About Me

This is me, Joy (and my adorable dog, Teddy)
Hi!  Nice to meet you, welcome to my design blog.
I love decorating and design (especially when I end up under budget).
I'm a sucker for a sale.
I love molding and archetectural details.
I love shine and sparkle.
I love dogs.
I love baking.
I love pink tulips.
I love sharing great ideas.
We recently moved to a new city when my husband changed jobs.  We bought a new house that needs a lot of style.  I'm new to designing, but I have a lot of passion for it.  I'm naturally more on the mathematical side, but I like to think I have a little creative flair as well.  We'll be doing it all on a budget and there will be lots of do-it-yourself fun.  I'm sure there will be some setbacks and also some triumphs.  I hope you will come along for the ride as we "design" it home. 

I hope you enjoy your time here and come back often!
