Tell us who you are and a bit about yourself.
I'm a mama of 2 and I've got a great honey bunny helping me raise them. My little lady is 4 years old, Cypress and she has a little brother named Buckley who is a walking 1 year old! We live in South Austin in a great hood. I sling beer part-time, thrift as often as I can, play in my garden, and am dreaming of opening my sweet sweet business one day.
We know you have a great eye for vintage wear, but what else do you like to do?
I've been a long time crafter. Sewing is my favorite of them all. I get impatient often, but I learn a lot along the way. Anything creative, I'm up for. I also love to sing, but it's not as pretty as the things I find and make. Oh, and I love dirty toes.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My day starts with what I put on. What I put on starts my day off. A friend of mine once said, how tidy your car is, shows how tidy you keep your house. I suppose I use that in my fashion sense. It shows how I feel, or at least how I wanna feel. So to answer the question, cheesy to say, everyday is an inspiration.
Stranded on a desert island - If you could only have one book, movie, and CD what would they be?
Well, my vocabulary is lacking, so I would take the good ol' Dictionary.
Movie wise, I guess I would take my favorite, Harold and Maude. A little happiness, mixed with sadness, and a love story, since I am stranded right?
Music, eesh... Maybe some Brazil Classics. Something comforting in another sweet language. This would give me something else to do, learn Portuguese!
If you could spend the day with one artist or craftsman (dead or alive) who would it be?
What handmade possession do you most cherish?
My wedding ring that my honey made me.
What’s your favorite quote from a movie or book or song?
"If you wanna sing out, sing out. If you wanna be free, be free..."
Would you rather eat a spoonful of fleas or have fleas on your body for 24 hours?
I would eat them and swallow down some strong black coffee from Dominican Joe's to knock them out with a belly full of acid!
