Hello, Hola, Bonjour! I’m a vintage soul, who’s married to my honey, aka Mr. M., who made all my dreams come true. He made me a wife, he made me a mother and he makes me laugh each & every day. My life revolves around my family & my home and on this blog I share all the pieces of this wonderful life. I love all things that are weathered, tattered, tarnished, rusted, faded, shabby, & distressed because they have a story to tell. Here- I tell my story, which includes my love for home decor, gardening, entertaining, cooking, traveling, crafting and anything that makes life pretty, fun & interesting. Welcome & thanks for visiting. XO
