Easter is just around the corner, and I’m scrambling to get things ready! I’m hosting the family dinner this year, and of course, being me, I want everything to be perfect.
It would have been easier to just re-create this floral centrepiece that I made last year, but what’s the fun in that? I put those faux florals to use in a different way this year, and realized that I really needed a substantial arrangement for my coffee table. Continue reading
Spring is my favourite season of all! The weather warming up after a long, cold, dark winter; the birds returning; the snow melting; and the whole earth returning to life. . . It just fills me with joy every time! Continue reading
My little A turned 4 last year, and she told me she wanted a Ladybug Birthday Party!
I started checking Pinterest for ideas right away, and believe me, this is a very popular party theme for little girls! There are loads of ideas out there, so it’s not so much a matter of figuring out what to do; it’s a matter of choosing which ideas you like best. And, of course, which ones fit your budget!

I can’t knit. Okay, I can knit, my Mom taught me how, but I hate it. All of that counting drives me crazy! I’m really not a fan of arts or crafts that involve too much math, but I am a huge fan of cable-knit pillow covers for my winter decorating. I’ve been drooling over them for years, but couldn’t afford the $40 (or more) price tag.
Living in an A-frame house, I have very few vertical walls on which I can hang art or photos. It makes me sad, but it also causes me to really appreciate the walls I do have.
One of these vertical walls is in my stairwell, and there is just enough of a ledge at the top for me to put an EXPEDIT bookcase from IKEA. I love to create seasonal displays on top of the bookcase, as if it were a fireplace mantel, and hang things on the bit of wall above it. Continue reading
