  • 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[...]
  • The Adventures of Tom & Shelley: Our to-do list

  • I love lists. Making a list is equally as rewarding as crossing things off said list. Especially when they're fun projects. Don't tell DH, 'cus I think he thinks these projects are less exciting for me because I don't have free reign. Which is ALSO, what I think HE thinks. That I don't have free reign to do whatever on these projects. That I somehow will not get my way and his 'design' influ[...]
  • Clean crisp white bathroom

  • You know the feeling you get when you climb into bed with fresh sheets? That's the feeling I have in our bathroom ever since I re-painted it.  It's so fresh, so clean, so crisp....so lovely! And so very bright and white.  All the things a small upstairs bathroom should be. The bathroom was already white, but it wasn't pretty.  When we moved in, the room had white trim and bead board and the upp[...]
  • Vintage addition to main floor powder room

  • We were recently given what the generous gift giver thought was an antique bicycle pump. After some research online, I discovered it was a vintage garden sprayer. My guess is that you would connect a hose from your water basin and then pump the water out through the holes at the end. Kind of a like an old school super soaker. We both think it's quite lovely looking and so I put my brain to figu[...]
  • The List

  • We made a list. A big, grown-up list. A list of things that need to get done around our house (or property). On the list are relatively minor tasks like; 'paint bathroom pipe', and major ones, like 'build new shed'. All require time, most require cash money. Oh the pains of being a grown-up! Being me, and generally sitting on the positive side of the fence, I saw some opportunities to paint, to [...]
  • Kitchen revamp reveal: PARAPaints Plantain Chips PF52

  • It's done! Our entire open concept kitchen/dining room is now a fabulously bright and cheery yellow, PARA Paints' colour of the year Plantain Chips PF52 ! This project took a lot longer than I would ideally like...but that's life! Instead of being home painting, I was either eating alligator for the first time in Atlanta or falling in love with watermelon mojitos in Mexico, so really I'm okay with[...]
  • Rubber Ducky...You're the one

  • It's the first love song I knew the words to:) You can't help but smile when you hear it (or sing it!). Ever since the bathroom got a new mirror I've wanted to add something to the wall behind it. I wanted something subtle because the room is quite long and narrow and I still want your eye to travel to the window, not freeze on a large picture or colourful piece of art. I also wanted s[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Bathroom Mirror Update

  • Remember the fabulous mirror I found on the side of the road last weekend? I knew as soon as I found it I had found my bathroom mirror, so I couldn't wait to get going. I finally found the time today, and I'm super pleased. This is the bathroom the way it was before I swapped the mirror out. I love the old claw foot tub with its gold claws, and of course the original 1898 hardwood floors.[...]
