Surviving the storm and trimming the shrubs

read

The other night, the wind was absolutely howling through our little valley leaving me surprised any tree was left standing. But you can bet this blogger-nerd was on top of it! I ran out there barefoot my iPhone and captured a true Instagram Stories moment filming the willow tree out back swaying like crazy. It was gorgeous actually. Sidenote: […]

Lessons from the fall rain

read

I’m beginning to appreciate the many layers of fall. It seems like yesterday that I was moping about the heat of summer leaving us. It packed its shades and sunscreen and just flat out left our country seemingly overnight, leaving leaves all over the place in complete haste. The nerve! I guess that meant while I moped about being home […]

Buffalo check and Plaid placemats for a fall or everyday table

read

I really do love my big metal kitchen island that also doubles as a table. And I also really love my pallet wood sawhorse office desk where a kitchen table would normally go.  All that works in this house. It really does. However I secretly miss having a kitchen table at times. I’m picturing a big […]

Imagine ALL your all season home decor items having the ability to magically morph into full out fall or Christmas with the snap of your fingers.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to get rid of the big boxes of Christmas we only use 1 month out of the entire year? Only to use things we use every day instead? Yes… why yes it […]

Welcome Fall quirky reclaimed wood pumpkin sign

This summer when I painted my front door Bayberry green, I was soooo looking forward to playing with fall and Christmas decor against it! It’s such a lovely natural moss green tone that just seems to go with anything. Nature never fails as inspiration, does it? So blame this project on my 2nd Starbucks pumpkin […]

I knew it would happens soon. The wind was starting to kick up, and the grapevine was turning vibrant! But in no time, every leaf would be gone. So it was time to RUN outdoors to take one last shed shoot of the season… fall style. But what enticed me out there the most was a recent, […]

Landing the great fall pumpkin and chrysanthemum mother lode

I’m pretty sure I’ve said more than once I don’t really go all out for fall decorating. I don’t know why. I ADORE the season in BC, along with the crisp, cool air, comfort foods, good excuses to pick up a fav latte, (pumpkin spice, half the flavour, topped with whip cream please) and layered, cozy clothing […]

Interchangeable FALL FARM reclaimed wood coat hook shelf

read

I get asked all the time, “Are you coming out with any fall themed stencils?” Whoops. 🙂 Well, we do have APPLE FARM. But specific fall themed, not yet. I nearly did, but instead, we focused on our most requested all season designs, Laundry, Pantry, and Farmhouse. So… that left me with only one thing to do. Figure […]

Industrial FARMHOUSE window valance sign and table sized stencils

read

My ultimate dream home is a white farmhouse, with a wrap around porch, in the middle of a few rolling hills, with a creek or lake out back. Isn’t that a wonderful vision? Thing is, the farmhouse craze is currently alive and well all over the land. So, due to many requests, it was time to bring […]
