Hello and Welcome! So glad to have you here! I’m Laura, owner of Junque Cottage and enthusiast of all things home décor and DIY related. I am a Texas gal born and raised. Wife to my soul mate and momma to our beautiful daughter. I am an animal lover and we have 3 crazy dogs, Harlee, Hershey and Tessa. I was a vet tech for many years and still “accidentally” bring home strays from time to time. I spent most of my life in the Pharmaceutical Industry but left that career to stay home with our daughter. Soon after, I began changing around spaces in our home and doing most of the remodeling myself with help from my husband. I’ve learned a lot along the way and I love sharing my experiences with others. Since leaving my career, the budget for decorating and home improvements became small so I had to learn how to decorate with thrifted or found objects which began my love of decorating. I have always been frugal but never had the time to put that to use in our home decor. I am so thankful for the time I got to spend at home with my daughter and that I found a new passion in the process. Thank you so much for following along on this journey.
We are in the process of purchasing a 1908 farmhouse in the heart of Texas and I am so excited to share this new chapter in our lives with you. Follow along as I update each and every room. I will share my failures and successes and can’t wait to learn more.
