Chelle & Kenny Ellis

Hi, I’m Chelle Ellis!  🙂  I’m a retired commercial artist, turned painter/printmaker and art instructor, but spend the majority of my time creating an eclectic and unique environment in our home.  People who visit our home often remark how artistic and welcoming it feels, while reflecting our personalities.

We recently bought our dream house: a 3,149 square foot colonial revival in Coldwater, Mississippi.  If you think it couldn’t get any better, it does!  There are two additional buildings behind the house:  a giant workshop for Kenny, and a old carriage house that we will convert into my painting and printmaking studio.


This is my husband, and honey-do-er, Kenny Ellis, who has his own blog in the links above for the beefier projects.  Kenny is a retired air traffic controller and my own renaissance man.  We’ve been tackling projects together for 18 years but Miss Sadie’s Place will be our swan song!

Keep up with our progress by subscribing to our email list, which can be found at the bottom of every page.

Come join in the journey of our life!  We hope you will find the experience of our renovation inspirational and as magical as we have!
