Hello and welcome! We’re Tim & Mary Vidra, the faces behind 17Apart. We’re so glad you stopped by today and hope you’ll visit often.
Living and working in Richmond, Virginia, we’re both do-it-yourselfers by nature and continually in search of simple solutions for living more sustainably — here on the blog we love sharing what we’ve been up to lately along with tips & tricks for DIY home decor, urban gardening and cooking.
While the blog name is a nod to our age difference, this is a space where we hope to share the things we’re passionate about, give a peek into our own version of what sustainable living means to us, and offer up a few surprises from time to time. Age is just a number, right? While we may be a generation apart, it turns out we’ve found it’s those differences we once worried might break us apart that are actually the glue keeping us together and laughing at ourselves — or maybe it’s just our shared Hungarian heritage (turns out we’re both southerners with Hungarian lineage). Whatever the case may be, we’ve kept smiling together for 13 years, married for 3 of them.
In a typical day you’ll find Mary behind the computer screen, working in Merchandising for Etsy Inc., while you’ll find me photographing a current food project, working on developing a new recipe for my food blog, Tim Vidra Eats, or venturing out to explore a local estate sale.
When not behind the computer screen or spending time with our blended family, you’ll find us working to restore and decorate the historic Richmond city home where we live, cultivating the small urban space we call a garden, checking out a local auction or flea market, indulging in a new eat spot or planning for our next travel adventure. Of course our beloved 6 year old Weimaraner, Basil, (also known as velcro-dog around here), is usually around to partake in the fun.
As you may have already gathered, we share a penchant for repurposing, exploring, heritage & the thrill of the hunt — and have channeled that energy into not only finding unique pieces to decorate our home with, but opening an Etsy vintage shop where we share and offer many more finds from the southern estates, auctions and flea markets we frequent. Mary’s background in jewelry lends itself to the smallest of treasures and heirlooms we come across, which often find themselves rescued and reworked into wearables, available in her Etsy jewelry shop.
In addition to the projects and recipes we share here on the blog, we’ve been thrilled to have our work regularly featured by the likes of Country Living, Apartment Therapy, Buzzfeed and Reddit — and have enjoyed the opportunity to guest contribute for publications like eHow, Tasting Room, Relay Foods & Etsy.
