Industrial pipe and reclaimed wood mini coffee station


Well, I’m pretty proud of myself! It’s only Jan 4th, and I’ve already done a new project! Truth be told, I was cleaning the kitchen, and everything just looked ‘tired’. As in, I was sick of looking at all the same stuff. So I came up with this Industrial pipe, and reclaimed wood mini coffee […]

Risky back roading to Hana and Grandma’s Coffee House


Remember when I told you about losing my camera last time I was in Hawaii? This round, I safely removed the SD card from the camera before travelling home. How smart am I!

Rustic reversible coasters and others for gifts


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, […]

Stencilled snowflake pillow on the new sofa


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 […]
