Hello, welcome to my corner of the internet. My name is Monica Jones and I am an artist and musician interested in home design, fashion, art, music and much more. Join me on this blog where I talk about home renovations and home design, where I share furniture refinishing projects, vintage items and handmade things.

You may remember me, I used to make leather handbags under the name: Barbara + Cecile Handbags. However I’ve been evolving lately to also include vintage and up-cycled home decor, furniture and some woman’s wear. I have some pieces for sale online as well as in the basement of Old House Revival in Winnipeg, MB @ 324 Young Street. I am still taking custom orders for handmade bags and repurposing leather and suede jackets so please contact me if you’d like more information on that: barbaraandcecile@gmail.com

I’ve also recently moved into a bit of a fixer upper home and have been designing and decorating this home and posting about it on instagram. This blog will be a place where I can go into more detail on those topics.

And last but not least I am also a musician: jazz saxophone and vocals. So I may share about that topic as well here.

Thanks for stopping by!
