Hi, I’m Lynn!

Welcome to Living Large in a Small House!

Are you looking for some ways to refresh your home decor, organize your home, entertain family and friends, decorate your home for the holidays, or learn about how we live in a 1,300 sq., ft., home?

Well, you’ve come to the right place!

I use my degree in Interior Design to bring you decor inspiration. My 40+ years of cooking fresh, mostly from scratch meals for family and friends is something I also enjoy sharing with all of you. If you are a lover of gardens, you’ve found a friend in me.

We’ve raised three kids in our small house. There is no garage or basement but we’ve not only made it work, we’ve also made it beautiful and functional.

These days it’s just me and my “Handy” husband Keith in the house however, you’ll hear about our grown kids often as now we seem to be doing projects at their homes along with our own.

The reason we have stayed in this small house for 30 years, is that first and foremost, I can’t get “Handy” to leave, and second, we have a beautiful river in our backyard, and it’s really special to wake up to that view every morning.

Thanks for being here and letting me share our little corner of the world with you!

Finding Your Way Around

My home page is a great place to start. It’s where you can find everything that is on my blog. The bars at the top of the page break down my posts into specific categories. I think you will find that there is something for everyone.
