Where it begins

There you are, world!  Welcome to Lovely on a Dime and this is my FIRST blog post!  Eek!  My purpose on creating this blog is to share all the things that I’ve learned so far, and all the things I will learn along the way, to make your home beautiful, comfortable and stylish.  And our first home will be the guinea pig!!  We’ve had our home for a full year now and have done lots of changes, but we still have a long way to go.

I truly believe you can live in a home that looks like a page out of a magazine…just not with the same price tag.  With a little “out of the box” thinking, savvy shopping and elbow grease, I’m slowly turning our over 100 year old house into a showstopper.  I’m always taking on new projects or adding some (meaning a ton) on my husband’s to-do list, as well as helping plan loads of baby showers/bridal showers and weddings.  So I’ll be showing before and after photos of rooms, and little tutorials of how-to’s and some neat tricks to get a high-end look without spending too much. There is inspiration everywhere I look, especially on other blogs and Pinterest!  They inspire me to create and put a twist on it to make it mine.  I hope that I can stimulate some inspiration for anyone out there that wants to make their home just a little bit more lovely.

So please join me on my journey!  I’ve been talking about starting this for a long time now and I’m looking for some friends to come along for the ride.  I hope you will share with me your projects and journey as well!  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to chat with you soon!

Stay lovely,


p.s. I’m still trying to get a handle of creating with site and the look might change a little as I progress.  Please bear with me through the changes. 🙂
