Introducing Our Guest Contributor

I am super excited to introduce our guest contributor today! Some of you may have guessed who it is but if you haven’t, I am pleased to announce that… (drum roll please) my Mom will be joining us!!

For those of you who don’t know, my Mom’s name is Sheri and she is super awesome! You can read more about her here. It’s going to be nice having another contributor around here because although we like a lot of the same things, we definitely have our own styles so now you will get a broader range of ideas. But, I must confess, you will definitely still get to witness the power of spray paint because we both are firm believers in it!

Now for a little bit of background info. A few years ago my parents sold almost everything they had (including their home and business) in Oregon in order to move to Brazil. So far, they have been unable to get a permanent visa so they bought a house here in Tennessee (just 1.5 miles from me!) and live here for about 6 months out of the year and the other 6 months in Brazil. I have been super blessed to have them out here with me since I thought when we moved here 4.5 years ago that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to live near them again. We have been making the most of our time together doing what we love, projects, thrifting, decorating, you name it. And now we get to share it all with you! Plus, the business that they owned in Oregon for 30+ years was a cabinet shop and so my Dad can make just about anything with wood. Just wait until you see all that they have been up to! The house they bought here was in need of a lot of work and they have been putting a bunch of love into it so there are lots of projects to share.

Here is a picture of my Mom and Dad from a couple of years ago so you can know who is behind the posts:
