Sharing all about our family, about us & why we started blogging…


I am a mom of four saved by grace who loves to create.

I have been rearranging furniture, doing home craft projects, collecting antiques, shopping yard sales and flea markets, & digging in the dirt since I was a very little girl.

Creating brings me so much joy, I can’t imagine being without a project to work on!

All about us - Tara & Audrey

For more than 12 years my extremely handy husband and I have been fixing up our old houses as well as helping many friends and family do the same.

I have had MANY stories to tell about us renovating these old houses way before I started blogging about it!

About Us - Tara in Kitchen

When I asked Jason to help me set it up and I started writing my first posts I didn’t tell anyone about it.  

I had wanted to start a blog for years but writing isn’t necessarily one of my “gifts” (my grammar is sometimes terrible) & taking pictures doesn’t come natural either, hi!  

About us - in the kitchen

Jason and I do however love to fix up houses and I love doing crafty projects, gardening, decorating and cooking/baking good food.

A former dance major and thrift store worker I am now a stay at home mom & blogger working part time.

You can almost always find me covered in paint, hair up in a dancer’s bun, wearing my gardening boots.

I love old houses, white paint, antiques, comfy chairs, pillows, and flowers everywhere inside and out.

(All of the pictures of me were taken by my very talented friend Judith Krasiniski.  I asked her to come take a more professional, pretty picture of me for my profile.   She came over for a little over an hour one week day last month and despite our combined 6 kids running rampant through my house she still managed to take some beautiful pictures.  Although I am sure she couldn’t have taken them quite as well without her overzealous photography assistant seen below…  You can follow her on Instagram here.)

About us - Audrey


Jason spent his summers growing up fixing up old houses with his dad who was a builder in Colorado. 

An IT professional who moonlights as a DIY guy and the most even keeled guy I have ever met. 

He refuses to buy anything he can make himself especially if it is made of wood. 

Jason has a passion to remake furniture and I have yet to see him turn down anything free.   

He is always up for going out to eat, cooking delicious food at home or saying up late to watch a movie or a marathon of TV shows with me and the kids. 

Jason loves to play sports and coaches our sons soccer and basketball teams. 

He is also extremely competitive and loves winning at board games whether he’s playing a 5 year old or 50 year old.  

Most importantly he is an incredible father and husband to the kids and I who loves God.

Please follow along with us as we renovate, decorate, garden, cook, and dance alongside our family and our crazy labradoodle in a century old farmhouse in the suburbs of Pennsylvania where we are making this house our own one DIY project at a time.  

Our blog posts have been featured at the Huffington Post, House Beautiful, Hometalk, Thrifty Décor Chick and many other popular blogs.
