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 my family.

The best husband and daddy, five boys who look just like him, and plenty of chaos to go around. We're a homeschooling, crafting, camping kind of bunch. Always remembering our ultimate goal is raising boys who love Jesus. Everything else is extra.

This is our house.

After living in a tiny (and cold!) 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 (you can find it all back in the blog archives). Then in early 2016, we said "goodbye" to the little house we loved and "hello" 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. We learned that home really is where your heart (and family) is, and we've grown to love calling this place our home.

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, little brother antics, and even a recipe or two.
