My name is Becky, I am mostly known as “mommy” and “coach Mac’s wife”. But those who have followed me for the past 5+ years, they know me as PinkLemonade. It all started with a hair bow for Libby and turned into a little clothing line called PinkLemonade. I was the sole creator and designer. I spent many a late nights / early mornings at my dining room table creating something special for my customers. I am so blessed to be a part of so many memories.
I learned everything on my own as I went along, I have said this before but, I seriously did not even know I had a talent. Let alone had it in me to sew or be crafty. As that little road called life takes me on twist and turns. Its brought me here today.
I am on a mission to break all the “rules” again!
My so sweet aunts tried to teach me to read patterns and sew, after years of struggling I decided to take a new approach, no real patterns just measure cut and make up as I go, this came easy to me and spiraled into so many wonderful things 🙂
I am not known for my grammar and spelling, in fact I was horrible in school, but worked hard. It was not until my senior year of high school that my English teacher said he liked my writing style ( despite all my errors!) , lets just say he handed me my diploma, there was hope 😉
So with that ounce of hope in the back of my mind paired with a nudge & a series of life events, I started this blog. I have no design knowledge, professional sewing or photography degree. I am just a real mom, wife, on a super little decorating budget. I have a love for all things junque, vintage , trash to treasure, painting , all things inspiring & home.
So I am…
a design rule breaker
Mommy of 4 kids ages 1 to 9
a DIY junkie
wife to a football coach, He is my best friend and super supportive to all my crazy ideas
a person who constantly rearranges the house
paint and repaint, never gets old to me
on a mission to DIY this old house room by room on a budget
make pretty things for your home
make something old new again
… and so “junque in the trunk” was born.
Hope you join me on my journey.
