What started out as a family scrapbook called Sunshine & Green Eyes, way back in the early days of blogging, grew & morphed, eventually becoming this eclectic journal. Gypsy Magpie is my virtual happy place. It's where I share projects and design ideas, recipes and gardening tips, triumphs and oopsies, adventure and insight, all from my heart. It's not flashy, consistent, or perfect... but then, neither am I. My hope is that when you stop by, you feel like you're back home, in your comfies, talking to your big sister. That when you leave, you go empowered & cheered on, ready to face the day with imagination, hope & a bit of pluck. 

welcome to my happy place
