Alright my friends, this one has been a looooooong time coming … I’m absolutely thrilled to FINALLY be sharing a house tour of our new (to us) home!       I have to say, this isn’t exactly the house I thought we’d end up with when we started looking for a new home in our hometown in northern Alberta.

Favorite Things Friday | making it in the mountains

Happy Friday Friends!!! It’s been a s-l-o-w week on the blog, though a VERY busy one behind the scenes! Hubs and I have been chipping away at our first room makeover (hoping to share details soon!).

Currently | making it in the mountains

Hello my friends! As y’all know (because of my incessant complaining perhaps), I spent the first half of this month knee deep in boxes. Unpacking our lives after the big cross-province move was a BIG job, bigger than I remember it being. Let me tell you, this wasn’t my first rodeo. In fact, we’ve moved 4.5 times (that .5 is a long story that nobody needs to hear right now) in the last 5 years. And what have I learned… Read more »

Alright, I’m pretty darn excited about this one my friends!!!     Y’all know how much I adore antiques! There’s just something about finding that unique piece with a story to tell, some history to it. I’ve been collecting all sorts of treasures for years now – knowing how special each and every find is and just waiting for the perfect chance to use it. I’ve got boxes, shelves and closets even (yes, closets with an “s”, as in more… Read more »

DIY Pipe Curtain Rod

Happy Friday friends!!! We’ve made it through another week and the weekend is almost here! Any special plans? We’re hoping to head to Jasper National Park for a bit of skiing (and maybe some shopping too). We’re definitely missing having the Kootenays in our backyard, but at least having the majestic Rocky Mountains so close at hand gives us something to look forward to! We grew up skiing, biking and exploring the Rockies and there’s really nothing like them! Life… Read more »
