About The Fosters

We call South Carolina home as of last fall. We moved from Iowa which is the first home renovation journey we’ll take you on as you read.

Work brought us here as we decided to go on a new adventure. Tim works as a Process Engineer at Bridgestone Off Road Tire plant in Aiken, SC.

I work for the HON Company, an HNI brand, selling office furniture as a Business Development Associate covering both Carolinas.


While our 9 to 5’s can be exciting, we love nothing more than to create. Tim is my project guy. If I can dream it, he can build it!

With a fresh set of eyes and two people willing to put in some TLC, the journey to each room has been anything but ordinary.

You’ll instantly see that I love STRIPES! The name of my blog stems from my love of the ticking stripe. I truly believe you can never go wrong with a stripe when you love all things rustic and farmhouse.


– A few of our favorite things –

 Iowa State University – Green Bay Packers – Rosé Cider – Tacos – Brutal Honesty


Alongside each other, our two dogs plus one on the way, I think we’ve got just about all we need in life.
