Want more … a little more from Wendy

I’ve been a DIY’er along with my husband for so long we can’t remember not being into DIY! We bought our first house on a shoestring budget and just made do with DIY. I’m lucky to be married to Mr. FPM, my best friend (cheesy right?), I have 2 grown children (and oh my gosh a new grand baby girl – so fun) and I help my hubby run his service industry business as well,  we are busy and happy.

I am a dreamer and a doer and there is ALWAYS another project on the horizon.

  • I believe in a collected not decorated home and I think you should decorate for yourself and how you live, not define yourself by trends or budgets.
  • I don’t think you need big budgets for big joy in your home.  We love “perfectly imperfect” style, done enough (no room or house has ever been “done” in my eyes)
  • I am told I have a cozy and happy home and that makes me happy.
  • I am a compulsive re decorator (true story) and re-renovator and we are currently renovating our 4th and 5th homes. (One is a cottage, you can read about that here).

I am passionate about helping other small business creatives and have recently added coaching retailers to my list of things I love to do! Fun right?

Teaching and inspiring others fills my happy bucket BIG TIME!

We don’t do perfect at home, we do comfy, we do big family and friend gatherings, we do smoky bonfires and dogs on the furniture, and we most definitely like to hang out on our porch!

I like vintage, reusing quality furniture and breathing new life into old pieces, and I love teaching others how to do it too!

I truly believe paint has the power to rock your world!

I LOVE old ironstone dishes, tainted silver, terra cotta pots filled with geraniums, marmalade jars, bunting, light filled rooms and wine or tea on the porch. My hope is to inspire you and help you make your house a home, one project at a time, affordably.

The way your home looks should give you joy.

Simple pleasures are the best.

Please drop into one of locations, you will get the front porch service, cuz that’s how we roll! Thanks so much for stopping in, I hope you will stick around, leave me a comment if you can, or drop into the shops or attend one of our many workshops.

 I’d love to meet you! Thanks for stopping in!
