It’s that time again! It’s almost Christmas and I’ve been busy decking the halls around here. This week, I’m part of the Canadian Bloggers Christmas Home Tour. (You can see my 2015 Red Plaid Cottage Christmas Home Tour here and my 2014 French Inspired Christmas Home Tour here.) This week you can visit nearly 20 Canadian homes all decked out for… Read More
Hello friends! And, yay, it’s finally Fall! This past week, I’ve been doing some early Fall decorating with hydrangeas. When September hits, I usually grab my stash of store-bought pumpkins and acorns. But, since there’s nothing quite as pretty as decorating with hydrangeas, I headed to the garden. Funny, I’ve always been reluctant to cut my hydrangeas off the tree. Perhaps that’s because,… Read More
Happy New Year, friends! By now, I’m sure you’re all back into your regular routines, with all the Christmas sparkle packed away for another year. It comes and goes so quickly, doesn’t it?

Do you decorate for Halloween? It seems that Halloween is either a love it or hate it kind of holiday. Before I had kids, I didn’t love Halloween. Like, at all. You might even say I hated it. (Gasp) I didn’t decorate for Halloween, except maybe a sad, lonely pumpkin on the front step. Back then, Halloween just meant having to rush home from work (where I basically lived before having kids) just to pass out candy to strangers. But times change. These days we now we live on a cul de sac of 30+ kids. In a neighbourhood of 132,549 kids. (OK, maybe I exaggerate, but it seems like it some days). And, we have 3 kids of our own. Now, I’m a Halloween convert. I have to be, lol.
