Hi, I’m Lisa. I grew up on a farm in New England, and now I live by the sea, but still in New England.  I live with my husband Jeff, who is crazy about fall foliage and has a blog as Jeff ‘Foliage‘ where he shares photos and info about traveling to our part of the world in the fall.  We also have an adopted Maine Coon cat named Captain (we didn’t name him, he came with it) and he is just crazy.

Besides my Pewter and Periwinkles Facebook page, I have a page about New England called Four Corners of New England website and Facebook page.  We share a lot of fun things about New England there.  I also sell some items in an eBay store under 4cornersnewengland.

Because of my frugal French Canadian upbringing, I hate to see good stuff get thrown away. I love bringing home items from flea markets, thrift stores, and yes, the neighbor’s trash. I love upcycling (that’s transforming something unused into something useful again), making them into my own personal style which I call “French Farmhouse by the Sea.” You’ll see, I’ll show you. I’m taking a boring developer’s condo and making it into my own personal style.

I will share with you some make overs, how to’s, tips and tricks, and pretty things I find along the way. It’s amazing what a little paint and polish can do.

Thanks for joining me.
