I am a wife and mommy. I work in higher education and love all things thrifty from saving on decorating, clothing and household items. Over the years I have been on path to simplify my life while pursuing the things I love most and have been successful at doing just that.
My favorite things are my family, friends, and my work. My favorite pastimes are searching for secondhand items to give and new life and making things myself. I love the challenge of finding a piece of junk and turning it into something usable again. My love of turning trash-to-treasure is inherited from my father. My Dad (aka Salvage Doc) can turn any piece of old furniture into a beautiful piece of art. Through this blog, I hope to inspire others to find ways to reuse, repurpose and upcycle furniture, clothes and fabric as well as making some new items forcing me to become more creative with my finds all while living on a budget.
