House Fenway Market

House Fenway Market

There is no denying it, I love to create! As long as I can remember, I have always gravitated towards art. Paper and pencil, markers, chalk, canvas, computer, you name it, I’ve used it as a creative outlet. This blog is a prime example. Not traditional art mind you, but art constructed with feelings and words. I wanted to share with you today my creations. They are a melt of my art and my love for home decor. Attached to this blog, I have a small shop. It’s a little piece of me, my art and my step to share my creations with the world (because my house can only hold so much!). Here are a couple of the prints  available to purchase. I’m so honored to be able to share them and continue to improve and grow my craft. Enjoy!

Why Off The Shelf Purchases Will Never Be Perfect For Your Home


Picture Credit

When you get a new home, there’s a temptation to transform the space the moment you arrive. You want it to look good, and you want it now. There’s no time to waste making your accessories or ordering your decor to custom. You’re just going to have to bite the bullet and head out to your local store. All the better for getting the space the way you want it, right?

Wrong! In reality, there are a few reasons why off the shelf purchases will never be the perfect fit for your home. There’s no denying that there are some fantastic shop bought pieces on the market. You may even buy some things which you swear complete that room in just the right way.

But, when you look at them in a few months, you may well start to question what you saw in them in the first place. It’s a common occurrence, and it’s part of the reason that so many of us feel the need to redecorate often. By comparison, home crafted or custom additions are sure to stand the test of time. But, why is it that shop-bought stuff doesn’t meet the cut?

It’s not made to fit

The chances are that you measured your windows before heading out for those blinds. Even so, it’s unlikely that you were able to find a pair which was an exact fit. Ahh, what’s half an inch between friends? The trouble is, you can bet that small overhang will soon start to irritate you in a big way. Before you know, you’re back out looking for a better fit. You know what would solve that? Biting the bullet and ordering custom options from companies like Montgomery’s, of course. And, the same rules apply to everything from your carpets to your bedding. Remember; you don’t get convenience without compromise. So, are those quick fixes worth your money?

It doesn’t reflect you

That dog ornament may have looked adorable in the shop, but doesn’t it seems lifeless on your shelf? It certainly doesn’t seem to reflect your personality, and isn’t that what decor should do? But, do you know why it doesn’t reflect you? Because it wasn’t made for you! It’s one of millions made in a factory someplace. By comparison, an ornament which you’ve handcrafted is sure to say a whole load more about who you are and what matters to you.


It doesn’t have any real meaning

When you make or commission something for your house, it becomes meaningful. It’s a one-of-a-kind product just for you and your rooms. Every time you look at it, it reminds you of a time or experience. By comparison, shop-bought home stuff is pretty meaningless. No matter how much you like it, there’s a chance you won’t think twice about chucking it when the new season rolls around. If you operate that way, though, you could soon look at spending a fortune. Not to mention that you’ll struggle ever really to feel at home.

Hi, I’m Lisa! I have been interested in home decor for as long as I can remember. I love looking through magazines, watching decor shows, and even browsing through Etsy to dream up ideas for decorating. Often I would want a sign or piece of art and I couldn’t find it exactly the way I wanted it. So I started making them!
I enjoy the process of designing and painting. I try to make each piece with attention to detail and love!

Trieste Prusso Designs
Business location: Utah

“I have been creating things with my hands for as long as I can remember. I have found an incredible medium of sculpting clay, carving it and then using a complicated aging process.

I love the details that come out of the aging process. A little bit like life, we need to have dark times to help us show all of our beauty.

As an artist I try to stay away from trends. I think trends make people feel uncomfortable. Trends are always changing. It is impossible to keep up all the time if you are a consumer and artist. As an artist. I create pieces that I hope make people feel comfortable and at home, at the same time creating something unique.”

re:Craft & Relic Show Sneak Peek

re:Craft & Relic Show Sneak Peek

It shouldn’t be a surprise by now that I have a great love for the arts and supporting artists and their small businesses. In this new world of technology and conveniences I’ve noticed a great resurgence of art, craftsmanship and an over all appreciation for relics from the past. An amazing thing to celebrate and get excited about!

This “art and relic” resurgence is celebrated by a local Wisconsin show, re:Craft & Relic. The curated show is put on a three times a year and includes 150+ artists, junkers and makers who are selling their wares and treasures. This coming weekend (Nov 10 & 11, 2018), I have the privilege to hangout at the show, meet with local artists and shop for some wonderful treasures myself.

Show Information

re:Craft & Relic
Milwaukee County Sports Complex
6000 W Ryan Rd
Franklin, WI 53132

Saturday, Nov. 10th  – 10 a.m. -4 p.m.
(9 a.m. for VIP ticket holders)

Sunday, Nov. 11th – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

If you are within driving distance to the greater Milwaukee area, I highly recommend coming out and seeing the re:Craft and Relic show for yourself! It’s an artist and junker’s paradise! Need some convincing? We’ll look no further! I have an exclusive sneak peak for you of some of the vendors that will be selling this weekend.

Check out these wonderful makers and we’ll see you there!!

Maker’s Monday: Wildflower Parade

Maker’s Monday: Wildflower Parade

It’s Maker’s Monday! I hope you have enjoyed the blog series so far. It has been an amazing journey, meeting wonderful makers, sharing their passion and craft and highlighting their small businesses. I’ll be taking a holiday break from the series and will be picking back up after the New Year. Next week Monday is the launch of House Fenway’s 2nd Annual Holiday Small Maker’s Gift Guide. A guide highlighting 60+ makers, offering tons of promotions, and gift ideas for the holidays. I hope you check it out!


Meet Wildflower Parade

This week’s maker is a busy lady with a wonderful talent. Meet Alicia from Wildflower Parade , a SAHM of four amazing kiddos with a knack for sewing. Alicia started the business with the motivation of reducing the use of “throw-away items” such as napkins, paper towel and grocery bags. This motivation was not only a step to become more eco-friendly but a smarter way to save money on dispensable products.


Wildflower Parade offers an array of products and styles to help you become more eco-friendly without compromising style! Check out Alicia’s Etsy shop for the full selection of product: Wildflower Parade
