About Me

Hello, I'm Debra. My motto is to surround yourself with things that bring you joy and comfort in life. Decorating is such a personal outward expression of who we are, and how we view life. I came to blogging in 2009 as I was looking for inspiration and trying to keep up with several vintage market spaces here in southwest Missouri. My husband and I, who have 2 grown daughters, were a team and spent most of our weekends on the hunt for vintage goods. I’m no longer selling vintage, but my love for incorporating it into my everyday life is still as strong as ever. We live in a mid-century home that we remodeled several years ago, but my life and décor are heavily influenced by my love for antiques and vintage goods.That outlook drives my DIY projects and ever changing seasonal décor. What's my Style...? English Cottage to French Farmhouse, and it has to be comfortable and cozy. I hope you’ll find something you can relate to as I share my thoughts, home, and daily life with a little chipped paint and faded fabric along the way.


  1. I would like to email you asking directions to ozark missouri shops you have talked about.
    I think I'll take off from Columbia Mo and drive down for a weekend and shop, once you tell me best area to shop in ?

  2. Hi Debra! I am hosting a Fall Tablescape Blog Hop the week of September 3rd and still have a few open spots, I wanted to reach out and see if you are interested.

    I run these a little different than you, 4 or 5 bloggers post each day and we all share the schedule and links at the bottom of our post (you will have to update the links during the week if you post early in the week - as the blog posts go live).

    If you can fit us in and would like to join us, email me at Chloe@celebrateanddecorate.com


  3. Such a lovely biography, Debra... Definitely makes me think we could be kindred spirits. <3
    Blessings to you,
    Barb :)
