Hi, Welcome to Little House of Four.  

I'm, Katie.  The girl behind the blog and owner of Vintage By LHOF.  

I'm just an average girl who loves a good deal, transforming furniture, unique vintage finds and creating a beautiful affordable DIY project at a time!


- Dreams are worth chasing.

- Anything is possible if you put in the work.

- You will never please everyone, so stop trying.

- If you are around people who don't encourage, support and congratulate you then you are around the wrong support staff.   

- Inexpensive doesn't have to mean cheap. 

- You are responsible for your own happiness. 

- Creating a beautiful home takes time.  Appreciate the process and enjoy the journey. 

- Your home should be filled with what you love, no matter the style. 

I love

- My family 

- Vintage, modern and industrial styles

- The thrill of the hunt 

- Filling my home with what I love

- Green 

- Staying up late and regretting it the next morning

  1. Hi Katie! I'm Katie from View From The Fridge and we're featuring you and all your fabulousness tomorrow, but I wanted to tell you how much we apparently have in common ... #1. Our names #2. We each have a son named Owen #3. I am a dog lover TO THE MAX and #4. We both have a dog named Molly (though ours is a Vizsla). Can't wait to learn more about you and share your projects tomorrow!!

    1. Hey Katie! Wow, we do have a lot in common! Thank you so much for featuring me and I really look forward to learning more about you and following along on your blog! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. New follower here so I thought I'd say hi! We are similar in many ways...long marriages, older daughter who loves to create, and an energetic son (but mine is almost 9 months). I worry about mine, thinking a few hospital visits will happen to us too. Looking forward to exploring your blog. :)

    1. Hey Megan! Thanks so much for stopping by to say Hi! I love that we have so much in common. I was a second child and a complete handful. My second being a boy is definitely giving me a run for my money and is like me in so many ways. So, I guess I can't complain too much :) I hope your son doesn't follow in my son's footsteps and hopefully he stays out of the hospital!

  3. A fellow successful stalker I see. Mine worked down the hall from me during grad school and I had my eye on him a year before we actually met :) I knew his truck number, timed picking up stuff off the printer, parked next to know, the usual ;)

    1. So glad I'm not alone. You totally made me laugh while reading your comment! Right after my husband and I started dating he would come into my work (Home Depot) and buy tons to tools and odds and ends that he didn't even need just to see me. So, I guess I wasn't the only one in our relationship doing the stalking! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  4. Hi Katie! I am a rookie Blogger and stumbled upon your page, and boy I am glad I did! I adore it, and not just because now I don't feel alone about stalking my now boyfriend ;)

  12. Hi Katie. I'm a Gramma and my 4 grandkids are 6 yr twin boys, 6 & 8 yr girls.
    I enjoy every minute I get with them. I want to try the Pumpkin Jars; but am baffled about the Pumpkin stems (as I haven't any old Target pumpkins laying around). Can I buy pumpkin stems? Or, how do you suggest I craft them? Thank you. You are a very creative young lady.

  13. Hi! I’m so glad I found your blog (through Pinterest). I love your style! It is the perfect combination of everything I love! I saw you describe your style and now I can’t find it. I recall you used the words “industrial.” How would you describe your style?

    1. Hey Becky! I'm so glad you stumbled upon my blog and enjoy my style. It's definetely a mix of modern industrial farmhouse. I'm kind of all over the place, ha!

  14. I LOVE your style and you are as cute as a button! I'm a new follower :)
