The Love List

Oliver Jeffers is a favourite around here. I'm trying to enjoy Fall before it turns to Winter. (Ugh, snow flurries in the forecast for Halloween!)

Love these DIY built-ins

There are days when I dream of leaving the city and buying an old farmhouse to renovate. For now, I'm watching this one come together. Her old house was pretty darn amazing too.

Pretty luminaries

Gorgeous graphic stairs

Great advice for interior designers and decorators on creating your brand story

This is how marble is harvested. Fascinating!

Blogging lessons.

Okay, I admit it, I'm "that mom". The one who packs a cute Halloween lunch and makes homemade costumes. I'll share pics of the costumes over on instagram. Have a good weekend, trick or treaters!

Spooky or Not? A DIY Marquee Pumpkin

Despite the appearance of a graveyard in my front yard, I'm not usually keen on decorating for Halloween. Carve up a pumpkin, make a costume, and buy some chocolate treats and we can call this holiday done. But then I had a little girl, who, it turns out, LOVES Halloween. She managed to convince her Dad to stock up on all the scary stuff the Dollar Store and Michaels had to offer (okay, maybe it was the 70% off sign) which explains why there is a plate of fingers and eyeballs outside. Most unappetizing hors d'oeuvres ever.

Bravado aside, Chloe is still a little girl so there is a bit of sweetness mixed in with our spooky. She insisted that the perky scarecrow stand in the graveyard and I came up with a non-creepy pumpkin to welcome the wee ones.

We have a thing for using power tools on our pumpkins. I don't have a tutorial but basically all you need is a drill and a string of mini lights to make this marquee pumpkin. Just make sure not to drill the holes too big or the lights will fall out.

Are you ready for Halloween? Do you decorate or are you happy to have your house looking not so haunted?
