Hi! Let me start by saying, I am so thankful you are here!! My name is Rebecca Boothe and I was born and raised in Alabama. I am married to my high school sweetheart (cliche I know, but it’s true). We got married at 20, bought our first home at 21 (where we still live) and had our first daughter at 22. Another daughter followed 4 years later, then our precious little caboose came 3 years after that, giving us a total of 3 daughters! I absolutely love everything about having daughters, even the drama and fighting! I work in a family practice office in our town and I have been there since I was 19. My husband is a survey drafter and he has been with his company for 15 years. My husband traveled for the first 13 years of our relationship and just within the last 2 years has stopped traveling! It is so nice to finally have a husband home every night!!
I love all things antique and started antiquing with my Dad as a pre-teen. I walked into my first antique store and fell instantly in love. There is just something about finding a treasure with so much history! My favorite type of antique stores are the really cluttered ones where you could go daily and still not see everything! That thrill of finding something that someone else didn’t see is just so fun!! I love to incorporate antiques and family heirlooms into my decor. I love to decorate with color. I know I know, neutrals are the cool thing and don’t get me wrong they are beautiful! But I love color!! I love cool earth tones and pastels. And did I mention I LOVE ANTIQUES!!!
When we bought our home in 2006 it was a one owner. The same man had owned our house since it was built in 1978 and had pretty much left everything as is, which left for a very outdated home. The problem was, we were 21 and newlyweds so money was tight. I quickly learned how to decorate on a budget. It is so funny to think back now and compare my decor style then to my style today. Totally different ends of the spectrum!! Isn’t it funny how our tastes change as we get older? But my goal back then was to make my home beautiful and inviting without spending a ton of money and it was so fun. Now that our kids are a little older and money isn’t so tight we are finally starting to update our house one project at a time. I can’t wait to share our home and ideas with you!! Thank you so much for being here and taking the time to read my first ever blog post!!!
