Family, Home Concepts


To start… I’d like to say hello to my new, and veteran readers!! I am truly honored to have anyone read anything I write! I absolutely love writing! I love sharing my thoughts, my passions, my struggles and the realities of everything in my life. I’m assuming that a few people out there might be able to relate to some of my musings. And if I can reach someone, somewhere, even if just for a “yep, been there, done that” nod of recognition, then I’m a happy girl…. and this is a really fun creative outlet for me! If I had the time (and someday I know I will!) I would write A LOT more!!

I love writing, but I also love design and decor!! So, guess what?! I’m going to start offering my design services remotely! And, you can find out what I offer at! Most of this starts with my Instagram account. If you’ve never seen my account, check it out here at .  If you’re on Instagram with me, you may have noticed that I’ve been working on growing my account. I’ve been meeting so many incredible and talented people within the home decor industry. I’m working to team up with individuals whose styles inspire me. Looking for fellow decor accounts to collaborate with and hoping to inspire others along the way. With all of my friends and support on Instagram, offering my decor and design services will be a lot easier and more fun!! So, be on the lookout for a new page here at Hillside Farm, (now jacee-lee) that will offer remote decor services. That means that you can ask for a consultation! You can send me photos of a room you want design advise on, your favorite colors, styles, budget…. and I’ll send you suggestions!

I love looking for beautiful, unique pieces to compliment a space! I love thinking of DIY’s that can be done to economically enhance a room! I love putting together patterns and colors, flooring and tile. Choosing fixtures and textiles that all work together in a space. Even though my personal style is quite eclectic, with a mix of rustic, industrial, farmhouse, a bit traditional and even some world menagerie, I love so many different styles! I can appreciate contemporary, traditional, beachy…. really I love the challenge of putting together what someone’s style is! I think most people probably like a combination of things. Home should be a place where you can be yourself. Where you can relax, feel inspired, be the best you that you can be! I’m hoping that I can help to give inspiration to others and make their space feel like the special, comfortable place it should.

What is MY style??? How do I find out what my style is? What is the value in having a styled space? These are questions I imagine might be going through your head… One word. Pinterest! If you want to find what you like, just scroll through pinterest and start pinning. Before you know it, you’ll start to see a pattern. It’s an easy way to discover what you like and what you’re drawn to. As you’re scrolling through pinterest and pinning all and everything that inspires you, take notice of how this makes you feel. Do you like to see beautiful things? Can you imagine yourself living in such beauty? Think about going on vacation, staying in a nice hotel. Do you know why hotels work so hard to make their spaces nice? Because nice spaces inspire people. A visually pleasing place will be a pleasant place to be. Nobody wants to stay in an ugly hotel! I know that when my home is put together in a way I prefer, I’m more productive and generally happier. My environment and what I surround myself with is going to impact my mood and my day. So I say, why not style the space you’re in the most, in a way you like?

So that’s it! If I’m being completely honest, it’s scary to put this all out there! But, I don’t want to wonder what could have happened if I didn’t try. So I’m being brave, putting my insecurities aside, and I’m excited to get started!!!!!
