that had a bunch of chalkware fish and mermaids on the wall and I was in LOVE. I started searching high and low for vintage chalkware but I realized really quick how expensive it was. Seriously 100's of dollars for a set of mermaids. There was just NO WAY I was going to spend that much. Well, one day I came across a set of mermaids for cheap and I bought them. Then I researched different ways to reproduce them and also different types of plaster as well. Everything from craft plaster of paris to professional art plaster. I finally found the perfect materials and it's been all fun ever since. As for inspiration, everything kitschy vintage. I love the colors and characters and how everything was just so innocent and fun. I LOVE pinup so I try to give my mermaids and pinup girls the red pouty lips, long eye lashes and red nails to match. How long have you been open and what is some of your favorite items? Like I said, this was all on a whim. As I type this, I have been "open" for only a few hours!! o.0 what celebrity would you most like to wear your items? Well, you can't wear them but every celebrity that I would want to hang my art in their home is unfortunately no longer with us. The only living celebrity would maybe be Zooey Deschanel. if you had to use only one word to describe yourself, what would it be? Hmmm... one word? CRAFTY!! haha what is your biggest pet peeve? Ughh... I actually have 2 that really bug me. The first is people who chew ice. I don't know why but that gets me EVERYTIME. The second is people who eat loudly. Loud chewing or crunching their chips. Try living with 2 little boys that think it's funny to crunch and a hubby who will sometimes chew ice. Drives me crazy. what are your favorite websites? There are so many but I'm more of a thrift kinda girl so I spend a lot of time on Ebay, Etsy, Ruby Lane and what is your dream job? I would love to be able to make a living doing everything I love. Make nail polish, paint mermaids and shop. Dreams come true? Right? what would people be surprised to learn about you? People who know me but have never met me in person are ALWAYS surprised at how short I am .. 4' 8".. I'm not short.. I'm "fun-sized". LOL
