How To Grow Chamomile For Tea

Grow your own chamomile for tea via lifeovereasy.com #garden #herbs #diy

My grandmother always grew her own chamomile for tea. She used to dry it in her attic, which was a magical place to explore during my childhood trips to her home in Italy. The smell of chamomile still brings me back to those days. I think my grandmother believed chamomile tea with honey fixed just […]


DIY Rustic Branch Curtain Rods

DIY branch curtain rod and bracket

The best thing about blogging is all the great blogging friends you make. Talented, inspiring women, the kind of people who can find a tree branch in their backyard and whip up a new curtain rod, all before they have finished their first coffee of the day. And the next best thing about blogging is […]


And Another Bedside Lamp

love my turquoise ceramic bedside lamp

The bedroom lamp saga continues. I thought I had it nailed down when I chose Ikea’s Ranarp lamp, ie The New Blogger Lamp. I was sure that’s what I wanted. The hubby even confirmed that he was throwing away the Ranarp packaging. Which meant I could not change my mind and return it. Because I […]

Pottery In The Garden

decorate your house with outdoor pottery!

Just spending a sunny summer day hanging some pottery in the garden and thought I’d share some shots. Most potters I know have gardens full of their rejects. I’ve had lots of that over the years, but lately I’ve actually been making some pieces with the intention of leaving them outdoors. It’s a nice way […]


HomeSense And Me, BFFs Forever

I can fit all my dishes in this gorgeous raw wood dining room hutch

Sorry to the long list of great girlfriends who I have bonded with over the years. Sorry to all of you who have stood by me through thick and thin, through the tortures of grade school and high school, through boys and babies. Sorry girls. Girl gossip and martinis are fun and all, but great […]


Bloggers Doing Good At Spun Goods

handwoven wall hanging

Nads and I had a chance to attend the Spun Goods event last week in support of Spun Studio, a social enterprise of Sistering, an organization that serves homeless, marginalized, and low-income women in Toronto. Spun Studio is a testament to the power of community and crafting in building a sense of belonging as well […]


How To Grow Mint

how to grow mint

Mint is an easy herb to grow. Most people buy a tiny mint plant at the garden store and pop it into the garden, and that’s pretty well that. But if you want to do it right, there are a few more things you need to know. I tried to plant a mint garden. I […]

Check Out These Outdoor Fireplace Showstoppers

fireplace showpieces

Summer is finally here, and with it comes the mad scramble to prep my outdoor spaces. Considering the right plants, landscaping, lighting and furniture all come to mind.  Integrating outdoor music and cooking accessories too. Our ‘outdoors’ now require just as much attention as our indoors, sometimes more so as this now becomes the space […]


Easy and Quick DIY 3D Wall Art

3D DIY artwork

We’ve recently gone through the painful experience of staging and selling our house.  I only say painful because it seems like the best way to show off your space is to clear out 3/4 of your things (yes my pod and storage saga continues, read about that here) and let someone else come in and […]


DIY Air Plant Terrarium

air plants terrarium

I have been a little bit in love with air plants lately.  These spiky exotic beauties are popping up in flower shops everywhere and seem to live on just about nothing. They make quite an impression with their interesting shapes and myriad shades of green and given they don’t need soil to grow, you can […]


Easy Gorgeous Origami-Paper Decoupage Bangles

This is a FABULOUS DIY project, just in time for Mother’s Day this week.

Surround Yourself With Good Stuff from Indigo

Doesn’t everyone need a little spark of positive to start their day? That was the one key thing I found at the Indigo Fall preview – so many ways to surround yourself with positive messages.  From where you wrote, to what you read, to what you drank out of or sat on, there are so […]

CLIFF by Lambert & Fils for Mobilia

I get excited about lighting.  Really, I have a fetish for lamps and am really in love with all things mid century, so when we were invited to preview the launch of a new collaboration between Mobilia and Montreal design collective Lambert & Fils, we jumped. Entitled CLIFF, the collection blends clean lines, industrial influences […]

Decorating With Eggs

Easter place setting

This is a fun post. Nothing deep. We’re just talking about eggs. Getting you in the mood for Easter, which is finally around the corner. And after all the arctic temperatures and ice storms we’ve put up with this year, cute, coloured eggs are exactly what we want to be talking about. Just a little […]


Add Some Glam – Quickie Bathroom Closet Makeover

At least that’s what I was going for. Here’s the before, just to give you a little context although I will say I was a little shy to share.  It’s pretty bad. There really doesn’t seem to be any need to elaborate except to re-iterate our current closet set-up was really uninspired.  In dire need […]


Trend Spotting for Spring

outdoor oasis

Wrapping up my week of trend spotting at the HomeShow, I decided to leave the best for last.  Here are some jaw dropping ideas for outdoor spaces.  The idea of a ‘yurt’ conjures up the notion of a tent in the snow with some pelts but these are far from that.  Outdoor oasis?  Guest space?  […]
