Dream House

Who wouldn't want to live here???
If I didn't just have my house painted last year I would for sure be picking this colour palette.
Love, Love, Love it!!!

All in a day's work

I bought a new lense today! I don't know how to use it but I bought it!
Any pointers prom my photographer friends would be great;)
I picked up this adorable spring decor from DOLLARAMA ... couldn't believe it. Sorry friends if you are looking for these beautiful robin's egg blue nests at the Abbotsford store, I bought them all!
I found these bags at Dollarama for only $2!!! so I bought 5. I thought they would be the perfect bag to use at the Farmer's Market this summer.
My friend at http://reimerfam.blogspot.com/ has been inspiring me with her delicious meals from Jamie Oliver, check out her photo's ... they will make you want to cook!
A little decor for the garden!
I bought 2 of these to anchor the bottom of our stairs.
(I have a lot of them if any of you are interested for only $20each, they also come in black)
and to end my busy day with a nice glass of wine.

Let the Sunshine In...

I love a sunny Saturday morning eating breakfast with my boys and slowly sipping my coffee, enjoying the sun streaming down on my face.

However, I can't do this all day:)

Hopefully my little ones are going to be completely angelic while we run errands (making a few stops for some treats for Mom), do laundry, clean house and work outside.

So here's to Saturdays!
(I'll post later about some goodies I find on my saturday adventure)

Sitting Pretty

I know some styles you love but can be overwhelming to know where to start. A small but impacting start can begin by adding some vintage chairs to any dining room table. I love the eclectic look of NOT having a matching table and chair set.

This is also a small hint at what adrienne-marie designs will have available tomorrow!

I don't know about you but I'm loving bright colours and patterns this spring. I highly suggest picking up this book from Tricia Guild. I just bought it for my very dear girlfriend for her birthday and had to flip through and now I'm in love. Bonus is that the book looks so beautiful for display as well. I will be picking it up at Chapter's next time I'm there.
