About Me



I love helping my local Pittsburgh friends find the best yard sales and thrifty finds. It is my passion to find a piece of furniture (OR something completely random) from a thrift store or yard sale AND turn it into something even more beautiful. This blog is aimed to funnel my passions for projects & mama life. AND speaking of being a mom..






I am mom of two little ones ~~~ my two year old son and baby daughter {AND wife to my college sweetheart}.

I studied elementary education in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and worked as a teacher, tutor, childcare worker and nanny for several years. I decided to stay at home full-time after my son was born in 2016. I still have a love for creating lessons & activities as you will see reflected in my freebie section!

With two littles, I feel like I am in deeps waters some days in this mama life!  But being devoted to my family is a huge blessing and I’m grateful for everyday in my little house in this little city…let me tell you more about this awesome place I call home…






Have you been to Pittsburgh? Do you get to live in this amazing city like me? I love so many things about this special place ~~~ beautiful, unique neighborhoods to explore, free events, welcoming communities, amazing parks, my dearest friends…
