Goodbye (and the future)


Not to be dramatic but… today is the last time I’ll post to Salvaged Grace, at least for a while. Did I ever tell you that my original plan was eventually to open Salvaged Grace as a retail shop? It’s been a dream of mine to be a shop girl – I imagine I’d be a little like Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail.

But I realized that I’m not ready to leave my career in advertising quite yet. Someday, if/when I open my little shop, you can bet I’ll be back on Salvaged Grace, writing all about it!

In the meantime, I mentioned on Monday that I do want to continue blogging but on more personal subjects. Sometime early fall, I’ll be launching According to Pepper, my new web home where I write about the goings on in mine and BC’s life, as well as anything else that makes me happy. It will be infinitely easier to manage with a broader subject matter and a less rigid schedule (though with regular updates, for sure!). BC’s actually helping me build the website, so it’s becoming a bit of a family affair.

Here’s a little preview of what you’ll read about on According To Pepper:

I imagine you’ll see some reminders of Salvaged Grace on ATP from time to time. You can take the girl out of the blog, but you can’t take the blog out of the girl…

Thank you all so much for 2.5 great years of Salvaged Grace!

With love,

  1. Erin has been working on Salvaged Grace since the day I met her. I remember spending one of our early dates walking around Brooklyn, listening to her vision of what the site might become and being a sounding board for her plans. I was more than a little impressed when it launched so well, and quite delighted to get to know her writing style and discover her knack for finding and reimagining and assembling beautiful pieces and spaces. I’ve learned a lot from this blog, about historic homes and repurposing, about what a settee is, but also about Erin. She is incredibly hard working, and inspired, and she lights up when she comes up with something particularly wonderful that she can’t wait to share with the world. I’ll miss having this blog as a part of our lives. But I can’t wait to see what inspires her next. Kudos, Salvaged Grace. Kudos, Erin. Blog well done.

  2. I will miss Salvaged Grace so much. Reading your posts first thing in the morning have surely brightened my days. I will look forward to the next chapter in your life.

  3. Sad to see salvaged grace taking a hiatus, but glad to hear you’ll still be blogging! Looking forward to reading your new one!
