I’m Wendy, a homemaker who loves decorating, gardening, cooking, and crafting. I’m passionate about bringing beautiful elements together to create a comfortable and inspiring space. I’m a seasoned homemaker with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and I’m here to help you with all of your homemaking needs.
I’ve been a creative type ever since I was a child. I grew up in rural Pennsylvania, where I would go “foraging” in the woods with my mother and grandmother for natural treasures we could use for decorating and cooking. My mother was a floral designer, so we always had fresh-cut flowers from the garden around the house. But she did much more to create a warm and inviting home atmosphere. She loved baking, and I can still remember coming home to the aroma of freshly baked cookies.
My mother’s love of homemaking inspired me to follow my dreams of a career in design. For many years, I’ve designed handbags and seasonal gift programs for major retailers. It’s a career that has taken me worldwide, searching for beautiful and unique design elements.
Now, I’m enjoying what I love: my husband, four children, six grandchildren, and two playful springer spaniels. I’ve started this blog to share my love of homemaking with others. I hope you’ll find inspiration and encouragement here!
I love interacting with my readers! I’m always available through email and social media to answer your questions and offer support.

Meet My Husband David…
I have to tell you a secret………. I may make everything look good, but this guy makes everything taste good! David is an amazing cook, and we have so much fun in the kitchen together, I am the taster, sous chef, and occasionally the dishwasher 🙂
Since David retired, and I continue to work, he became the chef in the house, and I am very well-fed.
We have been married for over 37 years, raised 4 children, and we now have 4 grandchildren. We share many of the same interests such as pickle ball, bike riding, attending church, traveling, and dining out and truly love doing life together.
David and I also love to entertain, we collaborate together to create a true experience for our guests. I create the atmosphere, set the tables, and decorate, and David whips up an amazing meal. We worked together this past summer and created a fantastic pop-up restaurant right in our own backyard.
David also has an amazing sense of humor, and I am sure you will enjoy it when he pops in to collaborate with me as he is sure to make you laugh.
Where it all began
When I walked into our house for the first time, I fell in love with the home’s charm and character. Built in 1898, every detail of the home was filled with nostalgia and craftsmanship; From that moment on, I used my love for decorating, gardening, and creating a welcoming atmosphere to bring life to our home. We’ve since enjoyed many wonderful years spent indoors by the fireplace or outside tending to the garden. It’s genuinely been a sanctuary for myself and my family – a place where we can all come together regardless of what is happening in the outside world.
