About me

Gender Female
Occupation I'm on a journey discovering my creative side! I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, friend.
Location New Zealand
Introduction I am a Francophile and enjoy all things french. Travelling and spending time in France where my grandchildren live. I like to visit brocantes and collect lace and lovely old linens, when I'm there.
Interests I'm passionate about textiles, faded florals, Toile de Jouy, rich damasks, braids and edgings. Embroidery has got under my skin. Love to collect old postcards, letters, buttons and lace. I can easily lose myself in art galleries, libraries and book shops. Music, art and creating are the food for my soul. I love interiors, cooking, gardening, heritage roses, movies, music, art, books, reading and walking every day.
