2017 ladder shelf in entry-6446

This super quirky 2 ladder shelving in the entry was all thanks to yet ANOTHER closet redo. Remember the post about the cheap closet kit in my son’s room? The same treatment was done in our little entryway closet, and this was the result. I can’t seem to find the before picture, so I’ll spare you […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’ve mentioned no less than a bazillion times how much I love snow. It’s very seldom we have a white Christmas on Canada’s west coast. And I’m not entirely sure we will this year. But, what are the chances of right before leaving on a tropical getaway, we are BLASTED with a blizzard? Low! It’s […]

This was a project I didn’t intend to blog about. But after putting up this photo on Instagram, quickly taken with my iPhone, the interest was huge! So I felt maybe it was worthwhile sharing with you here, for those struggling with gift ideas. We needed 4 gifts, and finding out the recipients loved Starbucks, […]

In November, I picked up the Stocksund sofa and two chairs from Ikea. My 20 year old (bad) junk just had to go. But being cautious me, I purchased the new stuff and put it together before I got rid of the old. All in the same room. At the same time. Goodness. This place […]

Every Christmas, I love to dream up a new hot cocoa bar idea. Blame it on our currently blustery weather! It. Is. COLD. And we west coaster Canadians aren’t use to it. So this year, a cheater idea came to mind. How about a toolbox shelf? I love not having to build everything from scratch […]

I love love LOVE snow! As long as I don’t have to drive in it of course… But I think my love for snow stems from growing up on the dairy farm. A snow day flat out meant it was time to hook up the toboggan behind the tractor, with Dad towing us for rounds […]
