First and foremost I am a wife and mother. I consider my family my greatest blessing! I am a major thrifter. I love the thrill of the hunt for that unique piece as much as I enjoy taking something discarded and making it beautiful. It's an addiction. I can't help always having a project (or two) in the works. I enjoy the inspiration that comes from other blogs.
We bought our home in central Washinton 12 years ago as she was going into forclosure. She wasn't pretty but the price was right. Although she had lime green paint, an orange roof, and a large wheel chair ramp that covered the front steps we could see her potential! She has good bones and is on a double lot. With lots of sweat equity she is now the home she was meant to be. We spent the summer of 2009 building a 1300 sq. ft. addition in back. It has been fun to furnish with my thrifty finds.
