All the time I have been blogging, I haven't given much info about myself! It's a little scary putting yourself out there. Here goes.
I am 51 years old and still can't believe it. I am one of those people that still don't know what I want to do when I grow up!
I have been married 28 years, have a daughter that will be turning 21 shortly, I have two sisters, 1 half brother and a step brother and sister.
I have one parent still living, my father. My mom passed away in 2013 and I still cry every time I say that.
I started looking at magazines that had so many wonderful ideas in it when I was pregnant some 21 years ago. We had bought our house from my mother in law back in 89' and it is a two story house. We had a couch, a couple of chairs, a table and a few other things, which back then, our house was empty, lol. Like I said, I was pregnant and was bed ridden so I ended up looking thought tons of magazines.
Since we couldn't afford much at the time, our house filled with others left overs! That is how my love of fixing up things started. I didn't start yard sales until we had a baby sitter that introduced me to the wonderful yard sale experience, lol. I have never turned back.
When someone asks what my style is, I say it is yard sale chic or whatever I can find for free and fix up to make it look good! I just took a quiz on 'What's your style' and the answer was French Country, lol. Just like I said, yard sale chic :0)
I am in the midst of redoing things in this old house. There is a lot of things I like about it and a few things I hate, our downstairs bathroom is one of them. Right now I am hoping to get things changed for the better.
You will notice I am lazy and even though I love the finished look of a piece of painted furniture, I hate the process of sanding, priming, painting, lol. I just want to snap my fingers and have it done. It's the same way with our house. I am just now finding ways to afford to change things up.
Our house is home and I do not decorate like the fancy magazines you read of (even though I wish I could), I just don't have that decorating gene :0( but I try all the time.
I will get some pics put up of our house soon. Right now I have a couple of painting projects in the middle of the living room.
Another fact is I can never turn down a free piece of anything. Yes, my husband hates that. And because of this fact, every room in our house is at capacity!
Hope you will find something interesting here that catches your eye and maybe some inspiration.
I appreciate each and every one of you. Have a wonderful day!
