Diy: Antique French Chairs

Hello! It’s been a while my friends… I don’t have time for as much (if at all) mini home projects like I used to. With a nine hour work day and an additional three hours of daily commute, there is literally no time in my life for…anything! Work is demanding and it’s exhaustion as I’ve … More Diy: Antique French Chairs

BUTTERBLUME

Butterblume is one cool concept. It’s a restaurant, cafe and floral boutique all under one open space. While in Montreal, my husband and I visited this place for brunch. We sat at the bar and had a clear view of the chefs prepping magic. The ingredients are fresh and simple yet what’s on your plate … More BUTTERBLUME

DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

We are taking the kids Easter egg hunting this Saturday and they are  so excited. This will be the third year in a row that we’ll be attending our neighborhood’s annual egg hunt. We’re establishing our own little family traditions and rituals with each holiday. The best gift about being a parent is living life through the eyes of … More DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

Planting Tulips

It’s starting to look a lot like…Spring! I love going into the stores and seeing all sorts of plants, herbs and bulbs sitting pretty on the shelves. I couldn’t help but grabbed a few pots of tulips to add to our front doorstep planters. Before potting the tulips, I placed them into our kitchen sink … More Planting Tulips

Half-Wilted

Isn’t just painful that you spend so much money on fresh flowers and they barely last for a week? I don’t care where  you get your blooms; we all face the same problem. Once they begin to wilt, the water starts to smell like mildew so the next logical step is to toss them out, … More Half-Wilted

A Special Day!

Today is such a special day. Spring is finally here! YIPPIE. I would do a happy dance and take Zoey out to the park if it were not for the snowstorm that just hit us on Tuesday! What I absolutely LOVE and miss the most about spring are all the gorgeous blooms in our garden … More A Special Day!

No Roses Here

Hello! How was everyone’s Valentines? We didn’t spend the night having a romantic dinner or anything of that sort. Just going out anywhere with Ms. Zoey is a challenge let alone having a nice quiet dinner at a fancy restaurant! Completely, out of the question. Although we didn’t wine and dine, my husband did come … More No Roses Here

Candles & Flowers

Today has been such an exhausting day! I am ready to retire for the evening. Wished that I can just lay in bed, watch some juicy gossip tv, maybe drink a glass of plum wine, stuff my face w/ checker fries, then indulge in some tiramisu, and fall asleep before 8pm! Not specifically in that … More Candles & Flowers

Playing Catch up

My place is inundated w/ magazines that are just waiting for my undivided attention. I have to say, those mags got some patience! I swear I will get to them b/c honestly, I can get ideas and STUFF from them. Plus, what’s better for decompressing than flipping through the pages of uber stylish + gossip … More Playing Catch up

A Romantic Arrangement

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend! Mine was quite busy!! I am currently working on a project which I’m super excited to share SOON! I was product shooting and everything was made prettier w/ this whimsical + romantic arrangement that I made w/ the hydrangeas from our garden.  Isn’t quite LOVELY?! I can’t think of … More A Romantic Arrangement

Peonies & Friday.

So it’s Friday and I’m sure you’re ecstatic! I remember that I used to have horrible Monday morning blues and when Friday comes, it was such a wonderful feeling. Here are some peonies from our garden to help get you through the rest of your day (aren’t the last few hrs of work just dragggggging?!) … More Peonies & Friday.

Home Sweet Home

After living out of our suitcases for over a week, we are finally home! It feels so good to be back and living normal again. And what better welcome home gift than coming home to a bunch of peonies in bloom? I went through an orchid phase, then hydrangeas, and now peonies. I’m still OBSESSED … More Home Sweet Home

Tulips Galore

We went a little tulip crazy last week! Hey, gotta get ’em before they’re gone! Not sure what these flowers are called but we also grabbed one pot of this.  Have a GREAT day! ‘Til next post, Kellie.
