About Ladyinthetower

After eight years on Etsy, I decided it was time to move on to having our own, free-standing website and this is it! We're a family business, myself, Vivian and my parents Ann and Fred. The idea of a place that would allow us to work together as a family and let us explore our wide ranges of skills and interests in one place has been a dream we've had for a long time. When we found a little green converted century barn, that has been through a number of incarnations over the years, in the Hamlet of Shakespeare, Ontario, it was love at first sight. I makes masks, jewelry, art assemblages, mutant stuffed creatures, and have recently gotten into altering leather jackets and other one-of-kind fashion pieces. Ann's main focus is on hunting for the shop and co-creating the sewn works. Dad keeps all the paperwork in line. I'm the one who takes care of the on-line side of things and, so far, all of the hand-crafted work on offer here is mine. I blog about the store, our adventures and what I'm working at: www.greencottagegallery.wordpress.com
