My new-to-me $10 ottoman. Here's what it looks like in it's new home.
I'm Ann Marie, a wife and mother of 3 wonderful and beautiful daughters. I’ve been married since 1978. I’m a custom seamstress- I love the creativity of whipping together custom linens and window treatments for clients. We’ve recently moved to an older home half the size of the newer home we were living in. This little cottage was built in 1951 and we love her. This blog will document our journey over the last 2 years of what we started with and where we are now. It has truly been a labor of love. We have done almost all of the work on this house ourselves.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do!
