When one simple thing gets published

read

It never gets old, friends. I was over the moon DELIGHTED when Somerset Home desired to publish my funky little potting shed sign on the shed. Life sure has a funny way of working itself out. A little behind the scenes mentality… This project started out as a means of introducing some garden themed stencils to […]

Beating the Feb blues with a winter bike ride

read

Today I really felt the February blues. I’m generally not an unhappy person, but drizzly days can leave you feeling less than inspired. I flicked on the TV, and started munching a few chips, when I realized… yikes. That’s true hibernation right there. Glancing outside, I noted it was attempting to rain. Sigh… I’ve really been […]

The epic winter my wish came true

read

I do love my snow. But after our last snowfall (right when I was attempting to take off for Maui over Christmas), I really thought that was it for us. But I was soooooo wrong. After my return, over the course of 3 days, 80 cm (pretty much 3 feet) hit us. And for BC’s west […]

A new stance on cleaning… one new thing.

read

Front entry tour This past week, I’ve been in a bit of a funk about the topic of cleaning. A typical clean spree would have me focusing on one thing, then pushing hard until it’s done.

3 ways to use a reclaimed wood salvaged junk heart

read

I keep wanting to refer to our record breaking current snow weather. When it kinda takes over your life, it’s hard for it not to be on your constant radar. Since Friday, we started getting dumped on. In 3 days, we had over 80 cm, or 31″. For a place that is use to mowing their […]

A quick closet clean up. Or two.

If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories, you’ll know we got a massive dump of snow over the weekend. This is kinda big news for the west coast of BC. We are accustomed to super mild winters, where you can mow your lawn pretty much 12 months out of the year. But not so lately. […]
