Welcome to the fabulous headquarters of Naughty Secretary Club, a vintage palace fit for a queen of craft. Jennifer Perkins is just that. If by some fluke you haven't heard of her, she's one of the original members of the Austin Craft Mafia, the author of her own book, as well as former host of the DIY Network's Stylicious and Craft Lab. She lives with her husband and their daughter Tallulah in Austin, Texas.

In this edition of There's No Place Like Here, Jen opens the doors to her curiosity-filled casa to share her perfect balance of well curated kitsch and collectibles. Amidst the bowling trophies and the Enid Collins purses lies the spirit of a true collector – one with enough brik-a-brak to furnish an island paradise. Jen gleefully declares that once you have three of something, it's a collection. She playfully adds, "Why stop there?"  curio_jar.jpg
