Beverly McCulloughBeverly McCullough

Beverly grew up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses so it is no surprise that she loves to create. She began sewing and doing needlework as a teenager and made her own clothes and room décor even then. That love for sewing and crafting has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else she can learn and her blog, Flamingo Toes, was born out of a love of sharing those projects. Her style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – she love taking old styles and making them new and fun again. She is married to her high school sweetheart and they are loving living near Nashville, TN with their two kids and an ever growing menagerie of animals.
