Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger


Happy Saturday.  I have Lori from Thirfty Decor Mom blog this week in the Spotlight.
I found Lori's blog not too long ago and love her style and beautiful home.
Please take some time to read about Lori and then hop over to her blog and say Hi.

Lori also has a wonderful Etsy Site where she makes personalized keep sake books for birthday cards, Christmas cards, School pics etc.  They are adorable and make great gifts.

Hi! My name is Lori and I blog at Thrifty Decor Mom. I'm so excited to be a guest for the Saturday Spotlight here at Junk Chic Cottage! Thank you Kris for asking me to participate!


I started my blog in 2010 and usually post about our home improvement and decorating projects.


My husband Eric and I live with our 2 daughters in Lewis Center, OH. We have a 5 lb Maltese dog named Benny that we love to spoil!



We've lived in this house since 
it was built in 1997 and have made quite a few changes over the years.

Here are a some interesting facts about me ...

•I love the colors turquoise and aqua! You can check out my Pinterest Board "Turquoise Love" here.

•Hydrangeas (especially the blue ones!) are my favorite flower.

•I have 2 younger sisters - yep, I'm the oldest (and wisest!)

•I just recently started a part-time job for a videographer. I was a stay-at-home mom for almost 20 years! It's been a BIG change for me!

•Back in January we decided to start eating healthy and joined a gym. So far I've lost 30 pounds! I feel so much better and definitely have more energy. 


 I have an Etsy Shop called Turquoise & Trine. I love to make card keepsake books. Here is one that I recently made for a Bridal Shower.

My Handyman Hubby built this shelf for me and I love to change it out for the holidays/seasons!

Thanks so much for reading! I'd love
for you to come visit me at my BlogInstagram and Etsy.












Thank you again Kris for inviting me to be a part of Saturday Spotlight!

  3. THAT PUPSTER is hilariously cute...the way he/she is standing! Must be a bichon frisé? And turquoise and white are always a good match for any season, even Christmas!

    Kris, your spotlights are marvelous, helping us greet someone we'd otherwise never meet. THANK YOU!
