This Whimsy House necklace is fashioned from two vintage buttons. The base is a glowing warm butterscotch colored beauty. It cradles a layered button with a shabby chic muted chartreuse back ground and golden flower center. The pendant has a gold plated bail and hangs from an 18″ brown twisted satin necklace (other options include a 24″ gunmetal or vintage bronze chain) . Perfect for everyday… from casual to elegant.
I started Whimsy House on a whim, of course, in the spring of 2007. Shortly after my second daughter was born it quickly became evident that my “stay-at-home-mommy” title was overtaking that of “interior designer career woman.” My passion to remain in a creative business lead to the start of Whimsy House. In the early 90’s I owned The Angelic Rabbit, an antiques and gift shop, with my mom in Middleton, WI. My love for vintage goodness bloomed and my retail knowledge grew quickly. All my experiences and interests merged with the creation of Whimsy House.
My designs are inspired by all things vintage, the sentimental pieces of the past. I derive an immense amount of pleasure through creating one-of-a-kind accessories with findings from yesteryear. I turn ridiculously giddy over a mason jar of old buttons, a box filled with well worn fabrics or trims, a broken down jewelry box of partner-less earrings and strands of old beads. Oh, the world of possibilities! The pendants, rings and brooches just screaming to be born!
