Meet Megan Charters | a Houzz Sneak Peek

This weekend I had the extreme pleasure of meeting librarian, blogger and self proclaimed shutterbug Megan Charters during a photo shoot for Her home tour will publish in the following week or so, but first I wanted to give you a little look-see. Megan is a vintage enthusiast and has a variety of glorious collections in her home. Everything from Matryoshka dolls to cuckoo clocks to mid century cameras to plaid thermoses. I'm so excited for you to see the whole she-bang, but until then, this should tide you over.

The art pictured below is one of Megan's own pieces. Part collage and part graphic design, it depicts a raised plastic relief of a vintage car owned by Megan's former boyfriend. The map is cut out behind the plastic to match the drawing and the whole thing is mounted on a wood block. Isn't it the coolest?

Lola, Megan's Pug-Boston Terrier mix pictured above, poses for my camera. Below, Megan peeks over the top of her handmade quilt. Friends, this quilt is beautifully made. Megan has some serious sewing skills. The appliqué reads "You're Weird I Like You". Well, we like you too, Megan!

More to come...

I think I may need that quilt in my life! Enjoyed the sneak peek. Look forward to seeing her home tour~

Her home has a totally fun and humourous vibe and when I scrolled down to the picture of her holding the quilt I thought, oh she looks exactly like the person I would expect to live there!
