The Thing About Snow


Snow is a reminder that old things are passing away...


and new things are to come. 


This season can feel long,


But it will eventually fade. Although it's a bit of a wait...


something lovely this way comes.

Fireplace Mantle Part 2

Remember that fireplace mantle that I got kid-ishly excited about? I said I'd post my fall display, so here it is!


That banner is handmade with lots of love by Celebrate Life Party Decor.

DIY Refinished Dining Room Table

Then there was the time that I refinished our second hand dining room set. 
It only took me about a year and a half... in my defense, I did take last winter off of this project due to zero desire to paint in a cold Canadian garage. 

Like any DIYer, I scoured Pinterest for ideas on how to upgrade our set. Found one! The blogger who wrote the tutorial actually specified "Brace yourselves- this is a LOT of work!" But of course, I did it anyway... She was oh so very right, but I love the way it turned out! 

Behold; before, during, and after pictures of said project:













As it turns out, painting chairs is not my gifting...







Voila, the finished project!









For a more detailed tutorial on this project, be sure to visit Hailey's blog!
