Crafter . Designer . Mommy . ❤️
A little about me… where do I start.
Growing up a small town girl, I used to go to the local auction mart with my Grandpa. He would buy most anything that he thought was a good deal and heaven’s forbid he ever throw anything away that might be useful down the road. Those days at those auction’s certainly rubbed off on me as I grew up I started to collect salvaged and antique items of my own. Few things are more fun to me than spending my Saturday’s hunting garage sales and stopping at second hand stores to find that diamond in the rough. I loved to be surrounded by beautiful things, but could never afford the big price tag so I would just make it myself.
Originally a small town Alberta girl, I was lucky to get to travel the world for a few years while living in the big city but have now come back to my roots in Olds, AB. I’m a stay at home mommy to two crazy cute kids, wife to my favorite person in the world (who also happens to be my high school sweetheart), crafter and somewhat a bit of a stubbon perfectionist. I love the color white, red wine, hearts, double bubble, and skinny vanilla lattes! I am a one woman operation with the help of a friend here or there and my wonderful and talented husband!
My passion is to bring you decor inspiration and easy DIY’s that will allow you to create warm and inviting spaces. From refinishing old furnishings to some of my favourite foods, I try to help you bring the ‘little details’ that I use to make my house a home.
I do all my own marketing, emailing, packaging, website and products. I have been refinishing furniture since 2005 and blogging on and off since about the same time. I recently decided to take a break from most of the retail side of B Vintage and have been focusing more on my blog! The rest of it has all just fallen into place after that. I LOVE what I do and thanks so much for visiting my lil’site.
