  • Traditional Christmas Decor Home Tour #CBHomeTour

  • When it comes to Christmas decor I am all about tradition. Our tree looks almost identical year after year, and each year I love taking the time to hang each and every ornament, all of which have a story. I know where (or from whom) every single one came from. With 13 married Christmases, our tree of memories gets more full each year and I love it. Welcome to our Christmas home tour, pa[...]
  • Christmas trees & traditions

  • Christmas is definitely a time of year for traditions. Both for celebrating old ones and creating new ones. A tradition in my family is the tradition of cutting down our Christmas tree. Whether it was with my Mom and step Dad, or my Dad and step Mom, the drive to the tree farm and the adventure that ensued was always amazing. Being a family of two, DH and I continued that tradition heading[...]
  • Simple cedar Christmas decor

  • Not much progress on the DIY Diva Den this week, other than finding the perfect legs to raise the desk up. What did get done around the house was a little decorating for Christmas. This year I opted for cedar and gold, and I love the simplicity (and the smell!). The pink walls work so nicely with all the green too! (much better than last year's mantle too!) I am so in love with the littl[...]
  • Christmas around the house

  • The Christmas decorations are up! We go to cut down our tree this coming weekend. Can't wait! I'll be sure to share a picture once it's done:) I ended up changing around the mantle as a result of the newly painted living room. With the bold wall, it need to be simpler. The Nutcrackers moved to the hall table beside the gold tree, and I love them there. And...when the first of December[...]
  • DIY Christmas...part 1

  • I've mentioned before that a little inspiration and a sunshine-y day (perfect for working outside) are all I need to get a fun DIY project done. This weekend that inspiration came in the form of an old window, some spray paint, and gingerbread latte. Remember the window I mentioned in my Para Paints #ParaBlogCrew application? Well, it and some old nutcrackers I got at a garage sale a few years[...]
  • My Wayfair wishlist of awesome home goods

  • You know the old expression, if wishes were horses then beggars would ride? We'll, I've updated it. I'd redecorate. I have no immediate plans to do so, but it's always nice to dream. Well...if I'm being honest our second floor bathroom is closer than I think to an update, but that's for another day. Let's stick to dreaming shall we? Dreaming of having no budget, dreaming of pretty things to mak[...]
  • Looking back & looking forward

  • I am totally bamboozled that another year has come and gone! That makes four full years here at Heatherinheels.com - can we spell out B A N A N A S together please?! So with that in mind I thought we could take a little trip down the 2016 memory lane and also look forward to what 2017 will bring. I would have trouble nailing down my favourite project, but I have to say my top three favo[...]
  • Easy Arm Knit Reading Blanket #12MonthsofDIY

  • There really is nothing nicer than a warm blanket, a hot cup of tea, and a good book especially on a cold winter day. One of my favourite places to curl up and read is in DH's office, but it was always missing the perfect 'chair blanket'. That problem has been solved thanks to our #12MonthsofDIY yarn sponsor, Lion Brand Yarns. I knew almost immediately once our December yarn theme was pic[...]
  • DIY Floral and Paper Decoupage Mirror #12MonthsofDIY

  • This project was SUCH fun to make and horrible to photograph. But let's start at the fun part shall we?:) The theme for November's #12MonthsofDIY is paper and immediately my brain went to a half finished roll of some very pretty wrapping paper I've had stashed in my hoard. You should SEE the amazing projects the rest of the gang created. (Full links at the bottom.) As it happens, my [...]
  • DIY Sunglasses Storage & Display Organizer #12MonthsofDIY

  • Take a look at this drawer and tell me you don't one have one exactly like it in your house. We all do. Ours is in the kitchen. Yours might be there too. Even if it's not though, you know where it is. And just thinking about it is making your cringe, isn't it? Don't fret my friends. I am here to help. That drawer is now empty. All thanks to my handy dandy DIY Sunglasses storage [...]
  • Powder Room Makeover Plans

  • The main floor powder room is headed for a makeover! It's been a little over four years since I ripped out the ugly brown painted textured wallpaper and gave the room it's first makeover. So naturally, it's time for another:) This room gets used a lot. Not just by us (supervised of course by the dogs), but by guests at dinner parties. And it's also a room I like to decorate at Christmas and[...]
