Working on my shops just outside Montreal with my hubbie, our three cats and a fourth ‘outside guardian’ kitty Tiger. We feel a responsibility to give some of our money and time to take care of feral/lost cats in need in the area on top of our other two adopted inside cats.

I have always been the creative type, crafting almost everyday with mum in my early years, while being quite the acting/singing type on the other side with dad. That translated later on in life being part of a theater company for many years, member of a psych-folk band for a couple of years and taking art workshops here and there.

I have an inclination to collect unusual, funky, go-go, retro and what-the-hell-is-that-for objects, these things that amazingly are often left unloved at garage sales. I am also passionate about any item that brings back that feeling of sweet ‘innocence’ from the 50’s or 60’s….of course let’s not forget about the 70’s of the hippy-ish-funky décor I grew up in.

I hope you feel that your visit to my world brings a little of this back to you !

This shop is in great honor of my dearest mum (who you can half see in all her glorious youth on my banner) who passed away too early in 2009. She was also my best friend and I will always admire the powerful yet gentle inner strength and courage she carried with her all her life Je t'aime Maman.
