Hey there! I'm Julia, the founder of the website Tag & Tibby. Our family DIYs 90% of our home projects and we shop sales over paying full price. I hope my articles here inspire you to improve your home on a small budget!
How did the name Tag & Tibby come about?
Tag & Tibby found its name through a 1930’s early reader book and its characters Tag and Tibby (a dog and cat). Several years ago I sold vintage books and decor on Etsy, and adore all things antique and classic and the name just clicked! Our home style is still an eclectic blend of vintage and new.
I grew up just outside of Savannah, GA. My husband and I lived in Louisville, KY and Saint Paul, MN before settling in North Carolina. Room by room we are updating our suburban house with eclectic style on a budget.
I have a degree in Industrial Design from Georgia Tech. My husband Lee and I have 2 creative tweens who enjoy helping behind the scenes. Our family LOVES to shop on a budget from clearance racks to thrift stores. Slowly updating our home on a budget gives us space to save for the future, tithe to our church, and go on family vacations. When it comes to DIY projects I love to paint and my husband likes to build.
