I sew, collect, craft, quilt, and embroider! I am the only daughter of an only daughter of an only daughter ~ going back seven generations ~ and every one of them was a craftswoman; every one, a collector.
As an antique collector and a quilter and a paper-smith, my interests are wonderfully diverse!
My Le Petit Poulailler shop is filled with things I collect and things I love - perfect for gifting, lovely for your home, inspirational for your art! I love a good treasure hunt and special requests - if there is something special you are searching for, let me know and I *know* I will find it for you!
When the fabric bug bites me, I create beautiful miniature and sampler quilts, classic handkerchiefs, purses, totes, sachets, and bags in beautiful reproduction and designer fabrics - you will find these in my Three French Hens shop - it is where I pursue that ever elusive Perfect Seam!
And for those times when I am not out estate sale hunting, sewing, or quilting, I adore playing and creating with my fantastic collection of antique and vintage papers, prints, and designs.
I draw creative inspiration from a tremendous collection of original Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian and Regency engravings, prints, and chromolithographs as well as from a glorious *stack* of quilts and embroidery dating to the turn of the last century left to me by my mother and grandmother.
Everything is created, packed, and shipped from my smokeless, pet-friendly home here along the beautiful Jersey Shore!
