About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the world!

I'm a late 30's aged gal, from SC. I live with my husband, two daughters and one old four-legged gal. I love to knit, sew, quilt, decorate (and redecorate) my home. 

As far as crafting goes, I'm a late bloomer. I didn't get bitten by the crafting bug until I was 25. My first crafting adventures involved painting flower pots. After a friend taught me how to knit back in 2002, I pushed on and never looked back!

Several years ago, I fell in love with thrifting and upcycling. This is how my blog was born. I was buying so many things, and doing makeovers on them, that I didn't have the space to keep them. It was then that I decided to open an Etsy shop for my Shabby Chic and Flea Market style home decor items. 

Of course, you can't thrift and not buy vintage so about a year after my shop was open, I added vintage home decor and accessory items to the shop. I love to curate, and I'll collect things for months, sometimes years to create a perfect grouping, which I then use in my home or sell on Etsy.

My work has been featured on apartment therapy.com and one of their sister sites, ohdeedoh.com.
