About Me

" As with most British people, my love of tea is a lifelong affair."

I was born on the Isle of Man which is a tiny independent island in the middle of the Irish Sea, equidistant between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. I grew up in my parents’ hotel located in the capital Douglas, and earlier in Onchan, a close suburb where it was expected that my siblings and I would pitch in with the day to day running of the hotel during the opening season. This was definitely good training for me!!

As a young woman, I came to Canada where later I rediscovered my love for all things vintage and pretty including fine china, beautiful linens, polished silverware, and of course Tea Parties!!  With Tealightful, I will share an authentic experience where time stands still and the senses are filled with beauty, peace and tranquillity.

I hope you will join me on this new journey where I can be myself and follow my heart.

Thank you!
