Welcome to my site.

My name is Connie and I have been an avid crafter for over 25 years. Selling my wares at local craft markets in Victoria,  I've seen many styles and fashions in the craft industry, often changing with the seasons.  I've tried most but there are still some I would like to do. Looking back on photos of what was considered fashionable and innovative crafts 20 odd years ago, it always amazes me and I think, "did we really make those"?  LOL

On this site I would like to showcase whats on offer now.  I think I have grown and expanded my range and love of handicrafts, to the more "american primitive" crafting style. Incorporating vintage pieces, revamping old wares to make them decorative items for your home. Gone are the traditional stained timber products replaced with painted and distressed pieces. No longer the stained heart cutout shelving but painted black or deep burgandy and then distressed.



The following pages highlight many "new" craft items.

A lot inspired from Primitive American sites. From their early history, their forefathers, pilgrims etc.

Much emphasis is placed on such words as -

Primitive, simplify, blessings, faith, love & family.

I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed making them. 


Please Note:

the craft items in the following pages are made from vintage finds and remade, refurbished, revamped and are therefore "One Of A Kind."

Some items may be made up again

but the majority are unique 'one off' pieces
