About

I have been hypnotized by all things shiny and colorful throughout my life.

The Fashion Institute of Technology is my alma mater. Always the artiste, I finally ended up in one of the most inspiring places in the world!
I indulged in all kinds of art classes, sculpting, illustration, painting, art history, (a fave), drafting and much more.

I earned my Interior Design degree and also a Bachelors in Home Furnishings, marketing.

After that I branched into the industry, loving
the interaction with people, the colors and textures and the creativity. Eventually, focusing on wallcovering- I became a certified wallcovering expert.

I have been hypnotized by all things shiny and colorful throughout my life.

The Fashion Institute of Technology is my alma mater. Always the artiste, I finally ended up in one of the most inspiring places in the world!
I indulged in all kinds of art classes, sculpting, illustration, painting, art history, (a fave), drafting and much more.

I earned my Interior Design degree and also a Bachelors in Home Furnishings, marketing.

After that I branched into the industry, loving
the interaction with people, the colors and textures and the creativity. Eventually, focusing on wallcovering- I became a certified wallcovering expert.

While working at a custom wallcoverings sales job, I found the love of my life-FRENCH BEADED FLOWERS! One of my clients was working on a project that absolutley entranced me. She was making beaded flowers-tons of them- in brilliant colors to make a french-style chandelier for her daughter.

After that, I taught my self. I learned the techniques, the history, sourced thousands of places, built a library on the subject and even collect vintage creations.

I also work with many other forms of expression, knitting, (also self-taught), needlepoint and crafting, but the bulk of this shop will be my flowers.

I have a loving husband that encourages my creativity and a son in college who is an opera singer and is studying psycology, ( i am so proud of him). Lastly, I have a young, vibrant, beautiful daughter in fourth grade ,who I have honored by naming my shop after.

I hope you enjoy my shop and my expression of love of all things vintage.

Please don't hesitate to convo me, even if it's and unrelated to the items in my shop.

Enjoy!
