Etsy Shop Now Open!
Hello, girls! I decided to 'bite the bullet' and sell some of my hand-made and vintage wares on Etsy! Right now I have a pair of barely worn, gold glitter pollys and a few resin pendants I made! The necklace above is another one of my creations (the bird is from another necklace I bought). I have not listed it yet since I need to measure its length.
I am going to be selling some resin bangles, some chiffon scarves, and a few of my hand-made hair flower barettes! I am excited!
Note: As of 1-22-11, My blog, "Betty's Vintage Musings," is now "The DC Metro Retro."
I was born in the mid-70s in Richmond, Virginia to two fabulous European-born parents. My Norwegian father father taught me to be intelligent and kind, while my Irish mother instilled a sense of fierce strength and independence. Growing up in the 80s, my friends pined for Poison tickets and Guess jeans yet I loved The Cure and wanted vintage wool cardigans and black satin bullet bras. I prided myself on standing apart from the mainstream and having the "audacity" to think for myself.
So, here I am, 15-20 years later. I am still in vintage and still questioning everything. I went to college, got married, and earned a Master's Degree. I am a linguist, artist, amateur makeup artist, and business owner. Yet no matter what my job title is or what style I wear, the one thing that matters to me the most is to be kind to everyone.
Fight for what you believe in, family and friends come first, and use logic and reason always.
