Hey!I’m Autumn and The Pickled Poppy is an uplifting pretty place where you can come to feel inspired! Inspired to simply create, live well, and enjoy every day life.
My most favorite part of life is being a mom to my two little sweet peas! I am blessed to have a super supportive husband who just happens to be my best friend.
About four years ago I decided, “Hey… I think I’d like to learn how to sew!”So I talked my mom into taking a few lessons with me. Just the basics. When we arrived I knew instantly that I was going to LOVE it!You see, I’m the kind of girl who is sold on anything lovely which is sometimes a problem but not in this case!The instructor (Tracy) had a whole room full of amazing fabrics, fancy sewing machines, brightly colored thread, and books with pretty covers.It was adorable and I was hooked!After only 2 lessons I persuaded the hubs to let me purchase my very own, slightly pricey, sewing machine.At the time my oldest daughter was less than a year old so I decided to focus on stitching mostly mommyhood needs such as bibs, burp cloths, etc.It was then that my mind began churning and I started dreaming of sewing, selling, crafting, and blogging.However, reality set in. Back to work I went and I pushed my dream back and told myself that “someday” my dream would come true.Well, a year later after some inspiration and encouragement from family and friends, my “someday” became my “TODAY!” and The Pickled Poppy was born. After almost two years of blogging, sewing, crafting, and creating we've decided to put our trust in the Lord and allow Him to meet our needs as I stay home with our girls and do what I love! So…I would really love it if you would share this delightful journey with me!
