Hi and welcome to The Tarnished Jewel Blog!  

As a wife and a mom of 2 girls (one in high school, one in college), I know how busy life gets.   We are pulled in a million different directions, and our house gets neglected. 

Instead of looking at paint chips and fabric swatches, we are looking at laundry baskets and dirty dishes. Am I right??  

  • I want to help you love your home, by making decorating easier and actually enjoyable!

I have always loved working on projects at my house, and this is a place where I can share those projects and tips with you. 

  • My passion is taking normal items (especially vintage items), and customizing them to fit my style. 

Did I mention I love to paint?  

  • I will paint anything I can get my hands on. 
  • The bigger the challenge the better. 
  • I have sold my items on ETSY, Facebook sites, and local vintage boutiques.

  • I have now been blogging since 2017 (can’t believe it), and I’m so happy to be to able to share my projects/tips with you!!

Thanks so much for visiting The Tarnished Jewel 🙂

Happy New Year 2023!!
