I've lived in beautiful New England for the past eleven years with my husband Robert dogs, Dezi & Tillie and cats Willow, Mandy, Slim and Jr. I love the change in seasons, and believe or not...I love the snowy winters. I was born and raised in Northern, CA and my identical twin sister, older sister, mother, nephews, and best friends are still on the west coast, and I miss them dearly, but I love it here. Part of the reason I started my business 10 yrs. ago, was to be able to afford airplane tickets to fly out to see them, now I'm too busy to leave, go figure! It is amazing how a dream turned into a hobby, and that hobby turned into a successful business. I am truly blessed.
We enjoy taking road trips across New England that include antique shopping, flea market hunting, and estate sale hopping. I am always looking for unique pieces to add to my ever growing collection for my art, and my husband collects vinyl records. We enjoy hiking and visiting historical places. I also love taking photos of scenery, old landmarks and houses across New England during the changing seasons. If we can bring our dogs along in these fun trips, even better!
My name is Caroline Michelle and the name of my business is Laughter and Lemondrops. For the past 9 years, my passion is creating one of a kind party and home decor pieces in addition to handmade vintage holiday decor. My art is derived from bits and pieces of unique vintage treasures I’ve picked up in my travels over the years at antique stores, flea markets, estate sales, tag sales and my favorite place...my grandmother’s house. I enjoy taking old items and bringing new life to them. My decor pieces include vintage inspired putz houses, decorated bottle brush trees, party decor, centerpieces, wedding bouquets, baby shower decor, and ball ornament wreaths. My handmade pieces include vintage ornaments, german die cut images, french trim and lace, millinery fruit and flowers, antique buttons, feathers, vintage costume jewelry, vintage pottery and a variety of random vintage trinkets that I've collected over the years.
In addition to my ecommerce website, I list my items in my eBay store and social media pages, my art is also sold in various stores across the United States and Canada. These customers contact me to place large orders to sell in their stores. Also, my handmade pieces are shipped out monthly to Dorothea's Shoppe in Folsom, CA. I have a large glass case in this beautiful year round holiday shop.
My art has been featured on the Netflix show "Grace and Frankie" (season 2 episode 1), in a 2018 Christmas campaign for the company "Skip Hop" for Target, and in the Nov./Dec. 2018 issue of Dollhouse Miniatures magazine.
Thank you so much for supporting me and other small town artists by buying local handmade items made here in the beautiful U.S.A. It’s your support that allows us to keep doing what we love to do!
