I am a stay at home mom, creator, picker, I love anything that looks old, and farmhouse-ish! I have a slight addiction to thrift stores, and Orange. My favorite days are playing with kids, finding amazing pieces of wood, going to the garage to play, and work, (thank goodness it's heated). Taking the kids to the thrift stores, and showing them that beautiful things are everywhere. My life is so simple, and treasured. My 11 year old boy is already being trained as a helper in the shop when we are building things. I think that Ana is Amazing, and she has become a part of our family, even the 4 year old asks what Ana is doing today.... Oh, and my name is Melanie!
