Meet Kim

I’m Kim, and here you’ll find a glimpse into my life – a life brimming with warm cups of tea, beautiful home decor, and a sprinkle of DIY magic.


Welcome to my cozy corner of the Mitten State!

I’m so glad you’re here.

Whether you’re looking for inspiration to set a charming table, discover your next great read, or find the perfect finishing touch for your home, you’ve come to the right place.

But it’s not all décor and dishes! I’m also a Mimi to three precious granddaughters, a wife to the wonderful “Big Al,” and a passionate advocate for a cause close to my heart. You can read more about my family’s story and our fight against brain tumors in a post titled “The Journey.” In fact, I channel some of that love into sewing cozy blankets to help find a cure.

Here on my blog, you’ll also find curated lists of my favorite things – from homeware finds to the perfect book recommendations – all conveniently gathered on my “Shop My Favorites” page.

So, grab a cup of tea, settle in, and explore! I’m thrilled to have you here. May my little slice of life inspire you to create your own beautiful haven.
