Our boys’ bedroom was in MUCH need of a refresh! A refresh that could very easily cost us a bundle OR cost us very little. I prefer the latter myself, so that’s what we rolled with! 😉 I started off with giving his walls a fresh new coat of paint… Ripped out the dirty old… Continue reading A Tallboy for My Tall Boy
I’m a lil’ sista… to 2 older brothers… all 3 of us were born within a 28-month period. Yes, apparently that’s very possible, and our parents might have been a lil’ crazy at the time… or naive, or brave… or newly in love. ❤ Being the only lil’ sista to big brothers comes with many… Continue reading Play it Lil’ Sista
Somewhere along the way, we decided we wanted to do it all and do it all perfectly. We uphold the perfect image, raise perfect children, and chase perfect dreams on perfect journeys.

My girl Jenn has been waiting on me for MONTHS to transform a couple bedroom dressers for her. The wait however isn’t ALL my fault. Here’s the thing — Jenn simply can’t make up her mind. 😏 First she wanted the colour ‘Bee’s Knees’, then ‘Cheesecake’, then ‘Vanilla Frosting’, and most recently ‘Jitterbug’. I however can’t… Continue reading JUST for YOU my girl!

I’ve acquired many personal shoppers in the past few months — my Mom, some sis-in-laws, my couster… heck, I even have one of my daughters’ teenage friends keeping her eye open for thrift finds for me! Ha! And I thought I’d never have a personal shopper!… Continue reading Enchanting Corner Hutch
What makes your ❤ beat fast, your palms sweat, your knees weak, and your breathing rapid? Well for me, it’s my Farmer (a.k.a. my hubby)! There’s jus’ somethin’ about a strong, hard-workin’ man covered in mud, oil, and cow s#!t that does it for me! And on the rare occasion that he gets all cleaned… Continue reading Abandoned Farmhouse Writing Desk
Although I do love my perennial garden, and I enjoy annuals in the years I find the time and $ to put some in… my favourite flowers are wildflowers. ❤ You see, wildflowers don’t have to be planted precisely and in the right type of soil, they’re not delicate — very robust rather, they’re not… Continue reading Country chic character and sweet imperfections
My 43rd birthday recently passed by, and although I certainly didn’t need, want or expect any gifts — as always my Mom asked me “What would you like for your birthday?”… and as always my response was “Absolutely nothing Mom, I got everything I need, nothing that I don’t.” AND… as always my Mom got… Continue reading I got everything I need, nothing that I don’t
