About

Hi, I’m Rachael!

There aren’t many items that give me the same sense of home as milk glass. I remember seeing it in thrift stores and in the homes of my midwestern relatives growing up. As a kid, it just looked old and frilly. Now as an adult, I long to collect items like milk jars, antique canning jars, and stoneware crocks to connect me to the past. I want my home to feel like a place my grandma would love to live!

Plus, milk glass is more than just memories. Since most milk glass pieces are now antiques, it represents alternative ways of finding things for our homes.

We should use items connected to the earth – like glass, wood, and metal – and hunt them down in thrift stores and garage sales. We should never shy away from a little hard work as adding a little paint or stain can truly make an item yours.

I believe in DIY from the garden throughout the whole house! This approach helps me save money to pay off my student loans, start a family, and build my future farm and it is a low-waste way to live. I’m so glad you’re here and hope we can find something in common!

Where the magic happens

More often than not, you’ll find me tinkering in the kitchen working on a recipe, feeding our sourdough starter, cleaning up thrifted antiques, or even starting seeds.

Where you can find me!

When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m in the garden or heading to the farmstand. I share my projects, favorite products, and more on Instagram.
