About The Pretty Vintage Studio & The Vintage God Girl
Our Studio houses my favorite things, including an enamel top table (nothing sticks to it), and my antique walking wheel (great workout!).
Discovering, Creating, and Encouraging Beauty in the Everyday!
Who We Are:
Hi! I'm Kim Hazer, affectionately now known as "The Vintage God Girl"! I adore all things vintage and believe that God calls each of us His vintage children. To be vintage is to be uniquely created during a particular season, for a particular purpose.
In 2016, I embarked on a Year of Creativity to see what I would discover! I let go of my extreme 'planner-girl' nature, and instead focused on creating beautiful things. Although I had always enjoyed creative things, and believed in using that creativity in 'regular life', I began to use it everywhere. Over the course of 2016, I re-discovered my passion for life and all that it contained!
In 2017, after a long health battle, I came out of it stronger and more joyful than I have ever been, with an even greater zeal for life. My husband and I began paring down, cleaning up, and sorting through our lives to really get to the heart of what is most important to us. We revamped the outside of our home, and freshened up the inside. We launched "The Studio Garden" a small herb garden where I grow assorted herbs to share and educate with. We also have a small patio for afternoon tea.
My husband and I live in a small town in the Midwest, actively serve in our church, and enjoy the outdoors.
What We DO:
My goal is to create, or offer, items that bring some beauty into your world in simple ways. In 2016 we launched our Planner Jewelry Line, because every #plannerbabe needs some bling for her planner! In 2017 we plan to launch and expand our "Vintage Child of God" Line, which includes the Vintage God Girl. We are super excited about her!Also in 2017 there are plans in the works to change some of our offerings to seasonal products. Hand spinning wool in the summertime is not a fun task! While paper making is much easier in the summer, where we can make a mess outdoors.
There is something special about knowing that what you purchase for either your own use, or to give as a gift, is not mass-produced. Each item here is as unique as the receiver or purchaser. Time and thought are put into each item, and when it doesn't meet our own standards, it is still shared at a deep discount. While I realize that a more commercial product could be less costly to create, my husband and I value craftsmanship as a dying artform. Whether it is the furniture we buy, the clothes we wear, or the food we eat, artisans are to thank for it all. Our home is filled with antique and vintage treasures that were lovingly created by hand, and have stood the test of time. The creators took pride in what they created. While this is a business with bills to pay, we have chosen to stay true to what believe.
Just look for the Vintage God Girl!
