Welcome to The House on Silverado. It’s so nice to meet you!

I’m an Iowa girl who has spent my whole life in the Midwest.

I’m a wife, mom, stepmom, recently retired teacher, and blogger. Plus, I recently added “Gigi” to my list of titles when our precious granddaughter was born last year. A grandson is on the way soon. 💕

I enjoy entertaining, gardening, cooking, decorating, crafting, traveling, and all the family time I can get.

I love all things farmhouse, rustic, vintage, and historical–basically anything that has a story behind it. Because when it comes down to it, we all have a story to tell, don’t we?

Join me as I decorate, create, and celebrate life’s little moments.
