About

I've been living in France for just over eight years and I fell in love with the flea markets. Known as Vide Greniers, Brocantes or Marche aux Puces, thrifting is a way of life for my family, and it is how we primarily furnish our home and dress ourselves.

I love nothing better than to head out on Sunday mornings to search for treasures. I started out collecting trims and buttons for my paper crafts, many of which you'll find in my shop. I love it when I come upon a stash of buttons or trims that obviously came from a crafty woman's home. Wound on, or stitched to pieces of cardboard, I am taken instantly back to their sewing nook in my mind.

We dream of owning a stone farmhouse one day, and so I am always looking for furniture, decor and kitchen items to one day furnish it. In the meantime you'll find a good selection…

We dream of owning a stone farmhouse one day, and so I am always looking for furniture, decor and kitchen items to one day furnish it. In the meantime you'll find a good selection of those in my shop for your own home.

I spend my days chasing after a four year old, crafting whenever I can, and enjoying the beauty of the French countryside close to Provence. I love writing, and taking photos and telling stories, and scrapbooking, and making our home lovely, all while enjoying the kisses and cuddles of said four year old. My husband holds down the fort in the kitchen, and stocks our wine cellar. Things probably couldn't be better!

I am also a scrapbooker and papercrafter who loves good design and you can find my items related to these passions in my other shop: Callaloo Soup Designs.
