Pretty.

Do you think it's possible to wake up in this room every morning and not be in a good mood? Oh, and did I mention it's in Paris?

I love this idea.

I've finally got some time off. Which means I finally have some time to relax. Which means I've been indulging in a little more wine than usual. Which means when I was going through my bookmarked DIY project ideas and came across this one from Readymade via Apartment Therapy I was rather intrigued. How smart is this? And if you're over the whole chalkboard thing you could do cork or wallpaper or just about anything else you can think of.

Xmas at Ikea

I like checking out the holiday decorations at Ikea every year. The stuff is at least a little different and less predictable than the usual Christmas knick knacks out there. Some of it you could almost use the rest of the year... Is that wrong?

They're just so pretty!

I haven't even started shopping for a dress for my sister's wedding, but I really think it should be something that will go with these...

I think my next place should have a fireplace.

It's really snowy in Calgary right now - we're talking Blizzard here people - and no I am not exaggerating. It's the kind of weather that really makes me wish I had a fireplace to curl up in front of. Guess I'll just have to wait a couple of weeks for the Christmas Yule log to start playing on the local cable channel. At least then curling up in front of my tv will be a bit cozier... okay, not so much.

Toys that aren't tacky.

If you have little ones to shop for you may have noticed there are a lot of cheap, badly made, and not so nice looking toys out there. These - all from Etsy - are nice and simple old-school wooden toys. Hand made, durable, and they look good - in case they maybe don't end up back in the toy box all the time.
