About Us

Hi, I'm Georgia.

I'm a full-time mom, part-time blogger, and a maker at heart. I love DIYs and thrifty finds, but my passion is turning houses into homes. I believe every house, even the one you're in right now, has the potential to become a home you love. And I believe that you can get there even on the tightest budget. So let's bring on the second-hand finds and hand-me-downs. Let's learn to love the quirkiness and "problem spaces." Let's make these houses into something more - homes that serves our families right where we're at.

This blog is my place to share my joy and passions, and hopefully help you discover the home you've been dreaming of along the way. Thanks for visiting!

This is our family.

Four boys, one super husband/daddy, and plenty of chaos to go around. We're a homeschooling, crafting, camping kind of bunch. Always remembering our ultimate goal is heaven, and raising boys who love Jesus. Everything else is extra.

This is our house.
We painted it ourselves - one of our most extensive DIY's ever!

After living in a rental for three years, we dove into home ownership in fall 2010. We bought a little 1200 sq ft Cape Cod with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, an open living area, and a grassy backyard. It was the perfect place to start our family. Over the next five years we made it our own and grew from a family of two to a family of five. Then in early 2016 we said "goodbye" to the little house we loved and welcomed new adventures - a new house, a new state, and a new baby! We found an old farmhouse with two beautiful acres, extra bedrooms, and big windows. I couldn't imagine a better place for our family to call home.

And this is our blog.

I do the writing, but it's the story of all of us and the home we're building together. You might find home improvement projects, thrifty finds, homemaking tips, camper van adventures, or little brother antics.
