The last day of school is around the corner, and it’s time to find thoughtful present for an educator who’s gone above and beyond will put a smile on their face.

One element of rustic interior design to love is when items look as if you created them with your own two hands. It takes us back to a time when one could sit at home finding creative ways to utilize the tools and materials around the house to liven up the surroundings.

Hello, my name is Jo Torija,I am a wife to a wonderful husband Carlos and mom to two little Westies - Nelson & Stevie.
I am passionately frugal, and that is where my love of vintage and rustic decorating began. Over the past years I have learned that there are plenty of ways to create a home of style and class without breaking the bank, and that filling your home with unique treasures is much more satisfying than decorating from a catalog.
