My name is Gretel and II grew up in the upstate of South Carolina enjoying my fair share of southern accents, sweet tea, skeet shooting, and corn bread (just a few of the WONDERFUL things about the south.) Now I live with my husband, Nathan, and our sweet Black lab, Dixie in the young and hip downtown area of Dallas, Texas. With my southern upbringing and my love for graphic design, color and patterns, I would call my style a mix of southern, modern, shabby chic and urban. It’s not about WHERE you live, or HOW big your house is, but making it homey for YOU and your family. I will be sharing my recent DIY projects, home renovations, newest obsessions, and thoughts as I am nesting in our sweet apartment in Texas. I hope I inspire you to start projects of your own with items around your house or from the yard sale down the block. Happy DIYing!
