Fabulously Southern – Since I was born!
Fabulously Southern has ALWAYS been my motto!
I get asked all the time when was it that I knew I wanted to be a designer. The true and honest answer is, I have never not known I wanted to be a designer! From as early as I can remember, I was fluffing the pillows on my mothers couch and making suggestions for the window treatments. When I say early, I mean around the age of five.
I never wanted what every other little girl dreamt of having – A Barbie Dream House. I wanted to make my own.
So, instead of having my parents buy me a Barbie Dream house, I made my own. I made them out of shoe boxes and gathered up scraps of fabric to make furniture, curtains and little rugs. I would make bedrooms and kitchens and even cut out pictures from magazines to hang art on the walls! Now this is the twist and why I know I am a successful business owner today. I not only made the Dream Houses, I would go around the neighborhood and sell them! I did this for a few years until I had enough money to pay the neighborhood boys to paint my bedroom. I was around eight years old at this time.
I have been blessed and fortunate enough to realize my dream and know exactly the place that I wanted to fufill it. I have always been a southern girl and that is my passion – to help others build and create their own southern “dream houses.”
