I restore boring/neglected furniture and create home decor and personal accessories from new and repurposed items. All while being a full time mom to two toddler boys and learning to be a "housewife" after leaving a demanding 10-year career in banking management.

My blog primarily focuses on my life of raising family and crafting. I do a lot of both. I like to share ideas and techniques of the projects I'm working on in hopes that others pick up the knitting needles, or start sewing, or making things out of clay, etc....more
GirlWhimsy is dedicated to showcasing my love for vintage:
vintage fashion, vintage home decor and vintage, whimsical toys. At
GirlWhimsy, I will share with you my love for all things once used,
recycled and re-purposed. This blog is to inspire me and you, it's
about style and it's about home.
This blog is full of stories about me, my life, my disease and learning to adapt to the changes life throws at all of us... all while trying to be at least a little witty, insightful and fun. :) I hope you find something on here that makes you smile or makes you think. Or both.

My interests and post topics include: dogs, Austin, writing, teaching, yoga, books, tv, politics, gardening, interior design, cooking, painting, travel, photography, and more. All this in a tiny urban condo that's only 400 square feet!...more

My blog was started as a way to frequently update customers, fellow lampworkers, jewelry designers, family and friends to the daily workings of my studio. I also post interviews with other artists on occasion, share design tips, fashion and color trends, organizational tips and book reviews. Sometimes I simply post family photos because readers like to get to know the artist outside of the studio setting.
I'm a little bit country and a whole lot rock and roll.
Spanned the globe, growing up in Wyoming; college and beyond in Washington State (Tacoma and Seattle to be exact); semester in South Africa; brief stint in NYC; and now 5 years of Caribbean living.
