It’s always nice to get a project ticked off the list and this time it was hanging the beautiful art prints I received from Minted over our living room sofa. Thank goodness our bare walls are gone…
Hello there! If you follow along on Facebook, you may have seen the call out for reader questions a few weeks ago. To those of you who emailed me, thank you! I really do enjoy seeing what you’re up to.
Unfortunately, I can’t get to each and every one of those questions today. No need to fret! The design and decorating (and other) dilemmas you’re currently facing help me plan future blog posts, as well as social media content, so I encourage you to continue following along […]
Hello all, and welcome to Day 3 of the Canadian Bloggers’ Christmas Home Tour. Before I show you around our home all decorated for the holidays, I want to send a big shout out to my friend Christina from The DIY Mommy for organizing this lovely event. As well, we can’t forget to thank this year’s participants for allowing us to take a peek inside their homes […]
One of the projects I looked forward to most this holiday season was decorating our mantel. Although we had completed our living room makeover last November, I was suffering from renovation burnout and barely mustered up enough energy to put up a tree and wrap gifts. With all of that behind us now, I’m having fun coming up with fresh new ideas for the Christmas decorations we already had on hand, as well as some recent decor finds […]

Hello all! Have you noticed the sudden transition to fall? After Labour Day Weekend, it’s as though we’ve forgotten all about summer and are ready for chunky sweaters, plaid throws and pumpkin spice anything.
Although autumn is a season I adore, I like to slow things down a bit. You know, hang on to weekend picnics, afternoon coffee on the patio, and BBQ dinners with friends for just a bit longer […]
How is your summer going? I can’t believe it’s mid-July already. With renovations happening in full force around here, I sometimes forget which season we’re in- ugh! I think I’ve finally decided on all of the finishes and have most of my ducks in a row (hopefully). Perhaps, now, I can begin to enjoy a […]
Welcome to week two of the OUTDOOR EXTRAVAGANZA! Be sure to check out my trash to treasure tool box planters if you missed last week’s Plants & Flowers party. This time, it’s all about Decorating & Entertaining al fresco style. Over the weekend, we planned on having an outdoor get-together. Then, the forecast called for […]
During the Christmas season, I like to keep decorating around our house simple. Aside from our tree and a few tchotchkes, most of our decor is winter-themed rather than Christmas per se. I began this a few years ago when it didn’t feel quite right to start pulling Christmas decor out in early November. However, […]
