Home Renovations

When you think of what you did during the 2020 Pandemic, what is the first thing you think of? For me it is renovations and like almost everyone else during the pandemic, we used this time to do major home renovations. Since we didn’t have our wedding, we spent what would have been our honeymoon ripping apart our house and starting the process. That is when the fun began. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves in to- we had an idea of what home renovations would be like, but we had no formal plan set.

About Us

PetitsBijouxTO was started in 2015 by us, Josie and Evonna. We met working part time while finishing school, and little did we know how our friendship would bloom and what would come from it. We decided to start a small business together and PetitsBijouxTO was born. Our lives were a lot different back then- we were both single and starting our careers in Human Resources. Our small business began flourishing but so did our personal lives. Unfortunately, as life took over we decided to hit pause on our little business. Fast forward to 2020, things are a little different. Josie, now married a few years, welcomed her beautiful baby boy Matteo, May of 2020, right in the thick of the...
