All About Me

I am a recent college graduate, a small town girl, and a decor enthusiast.  My fiance and I, have three adorable, crazy dogs that keep us busy.We are also in the process of opening a new shop, Eclectic Finds, for all of our unique projects and vintage treasures.  We just bought our first house, an 1891 farm house, and we are working our way through remodeling and decorating our new space.  We are loving the unique features of this gorgeous old place, and also working around the oddities! This blog is a place for me to journal our progress as well as thoughts, ideas, and inspiration on anything from decor to life.  I hope this leaves some inspiration to you all, and leave me a comment if you have any adivce for us!

    I’d appreciate if you can give me some feedback on our site: and our item hanging Eames.

    I realize that you are home decor-modern design connoisseur 🙂 I’d like to hear your opinion/feedback on our products. Also, it’d be swell if you can place our link on your blog.

    Thank you,

      If you are talking about the old school desk with the wood top and attacthed wood chair (its actually kind of beige) I can’t sell that one, but we have a very similar one in storage and could sell it if you are interested!

    So glad I found your blog! I’m also a young professional and on a budget. I just got my first apartment, an adorable little garden apartment with an out-dated kitchen but gorgeous hardwood floors. I JUST moved in and it’s very bare, so I’m always looking for new ideas!!

    • jessimarie33 said,

      Thanks for stopping in! Your apartment sounds so fun! Good luck with it!

    Hi! I came across your page tonight while searching for a lamp that my granny used to have. Anyway, there is a picture of it in your post from December 30, 2008. It’s a lamp with sort of fiber optic threads. Do you still have the lamp or have any information about what company made them or what it is called? My granny died years ago, but that is the one thing I remember from her house and I would love to buy one. Thanks so much!

      Hi! We do still have the lamp hanging in our sun porch! My grandparents always had it hanging in their home. Its called a Rain Lamp, or at least that’s what they always called it. I did some research about it when I inherited it. You use mineral oil in it, which drips down the threads at it warms. It looks like its raining. I have cleaned ours up and got the light working, but it is very noisy when it runs, so we don’t really run it. Just for looks, lol. I have seen a few for sale on ebay and even in antique stores. Good luck! 🙂
