  • Money Pit Adventures

  • Have you thought to yourself, "where TF is Heather? I wonder what DIY projects she's up to...". Well, this ain't no DIY people. No no. For this BIG project we called in the big guns. Yes, our Money Pit is getting some serious love. Serious serious love. Built in 1898, not all of the stewards of this beautiful home have treated it with as much care as we have. There have been shortcuts.[...]
  • The Adventures of Tom & Shelley: Meet DH

  • Drum roll please..... After four long years it's time for you to get to know DH. Isn't he dreamy?! #luckygirl Let's start with the basics - as in, his real name is actually handsome Brian. I call him Bri most of the time. Just like he calls me Heath. We're Bri & Heath. Yes, we're that annoying. Here' us at our wedding almost 13 years ago. When he's not busy telling [...]

  • Project Guestroom

  • Our guestroom was the first room I did anything to. The rest of the house (except the main powder room) was a colour I like to call “sell my house beige”. Boooooring. But the guestroom, well ….. it was something special. It was this. (yes, that’s about four loads of laundry waiting to be folded) I am not sure what redeeming quality anyone ever saw in this wallpaper ….ever, but wow. It w[...]
  • A little bit about me

  • My name is Heather. I like heels, dressing up, sweatpants, my rubber boots, getting my hair done, doing DIY projects, cooking, eating, taking photos, and painting. I am woman of many talents and interests. This list doesn’t even begin to cover it. This blog may, it may not. I think of my barbecue as an extension of my kitchen. Note the MY. By day I work in Public Relations. I have[...]
