Decluttering and Organizing – Pantry & Bathroom. And some Mantle Love

Hello there. It's clean-up week around here. Even though I clean my house every day, I couldn't believe how the dust and grime had accumulated, especially in the dining-room and kitchen!

Sometimes It’s the Little Things – New Projects, Pantry Re-organization & Coffee Table-scapes

Coffee Tablescape

Hello friends. Yesterday, I had the most lovely Sunday that I've had in a long time. No over-ambitious meal prep for the week (well, I made my lunches, but that was it!), no rushing around trying to squeeze a week's worth of housework into 2 hours, just a "it'll get done when it gets done" attitude … Continue reading Sometimes It’s the Little Things – New Projects, Pantry Re-organization & Coffee Table-scapes

Christmas Decorations are Finally Up!

Christmas tree

Hello all. I hope you've all had a good start to the week. I finally got my Christmas tree up and a few decorations.

A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

I know I've said it before, but organizing never really ends, does it? Just when I think I have it all figured out ... I never really do. I was doing a bit of a mini spring clean in my kitchen last weekend and saw a few things I could improve upon. The cupboard under … Continue reading A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

Ikea Hack: Patio Dining Set Makeover – Beachy, Greek Island Look

Hello everyone! Spring has been slow to arrive here in Vancouver ... and she still seems to be having a bit of a problem, but we are at least getting sunshine every other day (or so), which is nothing to sneeze at.

Chair Makeover in an Afternoon

Hello all. I love turning stuff nobody wants into something beautiful - or repurposing my own stuff. A few months ago we found this chair sitting next to a dumpster outside a thrift store. We had been looking for a chair for our bedroom and when I saw this one, looking sad and rejected, I … Continue reading Chair Makeover in an Afternoon

Hello Lovely Readers and happy Monday!! It's raining here (again). We actually had a bit of a break on Saturday and we took the opportunity to visit lovely Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver.

I've been wanting one for a … Continue reading Weekend Project – Ikea Hack: Kitchen Island to Drinks Trolley

How I Organized My Closet

Hi everyone. Our bedroom closet was starting to become messy again. With Spring just around the corner (I hope somebody tells Mother Nature soon), I thought today would be a good day to do some reorganization. Uugh - you see what I mean, right? The only thing I bought for this project was a shoe rack. … Continue reading How I Organized My Closet
