  • A Summer Living Tour at Home

    An alternate title to the this post could 100% of have been, That plant is too big for that table.But you know what?I don't much care.Because that vintage pot and that Cast iron plant look sexy together and we don't sit in here much at this time of year so I left it once I figured out they fit to...
  • 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.

  • A simple refresh in the bedroom.

    With the changing of the seasons, and sometimes besides the cleaning of the linens and washing of the windows we just need a little reset.  Maybe a new set of clean sheets. Maybe a new duvet cover or changing out to a "new" old one from the linen closet. Our bedroom was all suited up for warmth a...

Although on the flip side I am always curious about what some of my inspirational people, shop owners or ...
  • Joining the open shelf posse in the kitchen

      The fastest kitchen reno ever. Well not really but, it did come together quite quickly. I don't even think I had a chance to mention it here that it was happening. Why?  The short story. When we moved in years ago we could not afford a tile backsplash so we did a painted beadboard. It was wonde...

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.
