I’m Betsy, Home Decor Enthusiast, Yorkie Mama, Crafter, Blogger, Picky Eater, Chief Mess Maker, Antique Hoarder and Graphic Designer. Welcome to my little corner of Happily Ever After! In between figuring out life as a newlywed, a full time job and full time school for my honey you can generally find us working on (attacking with a paintbrush) the three bedroom home we are currently renting. While it might not be perfect it is ours, and if you hang out with us for a while you’ll see that what we lack in know-how we make up for in passion. Thank you so much for stopping by to find out a little bit about me!
I have always loved home decor… when I was a little girl I tried really hard to “decorate my room” but since my mama also loves home decor most of it was already done! So I added little touches of my own. I remember when I was 11 finding an old scrap of pink carpet in my Grandpa’s back bedroom… the room that was my Aunt’s when she was little. It was a tiny little scrap… just the end piece from when the carpet guy installed a larger section. Maybe 2 feet long by 1 foot wide… maybe! Completely useless to anyone but an eleven year old with a thirst for decorating and a love for hot pink. I took it home and arranged it in front of my bookshelf… tres chic! That little scrap of carpet was my first foray into decorating… and I loved it to pieces. I still have it… I let it live in my closet now, it decorates the space in front of my shoes!
From then on my love for design only grew, I spent time doing crafts and waiting until the day I would have my own space to decorate! I bought my first piece of furniture (a wooden secretary) in high school… and my collection only grew until I had enough pieces to fully function a three bedroom house… at the time of my college graduation! Yup I’m ambitious! Or a hoarder… we’re not sure which!
Now I’m married to a great guy named Trevor (hint: there’s pictures of him down below!) and we’re fixing up our
first second little house together! There’s always more to learn and an adventure around every corner!
Before you go take a peek at the rest of my fam… I kind of love them so I’m sure you will too! (I’m super confident like that… plus they’re awesome!)
Here’s my super cute, rust scraping, power drill wielding, video game playing, (reluctant) paint brush slinging husband. But you can call him Trevor.
Our fetch playing, bow wearing super spoiled three year old yorkie, Little Bitt aka Bitty.
Our nap taking, hidey hole finding (seriously if there’s a weird space she can crawl into to take a nap, this gal will find it) eldest, Lily.
Our little man, Jasper spends most of his time chasing after one of his sisters… but isn’t that what little brother’s do?
So kick-up your feet and hang out for a while. Laugh while we tackle a paint job or two, not to mention all of our other diy projects. There are no professionals here, just a girl who loves pretty things and a guy willing to put in some elbow grease to give them to her!
