Garden Shed Happy

It's been about a year since we finished my garden shed and it makes me even happier than I imagined. Sitting on the patio and looking at it or sitting on it's porch with the bees and birds busy around me.

We added a small flower bed this spring and divided plants from other beds to fill it.
I am anxious to get busy on the interior...

2016 Halloween Farmhouse Kitchen

Happy Halloween from my kitchen to yours. Our little kitchen nook is one of my most loved spots in the house to decorate. It's amazing how a new wall colour can change your Halloween look. I just left out the orange...

Table for three? Note the supervisor peeking in from around the china cabinet.

2016 Halloween Apothecary

October means one thing around here... Halloween Apothecary.
No bottle is safe from a new home made label and the Mod Podge.

It is in the same spot every year. Some things change, some don't. We have grown from our few bottles that we started making in 2010 to so many that our Apothecary stock has outgrown the cupboard and spilled everywhere.

My Garden Shed

Three years after finding the 100+ year old wood, and many years after hoping I would someday have my own shed, she is finally a reality and I love her. I can see her from my kitchen window and love seeing the dormer from our ensuite upstairs. The stained glass window in the dormer came from a 105 year old house in Vernon, BC which is one of our favourite places to visit in the summer.

Halloween Mantle 2014

I hope you were sitting down... it has been a while since I've dusted off the keyboard for a post. Halloween has me inspired, as always. I'm thinking this may be my most favourite mantle of all. Plain and simple. We started with a well aged window, appropriately dusty. Once cleaned and the remaining three pains of glass were Windexed, it was anchored to the wall just to be safe for the upcoming Halloween party.
