I'm a late 30's aged gal, from SC. I live with my husband, two daughters and one old four-legged gal. I love to knit, sew, quilt, decorate (and redecorate) my home.

Several years ago, I fell in love with thrifting and upcycling. This is how my shop was born. I was buying so many things, and doing makeovers on them, that I didn't have the space to keep them.

About a year ago, I began making and selling burlap buntings in my shop. Since then, they've become my most popular items. Because of this, I've decided to re-brand and change the focus of my shop to include more items that are handmade by me. My original shop name was The Speckled Dog, which was named after my blog. I have recently changed my shop name to Sweet Caroline Home.
