Wayfair Upholstered Headboard-1-2

The Master Bedroom: The Beginning of the Grown-up Space

Big thanks to Wayfair for providing us with our gorgeous and grown-up headboard. It’s jumpstarted quite the project!  Since I’ve lived with Mr. Suburble, I’ve never had a master bedroom that I would call “an escape”. I hear words such as “oasis” or “sanctuary” used to describe bedrooms.  My bedrooms have always been “gathering places for crap” or…

Crockpot Applesauce -4

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Right now, the girls are obsessed with applesauce.  I put in their lunches. We have it for snacks. And I don’t feel bad about giving it to them. It’s just cooked apples… … and a bit of cinnamon. I have made applesauce before. I hauled big boxes of number 2 apples (meaning, not-so-pretty apples –…

Brass Horse Heads - To Paint or Not To Paint?-3

Will I regret this coat of paint?

I found these fancy little fellas during the great “junkapalooza” that I embarked upon last year with my antique-savvy girlfriends. Among Granny and Grumpa’s walls of dolls and Coca-Cola memorabilia was an extensive brass collection.  I have a thing for brass; it calls to me like a siren’s song. I saw collections of cats, and ships, and…

Kitchen Nook - Chrome and Crystal Cool Chandelier-1

Shedding Some Light On The Subject: Our Kitchen Nook Chandelier

Huge thanks to Home Depot Canada for working with us during our renovation. As always, all opinions and sarcastic shots at my husband are my own.  Once upon a 1996, this nook was decorated a little differently. The cool greys and white chairs were instead warmer blush tones. The floor was tiled, and the window…

Crazy In Love: My Whirlpool Front-Control Gas Range

We’ve been working with Whirlpool during our kitchen renovation, and they are sponsoring this post. However, all opinions, references to Jay-Z and his Bey, and gas stove banter is my own. We’re thrilled with our appliances and would recommend them any day. She’s here! And she lives in my kitchen! After years of dreaming of…

Spike Necklace - A Stella and Dot Knock-Off-7

The Spiky Bracelet – A Beginner’s Project

I was digging through a box of craft stuff – as you do – when I came across a few packages of golden spiky beads that I had ordered once upon a time. I had seen them on the Consumer Crafts website and immediately knew I had to have them. You see… I had remembered…

Tomato Basil Soup-1

Tomato Basil Soup

I could live off of soup. I’m just telling you that now, because Mr. Suburble – the meat and potatoes connoisseur of the house – does not understand my love of the stuff.   But soup is the stuff of warm bellies and quiet moments. And when a soup is tasty? Oh… how can you…

If you’re a scrapbooker or paper artist, it’s likely that you’ve heard of the BIGkick by Sizzix. It’s essentially a heavy duty press that works with embossing folders and dies; in no time flat, you can die cut out shapes or create gorgeous embossing work on various papers. I had been yearning for a Sizzix…
