DIY: House Numbers

It is the little things that annoy me.
Like how my address looks like it says "Toast".
And why is every single house number on an angle? So weird.


In any case, these tarnished mix of number styles and sizes needed to go.

Free Stuff: Plants

Kijiji comes through again in a BIG way.

I say big, because in neither case could I anticipate what I was actually getting. But I was just excited to get some free plants considering I had to give up so many of mine when we moved.

Living Room: Paint and Planters

Though this was the very first room to receive paint, I haven't gotten around to completing it. And it still isn't done, but I thought I would share some of my progress.

Back when I was still in Ottawa, I pulled together a 5 minute colour concept, that I still liked (with a little tweaking) even after we got possession of the house.

Vintage Finds: Swizzle Surprise

My step grandmother was an avid collector of swizzle sticks.
Unfortunately, she has passed, but the collection then went to my step dad.
Can you believe it? He has brought them with him on this visit and bequeathed them to me!


Check out a few of this steller collection of vintage swizzles!!!
I love this. My personal faves... Don Ho and the gold Polynesian totem.

Junking: Retro Bar Stools

Another Kijiji find!!


Kind of unimpressive in the photo, but for $10 I decided to take a chance.
If you want some tips and tricks on how to find great stuff on Kijiji, see this blog post from the Interior DIYer.
