Hi! I'm Ashley

I'm a wife and mother.  I have four children under ten, and I've spent the last ten years as a stay-at-home-mom.  In 2016 we traded in our new construction home (out in the burbs) for a 160 year-old fixer upper, closer to the city. We've been restoring and renovating ever since, and this is where I share our restoration journey, design and decor ideas, thrifty finds, and my favorite things.  I'm an old home lover, but I'm also just a mom, who enjoys sharing all things lifestyle related.

It’s another historic home and so photogenic. Ashley has decorated it beautifully and it feels and looks so inviting and welcoming. She has a blog too, so check it out as well."
