It’s nearly a lost art. When most people think of it, if they don’t just begin and end their thoughts with cleaning, they think of dated interiors, meatloaf dinners, and lots and lots of knitting.
Making a house a home is one of the most important things we can do, and there’s so much more to it. This blog isn’t filled with tips and “hacks” for cleaning and “decorating” (though it will have a few). Because once you have a solid understanding of basics (just like in any other career), you don’t need all the tips and tricks.
So why is the blog called Little Victorian?
Little Victorian started way back in 2011 (pretty old in blog years). We had just purchased our first house after 5 rentals in 4 states. And it was…a little Victorian (take a tour here). The blog was updated on our renovations and DIY projects all along the way, but in 2016, we sold the little Victorian to start our newest adventure of moving back to the midwest from the wonderful east coast.
We have a pretty cool MCM home now that we hope to begin restoring soon.
More personally, I’m Christina:
Being a homemaker allowed me to start and run my web development business years ago, so while that’s my full-time job now (from home of course), I still consider myself a homemaker first.
I’ve always loved home design. I’ve been studying it and collecting books on it since my teens. (Vintage ones are the best, that’s where the real design foundations are, instead of just pretty pictures and tips like most modern ones have.)
I’ve also always loved the Hubs. He’s wonderful and has also become an excellent design assistant. The other gorgeous man in my life is Roscoe P Fuzzybuns. Or just Roscoe. And he loves his stuffed animals. Roscoe recently gained a little sister: Em. And what a typical little sister she is… He’d do anything for her, even though she spends most of her time annoying him.
