Creativity is God’s gift to us. Using creativity is our gift back to God.

Looking for an escape route as child, I fell in love with all things beautiful, vintage and DIY, long before it was actually trendy.

I am happily married to my soulmate and we have 4 children and 3 grandchildren, 11 rescue dogs.  Over the years we had many other foster kids and animals in and out our home.

I have turned my life-long passion into a business with The Vintage Connection.  The Vintage Connection is all about helping people express themselves in the most affordable way possible.

Located in Alberton, Gauteng, The Vintage Connection is a delightful adventure in living the repurposed and re-styled life.

I see creativity in all and through my passion for nature I explored more into my creative side. There is inspiration all around us. Not only in nature, but in pieces done by talented and creative people all around the world.


My childhood taught me to be resilient and resourceful.
I learned that hardship and joy is woven together within each person that can be expressed through creativity.
I understand that we are not perfect and what it is to forgive and to ask for forgiveness.
There is strength in vulnerability and in God’s image we are perfect.
Everyone is creative and created to be by our Creator Himself.
It is a gift to take something worth throwing out and making it beautiful as a gift for someone.
There is beauty even in ugliness.
Vintage never goes out of style.
Handmade is always better for a part of your heart and soul goes into it.
Imperfections are also perfect.

I am continually looking for new, unique and original items. Something that is cost effective and inspiring – Especially in view of myself reconditioning, recycling, upcycling not just bought pieces but also commissioned pieces.
