Home Decor, DIY Projects & Cooking for One

Little Farmhouse in the Big City is a blog about home decor, DIY projects & cooking for one, blending my backgrounds in the South, West & Midwest. My Minneapolis farmhouse was built in 1900 and I bought it in 2010, inheriting a beautiful garden and custom woodwork from the previous owners. Visit “Room by Room” to see the before/after shots for each room in the house!

My regular post series include:

  • Recipes for one
  • Recipes for entertaining
  • Views from Instagram
  • Book reviews (home management, crafting/DIY, gardening, cooking)
  • Tips for first-time homeowners
  • Family & friends at the farmhouse

By day, I’m a digital strategist at a global communications agency. My mom calls me an “old soul.” I’ve never met an airline ticket I didn’t like. Feed me hash browns or nutella and I’m a happy girl. Books, typography, graphic design, technology blogs and photography … I love it all.

You can follow me on Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, Goodreads, Instagram and Facebook. If you live in Minneapolis, send me a note! I love meeting fellow bloggers and DIY-ers.
