Hello!

My name is Lisa and this is my husband, Peter. We are empty-nesters and recently moved from New Hampshire - where we lived and pastored for 18 years - to Frederick, MD.  

Here are a few things about us:

  • We like to travel and our greatest joy is encouraging other pastors/leaders in our District.  You will see on my stories on IG that we often travel to a different state/city each week with my husband's job.
  • We purchased a bank owned fixer-upper last year and turned it into an Airbnb. We call it: Our Uptown Cottage since it's a mile from the downtown streets of Frederick.  (Check out the before/after pics under Airbnb!)
  • We are foodies and love exploring new places to eat!
  • Along with that...we both love coffee!
  • Peter is the risk taker and Lisa likes to play it safe.  We are a good team as we balance each other!
  • Both of us enjoy seeing transformations- in people (first and foremost) and in things that are discarded (like furniture and homes).  Our passion is seeing the forgotten and neglected come to life!
  • Lisa's style is simple and her motto is: thrifty decorating is fun! In fact, one of her favorite places to shop is the local Goodwill.


I hope to inspire you with what I've learned (and am continuing to learn) about decorating!

Thanks for stopping by!
