Hello!  My name is Leslie.


It’s so nice to meet you!

I’m a wife and mother of three boys, one girl and a toy poodle named Charlie.  We do not live on a street, avenue or road.  We live on a “way.”

We call Kentucky home and Florida our home away from home. I have a degree in Elementary Education, but chose to be a stay-at-home mom. My focus has always been my family and my home.

One definition of the word Home is the place in which one’s domestic affections are centered.”


I truly have a love for design and home decor and I am continually working to make our house a beautiful home.  I find that it is a continual process that changes as I evolve as a person, wife and mother.  I consider my style to be eclectic…a little bit of everything.  I mix antiques and flea market finds with current new pieces.  I want my home to be layered with pieces that tell a story….the story of our lives…and red is my signature color.

My goal for this blog is to share and hopefully inspire my readers with my ideas and thoughts on home decor and other numerous things that we can do to make our homes beautiful.  This blog is written for those who seek to have a home that is not only lovely but is also warm, comforting and welcoming.

  1. Hi Leslie–I found your site on Pinterest while searching for a few ideas related to organizing to help my clients. Your background is very similar to mine. I just completed 29 years of teaching elementary school . I did however leave the classroom for a few years while our kids were babies, but went back once they were in school. I plan to know develop more of my home décor business . Right now I only have my Fb page to showcase, but website will be finished soon. I do live in Naples, Florida where sometimes it is challenging to help other since most are here to retire and not remodel. But there is a clientele of younger couples moving in and settling because of the easy of the area and that is exciting. You have some great ideas and perhaps we can still stay connected as we share things that help to create an nicer home environment for our families and others.

    Take care,

    Leslie, I found your blog at SouthernHospitality. Your home is beautiful! Would you please share the color of your walls in your kitchen and laundry room? Thanks.

    • Thank you Fay! I’ll be honest, I don’t know the name of the color:( It was here when we moved in. It is Sherwin Williams. I’ve had others ask, so I am going to do some investigating and I will try to find out. If I do, I’ll get back with you! Sorry. Have a great weekend.
