KariAnne writes the blog Thistlewood Farms from the back porch of her farmhouse tucked away in the rolling hills of Kentucky. She lives with her husband, four children, two dogs, two cats, a tortoise, a herd of deer, a family of rabbits and a salamander. KariAnne loves sweet tea with lime, mis-matched chairs, thunderstorms, crickets singing in the rain and walking at sunset with her knight-in-shining-armor. Thistlewood Farms was recently named Country Living Decorating Blog of the Year and has been featured in publications such as Country Living, Flea Market Decor, Hobby Farm Home, Celebrating Everyday Life and online outlets such as Apartment Therapy, Good Housekeeping On-Line, Resource Restyle and Country Living On-line.
