After moving from Texas to New York, my husband (John) and I decided to buy a “fixer upper”. “Oh, it will be a real estate investment”, we rationalized. We both love the satisfaction of creating things by hand (especially my husband John who is a construction manager). Throughout college I taught myself to crochet, sew and was always refinishing some type of furniture. I’m also a dietitian and love to cook. I hope to share some of my recipes with you too!
Over the past few years I feel as though we have repurposed, reused, and remade a lot of things for the house! I figured why not share what we’ve done and will create along the way. Thanks for visiting and I hope our blog inspires you to be more creative in your own home! This is how we’ve made our house a home.
