About Me

A story about my life.  My love of decorating and sharing easy crafts.

Welcome to Cloches & Lavender, my name is Cindy.

I’m a born and raised Jersey Girl.

Making our house a home is my passion.  Marrying my best friend who also enjoys being my handyman has been the best thing in my life.

We have two mini-Dachshunds named Reeses & Peanut. They keep us on our toes and make us laugh out loud every day. We are truly blessed.

I have had MS for at least 26 years. At times it’s been a challenge. Now I am on a new biologic and my health has improved. I need the help of a walker but it’s my friend and helps me do the things I enjoy.

Especially painting furniture or updating pieces I already own to fit in our home decor.

I enjoy crafting especially making seasonal wreaths. I also enjoy adding natural elements to seasonal decorating.

I find the food market is your best friend for seasonal decorating too. The options are cozy and budget friendly especially for the holidays.

I mix rustic and elegant touches to add warmth and character to our home. I love all things French however, keeping it comfy and not stuffy is a must!

We enjoy all four seasons in NJ. However, cooler months are my favorite. I enjoy having fires, cooking comfort food and baking.

Even though the cooler months are my favorite, spring brings lovely Daffodils to our yard.

And summer brings Hydrangeas too one of my favorites!
