Paper Mache Deer Head

Paper Mache Deer Head

Hello everyone,
how are you? are you ready for the weekend? I am, it’s been very busy around here. I had plans to start decorating our home for the Holidays but haven’t had much free time lately. I’m glad to be here today to share with you a project I finished two weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to post.
Remember, my previous post; ‘where I blog’, I showed you the state of my dining room desk and there was a white deer head on top of it? don’t worry, it wasn’t a real deer head.
Well, I got it from Deserres over 3 weeks ago at half price, it’s a papier mache …

Want to impress a 6 year old? DIY a Latch Containers Advent Calendar

Advent Calendar with Latch containers

Hello everyone,
hope you are having a great week, here it’s been good but very busy because I’ve been working on this fun project for my little nephew and I wanted to make sure I could give it to him before December 1st. I wanted to post about it since last week but I only started working on it this weekend and with Nate around I’m lucky to have finished this project at all.
As I’m writing this post (Tuesday evening), I’m having difficulties focusing on this post because he is trying to reach for everything from our kitchen island and counters with the help of our orange pouf.
Please let me share with on how I put this fun Advent Calendar together …

White, Gold and Blue Wreath for the Holidays

white gold and blue Christmas Wreath 2013

Good morning everyone,
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a little cold around here, so I stayed in, cozy in my pyjamas all Sunday. I took time to start decorating the house for Christmas. Have you started decorating yet?
I love this time of the year because I can have as many wreaths that I want around our home without anyone calling me the ‘crazy wreath lady’. So when a group of my fellow bloggers put a wreath hop together, I dusted off my old wreaths, jumped at the chance to participate and started decorating my own.
I love traditional wreaths and bought an oversize one last year for our living room but this year when it came to create my …

Where I Blog

small Office in dinign room

Good evening everyone,
I hope you are doing great, it’s been a while since I posted and I’ve been a little bit less active on social media lately but I’m back now.
Thank you so much to those of you who reached out to me during these last two weeks and noticed my absenteeism. I have been dealing with some health issues, which I am not ready to share at this moment. I am recuperating well.
When I started writing this post, I didn’t know how I should name it, I decided to go with ‘where I blog’ because I am about to show you my new little nook I made for myself in our …

Dining Room Makeover and ORC challenge week 6

Dining Room

Hello everyone,
we are finally here, the day I get to give you a final tour of this small space and the pieces of furniture I decided to keep: week 6 of the ORC challenge.
Thank you so much for stopping by week after week to see how everything was progressing and for your feedback.
I can’t believe how indecisive I’ve been but I’m happy with the results, since I did it with almost no budget. No major …

Dining Room Makeover and ORC challenge week 5

white and black light for the dining room

Hi everyone,
it’s now week 5 of the ORC challenge and believe it or not I still have yet to decide on so many things.
I’m terrible at this, every week I keep changing my mind about the décor of this space and about which pieces of furniture I want to keep or toss aside. Do you remember the ‘inspiration’ pictures I posted weeks ago? What happened with those you may ask. Well, I think it’s the white sectional that blindsided me.
I would also love to …

Dining Room Makeover update and ORC week 4

gold white black dining room getting makeover soon

Hello everyone,
I can’t believe we are already on week 4 of the ORC challenge. It’s incredible how fast time flies. So, here is another update on how our small dining room is coming together.
At week 4, I’m still undecided on the layout of this space. Friends, I need your help. I took pictures of the space with the white sectional (remember my ORC week 3 post) and pictures …

Dude, where’s my pantry?

baking station kitchen aid processor kitchen aid blender and baking items

That’s probably what Nate was thinking since I removed my pantry from the dining room, he used to love playing with those baskets
Happy Friday everyone,
aren’t you glad the weekend is finally here? I am. Lots of things to do around the house these next few days. I have to continue working on my “ORC” challenge.
Remember, I mentioned in my last post that I removed my pantry from the dining room? Don’t you wonder where I put all those items that filled 3 entire bookcases? Well, they have a new home but before we go any further I want to let you know that this …

Dining Room Makeover small projects and ORC week 3

dining room soon getting a makeover

Good day everyone,
hope you are doing great, I know it’s been a while since my last post but glad to be here today. I’ve been baking a lot these last few days (note to self: pick up more butter this week). I’ve also been meaning to share with you a delicious and super easy “chocolate” dessert but I didn’t take any pictures of it and it didn’t last in our house very long. I might give it a try again soon and if I do I will make sure to share it with you.
I also missed last week’s one room challenge post. I didn’t want to miss it again this week so I took time to write this post after Nate went to bed late in the evening. You might also notice the poor quality of my pictures this week, I didn’t have the camera …

Updates on my Living Room Fall – Halloween – Decor and more …

Updates living room fall halloween decor

Happy Friday everyone,
hope you are well, we’ve been a little bit busy here cleaning the dining room and kitchen, I am getting rid of things that I don’t need or want anymore.
Sorry, in advance but the changes that are coming might shock some of you. Ok, I’m just kidding but I know that many of you don’t want me to get rid of my pantry but I just might. The DIY’er in me is screaming for a change.
Have you heard about “THE KITCHN CURE FALL” from Apartment Therapy’s (thekitchn.com), it’s another challenge that I …

Dining Room Makeover Ideas and ORC week 1

dining room makeover ideas

Hello everyone,
have you heard about the ORC?
the ORC is the One Room Challenge created by the lovely Linda from the Calling it Home blog. I fell in love with Linda’s blog earlier this year when she transformed her entrance beautifully.
The challenge is to transform 1 room in 6 weeks from start to finish. We will be able to see how Linda along with 19 other bloggers transform a room and that’s not all, she was kind enough to invite us all to participate by linking up our rooms every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks…

Vinegar Solutions you’ve gotta try on Hometalk

Hometalk vinegar solutions nowathomemom on HomeTalk

Hello everyone,
hope you are all doing well, we enjoyed the beautiful weather by spray painting. Yeah, that’s what we do around here when the weather is nice.
Remember my homemade butcher block cleaner that I shared with you back in July? Well, Hometalk asked me to create a clipboard of vinegar solutions that we all would love to try. How exciting is that. I was surprised that there is so many vinegar solutions …

Halloween Mason Jars

Halloween mason jars using gold leafing pen

Hi everyone,
you are the best, you have no idea how much I appreciate your sweet comments from yesterday’s post. I really do. Thank you for the love.
I can’t believe I’m back today but I had to share with you a simple and quick Halloween project that I made this afternoon while Nate was calm watching a movie; Halloween mason jars. I love all those mason jar projects that we see everywhere, I’ve done a few myself and this one was the …

Copper Leaf Lamp Makeover just in time for Fall

DIY Copper Lamp Table for Fall decor living room

Hello everyone,
hope you are doing well, the weather is changing around here, it’s officially Fall; the days are shorter and cooler just the way I like them at this time of the year. I wore my Fall boots this weekend but I was probably the only one wearing them, I can’t believe some people were still wearing flip-flops when it was chilly out there. I also wanted to thank all of you for taking time to ask about Nate and me; he is doing great, unfortunately I cannot say the same for myself. I’m not ready to share just yet but your kind words mean so much to me and have helped me stay positive. It still amazes me how bloggers can be so supportive. Please know that I also appreciate you voting for my …

DIY Gold Leaf Wall Art + Apartment Therapy Contest

Gold Leaf Wall art

Good evening everyone!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week, we are all exhausted here. You might have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while or visited my favorite blogs either, that’s because I have been struggling with some issues and on top of that this week our little boy is sick and we are keeping a close eye on him. This weekend we will try to relax a bit and hope our little man will be better by then.
On a positive note however, I participated in the popular ‘Room For Color Contest’ from Apartment Therapy. I submitted my Fall …

Meet my blogger friend Larry

Larry D. Bernstein header blog picture

Good Friday morning everyone,
I hope you are having a great week, we are doing well
This afternoon, I will make sure to enjoy the last rays of sunlight with Nate because we are expecting thundershowers in Montreal this Saturday. No Barbecue (BBQ) or DIY projects for us this weekend, just lazy days watching movies and eating popcorn.
Friends, I asked Larry, a great blogger friend of mine, to write a guest post for us and I’m glad he accepted. This is not one of my usual DIY or recipe posts, it’s a funny family related post that I believe you will all delight in…

Living Room ready for Fall

Fall Living Room Final Reveal

Hello everyone,
How are you doing? Hope you are having a great week!
I’m glad to have finally taken the pictures of our living room and get to share them with you today. You might have noticed from my previous post that I choose to decorate it with the colors white, black, blue, gray and because Fall will soon be here I added gold and orange to the mix.
Before you start looking at the pictures I want to let you know that there …

If you are a ‘Pinterest’ addict like me, you have seen her everywhere. Not only is …
