Welcome to The Tattered Pew!
Here you will find an authentic, crazy hard working mom and wife who is an amateur photographer and self-taught designer. I am all about keeping it real and making my perfectly imperfect house into the home of my dreams. One step at a time…
My hope is that other working moms, like myself, who are busy and on a budget, will be encouraged through some of my daily shenanigans with life and home decorating! So grab some coffee or tea and join me as I share decorating tips and tricks, DIY projects, my eclectic style of coastal cottage farmhouse, and the occasional bout of sassiness! I pray you will enjoy reading about my home, my heart, my family and this crazy little family tradition of the church pew!
I have been searching for the perfect topiaries for quite awhile now. Ok let me rephrase that, “affordable” topiaries. Because you can usually find beautiful topiaries but goodness gracious they almost always cost a fortune! My love affair with topiaries started because of my mom. She has a set of beautiful boxwood topiaries that I have always admired and I especially love how she uses them in her home. Thus began my hunt for the perfect topiaries! Join me over on the blog today to see my new topiaries and how I have styled them! XOXO, KELLY

Hello friends! This past week was my Spring Break (I’m a kindergarten teacher) and I decided to tackle a mini makeover for the bedroom that my two little girls share. I love doing this sort of thing, you know…redecorating every chance I get? So for me this was a relaxing break from my every day normal routine. Plus it was truly a team effort which made it all the more fun…. and they LOVE it, and that makes it all worthwhile!
