Hi, I’m Ann, a home decor blogger here at Dabbling and Decorating, a thrifty and vintage home decorating blog from our collected homes in Vermont and Coastal Maine. Dabbling & Decorating launched in 2017 after I retired from a 26-year career in education sales in Connecticut and retired to our dream spot in the mountains of Vermont.
Passionate about decorating my home since I was a little girl growing up on the coast of Maine, I constantly changed around my parent’s Coastal Maine Home every time they left the house! I share all about our family’s Coastal Maine Heritage and Embracing my Roots here.
I learned everything from my mother, who was an avid antiquer, thrifter, decorator, and crafter. My father enjoyed making his own furniture, antiquing, and playing tennis until he was 86 years old! There’s not a thrift shop or a flea market that I can pass by!
After the recent passing of my parents, we are now renovating and redecorating the home they passed down to us.
My husband of 23 years and I enjoy skiing, hiking, kayaking, golfing, and traveling together.
Along with our sidekick Ella, a Bernese Mountain Dog who pops in from time to time.
