Rusty junk sign themed tool and paint stations


Today, I felt a need to play. I should have painted the boy’s bedroom, and I should have mowed the lawn, along with some flower bed weeding while it wasn’t pouring rain out for a change. But no. While still clamouring around in my pjs, I wandered to my newly cleaned up photo studio, desiring a more creative outlet. See what happens when […]

DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 350 Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific Happy blustery fall weekend to you! This past week, the wind has nearly blown off all the gorgeously coloured grapevine leaves before I got a decent photo shoot this year. It was just that fast.

Another epic junk shopping trip to Granny and Grumpa’s Antiques


When I took a trip down south several years ago, I was ASTOUNDED on the amount of junk and antiques the region has, compared to little ‘ol quiet BC, Oh Canada. While we don’t have many places to hunt in the lower mainland, (between Vancouver and Hope) there are three places I will always suggest to […]

Industrial FARMHOUSE window valance sign and table sized stencils

There is one room in my home I somehow continually succeed in avoiding. And that would be my laundry room. So when the requests kept coming to bring a LAUNDRY stencil design to life, I knew I had my work cut out for me. As it stands, the room wasn’t ready enough to try this new creation […]

Industrial farmhouse reclaimed wood and pipe pantry sign shelf


If you were to ask me what my dream pantry would look like, I envision this walk in type of bright white room, housed with reclaimed wood pipe shelves from floor to ceiling. Complete with a repurposed screen door, with a quaint PANTRY sign. Since I don’t have space for that dreamy pantry concept, I DO have space […]

The golden hour nature artist strikes again


After I returned home from an unexpected day spent in town, I glanced up towards the sky. It was still blue! There was still time. The forecast called for 3 intense storms, thanks to remnants of a typhoon. So I scrambled to get the lawn mowed as the sky started to gather a spotty appearance. As […]
