Use this list of my favorite, charming, Farmhouse Style Garden Retreat Ideas to help create a soft and relaxing atmosphere, by using natural elements, such as terra cotta pots, wooden lanterns, galvanized metal and lots of mixed shades of white.
Last summer we added a brick patio area to our yard, as a place where we can sit to keep an eye on our young children playing in their tree-house/sandbox/swing-set/play area.
This area would also serve as the perfect place to host my lovely fellow neighborhood-moms when they bring their children over to play. We often try to get together throughout the summer to sip a refreshing glass of Moscatto or Sangria, and of course let the children run wild! Continue reading →

Learn how to devise your very own Easter Bunny Topiary Tree with these really simple materials and easy steps! Plus join me for an Easter Blog Hop, as some of my favorite fellow bloggers share how they’ve gotten ready for Easter this season!
I’ve been wanting to try making my own topiary trees for awhile now, since some of the beautiful ones that I come across in the stores seem just a little bit on the expensive side. Since it’s almost Easter, and I’ve been needing to throw together an Easter project for this year as well, I thought why not try and blend the two! And well, this is what I came up with… Continue reading →
These Spring Burlap Printables are a really easy and cute way to update your home decor for each Spring! They are farmhousey-chic, and add a cute little pop of color mixed with a touch of rustic, to any area of your home! Oh, and did I mention that you can get your very own copies for free!
I’ve been trying to stay consistent with my burlap printables ever since I dreamed and devised up the first set. I loved them so much, that I keep re-creating the burlap look for the different seasons and holidays. I’ve been keeping them the same size too, so that I can keep reusing the same cute frames that I was able to pick up at the dollar store… Continue reading →
Easter is one of the best times of the year to decorate… Pretty pastel colors and cute little bunnies!

Everything on this list is fairly neutral, so it will just fit right in with any of the Easter decor that you already own!
If you have happened to catch any of my other seasonal decor posts, then you will already know that I am a really huge fan of owning several good neutral pieces of decor for each season.

Who really has time for decorating anymore, in this super busy world that we live in?! Well, not me… But I still love to do it anyways! I wanted to come up with something similar to the DIY Barnboard Bunny Family Art Deco that I made for Easter last year.
However, when I pulled out all of my supplies, my daughter Soffia decided that she was going to help. No matter what! She kept trying to eat the moss, and the paint, and she was grabbing everything off the table, so I kind of just went, um ya… I think I’m gonna do something a little bit easier!Continue reading →
Beautiful farmhouse-style faux foliage! Are you like me, and have a tough time keeping houseplants watered, luscious, and well, just plain alive?! Check out this list to find beautiful farmhouse plants for your home, that allow you to skip the work and skip the watering!
So many people have given me houseplants over the years, that I could quote-on-quote, “Could never kill, even if I tried!”… Well sorry, but the little guys just never really made it longer than a month or two! I think it’s one of those out of sight, out of mind kind of things, maybe?
I forget that my houseplants exist, then somehow they make their way back into my tunnel-vision scope of reality, and I then feel so bad for letting them get so thirsty, that I completely over-water them, and they end up dying anyways! Poor things! Continue reading →

Along with that, I’ve joined up with a whole bunch of amazing Home Decor and DIY Bloggers to help bring you the Holiday Home Tour 2017! Be sure to check it out, below!
Have I ever told you about how much I love the snow? Like, I love it! I would totally move to Alaska if the opportunity were ever to smack me in the face! (It hasn’t yet, but I’m still hoping!)… Oh but did I also mention that I live in South-Western Ontario?! Whomp-whomp! Total snow fail!
We have had a few really, really good snow seasons since I’ve lived here, and I am totally convinced that this winter is going to be another one! (It better be anyways, or I am seriously trucking up to Alaska for a vacay!)
Although we don’t have any snow on the ground yet, I decided that I would get into the spirit by creating a snowflake, snowball, snow flurry theme with my Christmas decor this year! Hopefully my snowy enthusiasm is enough to trigger that first real snow fall!Continue reading →

Each year, I am trying to become more and more organised for every holiday season.
I am trying to set it up so that I have reusable decor that I can make look different, but still look great every year, without having to spend more money. Last year I got a really great start with purchasing my neutral Christmas decor…
