About Me

How lovely we have crossed paths! My name is Suzie, I am passionate about creative design. I have been blessed to have been in the design industry for over thirty years. I love all the unexpected treasures that speak to my heart.


My favorite design crushes are Vintage, French, Farmhouse, Cottage, Industrial, Rustica, Chippy Shabby Chic, Western Prairie Chic and Vintage Garden Wares. You will find a little nibble of all that I love tucked here and there throughout our home.

I believe that great design, when walking into a room, feels effortless, timeless and classic. I don’t follow all the decorating rules. I believe you should surround yourself with what speaks to your heart, where your cherished memories live, and what reflects you and your family’s story.

I am in love with hunting for unexpected vintage treasures and the stories they tell. You will find my black sheep soul sisters, who are my guardian angels on this earth and lifelong friends, and me, out exploring scrapyards, rural country sides, flea markets, antique shops, thrift stores, estate sales, garage sales, and anything interesting off the side of the road. Where ever the heart may lead.

Joy, to me, is: creating designs and breathing new life into and repurposing vintage finds, that will inspire and grace many homes and gardens where new stories will emerge. Join me on this beautiful and soulful adventure as we seek to live a life of purpose through grace. A life inspired by creative living. Learn more about me
