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.
