HI, I’M COLLEEN
I’m a mom to 4 wild ones & the face behind Lemon Thistle. When I’m not making memories with my family (I’m the mom that drags everyone to throw rocks in the river, no matter the time of year), you can find me tackling a DIY project, brush lettering yet another quote, re-arranging a room (again!) or blogging away.
I’ve got a case of the ‘I can do that’s and a husband that says ‘why not?’. Together we worked our way through top to bottom renovations of our first home (the DIY way!) and then started all over again with an 80’s rancher. It brings me so much joy to be making this old house into a home full of life, function and style. (you can see those homes here).
There’s two beliefs that I hold pretty tightly to when it comes to this blogging thing and specifically, DIYing home.
Your home should work SO hard for you and your family… and look darn good doing it.
I BELIEVE YOU CAN HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOME, PARTY & LIFE WITHOUT SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY- JUST A LITTLE CREATIVITY.
Above all the beautiful things- for me, blogging is about authentically connecting with others.
I share the beauty with a healthy dose of reality. A DIY didn’t totally pan out? I share that so you don’t have to find out the hard way. And renovations with toddlers underfoot? For goodness sake, let’s talk about that.
Thank you for being here and sharing this space with me!
