New Blog Theme
Hey Y’all, did you notice anything different?
You may have noticed that I was absent for a few days at the beginning of the year.
I’ve been working really hard to make my blog more user friendly.
I’ve completely changed the appearance and eliminated all I can.
I hope you like the changes.
I have been writing this blog for two years and I want to thank you for being on this journey with me. Without your words of encouragement, I wouldn’t be able to do this.
The past two years have been so amazing. I’ve learned so much. Just when I think I’ve mastered this blogging thing, I realize I’ve still got so much more to learn.
I love sharing my ideas and my passion for decorating, diy and entertaining with you. Therefore, I’m trying to learn as much as I can to make your experience enjoyable.
Word of the Year – Authentic
Do you pick a word of the year? I like to pick one word to help me focus and stay on track!
This is my word for the year. AUTHENTIC
It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing or telling you that you should be doing.
Then you realize you are not being true to your authentic self.
My goal for this year is to write and share what I love, what makes me happy.
I feel that if I’m sharing my passion instead of what someone else expects me to share, I’ll be happier and that will shine through. Hopefully, it will make you, my readers happy as well.
What is my passion? I love creating a unique home that is full of vintage and diy projects. An eclectic, curated home that doesn’t feel like a showroom but a collection of well loved pieces that work beautifully together.
I’m a trash to treasure enthusiast, who takes pride in finding a roadside piece of junk and turning it into a treasured piece of home decor.
I’m fortunate to be part of Thrifting with the Gals, which is a group of Instagram friends and bloggers who share a passion for vintage & thrifted decor. We share our adventures on Instagram stories weekly and the third Thursday of each month we give you tips and ideas on the blog.
I love to entertain and although these past two years have been difficult, I’ve joined with some wonderful friends across the country to share a virtual Supper Club table theme. So although I’m not entertaining in person as often, I still get to set my table for you on the fourth Thursday of each month.
In addition to the table setting, we share a full menu and recipes based on the monthly theme. You will see those on the fourth Saturday of each month.
I love that my job is sharing with you, so get ready for lots of authentic inspiration in 2022.
