Est. Jan 2010, this blog is a personal journal about intentional ways of trying to live a lovely life. Crafting a lovely home, using DIY to be thrifty and unique, eating yummy foods, investing in people, and caring about things that matter (and occasionally things that don't). Posts catalog my mismatched style of rustic feminine, soft and simple with a splash of vintage quirky—along with posting about people or projects that inspire me as well. Join me in this adventure called life, and hopefully you'll be inspired to make small decisions that make a difference.
Currently pursuing a career in photo & environment styling, I also spend time as a freelance designer, blog author, non-profit volunteer, quasi-florist, and wannabe domestic homemaker. I make my home in St. Louis and my days are spent making, finding and combining pretty things. I love all things creative and am determined to find value in the small, mundane and delicate details of life—despite living in a world full of all things superficial and negative. I believe that choices in life have eternal weight. I want to be intentional and strive to expand the good & lovely in this world.
I'd love to meet you! So feel free to drop me a line.
