For as long as I can remember I have been decorating and designing. My mind rarely turns off, actually, some of my best work has come to me in my dreams at night.
After graduating from the London Guildhall University with a degree in interior design, I dabbled in the industry until I had three babies to look after. It was about this time that we decided to purchase a 1906 farmhouse on some farmland and my country living roots were revived.
I credit my British training for my obsession with Old World elegance and for the fact that I forget to breathe when I drive through historic neighborhoods.
Currently, my days are filled to overflowing with home restoration, homeschool, gardening and farm life.
I belong to Jesus and have found my resting place in His amazing grace.
After surviving Leukemia as a child, intentional living and time management became passions of mine and eventually, led me to create on online course focusing on these topics.
She Holds Dearly was birthed out of a passion for vintage homes and a longing for the slower, simpler life that is so often connected with them.
It is for the soul who finds beauty and wonder in the broken and forgotten and desires to see them restored.
For anyone who identifies with the idea that a home should be a sanctuary and place to celebrate those you love,
this site is for you.
It is my hope that here on She Holds Dearly you will find tricks of the trade from the interior design industry, vintage inspiration or even just a quiet moment in your day.
I invite you to hold dearly.
