I am Linda the face behind Life on SUMMERHILL!
I am so excited you have come to visit Life on Summerhill! But before we dive into creativity and life I thought I would share where it all began. In 1992 I married my loving husband Marty and became an instant mom to Chrissy, Marty’s then 10-year-old precious and humorous daughter. Soon after the wedding, I started design school at Florida State University graduating in 1996 and then on to Florence, Italy to study more design and art history.
I had so much creativity and energy but little money. It was the beginning of stretching my creativity and dollars to decorate our small humble home.
By 2000 we had two more daughters Savanna, now a sociable college student, and Hannah, artistic high schooler, and moved to a much nicer home. I was in heaven, but still, money was tight, so again creativity was stretched.
WHERE IS SUMMERHILL?
So where is SUMMERHILL–it’s the house I have raised all three girls in the south, one cat named Stinkerbelle, and a floppy eared rabbit named Eugene Flynn Fitzherbert. Summer comes from the hot summer living room that has a large window facing the west and hill is because it sits on a small hill.
Here I have learned many things about life, money, relationships, crafts, decorating, organizing, hospitality and so much more. My life consists of my design business, Linda McDonald, Design, raising my daughters, fur babies and volunteering in the community.
At Life on SUMMERHILL, I hope to bring you along on many kinds of adventures from DECOR which includes DIY projects, HOLIDAY decorating and OUR HOUSE. TRENDING TUESDAY, where you will find the latest trends in farmhouse decor and TRAVEL where I take you some architecture trips. My favorite place to hang out is Pinterest and Instagram. Feel free to come hang out with us there.
