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.

Perfect Gift


It's an inside joke of my family that whenever my grandma cooks; her fir e alarm goes off. This was one of her favorite gifts from last Chrsitmas.



I would not buy this product again


While this looked perfect when it arrived, it turned into a ball of Cotten after it was a complete mess. Couldn't even be folded! Unless you don't plan to use this item I wouldn't recommend.

Well-done dinners


My mother notoriously set off the smoke detectors when I was growing up so we always knew when dinner was ready. This tweak was made for all "well-done" cooks out there. The ironic thing? Mom went on to become a firefighter!



I'd recommend it


It's a great hand towel
