Creative Domestication

Wandering through domestic life with creative flair

Welcome to my world!

Hello!  I’m Carol. I’m a country girl at heart who lives in the ‘burbs with my hubs, a sweet beagle and two nosey cats.  I love decorating, refinishing furniture, baking and gardening.  I’m a  junkaholic who loves repurposing and upcycling old trash into treasures.

Why am I blogging?  Well, I have always been a do-it-yourselfer and I found that I would get many questions from friends and family about cooking, crafting, DIY, etc.  I had often thought of doing something with my crafts and ideas but had never pushed myself to go through with it.

Not long ago, I saw the quote “You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream” by C. S. Lewis.  That one quote hit me like nothing else had.    Now, I finally felt excited to try something new and go for my dream!  I certainly had nothing to lose.

So, here I am, living my dream in the ‘burbs with my sweet hubs and doing what I love.  I hope I can inspire you to cook a new dish, make a craft, decorate your home, or save some money with a little laughter scattered along the way.

Please join me as I cook, paint, decorate and garden with a frugal mind and a creative heart.
