Welcome to Quarters One! I began writing this blog in 2011 but if you’re new my name is Shand and this website is the new home of Quarters One. I’m excited to continue to share decorating, entertaining ideas and photos with you. My husband retired from the Army a few years ago after serving 36 years on active duty. We moved to a little cottage on an island off the coast of North Carolina to make plans for our next phase of life. We decided, instead of living anywhere else, let’s live where we love! So we added a little fishing cabin in the mountains of western North Carolina to our family and we are both happy and… loving where we live! In the south, it’s common to name your home so our beach house is Lost Cay Cottage and Idlehour is our fishing cabin.
I’m a proud Army mom, an Air Force mother-in-law, and a grandmother. We have three sweet dogs and we live a plant based life style as we are very passionate about animal rights, especially those of farm animals.
I’m also passionate about decor and design and anything that has to do with rearranging any space at all! I try not to write too much when I blog so I hope you’ll visit often and enjoy my photos, maybe pick up an idea or two, and let me know what you think.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I know there are multitudes of blogs out there to visit so I truly appreciate your time here at Quarters One!
Most Sincerely, Shand
