A little about me… where do I start.
Growing up a small town girl, I used to go to the local auction mart with my Grandpa. He would buy most anything that he thought was a good deal and heaven’s forbid he ever throw anything away that might be useful down the road. Those days at those auction’s certainly rubbed off on me as I grew up I started to collect salvaged and antique items of my own. Few things are more fun to me than spending my Saturday’s hunting garage sales and stopping at second hand stores to find that diamond in the rough. I loved to be surrounded by beautiful things, but could never afford the big price tag so I would just find it or make it myself.
I was lucky to get to travel the world for a few years while living in the big city but have now come back to my roots small town roots. I’m a stay at home mommy to two crazy cute kids, wife to my favorite person in the world (who also happens to be my high school sweetheart), crafter and somewhat a bit of a stubbon perfectionist. I recently went back to school for Interior Design so I guess now I can tag that to the list! I love the color white, champagne, salvaged anything and almond milk lattes with a splash of cinnamon!
My passion is to bring you decor inspiration and easy DIY’s that will allow you to create warm and inviting spaces. From refinishing old furnishings to some of my favourite foods, I try to help you bring the ‘little details’ that I use to make my house a home.
I have been refinishing furniture since 2005 and blogging on and off since about the same time. I recently decided to partner up with a talented friend and together we are Lilac & Linen Interiors! The rest of it has all just fallen into place after that. I LOVE what I do and thanks so much for visiting my lil’site.
