Hi, I’m Rita Joy

I fell in love with home decorating and diy projects in one of our first “fixer upper” houses. Armed with a paintbrush, creative ideas, and a teeny tiny budget, I learned it doesn’t need to cost a lot of money to turn a house into a cozy home. And, in the process, I discovered a love of encouraging other ladies to join me in the fun adventure of homemaking and home decorating.

In fact, I created a FREE Refresh Your Rooms Like a Pro series so other people can discover the fun of room makeovers, too!

Along with home decor & diys, I find myself cooking lots, too

After preparing over 10,000 meals for my family, I finally admitted that I really don’t like to cook.

But, mercy gracious! After all that practice, I’m good at it. (Doggone it anyway!) I’ve had great fun sharing some of my favorite recipes here on the blog – and have just ventured into a fun gig as a food photographer.

If you like to get in and out of the kitchen as quick as possible and still have yummy food on the table, pull up a chair.

I’ve got a fork for you.;)

PS. I put together some of our family’s favorite recipes in this Comfort Food Recipes E-book (on sale now!).

xo, Rita
