I am honored that you have stopped by to visit, “A Touch of Décor .”
This site is my new baby….I’m a complete newbie to blogging. In fact, I’m actually jumping out of my comfort zone!!!!
Let me introduce myself: At heart, I’m a country girl….. I loved growing up in a small Quebec ski resort town, loved being a tom boy and was fortunate to have had a wonderful childhood. My first love has always been, horses. Both of my horses, Tocatina and Tamasina were the greatest of teachers, as well as my beloved best friends. Horses teach respect, love and always prepare you for the unexpected…what great lessons to learn at a young age!!!!!
I consider myself lucky to have thoroughly enjoyed my thirty-five year long career as a Special Education Teacher. My students were on many an occasion, my teachers; I learned a considerable amount from their lives and struggles.
For as long as I can remember, my love of making things beautiful has been integral to my core upbringing. My mom, herself a model at a young age, always….and I mean always, looked like she popped off the cover of Vogue…she loved making our home beautiful!
It is my firm belief that any space can be made to feel special, cozy and beautiful! Good taste does not necessarily translate into the need for spending an inordinate amount of money. A creative eye can think outside of the box… fortunately, that’s my talent!! However, feeling that it was a requirement to learn the design trade, I returned to school as an adult and earned the necessary credentials!! As well, this past spring I participated in the ”Specify Color With Confidence ” workshop presented by the talented, “True Color Expert,” Maria Killam! This training has truly refined how I see and now analyze the use of color.
Toffeedoodle………the “Shepadoodle,” is my constant companion; you will become familiar with him as he is never far from my side.
Stop by and explore the site frequently….. it’s my intention to explore the infinite number of ways one can bring beauty into our homes and lives !!!
I am excited about this new adventure!!!
