My name is Lisa. My husband and I are empty-nesters and recently moved from New Hampshire - where we lived for 18 years - to Frederick, MD.  In the process of looking for houses, we were searching for an older home that we could fix up along the way. We love old homes filled with beautiful charm and character!  Well, we ended up purchasing a brand spankin' new home...completely opposite of what we were looking for! Ha! So now....we're adding old cottage charm to our NEW home. :-)

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice that I enjoy seeing how furniture can be transformed with just a little paint, time and an eye to see potential. In fact, I will paint anything that is standing still - so be careful! I also love staging homes by moving furniture around and creating cozy spaces. My style is simple and my motto is thrifty decorating is fun! In fact, one of my favorite places to shop is our local Goodwill! 

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

Thanks for stopping by!


My Family Knows Me!

We moved from snowy New Hampshire to mild Maryland. Talk about culture shock! I'm not kidding when I say that I needed to take some time to transition. I think you will understand me when I share that moving can be tough and making new friends in a new area is not easy.  That's why I'm so grateful for social media and all of the new friends that I've made through this platform. I've adjusted quite a bit and have chosen to accept this season of life with a joyful perspective.  Now, we just need to find a dog! The kids keep bugging me about that one, ha! (Although, they're not home to help me care for it so it's easy for them to say this!) Thanks, again,  for all of your wonderful support!
