Kristeen's Profile

About

WHAT CAME BEFORE

+++Like my father before me, I am a farmer at heart with a vaguely engineer-like mind, and like my mother I am a musician/dreamer with one foot planted firmly in the New World but with ties to a long distant past in France. In my former life, I wrote books (French Girl Knits & French Girl Knits:Accessories), but now have dedicated myself to living my dream of creating a French-Inspired Organic Lifestyle Boutique...voilà...French Girl Organics!

+++ I've had a passion for herbs, flowers and gardens since I was a wee thing growing up on my parent's oyster farm on the wild, coastal beaches of Southwest Washington. My mother's French Cajun heritage made sure the house was filled with the smells of the best gumbo this side of New Orleans, lots of strong French Market coffee and the music of her youth as a jazz…

My mother's French Cajun heritage made sure the house was filled with the smells of the best gumbo this side of New Orleans, lots of strong French Market coffee and the music of her youth as a jazz vocalist in the French Quarter...is it any wonder I came to love all things French -- from perfume to paté -- i was hooked!

WHAT IS NOW

+++My own family of six now lead tours in France, in an area little known by most Americans, the Languedoc province, which borders the Mediterranean from the Rhone to Spain. This yearly visit to the motherland really gets the fires going with inspired ideas to share with you all in my etsy shops. I love France and it would be a dream to live there, but until we do, this is a way to keep the love alive by creating my interpretation of all that I adore about the place. It's just a little piece of La Belle France seen through my eyes...

+++We handmake every product that French Girl Organics sells from my own original recipes that have been tested and used by our family for over 20 years. Organic. Vegan. No Animal Testing. That is our credo & we endeavor to support organic farming the world over by using 90-100% Certified Organic Ingredients to formulate our lovely offerings.
