One look is all it took…
When I first saw her, I thought she was beautiful. After having an actual conversation, I found out she was caring, funny, and smart as well. She was the prototype. I didn’t know right away that I wanted to marry her but it didn’t take long to figure it out. That was just the beginning and can’t wait to see what the years bring us. And like she’ll tell you, this is our love story told in furniture. Her idea…I just put the pieces together. lol
Alfreda (Freda) – I would imagine that finding love in a big city is a little difficult. Especially since no one makes eye contact or says ‘hello’. It’s the total opposite from the south where I grew up. But one day I was minding my own business and lo and behold the finest man I’ve ever seen appears. When I saw him, I said , “Hmm, he’s cute. Tall, dark and handsome in the flesh!” in my mind of course. After a few fleeting glances, we started talking and as they say “The rest is history”. (Who is they by the way??)
Both of our daytime jobs aren’t very exciting so we get most creative and fully blossom after work. Our blog is not only our love for all things home decor but also a chronological record of our relationship…told in furniture. It’s filled with my descriptive and whimsical stories along with Harvey’s clear and concise DIY instructions. Together we are living life to the fullest, laughing until tears stream down our faces, and loving our house into a home…one room at a time.
We hope you enjoy!
