How it all began...

I have been involved in the Interior Design Home Decor world for the last 20 years but really crafting and designing has been my first love since I was a child. I grew up on a small working Eastern Ontario farm, where we gardened, antiqued and renovated as a family.

When I moved to the big city I studied art cooking and design whenever I could while still maintaining my then starving artist apartment. Later I was lucky to apprentice with different contractors, visual artists and tradespeople to acquire many of the design management skills I have today.

I had my first daughter in the early 90s and was newly married so I needed to think of a way that I could work from home while taking care of her. It was then I started to sell my handmade pillows, bedding, rehabbed furniture, designer fabrics and vintage items online in in different décor boutiques.

Two more beautiful children later I decided to open my design firm in downtown Toronto. I consider myself fortunate to have designed and renovated for some of the city’s most prestigious and even famous clientele but they weren’t the only people I served, I also loved to sell many of my designer items and antique finds at a lower than standard retail prices so supplied for other designers as well.

I was quintessentially regarded as the “accessible couturier”.

After many happy years there I decided to scale down the business. I had become so busy that there was very little quality time available and I still had a growing family. My husband suggested that I eventually work from home since that is where I did most of my best work and he was right. I continued to design for clients and manage builds while having more quality time for my family and I am so glad to have made that change.

Now I am in a beautiful lakeside town, creating a website, and I am just getting started here on Etsy and I have to say that I just love it! I love the likeminded community of artists and creators and I honestly wondered what I did with my time before Etsy.

It is so rewarding working with vintage items and antiques and translating them into traditional and country décor and up-cycling when I can, I hope to supply and inspire with my many unique collectibles and estate finds.

Shipping Response Time

I strive to guarantee consistent quick and efficient shipping at the best price I can afford to offer as a small independent seller. I have selected a 3 to 5 day processing window as my standard response time but usually can send things out faster depending on the season that being said if you have special requirements please send me a message and I will do my best to make things work for you.

Shipping Cost & Materials

I believe in reusing shipping materials whenever possible it cuts down on cost and is best for the environment. I use recycled brown padded envelopes for shipping postcards and I reuse boxes and foam popcorn for breakable items.
