Christmas Bedroom

Just a few small, festive touches can take your bedroom from everyday to a cozy Christmas retreat.

This is part 2 of my Holiday Home Tour – done piecemeal because no two rooms are ever tidy at the same time.

If you want to see the 100Things2Do Christmas tree 2018 and family room decor click over, but for today I’m going to show how I incorporated a few simple ornaments to ramp up the Holiday cozy in my Christmas bedroom.

It all […]

Budget Kitchen Upgrade with Instant Granite

I have an exciting makeover to share with you today and it took less than 3 hours start (filming, photography, learning curve) to finish! Let me introduce you to the countertop vinyl that will take your kitchen from builder’s grade laminate to posh luxury: Instant Granite®.

Our kitchen is 13 years old, which really isn’t that old, but as times and tastes have changed, so has the style – which makes our 2005 ‘warm and dark’ look, dated. […]

Holiday Home Tour 2017

It seems like every blogger in the universe is showcasing their Holiday Home Tour 2017.

I’ve been decorating, staging, photographing, moving things around, photographing, editing, photographing – and I cannot come close to the gorgeous homes and images of some of my blogging idols.

Mainly because my house is lived in and messy all most of the time,

partly because my house isn’t white on white on white,

somewhat because I’m not a fantastic photographer,

and a tinch because I don’t notice the little details […]

Fall Front Porch

I’ve plugged away at my Fall front porch for about a week now.

I haven’t done anything exceptional, because I didn’t really know what to put out to make my home feel warm and welcoming, so I’d set something out, move it around, take it back in and start again.

I think I’ve just about got it now – or at least I’m stopping now before it’s time to decorate for Hallowe’en – so I thought I’d share a few photos of […]

Hosta Garden

I’ve finished my hosta garden!

I’m not sure I’ve planted everything correctly as far as spacing and colour are concerned, but I buckled down and finally got the garden leading into my backyard done.

Not a swoon-worthy project?

I know.  Not yet anyways.

But this garden has been a disaster for over a year now.  Last summer Hubby widened our walkway and created a patio extension to house our hot tub – which is gorgeous – but it also left two garden beds full […]
