About Me

Many years ago, when I was but a little seedling, I discovered a tiny shop in a tiny Scottish village. It was called 'Jenny A' Things' and was a paradise for a little girl with a love of small treasures. Now that I am grown I still have a love of the little things - little curiosities that make you wonder how they are made or where they come from. This is the inspiration for my Etsy store. I am an artist of over 30 years standing, an obsessive crafter and frustrated academic with a love for ancient history, the great outdoors, yoga, reading, zombie movies and all things quirky. I currently live in rural Scotland and run my business from whatever free surface I have in the house. I create wildlife and landscape art, paper beads, handmade silk cord and paper craft tutorials.
