Hi! I'm Anna Rose. Yep, both Anna and Rose. Anna Rose. Born in Idaho, raised in Montana and currently living in Utah, I am 100% a small town girl. I grew up in a home where refinishing furniture, renovating and crafting were everyday occurrences. In fact, I plainly remember (if you can believe it) pulling up hot pink carpet at the age of 4 in my parent's room. Underneath that carpet was a beautiful hardwood floor- I've been hooked on bringing out the beauty in forgotten things ever since.
My beautiful family
Fun facts about me. I...
have a weird thing with food textures. I can't eat jello, yogurt with fruit in it, clams (clam chowder), gummy candies, shredded wheat, cottage cheese, bananas (unless they are green and a little crunchy), orange juice with the pulp...you get the idea.
can't leave a message in my inbox marked "unread," it bothers me
have never lived in any one place longer than 7 years
couldn't be happier than to go thrifting one day, find a piece of furniture dieing to be beautified and refinish it that same day.
have a handsome husband of seven years, a beautiful four-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy.
love the 20s and 50s style
have an amazing seamstress of a mother, but still struggle with the sewing machine
love to run. Trained for two half marathons and plan on running another next year.
am named after two grandmothers, Anne and Rosa, hence the double name
would love to buy a "project house" and spend my days renovating!
Thank you to all who have joined me on this wild ride of The How-To Gal blog and if you're just tuning in, please join me in my attempt to turn thrifted items into stylish treasures.
