She found France through antique glasses
My life started in South Africa. I was born in Pretoria and grew up in a wonderful and loving home. My father was a pastor/architect and my mother was an artist. I also have a fantastic brother who took a back seat so I got more attention.
I studied art and became an artist, even though I vowed not to. My mother's creativity sparked me on and I just had a need to make things.
Somewhere along the way, my french man came and stole me away to live in France. It was actually a very rough adjustment for me even though so many 'dream' of living in France.
I did not speak much french and 'African' art was not as popular in France as it was in South Africa so I had to find another way to earn money. Etsy came along at the perfect time and I found myself hunting for small vintage french treasures to sell. It just took off from there and I absolutely love it!
I do miss South Africa everyday and it's flavour runs though my blood but France is slowly wooing me with it's charm.

Thank you Etsy for featuring me on the french Etsy blog page!
Bonjour :) I am Hayley and I live in France. I am quite new to France so everyday I discover new ways the french live, their culture and their lifestyle. Hopefully as I discover more, it will reflect in the treasures I find and some things I make.
