About Me

I'm glad you stumbled upon my blog and I'm so happy you're here! I'm obsessed with reading blogs - however, I'm new to blogging (started in May 2013) - so bear with me as I experience growing pains and try to figure this whole thing out!  It is my desire to grow this to a fun, cool blog!   And you know - "She DID it, because she THOUGHT she could!" 

My name is Suzie and I love, love, love to UPcycle and REstyle my finds.   I thoroughly enjoy thrifting, junking and crafting.... I can frequently be heard saying, "I can make that for so much less, better, cheaper..." etc, when admiring an amazing home decor item.   About half of my home these days is decorated from thrift store finds, and I'm pretty proud of it!  You certainly don't have to spend a lot of money to have a home that reflects what you love, who you are and someplace that you are comfortable just hanging out enjoying life! 

I love Jesus above all else, with my whole heart and thank him daily for the amazing gifts he's given me.  Most especially my awesome family.  I'm a single momma to a 10 year old son and 14 year old daughter at home and two full grown  daughters (and two full grown son-in-laws to match) and one GRANDBABY on the way in the spring of 2014!   They are all pretty amazing and they inspire me daily in all that I do.  I'm so proud of each one of them for a million and one individual reasons and I love them somethin' fierce that sometimes I feel as though my heart just may burst!  Fortunately, I have instilled my love for saving money and finding deals in all of them!!! I have happy, willing garage sale hopping buddies whenever I want and I know what a blessing it is not to have to feel as though I'm "dragging them along".....
I work full time outside the home, so most nights I fall into bed completely exhausted....but then morning comes and I can hardly wait for the first cup of coffee and the chance to do it all again, a little better than the day before, hopefully, with a little more wisdom, patience and a joyful heart.
I would love for you to join my blog, follow me, make comments and stop by often!  
Dorothy Sue and Millie B's too


  1. Hi Suzie! I am happy I stumbled upon your blog :). You sound like someone I would get along well with as far as your interests go! I am kind of new to blogging, in a way, too. Started mine on Facebook for the first year now I have had my blog on Blogger for 7 months. It's fun and I love writing and sharing ideas, projects, etc. I look forward to seeing what you have so far! Feel free to check me out on www.mollykidstudios.blogspot.com
    Well, it's almost Saturday and if you are like me, it's probably going to be a good morning to hut for a find :)
