Pinterest. That's great! That's how I've found most of the blogs I read and why I actually started this whole blog to begin with. So, thank you Pinterest!
Now, a little bit about me. My name is Blair and I live in Norfolk, Virginia. Despite having gone to school for four years at Virginia Tech and then moving back to and living in Virginia since 2007, I am really a Jersey girl at heart. Don't get me wrong, I love the south, but my heart will always be where my family is, and that is up north.
To be completely honest, I have zero background in design, decorating, building and blogging, but yet here I am, tackling a blog all about DIY home decor. Crazy, I know! I have a degree in Communications and have worked in public relations, advertising, newspaper reporting, magazine editing, as a TV personality and finally as a marketing account executive for the medical school my husband graduated from in Norfolk.
Aside from the DIY projects that seem to rule my life recently, I am an avid horseback rider. I own a horse, Ellie, who I don't get to see and ride as much as I'd like. Horses have always been a huge part of my life and you will see a lot of their influence in my design choices throughout my house.
Speaking of my house, I purchased a lot and built a brand new house back in June 2009. I am a first-time homeowner and I love it! Though the house was brand new, there were a lot of builder grade materials that I had to put in because I couldn't afford the upgrades at the time the house was being built. Little by little I've been making my house a home by adding character through the many DIY projects I've tackled and plan to still take on.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!
