Welcome to 320 Sycamore!

I'm Melissa and my favorite movie is It's a Wonderful Life:

320 Sycamore is the address of the old Granville house~remember George and Mary throwing rocks at the windows? Mary breaks one and secretly makes a wish that she will marry George and they will live in that house one day. The house is a wreck, George swears he wouldn't live in it as a ghost, but Mary sees the charm and potential in it, and makes it into their home.

So, I guess that's what this blog is all about: bringing out the charm and potential in our homes and families, with a bit of nonsense and good deals scattered here and there. I am a stay at home mom of 5, I'm so NOT a professional, but I love to look at possibilities of what can "become" with limited time and money.

Thank you for stopping by! I've been writing since 2008 -- here are some popular posts you may enjoy, please take your time and look around. I hope you feel welcome and come back soon~
