FAITH▪︎Happy Sunday my loves! What's that you say?...oh yes, some little peeks into my office. Loving the new chairs and rug soooo much😍 A few things I am always loving more though...yes, my guys for sure...but my faith trumps it all.
Today I woke up to an 80° day...because the Lord deemed it to be...amd I am grateful for it! If you're new here... let me tell you a few things about me. I love my family more than words can express. I was a competitive athlete, fitness model, trainer, and personal chef for 15 years. Decorating and DIY are EVERYTHING! And I have almost lost my life multiple times...I mean truly hours from death almost lost my life (3 times...with a few additional just dodged it). However the Lord wanted to use me...to use my story...and I can only believe that is to grow his kingdom. I will be sharing more and more of my story over on my website beginning next week. I truly hope you'll join me...in getting to know me more...and getting to know what fuels every day of my life🙏💙

Packing up this wall, this sofa, and everything in this house starts tomorrow 😭 5 years of memories have made me love our little home so much
I’ll be crossing my fingers the 80+ humid weather passes before the Friday move🤰🏼 🥵
Who’s ready for a dinner with friends? Since we can’t get together around the same table, here’s a dining space that is not only dreamy but also comes with guaranteed good company. Check out @spacefordreaming dining room, it’s the perfect mix of neutrals with a little twist on modern farmhouse. Shannon’s whole home is stunning, you’ve gotta check out her en-suite and laundry room with DIY sharpie walls!
So invite yourself to the dinner party, go and check out this dining space (and the rest of her beautiful home!) and check in next week to see who’s place we are heading to for dinner next Sunday

Wow what a crazy night/morning it's been 😵 Story time: So last night we were just relaxing on the couch watching Waco on Netflix (so good btw), and then we smell something burning. It seems like it's coming from outside, so we think someone's smoking something. Then, it takes on this horrible chemical smell. Turns out one of the units in our building is on fire (literally engulfed in flames) and the smell came from tires that the person had on their balcony. It's an 8 floor building, and we're at the top corner, and the fire was in the middle of the first floor. We got ourselves and the cats out (though the poor things were so freaked out they were hard to catch and we got pretty scratched up. Luckily no one was hurt and the fire didn't spread to any other apartments. I'm so thankful for that and for the very quick response from the fire department. We all got to go back in after about an hour, but wow was that ever exhausting. This morning we vacuumed and scrubbed the ash off of everything, so at least we have a clean apartment! 😂😭
As many of you know, I already have anxiety so this really didn't help, especially in the midst of a pandemic and you really can't social distance when evacuating a building 😬 We're going to take it easy today and go out for some fresh air (since it still smells vaguely like burnt tires in here), and finally finish our friggin show!

Going to “shop” my home today and give these shelves a little refresh! They’ve been bugging me lately, but I think the bottom shelves are still not safe for decor just yet 👶🏼🤪 Who else has bottom shelves or cabinets empty for our little curious babes? .
Also if I move my camera a tad to the left, you would see the mess of a house I’m working with 🤪🙈 cleaning is on the agenda today as well 😂 .
I hadn't put on makeup in weeks. It hadn't even occurred to me. What happend I asked myself while looking in the mirror?
I think part of it is pandemic-related anxiety figuring out how to work and take care of my two boys at the same time. Plus, I’ve never been someone who wears a lot of makeup.
Makeup does not matter at a time like this. Not wearing makeup is more about redirecting time and resources to focus on the things that matter they say.
Still I think those who have stuck to their pre-corona makeup routine aren't necessarily acting out of vanity.
Happy Sunday!! The new shade is up and a print is on the wall!Scooter had a run in with the rug, and now he is going to have a run in with me!😉 Head to my stories to see some paint choices for the exterior and you can help me decide. Have a good long weekend friends! Thanks for being here!

Our local @tjmaxx opened back up last week and I scored this adorable plant stand 😍😍 I think I want at least 2 more. 😅 Anyone else go through TJ withdrawals during this mess?! It was one of the few things I actually missed while staying home 🙈 haha .

Okay, so my first and only experience with wallpaper was this door. After I finished, I promised myself I would never use wallpaper again (who remembers me saying that?) Here I am, a few months later, about to embark on my next wallpaper project and I’m NERVOUS. I know it’s just wallpaper, and I’ve done way harder things but for some reason I have a huge mental block on this project. How do you feel about wallpaper?!

I haven’t shared THE OTHER SIDE of this room (well maybe 1x but gone now🤪) so tomorrow I’m going to start my “mudroom project”
Easy like Sunday Morning! This is the view before the kid tornado wakes up. Hoping to get more of that painting done in the foyer today. If I’m lucky we will get some shiplap up too 🤞🏻 oh yeah and remember that end table I was painting to match my coffee table, yeah thats still sitting patiently in the garage too! Here’s to Hoping your productivity is better than mine!

I challenge you to take a step back today, look at all of the beauty around you. ❤️Gratitude is one of the strongest states of mind.
I know for me the perspective of abundance allows me to focus on the good in my life, which in turn pulls more goodness into my life.
I added a little red, white & blue to our front entry this week, but it took some effort due to the color of this chair. I had to go with non traditional shades to make it work.
#workwithwhatyouhave Little changes make a big difference! Come shop with me at my online boutique (link in bio). 20% off all Turkish towels, throws & hand towels this weekend with code: MEMORIALDAY20
I had an early night last night and it was extremely needed! It is also nice waking up hangover free! 😆 my plan today is to make some lovely breakfast when ivy is asleep, catch up on some TV, pray the sun comes out so we can have a lovely walk and then it’s back home for a roast dinner finishing the day clambering into fresh bedsheets. There’s nothing better. ✨☀️🤞🏼 •
||C O U C H|| Happy Sunday you filthy animals... Obviously been reading my sign in the bathroom too much haha. Sooo I have really struggled with how to style my couch in a way I really like. Everytime I see @darrikdecorates gorgeous couch styling I always feel inspired so this is my attempt at something a bit different. I want different cushions eventually but I just shopped my house for the time being. So a huge thank you to Darrik for giving me some tips and inspiration! Go follow him if you haven't already! Hope you all have a gorgeous Sunday 😘

One thing that was really important to me when looking for a house was making sure we had enough storage space! I think it’s safe to say we definitely have enough now! Can’t wait to make it all pretty and organised 😍💖
There something that’s absolutely soothing to the soul: putting your feet up on a boat and spying your cute house from afar and pretending for a split second there’s no care in the world. #puremichigan#bearlake

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! This weather is reallyyyy bumming me out but at least today was productive :) I’m already clean & snuggled up in bed browsing for a new mirror for the bathroom 👩🏻💻 .

What do y’all think??? I spent the whole day wallpapering this wall! This product is amazing! And it’s less than $1.50 per square foot! I have never used removable wallpaper before so I don’t have anything to compare it with but I had no issues with the product whatsoever! Super great! It was just tricky getting everything lined up! But a little concentration, it was no problem! We still need to put the lights up and I need to get the rest of the room decorated! I have had so many people ask me where I got this wallpaper! I linked this very wallpaper with several different retailers on my LIKEtoKNOW.it! This company has so many different patterns as well! All the retailers that carry this one, carry several others! Let me know if you have any questions! .

Wow! The past few days has been a total whirlwind... @stephens.living and I created a home tour and the first week completely blew the two of us away! There was so much positive energy from everyone involved that I am so excited to get going again for next week... but for now, I’m busy shopping all the #MemorialDaySales for cabin decor and furniture! .
What sales are you shopping???
On this Saturday night we are going to sleep tight!
I really need to catch up on sleep. Lately my habit is that I'm sleeping too late. I have neglected my sleeping routine completely.
When the boys are asleep, my to do list is getting longer. In those hours I'm trying to do things for myself, I'm doing the cleaning and laundry and in the evenings I also love to get inspired by other insta accounts to apply that inspiration to my own home design
here’s a fun fact about me: I used to hate fresh flowers. okay, so maybe hate is a little strong, but I didn’t like them or being given them as a gift. I think it had something to do with the disappointment of a dramatic valentine’s day mishap back in high school (🤣) and for years after I’d give the disclaimer “please just don’t get me flowers”. then I grew up, bought a house, and started buying them for occasions at the house which then evolved into buying them for myself because I found there’s beauty and joy in the details of little things. and now I’m telling y’all because thank God we grow and change and can laugh at our high school selves. #amiright ?

Before & After! I forgot how horrible it was before 🙈 I’ll post a few more befores in stories (this room has had so many phases) and a tour of what it looks like right now with our daughters nursery furniture temporarily in there (big girl bed coming soon! 😭) #1979nightmarereno#beforeandafter
How do you make a basement not feel like a basement? I get that question all the time, as basements are often dingy and uninviting. When we finished our basement, we avoided that by adding comfy carpet, lots of texture & patterns with pillows and blankets, and functional areas like this built-in bench. Check out my stories to hear a few other details about this area of our basement!

I’ve decided to hang art on this space in the new kitchen. Go check out my stories and vote on your favorites. Especially if you loved watching tiger king😂
Keep in my mind I love color which this space needs desperately! #carolbaskinkilledherhusband
I got some amazing happy mail yesterday! My new pillow from @uusi.studio ! I'm in love with it. It's new home is in my upstairs "bonus room" which I've never shown before. Question, is the bonus room a west coast thing because I had never even heard of it before moving to Alberta 🤷♀️.

I am backing up a post from my friend @jennifer_grammer_designs 🙌🏻 She recently posted about this wonderfully versatile sofa from @macys When we were looking for a new sectional I wanted something with mid century style and clean lines. However, with kids, I didn’t want to spend a fortune. We’ve now had this sofa going on about 3 years and it has held up beautifully!! Does not show wear or any staining! This is a blessing with two kids and two dogs!! As Jennifer said, I highly recommend the Jollene sofa from Macy’s! Great piece for a great price. On a side note, the key to keeping a sofa in great shape is to routinely rotate the cushions. When ever I straighten up the throw pillows, I always reverse the direction of the cushions, so that neither side gets too worn and you don’t get that slumped looked! 👍🏻 Have a great Saturday! ☀️
Week 3 of @oneroomchallenge with @betterhomesandgardens 🌿
I ripped out some laminate countertops this week and tried out some paint 👌 I’m having a colour crisis though 🙈 I NEED YOUR HELP!
I can’t decide between the greens! Head to my story to see and vote!

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is a good day!! I finally get to see my nephews after two months 😀 !! This new reality hasn’t been easy but we are slowly getting the hang of it!
Now let’s talk about this mantel! We built it a year ago using @thebloomingnest tutorial and we LOVE it! However, I always thought the colour was a bit too dark! That’s why I plan on giving it a good sand to make it lighter! I also purchased a wood bead garland from @lesbellescabanescurated which will replace the one I have now!! I’m hoping these small changes will bring my mantel game to a new level!! 😍
This might just be my new favourite corner of the house. I finally framed some prints I’d been hoarding and hung them in the dining room. The frames were old finds from the op shop that I fixed up with Rub’n Buff and spray paint (I spray painted the mat and it worked really well). Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Would you rather: be able to teleport objects... or teleport yourself?
I say teleport myself! I can do without a lot of things... but I’d certainly love to be many places ATM.
Tell me your best WYR (would you rather) below! I love this stuff.
I also really love finishing projects. Amen?!
Happy Friday, Friends! 🖤

I finally hung these sconces in the kitchen! And guess what? No electrician required. I used @nestingwithgrace magic light trick and put battery operated puck lights in them. See my stories for all the details. Oh and I also spray painted the glass white (so you can’t see the puck lights and also because I love the look of milk glass). What do you think? Are you tempted to try the magic light trick?

I planted the window boxes on the barn + soon they will be spilling over with flowers! Love this DIY project we did a few years ago!
🌿$2 Dollar Tree Planter 🌿
I’m in LOVE with the way this came out! Who knew using a little caulking could come out this cool? I created this using a @dollartree planter, @dollartree caulking and a little @rustoleum spray paint in Bright Coat Metallic Finish Copper! This project was so easy!! I love the idea of creating a faux-hammered copper look and it makes me want to do it on everything! If you want to check out how I created this, click the link in my bio for the YouTube video. .
I hope this inspires you to create your own, and if you do, tag me so I can check them out! 😊
Also, would anyone be interested in seeing how I created these apothecary jars out of old candles and a little stain? 😊

Two posts in one day, because I actually came here to share these new additions to the family but got sidetracked by google photo memories. Meet Beams 1, 2, & 3. They’ve enriched our lives immensely. We love them so much. 😂
We also never close our doors when the weather gets nice. There’s always little people running in and out so it’s just the norm around here. *open invitation*
Cannot wait for the weekend! Who has big holiday plans?! Mr. Shoreworthy has four days off and he’s called it Christmas vacation 3 times in conversation today. 😂 I think we’re all losing our minds!
