Our Story

Love and Happiness in the South …

Hey ya’ll! I’m Heather. I’m a busy mom, wife, teacher, friend, crafter, and (finally) a blogger, that is lucky enough to live this amazingly, beautiful, crazy life in the South.

My business …

I am part owner of a small town, craft business specializing in farmhouse and rustic decor. My business is called Homemade Whimsy. We use everyday items and turn them into beautiful decor for our clients. Some of these projects are featured here on our blog to show how easy it is to add a little southern charm to your own home!

My BIG Southern Family …

Also featured is all of our musings as a large Southern family. You’ll get to know us through our adventures in parenting, teaching, traveling, cooking (I might even teach you to make biscuit and gravy,) gardening, and whatever else life throws at us! We do all of this on a budget and we all try to live frugally. My hope is to teach other’s to do the same. One thing’s for sure, we always put God first and try to count our blessings instead of our stressings!

 

The story…

I grew up in a small town in North Georgia, called Ball Ground, surrounded by family. My grandmother is the matriarch, and over the years, has been blessed with four children, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. (And that’s just my mom’s immediate family!) We all live close by to one another and are the best of friends. That’s amazing, huh? My grandmother has always encouraged us to stay close to our beliefs and cherish our daily blessings. She is one of the main reasons for this blog!
