Spring Trendspotting: Outdoor Living Spaces

Here are some more of my HomeShow/Canada Blooms snaps.  There were so many ideas and inspirations for outside spaces, I couldn’t resist sharing.  Here are a couple of highlights: 1. Creating those the inside living spaces in the outdoors.  Furniture, lighting, accessories count. 2. Durability in materials for long term outside wear and tear.


Using The Good Dishes

Hand-made porcelain daisy plates (lifeovereasy.com)

I did a brave thing today. It was a bit of a battle, but the side that is trying to change things up around here finally won. I came home with a set of custom designed dinner plates, made for me by my friend, the talented potter Monica Johnston of Frantic Farms Clay and Glass. […]


Good-Bye Dining Hutch, Hello Record Cabinet: A Fun Makeover

This is a quick and easy project that I pulled together in no time. The hardest part actually was convincing the hubby to drop everything and meet me at Value Village to haul yet another piece of furniture home in the van. Once I got past that hurdle, the rest was easy. You might have […]

Color Trends at the HomeSense Spring Preview

    It’s still snowing out there.  There seems to be endless conversations about snow, cold and how long this weather is meant to continue.  Enough already.

Jazzed for Spring at the HomeSense Spring Preview

Austrian Hearts for Valentine’s Day

We’ve all got hearts on our mind today, and I thought I would share some pics from our ski trip last year to Austria, where you see hearts all over. This was a special trip, being our last March break together as a family since our oldest was going off to university later that year. […]

Hermes On The Rive Gauche

Yes people. I was there. On the Rive Gauche in Paris. In Hermes. In Paris. On the Rive Gauche. As I piled on the layers this morning and trudged through this crazy cold weather out to my formerly cute, now salt-covered and ice-storm-damaged VW bug, it seems REALLY REALLY far away. But I was there. […]


Samantha Pynn Chats Kitchen Trends and Whirlpool Ice

Spring is around the corner and it’s no surprise I’ve got kitchens on my mind.  We’re house hunting and the first thing I do whenever we find a house we’re actually considering is go and sit in the kitchen.  Sit and imagine, can I see myself cooking in here?  Does the kitchen ‘feel’ like I […]

Fab Basket Shelving

Like everyone else this time of year, I have storage and organization on my mind. And not just any storage. Pretty storage. Because that’s the kind of thing that gets me psyched. Psyched enough to stay on this organization bandwagon I’m on. And you know what will help you stay on your own organization bandwagon? […]

Choice. Colour. Quality. Intelligent and eco-conscious design. With the Bobby Berk Home Collection, you don’t have to compromise.

I Made A LOVE Blanket. You Can Too.

I made a blanket for Christmas. An entire blanket. Yes I did. I am not a knitter. I have no idea what I was thinking. I only did it because no one stopped me. There was no experienced knitter around to say “Are you crazy? Stop that!” Because a blanket takes lot of knitting. About […]


Some Snaps from the Ice Storm

While there are still people out there with no power, we were lucky to brave the storm with little effect.  We did lose one of our favorite trees, opened our doors to some power-less family members and had a hard time getting around, but mostly we got to sit and watch. We went for a […]


Spectacular Shadow Box Christmas Tree Art

Yes this post has real STAR power!  Absolutely and unequivocally pure unadulterated STAR STAR STAR power.

Easy Holiday DIY Pom Pom Art

WOW!  This is my holiday secret weapon this year.  Ssssssshhhhhhhhhh.  Seriously. Refrain from sharing, passing along, pinning, whatever! Keep this to yourself.  Use an ‘anti-social’ media strategy. Ha ha – that’s what happens when I try to coin terms at 2 a.m when I’ve had way too much cold medicine.  Am I just laughing at […]

The Easiest Christmas Craft. Maybe Ever.

This is the easiest Christmas craft, maybe in the history of Christmas crafts. I’m pretty sure of it. And it might be also the cheapest, although I couldn’t guarantee it. It’s definitely the most environmentally friendly, because you can scrub your pots with your cute little trees after the holidays are over. We featured these […]


Birch Log Candleholders – Another Look

This is one of our most popular DIYs, and for good reason. These are awesome candleholders, and if you’re handy with a saw and a drill you can bang off a bunch of these puppies in no time. It’s even easier if you happen to have access to some big burly guy who’s willing to […]
