Hello, my lovely friends. I haven’t been around as much as usual over the past couple of months. I’ve missed you guys. Winter isn’t a season when I take on many new diy projects. Because, well, two words: Winter and Canada. Friends, in Canada, winter is cold. There’s snow. And ice. And freezing rain. That means things like sanding wood and… Read More
I always like to put a pretty Valentines Day wreath on the front door during the month of February. I am sure that, to some, this might seem like an unnecessary effort just to celebrate one not-so-big-occasion in the middle of winter. But it’s actually a simple little fix, and one that brings me a bunch of joy. For starters, I like… 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? I really enjoyed our red plaid cottage-inspired Christmas decor this year, but I have to admit that I was perfectly content when the time came to put it away. After… Read More
Earlier this week, I decorated a Disney Frozen Christmas tree as a fundraiser in my kids’ school, inspired by the movie. For the past 4 years, I’ve decorated a tree that is put up on tickets at the school’s annual bake sale. The lucky winner has the tree delivered to them fully decorated in mid-December, and the funds raised go… Read More
Hello friends! How have you been? It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been a busy little beaver decorating for Christmas around here. Yup, I’m one of those people who decorates for Christmas in November. Sorry if you are still doing Fall and pumpkins and all that jazz. In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in early October, so I… Read More
Happy 2015,my lovelies! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. I took an extended break from blogging for a month or so to relax with my sweet family. Now that all the Christmas decorations are finally down – and all the peppermint chocolate’s been eaten (booo) – it’s time to get back to real life! I stole some… Read More
So. Apparently, it’s Spring.
You know…that season between Winter and Summer where tulips begin to peek through the soil? Kinda like this…
- The scene in our back garden since December.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not bitter. I’m totally happy for any of you who are basking in Spring weather. (OK, so maybe that was written with a hint of sarcasm ;-).) Spring comes late here at the best of times. It’s usually June (as in, almost Summer) before we can expect consistent Spring weather. But this particular Winter it’s been seriously never-ending. I think Mother Nature is enjoying all this ‘Frozen’ hype just a little too much.
Even after two weeks of beach and sunshine (thank you Florida), my sanity is still hanging in the balance. READ MORE
So have you have enough of Winter – or should I say, the Polar Vortex – yet?!?
- One of our snow angels, at 16 months.
It even got frosty in the southern United States this winter – crazy stuff. Here in Canada, I’m used to freezing temperatures and snow this time of year. But the Polar Vortex has made for an even colder Winter than usual.
I wish I could say that I enjoy Winter, but this Canadian is not a Winter girl. I need a little motivation to get through the first few months of the year. So I thought I’d share my 10 favorite Winter products that make the cold more tolerable around here. (Note: I’m not being paid to endorse them; I just love them.)
1. Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf
This Lululemon scarf is definitely a favorite Winter product, and it’s one of my best READ MORE HERE!
