Weathered Elegance, LLC
"My work reflects my lifestyle and the things that inspire me. A love to repurpose forgotten treasures and the desire to give back to animals are driving forces in my business model".
After closing my event planning business to be home with my beautiful daughters, my restless soul needed to find an outlet. I painted our home, restyled the family room and kitchen so many times,; I was driving my family crazy. I had adopted several animals and just tried to find a sense of self and peace.
Somehow, I stumbled into working on the weekends at shops that sold unique salvaged finds which was a far cry from my corporate job. As time went on, I yearned for my own business again but with a soul. So here I am saving treasures and hopefully rescuing animals at the same time.
I try to seek out unique gifts and upcycled pieces of furniture, clothing, bedding, jewelry, handbags and home decor made by artists locally and around the country....many created by stay at home moms! My grandfather had always inspired me to repurpose forgotten treasures, and I am passionionate about finding beauty in imperfection - this is the art of salvaging gracefully!
I am very proud of the jewelry I sell because each piece is handmade. Vintage watch part rings, spoon rings, spoon bracelets, leather cuffs, repurposed guitar string bracelets, etc. I rotate jewelry pieces every few months as the artists create them.
Reclaim, Reuse & Repurpose- that’s the philosophy behind some of our eclectic assemblage of unique home and garden accents. With a focus on Euro-American primitives, and vintage/antique utilitarian objects, I specialize in rescuing neglected treasures and granting them a renewed existence. A collaboration between history, nature, and art, these revitalized relics are guaranteed to keep your home interesting.
