Meet Dusty of Linen and Wildflowers
First, let me introduce myself; I am Dusty, the heart and soul behind Linen & Wildflowers, where the art of living beautifully meets the magic of a bygone era. I am happily married to my best friend & the love of my life for 30 years. We have four children (1 in heaven) & grandchildren, in addition to our clan, we have 1 dog & 5 cats. We live in a small town in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
I have worked as a Photographer and daycare Owner for over 20 years while being self-employed.
You can view my photography work here. Furthermore, I started my blogging journey about 3 years ago to share my love of thrifting & antiquing.
When I am not capturing memories for my clients, you will find me spending time doing family adventures, antiquing, or doing projects on our 1885 fixer-upper.
We bought our home in 2018, which was built in 1885.
I love old houses. We are doing our best to restore it without adding too much new stuff. We are doing it on a tight budget. I have a love for thrift stores & antiquing. I always enjoy finding that special piece to add to my home decor that tells a story. You will also find me at times early in the morning enjoying some quiet time with a cup of coffee in hand & reading God’s word, along with jotting down ideas or creating my to-do list before the day begins.
But Linen & Wildflowers is not just about decor; it’s a celebration of the art of living well. Amidst the vintage tapestries and aged bookshelves, you’ll find a collection of curated recipes that elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. From cozy family dinners to delightful gatherings with friends, each recipe is a testament to the joy found in simple, heartfelt moments.
Here are some interesting facts about me!
