31 day series

Terrarium #1

I have done it! I have finally used the plants that have been sitting on top of my fridge for 2 months, and the rocks sitting in the bookcase just as long, and the vases I bought at Home Sense 3 weeks ago for some good (this round one was a whopping $7.99).  I have…

Milestone

I had a goal this month. Well, actually, I had two goals… one of them was to write 31 posts.  I almost made it, but not quite!  I will fulfill my 31 posts, though they will not all be in the month of October.  Sad.  My other goal was to reach 2000 visitors on my…

Master Bedroom Wish-list

It seems this week I am not actually doing anything around the house.  Wonder why that is?  Just take a look at this post about the new addition to our house, and it’s enough said – Luther takes up a lot of our time!  So rather than make something, or fix something (which believe me,…

DIY Daydreamin’

All of this writing has made me look around the house a lot.  I already look around the house a lot on a regular day, but since starting this series I’ve been pushed to really look at everything, almost critically.  Well, maybe that’s an inappropriate word choice… I don’t mean I’m critical of my house,…

For about 20 or so days I have been writing about things that make our house a home, and occasionally moments that make our house a home.  This is not a thing, and it’s not really a moment.  It’s a chore!  A real life chore. Why and how does a chore make anything better?  Because…

He’s here, he’s here, he’s here!  And he is the BEST!  I cannot even explain how in love with this little dog I am right now! Here’s what little we know about our pup: He’s about a year old – they estimated his birthday to be August 1st 2011 but we ave no way of…

The surprise

This has to be, hands down, the most exciting yet anxiety inducing thing we have done to make our house a home.  Did the feature image give too much away? We got a dog!  Well we don’t have him yet, but soon.  I found our precious little guy online via Petfinder and it was love…

A funny thing happened

So… I had big plans yesterday, and the day before that.  I was planning on coming home, making a delicious dinner, enjoying it with my husband then sitting down to write all about it! 3 out of those 4 things happened.  Guess which 3?  Yeah… the first 3!  I started uploading photos for the blog…

The big green monster

The cause for much debate in our home, believe it or not, has been this lovely dresser.  Purchased for a whopping $80 in the summer (Alex got it down from $100), the plan has always been to paint the dresser white, possibly a nice robin’s egg blue because who doesn’t love that colour?  Since the…
