  • When cleaning becomes rearranging and... still on team open shelves.

    It's inevitable for the home decor set that when you start to clean something, rearranging mild or severe becomes a part of the equation. All I wanted to do was clean my open shelving in our kitchen. I fully wipe down the shelves a few times a year and just generally "degrease" everything. It'...
  • Summer patio living' at Oliver and Rust house

    It is summer and the living is full of shovels this year.  We have been mentally preparing and saving for the plan for our backyard for plus 10 years and solidly working on bringing around the plan for the last 4. All good things come to those with back pain and patience right? We thoroughly ...

    We aren't talking basketball here. It happens every March as the calendar flips to March 1. My restlessness with preparing my thoughts for moving into our outdoor space at home start revving up. My finished-ness with being cooped up inside and a whole mess of new product arriving to start the nex...

  • A bigger girl room

    It's been awhile in the making.

    Our little girl got a little bit bigger when she graduated from a crib to a big girl bed in December. 

    At the time in the midst of her birthday and Christmas it was really all we did.

    We found a mattress and a frame and plopped it in.

    It gave me time to think about how she uses the room as her little three year old self and how she'll use it for the next couple years.

Blogging Since 2015

This blog is written by Meg and includes tales of the renovations/ decor changes of her home and the shop she owns in Fonthill, Ontario. It goes back many years, much before the shop was born. It is like one of those stacking dolls. It started with a couple of kids buying their forever home. It snowballed into renovations, which turned into garage shows and then a store. If you are new here, welcome! We are glad you stopped by.
