“Growing up ME! Memory Compendium©" is my idea, my brain child. This is a fun way to record the unique and special events in our lives. Each one of us has a wonderful story to tell.

I thoughtfully wrote 100+ questions, ideas and prompts to jog your memory about every day and special events. Take this to Grandma's house. Fun, something new to do and talk about. What will you learn about each other?

VESSEL: This quaint, solid wood box is filled with 100+ hand painted and curled "wisps". The Needlepoint look top is split, part stays affixed and part of it comes off. It has a cool scene, a castle or street of houses, horse, people, trees. It is painted solid green inside. 9 1/2" L x 6 1/2" W x 6" H

JOURNAL $10.00: i selected a black patent leather look journal with a faux croc pattern. I have many journals all $10.00 each if you would prefer a different one, just message me for pics.

Take them in the car, turn off the radio and talk.... An Awesome gift at holidays, you will have something wonderful for everyone to talk about besides politics... lol Fun at dinner and holiday parties, great conversation starters. A comforting (and fun) way to pass the time for someone who is ill, recovering, recuperating, home bound or bed ridden. They can leave a written record of their youth, growing up and fond memories.

Your “Growing up ME! Memory Compendium©" has over 100 wisps of hand painted paper, each with a question, thought or idea. Select a “wisp” and write about that time in your life. What do you remember? What were you were doing, thinking, and feeling? (If you select a “wisp” does not inspire you, toss it, there are plenty.)

I personally hand paint, cut and curl your paper "wisps" for your delight. Unroll them like a curl of ribbon or a scroll.

Generational, regional, socio-economic, sibling order, boy or girl, urban or rural, our upbringing makes our life experience unique. Record and share your life experiences with your children, parents and loved ones. Thank you for your purchase AND I would love to someday read all about how you grew up!

I am just starting out and shipping only in the US for now.

The first price is USPS Priority Mail shipping. I will send you the tracking number as soon as I sent it. We can both track it. USPS says it will arrive in two days, but that is not guaranteed... Please allow for an extra day or so.

My items are different (sizes, shapes & weights) I do not have a "Ship with another item" price. I will be happy to combine, weigh, measure and give you a price.

I listed the FEDEX One Rate price, 4 day service. If you would like overnight or expedited shipping,(via FedEx) please contact me for an exact price for your treasure (I'll need your zip code).

I do not include an invoice or price information in your package.

USPS shipping insurance of $50.00 for lost items is standard per package. FEDEX has $100.00 insurance standard. You would be in charge of any claims against the shipper.

If you will be in the Greenville/Spartanburg you can (pre-arrange with me to) pick up your treasure from Vintage Warehouse,1 201 Union Street, Spartanburg, SC where I sell my treasures locally.


I happily accept PayPal, credit cards, money orders or cashiers checks.

Please let me know if I am shipping this as a gift direct to your recipient. I'll include a note for you, let me know what to write.

I will ship your treasure to you within two to three business days after I receive your payment. Sooner if I can, of course. I can't wait for you to see it!

Returns & exchanges

I want you to LOVE your purchase!

Please give me the opportunity to resolve any issue that may arise. I am flexible, fair and committed to the highest level of customer service.

Damaged in Shipping: If it arrives damaged (I am an OCD packer and I probably go overboard with the packaging - bubble wrap, tissue, etc. - recycled & reused of course), let's talk to see if I can repair it or work something out (a trade/swap) that is equitable. Most of my items are one of a kind (except prints) so I probably do not have another one "just like it" to replace it with.

If you want to return it, please contact me ASAP. I'll accept a return within 5 days of receipt. You pay to ship it back to me and I'll refund the purchase price -(minus what it cost me to ship to you) when I receive it in it's original condition.

I want you to be happy!

Allergies: Non-smoking household, no cats. Big dogs...

I have been perfecting my Memory Compendiums© for over a year. So thrilled at their evolution from concept to reality, and the powerful positive feedback from everyone. Joy, laughter, love and memories shared - amazing.

I love to do pet and people portraits. I am working on my listing for my custom MOD pet portraits on wood.

If you would like something custom, special or specific please ask me about it. I'll do my best to make your wish a reality.

If you are in the Greenville/Spartanburg area you can see my treasures at the Vintage Warehouse, 1201 Union Street, Spartanburg, SC 29302

I am always garage sale shopping, Goodwill, Salvation Army, Thrift Stores, Estate Sales (of course, always on the look out for something I might see at the "Road Side Boutique"). You never know what I may find. I can search for your special item and re-work it to fulfill your dream.
