Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.  Come on in and wander around for a doodle of fun, faith, and furniture. You’ll find thrifty treasures and how to decorate your home [without spending a fortune].  Laugh and learn from my many diy goof-ups, so you don’t have to make the same mistakes. Be reminded of God’s grace through stories of His sweet whispers.

I recently discovered I’m gluten-intolerant, so I may share a gluten-free recipe now and then as I learn new ways to enjoy the things I once loved to eat.

Hubby Richard & I have moved many times in our [several] years together, so my opportunities to decorate our home have been numerous.  We currently live in the burbs of Atlanta. I’m glad to be back in my home state, but I know this won’t be our last move. My dream is a mountain home on some acreage with a creek and ideally, a waterfall- sounds like heaven on earth!

UPDATE: Yep, we’ve moved again, now in South Carolina- here we go again!

We have 2 grown children, Melissa and Michael, both living in different states.

Some of my favorite things:

  • In case you haven’t guessed, my favorite color is purple.
  • An ideal day is a good book, some chocolate, a snuggly blanket, and the sound of rain outside my window.
  • Fall is my favorite time of year- cool weather, beautiful leaves, no bugs- what’s not to love?! 

I hope you’ll stick around- you’ve found a new friend! And hopefully, you’ll find encouragement, inspiration, and laughter.
