From an early age, Becky always had a crayon, pencil, colored paper and other craft supplies her Art Teacher dad would give her to keep her out of trouble. Her love of vintage things started when she was little and her parents would stop at any and all antique shops on their family vacations. Armed with the creative bug, great sense of humor (thanks to her mom), a love of all things vintage and a sense of adventure, she moved from a small town in upstate New York to San Francisco in the early 90's to attend the Academy of Art College. After college, she worked as a web designer for a time. In October of 2001 she moved to Seattle and hasn't looked back. She and her two cats currently share an apartment near Lake Washington.

            This was a Christmas gift for my brother in law. Their smoke detector is really sensitive and it is usually my brother in law's job to deactivate it when my sister is cooking. It goes off at the slightest sign of smoke. Anyways, they laughed about the gift and said it was unique.

                  Such a cute towel! It was hard to give it away and not keep for myself. It is very good quality and such a creative and cute design.
