Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Memories. Isn’t it neat how some of them you hold so vividly? Although I only have a single one of my Great Grandma Phyllis… it’s a very strong one, and neatly so this antique dresser that once belonged to her is very much a part of that recollection I hold. It was summertime. I was… Continue reading Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Since my teen years, I have spent much of my time at a keyboard. Computer work has always come naturally to me, and is likely my best skill… what started-off as keyboarding, led to word processing, to then desktop publishing, to then (and still today) web development and design. Although my ‘beloved’ computer is work… Continue reading Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Two Souls in One

My hubs came picking with me one day a few weeks ago… and despite my lack of desire for this antique librarian’s desk, he loaded it up… thinking he knows me better than I do. “You’ll for sure do something great with it!”โ€””Nope… I don’t want it.” ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป “Yes you do.”โ€””No, I really don’t.” ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ… Continue reading Two Souls in One

Patient & Persistent Bedroom Makeover

22+ years I’ve shared a bedroom with my sweetheart… cozy in a queen we certainly have been. Furnished with a handmade suite made for my hubs when he was a young boy… incredibly solid, ridiculously heavy, and unpleasantly 80’s style. Just the thought of me wanting to replace it caused a rift between us… and… Continue reading Patient & Persistent Bedroom Makeover

Simple n’ Sweet Tallboy

Open the windows, put away your snow shovel, and switch your hot coffee to iced folks… because spring is definitely here! And with spring comes… lots of dog poop to pick up in the yard?!

My Serenity Bench

Serenity for the most part has almost always come quite easily to me… a life of manageable worries, so many simple pleasures, and an abundance of blessings. In the past few weeks however, finding serenity has abruptly become an endeavour. My hope and prayer is for us all to find things that make us smile… Continue reading My Serenity Bench
