Thank you for visiting my blog. I am an animal loving, nature loving, vintage and handcrafts loving girl- living in London.
My friends describe me as a fun-loving, positive, cheeky girl, who adores dancing and making them handmade gifts that include interior deco pieces, soft furnishings among other goodies.
I started Jijjy’s Maison Blog in 2011 to share all my vintage / antiquey finds, handcrafts and fun vintage upcycle projects.
Growing up I loved my grandmother’s glamour, pretty vintage cutlery, fashion and interior style. Through this my love for vintage was born.
Despite my banking & finance background I hankered to be creative and make things beautiful.
Apart from the nostalgia and beauty of vintage, I also believe it is a fun, stylish and creative way to recycle and protecting our environment.
I love Axel Vervoordt thinking – as a creator, collector, artist & interior designer; he says 21st century is for spiritual rest and recuperation. He likes to find things that are forgotten and give it new life. In addition, there is not more space for new things, he loves taking unwanted and existing things and makes them new and beautiful again.
Have a look at my Upcycling treats.
Jijjy’s Maison blog is about, me sharing my journey, exploring vintage and antiques, Upcycling and handmaking vintage inspired interior accessories. I also explore interior design trends.
Hoping that I succeed in inspiring you whatever your passions.
