Shopping Eco-Friendly in Ottawa: Terra 20

I am sad to report that this past weekend was the first time I went into Terra 20.
What is Terra 20, you ask? Well, I asked too, and essentially it is an eco-friendly department store.
And, it totally is; it is huge, and it is inspiring.
Much of the product is locally sourced too, which is fantastic.

This is just inside the entrance; a glass waterfall fountain.
So far so good!

Item Re-Think: Picture Hangers

On the blogosphere, I have been noticing a lot of people using clothespins on their walls to hold photos, mail, or any other item that it seems appropriate for.

I love it!
What a great idea. These ones are an over-sized version that hold children's artwork.

But how can you use household items that represent you?

Awesome Interiors: The Collector

This years Ottawa Magazine: 2013 Interiors Edition came out, and yet again, it did not disappoint.

There was one particular article that caught my eye, however. It was called "The Collectors".

The description reads:
"Baseball cards. Butterflies in shadow boxes. Vintage couture. What is is about collectors and their collections? What objects do they pursue and why? Five gatherers discuss their flights of fancy". By Cindy Deachman

DIY Wedding 2010: The Big Day

It all came together on the big day.

You will see some amateur photos and a lot of photos from our photograper, Andrea Blair.
We were so happy with how our day turned out. Was there anything that we would have changed? Of course! But when you start nit-picking on the details, you forget what the day is really about: Love, Fun, Family, and Friends. We had the 'Fun' in spades.

This is the covered bridge at Sun Peaks Resort. We were married right in front of that heart-shaped rock.
