Oct 31, 2014 + 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.
Gorgeous graphic stairs
Great advice for interior designers and decorators on creating your brand story
This is how marble is harvested. Fascinating!
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!
Oct 30, 2014 + diy, for the kid
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.
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?
