We are Elizabeth and Elizabeth (liZ), two girls who married brothers and ended up with the same name. Besides sharing a name we also share a love for all things vintage, an addiction to sewing, and an adversion to having our pictures taken We are both former school teachers, each have three children, and together run a blog where we share all the projects that we create for ourselves and our families. Our similarities (and our differences) make us a good team– even if we drive our husbands crazy with all our crafting escapades.
