Hi there!  My name is Carli.  I have a passion for home decor and interior design, however my budget doesn't always allow for such passions, so----I DIY!  One of my favorite sayings is --- "Necessity is the mother of all inventions!"

I am married to my high school sweetheart and together we have 4 kids.  We've lived in our newer construction, New England "starter home" for 12 years, where we've made lots of changes to suit our style.  I believe that your home is your refuge-a space that is welcoming and calm.  I tend to decorate on the neutral side as my desire to switch things up creeps up quite often.
I've recently returned to work full time and am learning to balance work and home:  it ain't easy :).  My blog is my outlet-where I love to share the projects I'm working on with my friends, yes, you too! I am extremely resourceful, so my favorite thing to do is to challenge myself to re-purpose or recycle things to make them new and useful again.  You can find me in a thrift store at least once a week.  I love to shop, but most of all, I enjoy a good bargain.  Follow me as I find new ways to fall in love with my humble Rhode Island home, over and over again, and hopefully you'll find some inspiration along the way!!!
