Serendipity Studio CW

"I have a love of vintage, whether it's old movies, thrift store antiques, or vintage ephemera that I can use in my art. I also love flowers and gardening, which can be hard in Arizona. I try to incorporate both of those loves into my art and every piece I make. I create mixed media canvases that are vintage inspired in various sizes, each having an inspirational quote or message. I can take commission orders for a specific message and color scheme. My new obsession is doodling that is inspired by Zentangle and Zenspirations style. "

Liz Knijnenburg

"My name is Annelies and I live in the Netherlands in a town called Zoetermeer with my husband. Our two daughters are studying and living in towns nearby.

I'm from the fifties and was born in December.
I remember the cold winters we had with iceflowers on the windows and a heater that worked on coal. Sitting before the fireplace, drinking hot cocoa, looking at the real candles in the Christmastree, I became a real Christmaholic.
Since 2012 I'm a co-writer on, a Dutch website for Christmas lovers !

always have been a collector and over the years I collected some beautiful bookmarks which I'm selling here on Etsy now.
I love to stroll on flea-markets looking for vintage jewelry and antique postcards and other interesting things. If there's anything special you're looking for, please convo me, so I can look for it when strolling:) 
I hope you love my shop and drop by to buy something ! Enjoy !"

Butterfly In The Attic

"Looking back over the years of my childhood I can easily see that I was destined to be a treasure hunter. A treasure hunter in more than just the sense of always looking for that valuable piece of art or collectible but in the sense that I could find treasures almost everywhere...

This wonderful little shop has been designated to host my digital creations and my passion to restore those beautiful antique images that might otherwise be lost. I carry several lovely instant downloads that you can use for you next creation.

Christie Cottage

"I like to paint, sew, knit and crochet. Anything that I can recycle is more fun! 

My great-grandmother worked with her hands until they worked no more. My grandmother also worked with her hands until they worked no more. I spent a great deal of time with them. More so with my great-grandmother who was also one of the best friends I ever had. I learned that love is easily worked into every handmade item you touch. When I pick up a crochet hook, my great-grandmother's love floods my memory and thus, love is worked right in my piece.

The simple things in life are best. They are easily afforded. And are by far the most appreciated." ...Learn More...

Butterfly In The Attic on Artfire

"First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in Palm Springs. I live in a beautiful contemporary home where my husband I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.
Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou. So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops. I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you.."

The Twisted Redhead

"I grew up in a noisy, artistic household smack dab in the middle of small town academia. That right brain/left brain theory was debunked in our house, what with a college professor and musician/composer Dad, and a registered nurse and seamstress Mom...the line was definitely blurred. So it stands to reason that all of their six offspring would go in one direction or the other with artistic and/or scholastic leanings (sometimes both, which makes it fun). Family reunions are never dull.

My appreciation for the arts has always been an influential and enthusiastic part of my life. It has taken until fairly recently, however, after years in the corporate world and real estate industry, to realize I wanted a much more 'hands-on' relationship with the creative process. I was honored to be part of an artistic collaboration for several years, and thoroughly enjoyed working with amazing talents in many different mediums. What an incredible experience to take along as I embarked on my own journey!...Learn More...
