Thanks to MatchaFesh, I got to try their matcha for free! I love matcha and have found it difficult to find consistently good quality in Canada. I feel so lucky to get to try their organic ceremonial grade Japanese matcha from a Canadian Company!! Thank you MatchaFesh!! Now, I got it free but I’ll always be honest!Read more
I bought this vintage glider second hand from a nice lady who had rocked all her babies, and grand-babies to sleep for naps in this chair. I got it for $40 Canadian. I probably could have bartered a little harsher for it, but I see them for sale often for over double that! The cushions were worn from all the baby rocking and needed some extra padding and a fresh fabric.
I had been invited to a pre-baby baby shower only a few weeks after having my own baby, and had some leftover labour cookies from a batch I had made myself. I figured, maybe this mama could use them! And yes, I mean labOUr – I’m Canadian :). Read more

This DIY is a re-do of a previous DIY I did last summer – find that here. The old home of the frame got a facelift, which means this guy had to find a new home in a new room with a new colour theme. I used paint that we had leftover from doing a small accent wall in our main floor bathroom so it literally cost me nothing. Read more
Today I am going to take you for a walk through all of my furniture building. It’s long over due and hopefully really helpful. Please send me any questions in the comments or through my contact form on my About page, I am happy to help. This tutorial is specifically for the bench, but its all the same. You can modify my instructions below and make the Farmhouse Coffee Table, Farmhouse Console Table, or even my masterpiece the Farmhouse Dining Table. I apologize if I’m not using the proper carpentry terms – remember I just started!
