Meet Marie of This Dear Casa.
Hi, I’m Marie! Just over 3 years ago my husband, 3 month old son, & cat drove from Los Angeles to Seattle. We moved for my husband’s new job & thought a road trip was the perfect way to kick off the next chapter of life. Neither of us had ever lived outside of LA county. The move was an opportunity to live somewhere new and for me to stay home with the baby.
We lived with my brother-in-law & his wife while we house hunted, procured a fixer upper home (1929 Tudor style that had lots of remodeling done in the 60s. Hello gold fleck popcorn ceiling!) and proceeded to renovate. Friends and family really stepped up when things took a turn for the worse. Dave, my hubby, did so much DIY on the house. Labor of love sounds so cliche, but that’s absolutely what it was/is.
I’ll be posting about completed, current and future renovation projects; reflecting on the past 3 years through the home we’ve created. And there will be some decor finds, smaller craft projects, gardening, and maybe a recipe or two. I have always loved, thrifting, yard sales, estate sales, swap meets, flea markets, you get the idea, so that will be a running theme! To me, finding second hand items is like a treasure hunt, and I love the sustainable aspect.
