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 challenge of creating joy in everyday homemaking and organization.

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. Now that I’m an empty nest Grandma, I’m learning some tricks for cooking for two, now, too!

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. If you’re in Instagram, it’s one of my favorite places to connect with my readers. I share favorite fashion finds and behind the scenes life – and we laugh a lot! Come join us!

xo, Rita
