About Us

Hey y’all!

I’m Nancy, an east coast girl who lives in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
I love it here, right on the coast.

I’m a wife and mother of 2 … grown children. Wow, how did that happen so fast?

And… I am an Artsy Chick!

Yep, according to my husband, I am. He has called me his “artsy chick” since we met 32 years ago.

As a matter of fact, when I decided to write a blog, he was the one who came up with the name.
He’s awesome, I think I’ll keep him.

This is my guy (and me)…


I’m a thrifting, painting, budget-decorating kind of girl.
I’m always on the lookout for a bargain….and often find one!
I love “treasure hunting” (thrift store shopping) and making things pretty.
My husband and I love to DIY anything. Like our home of 17 years, for example.
You can read a bit about it here.

My blog is the place I go to share my love of all things creative.
Tutorials, furniture makeovers, decor on a budget, and so much more.


I am enjoying re.storing & re.styling old, vintage furniture & home decor ….so it can be re.loved!

This “artsy chick” is …

…a huge goofball, young-minded (not sure I’ll ever really “grow up” which is fine with me!), a bit of type A and just silly.

I’m so happy to have you here and am thrilled to have this brand new shop to share all of my favorite finds and products with you so you can create and "re.store, re.style and re.love" things too. 

I hope you will also love and enjoy the other things I've created just for you!
