About Carrie

Hi Everyone…my name is Carrie.

I’m a wife and mom to a 9 year old daughter and 3 year old son. I have a background in international marketing and textbook publishing, but when my precious daughter was born in 2002, I left it all behind. Now my days are filled with homework, driving to dance, playing Batman and cooking up easy family meals. When I’m not being ‘mommy’, you can usually find me taking pictures, painting something, or searching thrift stores for furniture. My love for vintage pieces has always been there, and I feel I’ve always been an old soul. Over the past few years, I’ve completely transformed my home from the ‘normal Texas home décor’ to an airy and vintage charmer that I love coming home too. Finding unique ways to refresh furniture and design crafts is my passion and somewhat of my obsession. It’s hard for me to look at something and buy it. I always tell myself “I can make that!” And in most cases, I do. My garage is proof…it is a disaster most of the time and I love it. I adore my husband, cherish my children, and love a good can of paint!

    Hey I was searching benches and came across a picture of a black and white stripped bench that looked very familiar…the blog looks great! Congrats!

    Before you do anything to change your home decor – whether it’s just one room or the entire house, ask yourself (and others in your family, if it’s a group decision), what do you want to accomplish. Is it just to get a fresh look with a new color on the walls, or is it to really throw out the old and start all over again? If it’s a new wall color you’re considering, make sure the paint you purchase will compliment your existing furnishings. Don’t rush out to your nearest home supply store and purchase a can of paint because it’s on sale or your think the color will do. Get several paint swatches and bring them home.^-.”
