Firing up the boy’s bedroom once again


In my past few posts, I’ve sorda hinted that I’ve been doing a TON of purging and cleaning up, but little to show for it. In all honestly, I’ve started so many unfinished things, the weather has been dictating what I continue with next. When it’s nice, I’m cranking up the curb appeal with pruning, pressure […]

First impressions of Kauai, and our condo


Hanalei Valley Overlook Oh goodness you guys… I have started so many good ‘fires’ at home, but with no middle nor ends, blog posts just can’t really happen yet. From purging to painting to tree pruning to house washing to dump runs to selling stuff to gutting my son’s room for a new makeover, there […]

Third generation reclaimed wood coffee tray


I think it’s pretty safe to say, I am a true blue repurpose-aholic. I just took a quick look around my home, attempting to spot something brand new.

My glamping in the mountains weekend

Kawkawa Lake Eco Retreat Getaway

We have officially hit fall in our region. But rather than decorate the house to the hilt for the season, there was something else on my agenda I desired more. And that was head for the hills before our rain started. When it rains in BC, it doesn’t mess around. We can be buried for WEEKS with […]

Frothy homemade iced coffee with simple ingredients


When we were in Hawaii this past summer, iced coffee became a daily habit. Would you believe I had never had one before, other than an iced cappuccino from Tim Horton’s? I didn’t really get how cold coffee on ice could be good. I liked mine steaming hot, with sugar and real cream, thankyouverymuch! Well, […]

A freshly weeded Farmers’ Market junk flower bed. For now.


You guys… I did something totally spontaneous this past weekend, that I cannot wait to blog about! I even bought another point and shoot camera for the trip (after having lost my last one on our Hawaiian vacay). I needed some mountain time before fall hit hard, so I head for the hills for a […]

Purging gets fun, thanks to my new bidding site hobby

old market sign

Old sign playroom Sign went for $115 When I came home from Hawaii this past summer, while the holiday blues didn’t hit, one thing sure did. I noticed I flat out had too. much. stuff. I knew this of course before the trip. You know how you keep replaying the same thing in your head, “I […]
