Welcome to our Home !
Thank you for joining us on Shepherds and Chardonnay !
Why “Shepherds and Chardonnay“?
I wanted the title to reflect my daily Life, which also reflects the content of this Blog.
My day starts with My German Shepherds waking me to feed them and let them out, we wrestle and cuddle in bed first though!
most of my day is spent finding furniture to re- fabulate or flip. I do both. I’m going to take you along on some excursions to find furniture, why i buy what I buy and pass on others. Why I may choose to just re-sell some pieces as opposed to re-fabulating them.
My experience with re-furbishing and the tips and tricks I have picked up on the way and the products I preffer and why.
I’m going to show you before and afters of my furniture pieces.
Aside from the furniture I am also A Home Stager and Decorator.
I will be fabulously re- doing our 1959 Ranch Style Home on a very tight budget, (challenge enough but our house has an identity crisis!) you see my husband has recently mostly retired. ( more deets on that later!)
I will create and share design boards both for my ideas and to show you the possibilities you could achieve on a frugal budget that will include Fabulously Frugal Finds!
You are going to get some really creative up-cycling ideas as well as original craft ideas and Holiday Decor.
occasional recipes and Graphics.
So ……..New – old house….High End Taste…….Frugality…….Husband underfoot……..and then theres the German Shepherds, whom we adore, and are spoiled………….their clash with my High end Taste and how I make everything work together!……here’s where the wine comes in……….need I say more?
I Love Life each and everyday and even a bad day is a good day when you throw a little Verve in it!
Come on along and be wowed, educated, inspired or at the very least , entertained !
If you leave here with a smile on your face, my heart is full!
