How to Update an Old Framed Painting


I showed this floral oil painting to you in my master bedroom progress post here.

I found it on a road trip years ago in a little second hand shop in Kagawong, a small town on Manitoulin Island in northern Ontario.

Here's the before.

How to Make a Strainer Planter Wind Chime

Hi all! I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

It was beautiful here, and I was able to work on some projects outside... including this strainer planter wind chime for our back deck area.

We sit on the back deck most evenings just enjoying the ambiance. On breezy days our new wind chime will accompany the sound of our pond waterfall, and together they'll make for a very relaxing environment... especially after a busy day at work.

Sleigh Bed Makeover and Master Bedroom Progress

I'm so excited to finally be working on my master bedroom makeover. I was starting to think I would never get around to it. 

Working full-time doesn't often leave enough hours in the day to get room makeovers done, but with John's help and encouragement the bedroom has been pushed to the top of the to do list. Yay!!

My new colour scheme is cream and green with hits of red (and maybe I'll sneak in a touch or two of pink, wink wink).

The Right Side of My Brain was Right


Hi everyone. I'm Ba-a-a-ck!

What happened to me?  Well, I woke up one day to discover that the right side of my brain had gone on strike, literally... it was totally burnt out and was refusing to create anything until its demands were met.

I don't know about you, but I need both sides of my brain. 

The left side is good at paying bills and managing the budget... and other everyday things like that, but it's useless when it comes to crafting, decorating, and making garden art.
