hello, hola, bonjour. I’m MARYJO, a vintage soul, who’s married to my honey, aka mr. M., who made all my dreams come true. He made me a wife, he made me a mother and he makes me laugh each & every day. My life revolves around my family & my home and on this blog I share all the pieces of this wonderful life. I love all things that are weathered, tattered, tarnished, rusted, faded, shabby, & distressed because they have a story to tell. Here I tell my story, which includes my love for cooking, home decor, gardening, traveling, entertaining, crafting, and anything that makes life pretty, fun & interesting. welcome & thanks for visiting. XO

the story behind the blog:

in the beginning.....i started this blog to keep in touch w/ family & friends across the country, in uruguay and around the world, sharing family information, travel stories and anything that popped into my head.

in the blog morphed into a communication tool for my scrapbooking business | club, keeping my scrapbook followers informed while also making family updates.

in the now.....i'm taking my blog in a new more meaningful direction. here i plan to share my home & garden lifestyle with like minded bloggers. i hope to teach & inspire others while i learn and am motivated by others as well.

thanks for stopping by & taking a look around.

bye. ciao. au revoir.
