Long before my Pinterest admiration, I must admit, I had an attentiveness to rare, eclectic pieces and DIY projects. After getting engaged to my amazing husband in 2011, I began to gather thoughts for our wedding, and was drawn to the rustic, casual-chic decor that was soon becoming a trend. I was determined to find the perfect accents that would set the backdrop for this once in a lifetime event, but discovered that the options in Windsor & Essex-County were limited. Persistent on making my vision come to life, I decided to take up the reins and go full force into my next plan: become the solution.
Being creative has always come naturally to me, as I am passionate about expressing myself in various facets of the arts. As a high-school teacher in the fine & performing arts, I found that collecting and searching for these "little treasures" (on my spare time) seemed to fit right in, and eventually became a hobby.
Post-wedding, I decided to continue my passion for uncovering unique and one-of-a-kind pieces. I take pride in bringing ideas to life with salvaged items and personalized charms, and in creating a timeless vibe that many are seeking.
As a world traveler, I am so proud to have found my niche where I was born and raised. Rustic Charms has given me the opportunity to meet a diversity of beautiful people, keep busy with something I am passionate about on my spare time, while working with and supporting local businesses. I respect, honour, and appreciate my community and the individuals who make a difference in it, and aspire to reciprocate this goodness.
