Hi! My name is Heidi, I live in the suburbs of Chicago with my husband (Scott), son (Casey), and daughter (Lainey).

My best friend asked me the other day what the point of having a blog was and I struggled at first to explain it. Then it hit me. Do you watch HGTV and DIY network incessantly? Do you get excited about Crate and Barrel or Pottery Barn catalogs coming in the mail? Do you look at realestate.com just for fun? I do!! So when I discovered the world of home blogging and realized that I could actually choose exactly what I felt like looking at or dreaming about at any given moment I was hooked, line and sinker :) So I started my blog to give any inspiration or information I could to others out there who are just like me! 

My main passion is making over furniture, but I also have lots of fun with crafts, cooking, sewing, and of course just spending time with my family! 

If you live in the Chicagoland area and have a piece of furniture you'd like painted or stained visit my contacts page and send me an email, I'd love to hear from you!!

Thanks for visiting and have a joyful day!
