Romance your Home all year-round!
Several years ago, I sewed Christmas stockings using a piece of handloomed linen from the 1920's a friend had given me. This was the caprice of a moment. But when all the work and stitching and trimming were done I made ready my table for an at-home Christmas market sale - and, to my surprise, sold every piece! So now, come Christmas, with the enticing aroma of homemade scones and hot spiced wine, I hold a private sale for friends & welcomed company. I do my best to use vintage material whenever possible for my decor items so that they have an 'old world' feel, and offer whimsical shapes inspired by the past that I draw and cut myself, to bring some magic into your Home. Fall under the spell!
Later I ventured into home decor, beginning with decorative pillow cases. I enjoy taking time to choose and find the fabric: antique handloomed linen from France or Italy, then French 'toile de jouy' with crisp and fresh colours, or Swiss silk taffeta of high quality. These kinds of fabric can be expensive but a pillow or two can add a lovely touch to one's bedroom, or any room, without depleting anyone's purse. I sometimes find a unique remnant at the flea market, that I wash carefully to transform into something exquisite yet useable. Eventually I arrived at full bedding parures. A parure for me is the duvet cover (with handsewn buttons), two standard-sized pillow cases and two 16" X 16" decorative pillow shams in the same motif and/or colours as the duvet cover. I use a 100% smooth Swiss cotton percale; sometimes I find a beautiful vintage sheet that I cut and re-shape to give it new life. In fact, I make all of my own bedding - and bedding for friends, too! My favourite is 'Snow White' here featured.

Accepted payment methods
PLEASE NOTE: I will use a bubble enveloppe as opposed to a box: shipping costs from Switzerland are high, and using a box starts at a minimum of ca. USD20.00, even if the package is light. I feel you are paying for my item, not a box!
If you wish Swiss Economy Airmail (about 11-15 business days), which costs somewhat less, please let me know in advance.
If you wish your package to be registered (similar to confirmed delivery, not the same as insured) please let me know in advance as the cost can be quite high. This is the only shipping method for which delivery is confirmed; for all other shipping methods I have no control once the package leaves my hands so, sadly, cannot answer for it; however please know that the Swiss postal system is excellent and very efficient, and packages do not usually get lost.
For all items I ship within two business days of receiving payment. If, for some reason, there is a delay in shipment (holiday, travelling, etc.) I will let you know promptly. I will notify you when your order has been shipped.
