About

I was born on the island of Guadeloupe in the French West Indies. However at a young age of 7, my father decided to see the world and we left for Quebec, Canada where I grew up. Later I moved to Florida and met my wonderful husband. The rest, well that's another story!

I have always enjoyed working with my hands and see the fruits of my labor. My mother taught me, her mother taught her, and so on. Creating is relaxing to me, be it a shell mirror for my bathroom, a mosaic coffee table for the living room, a pretty dress for a wedding, a crochet doily for my bed pillow, sponge painting my bedroom walls or refinishing a beautiful wooden dresser found at a flea market; I love to express myself.

I especially like to bring back momentos from my trips to places and countries I visit: chocolates and tea towels from France, coconut carved wooden serving spoons from the Caribbean, or Molas from Panama. Useful momentos I use in everyday items, reminding me of the wonderful moments spent in new places. It is amazing to see what people can create in their environment.

Life is a wonderful adventure and I am a romantic. I surprise myself daydreaming of the places I have been and would love to share with you. In my shop, you will find lots of surprises and you’ll never know what you will find. Come back often and see what’s in store!

Née en Guadeloupe mais élevée au Québec, je suis revenue dans les tropics ou j'ai rencontrée l'amour de ma vie et le reste est un autre recit.

J'ai toujours été assez habile de mes mains. Je suppose que cela vient de Maman et de Mamie. Elles sont toujours a travailler de leurs mains et m'ont beaucoup appris. J'adore aussi ramener des objects de mes voyages: cuiellères de coco des Antilles, Molas du Panama, chocolats et petites serviettes brodés de France... Momentos qui sont aussi jolis que pratiques. Et en les utilisants tout les jours, cela me rappelle de bon souvenirs.

J'espere que vous vous plairez dans ma petite boutique. Revenez souvent et voyez les petites surprises qui vous attendent.
