Currently drooling over…

 I haven’t done a currently drooling over lately, but I can’t stop staring at these amazing white oak doors and large door knobs.

Recycled Trampolines

I love the never-ending ideas that people come up with to re-purpose old items. I just came across a few photos on Pinterest of backyard trampolines turned into suspended beds. I so so so wish I had a huge backyard to do this!

Chair Before & After

  I picked up this cute little chair for Skye at the thrift store for $2. It was pretty beat up and covered in glue. I cleaned it up, sanded it down and then spray painted it with a few coats of Krylon Fusion in Dover White. Now Skye has a super cute seat to sit on out on the patio with us.

I am in awe of this London home.

Mushroom Foraging

One of the things that my mom, sister and I would love to do is to go mushroom foraging. I just came across this mushroom knife and brush from a beautifully curated  store in Toronto called Mjolk. Looks like we might have a mushroom foraging adventure in the near future. 

Woolly Pockets

Lately, I have been obsessed with hanging gardens and have been toying around with the idea of making a large living wall with succulents or going the Woolly Pocket route and doing something really lush and full. We recently expanded our patio space to include a play area for Skye and it has the perfect wall for a hanging garden. My mom surprised me on my birthday with two Woolly Pockets and my father and step mother got me a gift card at a local nursery to get some plants. The Woolly Pocket directions are really easy to follow and they each came with hardware to attach them to the wall. I got a few different kind of ferns and I am really happy with the results.

And last, but not least are my Woolly Pockets in Skye’s rock pit.

Concrete with a pop of yellow

 We have a few concrete walls in our home and a bright pop of color on the ceiling would look so amazing.


12 Stylish Outdoor Planters

I just wrote my first piece about stylish outdoor planters for a new parenting website called

If this doesn’t scream summertime and childhood, then I don’t know what does…

Happy Birthday!
