I was born and raised in Phoenix Az, I relocated to northern California 5 years ago. I enjoy the outdoors (but better in the winter/springtime) treasure hunting, painting, decorating, making the Old new again. I have been on a life long journey to find out what my passion is, what was I meant to do. I have been an insurance agent, real estate agent, bank teller, tax preparer, bookkeeper, secretary, detention officer, retail clerk, etc, you name it, I’ve probably done it. I wish sometime I could have had a more straight path to finding what I love, but better late than never.
What I do know now is that I love Art, creating, repurposing, decorating, painting, styling, restyling, and Redesigning all things for Home & Life. Re-purposing and painting furniture gives me such pleasure and of course saves money. I am a bargain hunter @ Heart!
From my earliest memories, my grandmother was taking me to every flea market, yard sale, and estate sale that she could find. She had a knack for finding that hidden treasure and breathing life back into it. She was a “picker” before picking became popular!
I love and collect many things especially antique religious relics, vintage French books, religious crowns, mannequins, French statues and busts, and just about anything else that is vintage French! I love Annie Sloan chalk paint and burlap! French, Shabby, French Nordic, Swedish, and Country Cottage décor!
I also love architecture, in the past I have bought, redesigned and flipped properties, it had it’s challenges but was truly what I loved doing. I may venture in that direction again in the future, I never know where this life is going to take me..
I enjoy all styles in my own home and tend to mix them together, my favorites are a mix of vintage-chic, rustic elements, mid-century modern with a bit of sparkle for the ohhlala. My favorite place to be is “home”, and what I love most is spending time with my husband, daughter, granddaughter, and dear friends.
I am passionate about supporting people who want to lead a happier and more meaningful life. What I hope to do is inspire you to have the courage to live your life the way you want, to have faith that anything is possible, and to believe you can do what you have always dreamt of!
As of today I am still on my journey of Redesigning Home & Life!
