I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

I bumped into Ricky Leach last night when he was up at WTKA last night signing photo of he and Bo taken following the 1978 win over the Buckeyes.

Last week on air Leach promised anyone who donated $50+ to Debbie Williams-Hoak’s Magic of Christmas campaign that they’d receive a personalized copy from Old #7 and he obviously came through.   Here’s what he put on mine:
