DIY Paper Flower Garland

DIY Paper Flower Garland

Today I’m sharing with you a little craft project I whipped up a while ago. It’s super easy and quite satisfying – mainly because it’s quick and impactful. To start, you’ll need a few sheets of tissue paper. I used some from the Target Dollar section […]

Ranunculus Niceness

Ranunculus Niceness

Here are some flowers that my friend Amy arranged. Aren’t they lovely? What a great colour scheme. Did you know that Dahlia’s were once known as Georgina’s? And the name Ranunculus is Latin for “little frog”. This probably refers to many species being found near water, like frogs. […]

Personalised Kids Birthday Card Hack

Personalised Kids Birthday Card Hack

Here is a super easy way to create gorgeous birthday cards with minimal fuss. Buy pretty blank cards – I always look in the dollar section at Target, these ones were only $1 for 8! Then buy a pack of stick-on letters, these are Thickers […]

Crushing on pink

Crushing on pink

Four weeks ago I felt super silly spending $5 on a bunch of sticks at Trader Joes. But they have since blossomed and they are just so beautiful. The colour is picking up some of the other tiny touches of pink in the same room, [...]

Lake Tahoe Mini Photo Essay – Part 2

Lake Tahoe Mini Photo Essay – Part 2

There’s nothing I enjoy quite as much as roadtripping somewhere new, especially when the location feels authentic. Some of the areas around Lake Tahoe have a great vintage Americana vibe, crossed with a swiss alpine village feel. I am a total sucker for anything with […]

Lake Tahoe Mini Photo Essay

Lake Tahoe Mini Photo Essay

We were fortunate enough to have another summer vacation by Lake Tahoe. I just can’t quite believe how beautiful it is there, how clear the water is (or how cold it is!) It’s really such an amazing place. On one hand I feel like I’m […]

DIY: Reupholstering an Ottoman

DIY: Reupholstering an Ottoman

I picked up this neon pink upholstered ottoman from Target, deeply discounted at $5. I figured no one else had bought it because it was blindingly pink – but it’s a very useful piece of furniture: A seat, storage and softness all in one. Perfect […]
