INSPIRATION – VALENTINE’S DAY DECOR

Hi, friends! Valentine’s Day is approaching, and I haven’t really decorated for it much in the past, but this year I am feeling inspired to create a bit more. I have been looking around online and have come across some really fun DIY crafts, or just simple ways that you can add some Valentine’s themed items in with your regular decor. I thought I would share some of these finds with you today to hopefully inspire you as well! Continue reading “INSPIRATION – VALENTINE’S DAY DECOR”

WINTER FLORALS & COZY PILLOWS

I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, friends! It has been sunny here and the days are getting warmer (“warmer” for us here in the winter means anything above freezing). Though it makes the roads all mucky and slushy, I definitely am enjoying the sunshine.

Well, I had wanted to get to a winter home tour post for January, but I seem to have been spending a LOT more time outside of the house than in lately, which is actually a bit of a fulfilment for one of my goals for the year. Needless to say, I haven’t quite been able to pull everything together for it that I wanted to. I am also doing a collaborative spring home tour that I will be shooting photos for early-mid February, therefore setting up soon, so I thought I would save the home tour energy for that! However, I have wanted to talk about and share some winter florals I am loving Continue reading “WINTER FLORALS & COZY PILLOWS”

A FRESH NEW YEAR

Hi, friends! I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Christmas season. We spent time with both family and friends, and were able to relax a little at home by ourselves while Troy was off work. It was so great!
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it has been so nice to slow down a bit, get the house back in order, and contemplate what this brand new year should look like. I am typically not one to set New Year’s resolutions, as I feel that I always want (*ahem*…need) to be looking at areas where I can improve, and operate better in my life and in myself. I think reflecting on those things can Continue reading “A FRESH NEW YEAR”

CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS

Hi, friends. Can you believe that Christmas is in just a few days?! 5 sleeps, to be exact. I am so beyond excited. This past weekend we spent some time baking, watching a couple of Christmas movies, and planning a bit of what our time over the holidays will look like with friends and family. My heart is so full.

The last couple of years I have done blog posts on my gift wrapping ideas (here is 2015’s post and 2014’s post). Wrapping Christmas gifts is one of my favourite things, and I have so much fun sharing my gift wrap style with those who choose to read Continue reading “CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS”

COZY CHRISTMAS BEDROOM TOUR – 2016

Hi again, sweet friends. I hope you’re having a lovely week, and a great December so far. As always during this time of year, I am feeling so festive and ready for the holidays.
Today, I am happy to share our Christmas bedroom with you! It’s all cozy and dressed up for the season.
Part of why I love decorating, and why I put so much care into wanting to set up our house in a beautiful manner, is that I feel our homes should be a safe haven, and a place we find rest and retreat. It is so important to me that myself and my husband feel truly at home where we live, and that is why I just love to create a lovely and peaceful space. This is what I began pondering when thinking of bedroom decorating, as those are our primary places of rest! So, I thought what better time to chat about that than our Continue reading “COZY CHRISTMAS BEDROOM TOUR – 2016”

In preparation for that, I have teamed up with some wonderful bloggers to bring you a bunch of ideas and inspiration for your Christmas tablescape Continue reading “CHRISTMAS TABLESCAPE”

JOYFUL HOLIDAY HOME TOUR – 2016

Merry Christmas!!!
Okay, so I know we aren’t quite there yet, but I’m sure we are all gearing up for the holidays, and no doubt feeling the buzz and excitement that comes with the season. Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year for so many reasons. Watching fun Christmas movies while curled up on the couch with my husband… bundling up in scarves and boots and drinking hot apple cider while taking a walk in the cold winter air… getting to spend so much time with family and friends, while feeling joy in giving gifts and in sharing meals. It’s all so wonderful. I also feel fortunate Continue reading “JOYFUL HOLIDAY HOME TOUR – 2016”
