I am a 50 something empty nester that is still trying to figure out what I am going to be when I grow up.  I’ve raised two amazing human beings, have three step kids (adults) that are multiplying rapidly and a job that I love in the home décor industry.  I am a bit of a wino (seriously what goes better with Pinterest stalking than a glass of wine?).  A lover of a GREAT last minute DIY (Is Home Depot still open??), and have been known to swoon at my local Home Goods store (my scores are LEGENDARY).  My design philosophy is mixing high with low, old and new and always adding an element of QUIRK. My best design advice is to always surround yourself with what you LOVE! This blog is a way to share some of the things that are unfolding in my life right now.  My husband and I have slowly been  updating our 50's ranch style home, have recently become first-time landlords and bought a home on a lake which we hope to retire to one day.  Which gives me SO MUCH nesting to do!  Follow me here to see how it all unfolds.
