Your home should feel like YOU.

In 2015, my family moved from our first home into our current fixer-upper. After sharing a room with our toddler for the summer and living without flooring for the first six months, it was time to start turning our "house" into our "home".

The never-ending list of needed home repairs gave me the push I needed to hunt for and gather treasures in unlikely places. With a limited budget, I started to frequent local flea markets on Sunday mornings to hunt for original artwork. I scoured Ebay for vintage persian rugs. Daily Craiglist hunts let me score a vintage peacock chair for a song.

Each new find filled me with inspiration and soon I started creating my own art to add to my collection. My love of plants led me to start weaving plant hangers which quickly evolved into making larger scale wall hangings. My work is constantly changing and evolving, inspired by my life and travels.

Our fixer-upper gave us more than just a place to call home, it also gave me the inspiration needed to discover my style and create unique and beautiful things.

Through The Forest Fern, I hope to share my creations and finds with you. Make sure to follow me on Instagram for inspiration, tips and a behind-the-scenes look at my work and life.

    Owner, Creator

    I'm Sara and I'm the owner of The Forest Fern. I started The Forest Fern to share the things that I create with those around me. A little bit about me... I am a self-taught macrame artist, house plant lover, wife and mother of two wonderful toddlers. The only thing that will get me out of bed (willingly) before 7am is the flea market. You can often find me in the kitchen and I can't get enough of The Great British Baking Show. I spend my free time hunting for original vintage seascapes and tiny brass owls. I love homes filled with unique and personal treasures. I believe that your home should look like YOU live there.
