Welcome to my blog!
My name is Gina, and I'm a shabby Chic DYI, and enjoy gardening and tending to my roses and heading to California flea markets to rummage through chippy vintage goodies. I'm constantly redefining the wonderful shabby chic look within my home.
 I welcome inquiries about my designs and DIY tips. 

Happy Decorating, Gina

  6. So happy you have your blog up and off to a good start. I love the pics and hope to see more. Gina, you are gifted and talented with your very own unique style of decorating. You really do live and design with your heart. You are so full of fresh ideas and have the courage to execute them in your home. For example, opening up a wall to find a very old window or removing plaster to discover beautiful brick. You and your home are always welcoming to those who enter. I love to curl up in one of your comfy chairs and gaze at the beauty around me. So much to take in, and there is always something different, something added or moved to a new home within your cottage. Oh, so relaxing, as I'm served a cup of tea by my lovely daughter. Lulu, Julie Rose and Sir George are furry little additions to your decor and also enjoy all the comfy furniture. Let's not forget the humming birds that nest year after year on a chandelier hanging on a porch. By the way the porch is not used during nesting time, it is reserved for mama and babies...Another beautiful sight and yearly addition to Gina's cottage. I look forward to the many blessings coming your way. I am so proud of you. I love you...... Sooo excited and looking forward to the September issue of Romantic Home
