About Me

Hi Thanks so much for stopping by.  You want to know a little about me – Makin My Apt a Home.  I’m ARod and I started this blog to share with you all my thrifty finds & dollar store décor that I use to make my apartment a home.  I set about fixing up my apartment and found a profound love for painting or redoing old furniture pieces.  Since starting to thrift I’ve developed a complete obsession with White Milk Glass and have acquired {and still hunt for} quite the collection.  I’ve had this blog now for 8 years hello 2019.  I’ve showed you 4 different apartments.  Life is an every changing thing follow me along on this ride.

About me Makin My Apt a Home

Life is too short and “It is never to late to be what you might have been”.
I believe you can have a beautiful life, home, and party without spending a lot.  I share with you all how I do it here on the blog. 
I’m ARod and that is my my love Tom.  I usually just refer to him here as my honey.  We are the proud parents to my daughter J.  In January of 2015 he suddenly passed away.  I’ve shared here how I lost my love.
My daughter J  along with her boyfriend are now the proud parents to this darling baby boy.
 Livin life as best I can. Figuring out every day that life is not about the destination but about the journey……
