You got a bit of a sneak peak of this mobile a few days ago, but here’s the close ups! Since the baby is going to live in our room for the first several months, I wanted a mobile that we would also like to look at. I’m loving how it turned out! I don’t
The next four posts are some of my favourite DIY projects I’ve been up to for the baby. Having a baby basically gives you free realm to DIY stuff, pretty awesome! My very favourite project: my homemade Hudson’s Bay Blanket. Yup, starting in about April I learned how to knit. Because guys, it’s baby season.
Several weeks ago I talked about the pretty new handmade barnwood desks in our office. But I didn’t show you what the rest of the office is looking like. I completed the entire office redecoration project while the hubs was out of town at a wedding in mid-August. When he got home, we had undergone
One of my most popular instagrams is of my brand-spanking new chalkboard wall. And I’m kind of obsessed with it. I’ve wanted a chalkboard wall since … well since I got pinterest in early 2011. Maybe even earlier. But seriously, these little guys are so useful. Shopping lists. Meal planning. A clock. Motivational quotes. I’m
I’m always looking for fun (and nice looking) ways to store my jewellery that are not only esthetically pleasing, but practical too (if it’s not easy for me to put my necklace away, you can be sure that it is going to end up on the counter). I found these old frames on sale at
On Sundays, the North Market at the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is host to a weekly antique market. There are lots of expensive antiques, but if you dig and dig there are lots of deals to be had! Today I got some of the best. deals. ever. Period. (Ok, well, maybe not compared to
Remember in March when I told you all about out super cool wedding invites, and then I told you I would talk about all sorts of fun wedding stuff? Well, here you go, more fun wedding stuff! (Because our wedding was the best wedding ever. For reals yo.) Today I’m going to talk to you
I talked to my mom on the phone last night. She told me I need to blog more. She’s right, but after so many false starts over the last couple of months, it is kind of embarrassing to come back and expect you to like me just as much. Like one of my favourite food
I did I super fun project this weekend that drew its inspiration from all over. It was partially inspired by this “Five Dolla Art” post over on YHL, partially inspired by this Double Rainbow Pancakes post on The Girl Who Ate Everything, partially inspired by this Rainbow… post on Asthetic Outburst, partially inspired by St.
We got married on January 2, 2010, I loved our wedding, it was the best wedding ever. Ok, I’m pretty sure that is how everyone feels about their own wedding… but for real, ours was the best wedding ever. Since I didn’t have a personal blog during the wedding planning process, I’ve decided I’m going
I’m sure no one else is afflicted with the Friday afternoon syndrome, but let me tell you Friday afternoons sort of suck. They drag on and on and on. And you just want to be out of there! Last Friday was especially tough, it had been a brutal day and all I really wanted to
We have a teensy tiny little closet in our teensy tiny bedroom. The closet is so teensy tiny, in fact, that the hubs’ clothes live in our front hall closet; furthermore, its folding mirrored closet door is too big and makes it very hard to get into the back of the closet. Plus,
I get very very annoyed spending $1.99 a week on a bunch of cilantro, $1.99 a week on a bunch of italian parsley, and $2.99 a week on a teensy tiny little bag of chives. That’s about $7 a week that is mostly going to end up in a mushy mess in the garbage. So,
