A Silver, Grey and White Christmas

While I decorated our dining room and front hallway in black, white and gold, I went with silver, grey and white in our family room and kitchen. A few years ago I went with this colour theme and have stuck with it ever since. I started with a base of ornaments and have slowly added […]

Here Comes Your Girl

Our daughter and her husband just celebrated their first anniversary this month. So, of course we’ve been looking at all the special memories from that day. So many things were created especially for them and I thought I’d share one of the small details. Our daughter, Katelyn wanted some natural elements of wood throughout their […]

Before & After

I love a good before and after shot. We moved into our home the first week of May 2016 and were painting full throttle to get the house ready for our daughter, Katelyn’s wedding shower that would be one month after our move in date. (Yes…I’m ambitious…I know! Or maybe crazy!!) Then shortly after the […]

Getting Started

For ages, my husband has been asking me what I want to do…don’t worry, I’ve been asking myself the same question since my 20’s! I enjoy doing such a variety of things that there is no “ONE THING” I want to dedicate all my time to. I like to mix it up, so sometimes it’s […]
