I’m French. I’m American. I’m a 30-something vegan punk-rocker, part-academic, part-athlete, avid runner, yogini and neophite chef. I live in France with Monsieur Fish and Guppy.

In the past couple of years I have developed an obsession with all that is fabric related, though I was never into art, sewing or crafts as a child. I am a former classically-trained dancer, and dabbled quite a bit in writing (fiction, free-lance and editing) and music, so I feel like this new thrist for creation is a natural extension of my creative side.

I’m still very much a novice seamstress, and I’m itching to learn to knit and crochet like mad (anyone in the Paris area who would like to teach me?). I’m also very interested in print making, though I still haven’t taken the plunge.

Have a burning question or want to tell me how cool you think my blog is? (Ha!) Drop me a line at fishbowlmusings (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter I’m TheShellyfish .

  2. Hey there Shellyfish! I have just discovered your blog by way of tahinitoo and I think it is so cute! Omg, I am going to be visiting France in March, are you around the Paris area? I would love to pick your brain about the best veg spots there!

    • Hi There!

      I would love to help you find some great vegan eats while you’re in France! I no longer live in Paris (though I did) but I live very close, about 40 minutes away, and still visit Paris often. Do you know where you’ll be staying? Tell me what arroundisment you’ll be in (the last two digits of the zip code) and I can try to help!

      Bisous, Shel

  3. hey seems like we have something in common vegan blogger with a French husband. Do you find it difficult finding special products for vegans in France? Let me know

  4. Thanks for your visits, Shellyfish! Like Erin, I am so glad I discovered your blog and added it right away to my Netvibes. I would love to post a WIP but would prefer not to post craft pictures in my foodblogs. Any other way to participate ?

  5. Hi! Hilda from Saffron & Blueberry sent me your way. I have a food blog http://lifesafeast.blogspot.com and she saw that I have been looking for decadent chocolate desserts for a friend who is both allergic to wheat (no flour) and dairy (no butter, cream or milk). Any ideas? I have a couple but could use more.
    By the way, I am an American (former milliner) married to a French guy living in Nantes. Yay!

  6. Hello Shellyfish
    You have won my 200th post giveaway and I cannot seem to find an email contact. Can you please reply to this so that we can discuss your mailing details. You can delete this comment if you need to. I just needed to get in contact and it seemed the best option. Cheers. Have a great day

  7. Hi Shelly, I’ve seen you around in the blogsphere and I like your style. 🙂

    I’m so impressed to find a vegan in France. Well, I guess I’m also an uncommon vegetarian expat in the world’s steak capital. Funny thing is that it doesn’t both Argentines as much as it does Americans.

    Take care et au revoir~

  8. Merci pour ton commentaire de Bienvenue. J’apprecie beaucoup. Have fun to make the challenge ! Je pense que nous allons bien toutes et tous nous amuser dans ce challenge.
