About Me

Hello, I'm Emily!

I live in a small country town in Idaho with my amazing husband, two wild tween boys, and a Great Dane named, Stormy. 

They are the reason for my Happy - Sweet - Life.

Together we live in a 90 year old charming home. It was love at first sight when we bought our little cottage in 2013. This house has always felt like it was meant to be ours. I love our home, but if I could change one thing about it, it would be to give it an ocean view. My dream is to one day live by a beach, until then I just pretend that I already do.

  I am a total homebody and I spend most of my days decorating, painting, crafting, blogging, but mostly just cleaning :) My style is laid-back and lived-in, and I'm naturally drawn to Coastal, Cottage, Farmhouse, and Bohemian styles.

Pottery Barn catalogs are my go-to for inspiration and always have been.  I have a large collection of Pottery Barn catalogs from years past and I simply can not look through one without picking up a new decorating idea or two.

Here are four of my personal favorite looks from around our home over the years.  I feel like these images are a true representation of my style. 

Please feel free to take any of the home tours listed in the main menu of this blog.  You'll find many for all of the different seasons.  I love to share seasonal home tours, and it's quite exciting to see how much our home changes throughout the year.

Speaking of which, Did you know that I've changed the color of our kitchen 5 times? It's true.

Here at The Wicker House, you will also find a lot of creative DIY Projects.
Here are just a few of my favorites.

Be sure to have a look at all of the other home decor projects and crafts I've created by scrolling through my main menu tabs. 

And then every once in awhile I'll even share some recipes here on the blog. Most of my recipes are usually something I've just pulled together and thought it tasted good enough to share, like the following.

Cantaloupe & Cucumber Coleslaw
You can also find more recipes by searching the main menu tabs.

Besides decorating, crafting, and eating, some of my other interest are:

Yard sale and thrift store shopping. Yard sales being my most favorite! I think a home always has more spirit if it is full of "treasures".
 I enjoy traveling, especially if it's to a beach. I seriously have a Huge Love for the sea! It's probably because I am a Pisces (two fishes zodiac/water sign). I also love camping. My family and I have a favorite spot next to a beautiful lake and we spend lots of summer weekends there.

Music is a must for me. Jack Johnson, Trevor Hall, Michael Franti, Bob Marley, Ben Howard, Imagine Dragons and Florence & The Machine are on top of my playlist.

I love hanging with friends, reading self help and spirituality books (Eckhart Tolle is my guru)
Yoga, meditation, long walks, bike rides, hiking, and really anything outdoors.

 But honestly, at the end of the day, the most important thing to me is my family.  My home comes in second. I do my best to keep our home full of good vibes and a laid back attitude.
 Because a Home is so much more than just a House.
