Mrs. Meyer’s and Me (and a #Giveaway)

Have you tried Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products? Here's a review, via

Growing up, I dreaded “Clean Day.” This was always Saturday in my home, and even at a young age I was expected to help out. Definitely not my favourite day of the week! At that age, I didn’t really appreciate how nice it was to live in a home that was well taken care of.

When I first moved out, I tried to stick to a weekly cleaning schedule. It was fairly manageable in the early years when I lived in a small rental apartment or in my first home, a tiny bungalow. Once the kids came and life got more complicated, the weekly cleaning plan flew out the window. In order to keep up, I had to fit the cleaning chores in when I could.

These days, life is still a little complicated and I try to keep up as best I can. Although I LOVE it when the whole house is clean, I can’t say I enjoy the process very much. So when Mrs. Meyer’s contacted me about trying out some of their cleaning products, I jumped at the chance. Cute vintage-style bottles filled with plant-derived ingredients and essential oils? Sign me up! As Mrs. Meyer herself says, (more…)

DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

Have you enjoyed my #12MonthsofDIY posts? It’s been super fun partnering with a talented group of blogger friends to bring you some new DIY projects, all the while getting to explore new materials. It started with felt and my DIY Felt Notebook Covers, then I used vinyl in August to make my DIY Striped Carafe. Next up was faux florals in my DIY Ribbon Tassle Garland project. In October the group played with ribbon and I made a DIY Ribbon Tassle Garland for my daughter’s dorm. And last month I used paper to make a Quilled Paper Snowflake.

Or flower. It could be a flower, right? If you’re not quite ready to think about the holidays, or the coming winter weather, you can think “flower” every time you read snowflake in this post!

Whichever way you go, this is a sweet little craft that even a beginner can do in no time. I know that because this is my first attempt, and I did it absentmindedly while watching TV with the hubby. Basically paper quilling involves using simple tools to roll and shape paper into elaborate designs. Quilling enthusiasts can create breathtaking works of art. But this little project is a super simple version that anyone can create the first time out.

Reveal Your True Colours
I’ve always been particular about the quality of light in my home. I find the right light can transform a room.

I have dimmers and timers everywhere in my home, and I love to use light in surprising ways to cheer up corners of my home. I have a large hibiscus standard in a corner of my dining room filled with white Christmas lights that I use year round, as well as a LOVE marquee sign on the sideboard. Right outside the living room window is a large magnolia tree that is beautifully lit up. In my front hallway, I like to wash the art on the wall with light rather than using the brighter ceiling fixture. And my bedroom has a beautiful hammered silver and glass ceiling lamp my sister dragged back from Morocco that makes the room look beautiful but provides hopelessly inadequate light. So you can see I’m the kind of person who would rather (more…)

The 2016 Trinity Book Sale

Shooting the annual Trinity Book Sale is really a labour of love for me. Just being able to wander through the stacks of books in stunning Seely Hall, having fun with my camera and examining some of the titles that grab my eye – it’s honestly one of my favourite days of the year.
