Welcome to ButtonberryDesigns.com!

I am very excited to present to you Buttonberry Designs’ new online home. I have been looking forward to having an online space to share with you for quite a while. This is where you will be able to read my blog posts, find the newest Buttonberry creations for sale, and hopefully find inspiration for making your home a cozy haven for you and your family.

I think your home should be a reflection of your family and personality. We have all been in houses at one time or another that feel a bit like a museum… like you don’t feel comfortable even sitting down in one of the pretty chairs, let alone flopping down on a sofa! Everything is perfect looking, and untouchable. Like you need to be on your best behavior while you are in that room. But nobody really lives like that. (Except at Downton Abbey, but they have a lot of help!)

Ideally, I think a home should feel like a hug when you get home from a busy day. A warm and welcoming place for you, your family and your guests. That doesn’t mean perfection, it means reflection of your life and family. A place where keepsakes and mementos of your family’s history is displayed. Where reminders of your travels start conversations of great times that you have had, as well as dreams of your future journeys.
This is what I hope to help my readers achieve through Buttonberry Designs. To give you ideas and inspiration that help you create the look and feel in your rooms that you can’t wait to come home to.

Like they say: Rome was not built in a day, and neither was this website. This is just the beginning. In addition to the blog posts, I will have DIY instructions for making decorative items, video tutorials, some sewing instruction and advice, as well as encouragement along the way. We’ll get it done together!

Let me see your thoughts and questions in the comments. I am looking forward to this online journey with you!
