  • 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[...]
  • Giving old halloween decor new life with spray paint

  • Three cheers for spray paint! Seriously. Ever since I spray painted a turquoise pair of high top converse orange with spray paint in grade four I've been in love. I mean, it's almost magical. It was THIS...and now it's THAT. It was ugly orange and way too 'halloween' for my more 'Harvest' style decor, and now it's pretty and copper. Magical I tell you. Two of the fun items used to decora[...]
  • Fall Home Tour & Harvest Decorating #CBHomeTour

  • Here's the thing about blogging, it's addictive. And so is styling up pretty little areas of the house. Over the years my fall decorating has definitely increased and this year is no exception! It's definitely my most decorated fall so far. (For a trip down memory lane, check out my fall decorating evolution from three years ago, two years ago, and last year.) Which is why I am so excite[...]
  • Project Guest Room #TheSequel REVEAL @Alexanians_Com

  •   The guest room is finally done!  Need to review the previous posts to see where we started? click HERE and HERE . I never really thought of myself as a squealer.  You know, one of those girls who makes annoying noises like some tortured chipmunk?  Not me. Until this week.  I squeal every time I walk past the guest room. Every single time. Yes, the paint looks fabulous.  Yes, [...]
  • Dear 2015, Let's Do This!

  • I greeted 2015 eagerly and optimistically, and I'm reading to go:) Which is a good thing, there's lots to do! It felt so good to take almost a month away from the online world.  I was even  entirely offline for eight glorious sun filled days in Cuba #heaven.  A digital detox of sorts.  The time away fueled me, gave me time to think, reflect, and focus on what this new year will bring. I[...]
  • Help me Love My Laundry Room

  • The kitchen is now bright and sunny.  The chairs in the dining room are simply fabulous, and now the latest upgrade our multi-purpose kitchen/dining/ and laundry, yes laundry room! received is an Electrolux Laundry IQ-Touch™ washer and dryer in the titanium colour option.  I can’t tell you how life altering these beautiful creatures are.  Actually, I can – but in a moment. Did you ever spy the [...]
  • 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[...]
  • Easy Holiday Pillows: Up-cycling old sweaters

  • I made some fun (and very easy!) holiday decor pillows last week...and even though they are a Christmas gift for someone special (Dad - don't spill the beans!) I just had to share them. If you're still hunting for a great gift, these took about 30 minutes each to make (once you had all your supplies) and are so unique!   I had four old pillows, which I used as the stuffing. A tr[...]
  • Mona Lisa #Selfie {an art project}

  • I just finished a super fun (and easy art project) for a friend and I am hesitant to let it go, I love it so much! A few weeks ago while out to lunch with my friend Isabelle, she asked me if I was up for a project. Naturally, my answer was YES!! When Isabelle bought her house, she found this Mona Lisa print in her basement. When I started to pull apart the frame, matting, and print, I discove[...]
  • 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[...]
