Hello, I’m Lori Brasseur
Hi everyone, I’m Lori, and blogging may be a new thing for me but decorating and organizing are not. I had my own decorating/redesign/organizing/staging business for almost 12 years. I absolutely loved what I did and I miss it sometimes, but things change (like having grandchildren YEAH).
So, now I invest in real estate and love to flip old, dilapidated houses and make them beautiful homes again. This is something that my husband and I do when that perfect house comes on the market. For me, flipping allows me to do everything that I love; designing a space, decorating, and staging, all in one. It couldn’t get any better than that, could it?
I also worked at our neighborhood charitable thrift store, Leeward Light, and loved being able to interact with employees, volunteers and customers. Being right there when all the good stuff comes into the store wasn’t a bad deal either.
Some of what you will see on the blog is re-purposed items (hence the name Our Re-Purposed Home) that we have found thrifting, at yard sales, and flea markets.
I’ve been married to my husband Dale for 36 years and I can honestly say it gets better and better every day. I hate the term “soul mate” because I think it’s overly used, but I honestly can’t think of a better word to use to describe our relationship. He is the man of my dreams, my hero, my best friend, my rock, and I can’t imagine my life without him.
Although we have been through a lot together, one of our greatest accomplishments is our two boys, Kevin and Keith. But, as if it couldn’t get any better, Keith has blessed us with an amazing daughter-in-law and 3 beautiful grandchildren that we love with all our hearts. You’ll see lots of them.

You will also see that we are HUGE DISNEY FANS!!! Dale and I are Disney Vacation Club members and have been to Disney many, many times over the years. We brought the boys when they were little and fell in love with it. Now that we have grand-kids we love it even more.
Don’t get me wrong…Dale and I spend lots of time there alone, just the two of us. We really enjoy the down time just relaxing by the pool, staying at different resorts, and dining out at a different restaurant every night.
