  • Description


    I am a free spirit, living in the woods, by the river, with my family.
    We always have lots of projects going on in and around the house and garden.
    I sew, I arrange and care for my 349 house plants, restore and "pimp" furniture, amongst other things.
    I'm a makeup artist, style consultant and hairdresser. So if you're in need of a haircut, skin treatment, nails, clothing - I'm your go-to girl 😀

    My husband is a carprenter and builder who makes furniture and also build... Well just about everything that needs building and/or restoring.

    My son is an 18-year old passionate animal lover and vegan. He's got two pet rats.

    Five cats and two dogs make our family complete.

    We have a separate big old building that needs restoring, fixing the broken furnace, put some furniture together and freshening them up and redecorate the bar.
    Clearing out the attic is also a priority.

    We have a garden with flowers, herbs and vegetables that always needs looking after.
