I studied arts and interior design, I have worked as a special effects expert for cinema, and after having children I worked as an art teacher. Now enjoying retirement :)

I love arranging and designing things for my home and take every opportunity to see other homes (not only the home decor magazines, I also enjoy taking walks in the evenings to see the lights and curtains on people's windows...)

My daughter also has a shop on etsy, she sells blankets at handKnitBlankets
