In the summer of 2014, we purchased a house in the heart of Provence. It was a renovation project, which was the perfect excuse for me to buy lots of fun toys – saws, tools, and loud machines. Now that the renovations are mostly finished, I get to use those tools on more creative projects.

I now build and sell items made from reclaimed wood. I do my rounds to local businesses to pick up pallets, stack them up on our balcony, and then rip through them with my jigsaw.

My items are available for sale at the local march├Ęs in Banon and Apt, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, France. However, I am placing several items for sale on Etsy as well.
