A Space for Me!

So, I'm thinking I need a space. Just a little space that is all mine. Somewhere I can look through blogs, keep some of my favourite decor magazines, have pictures I adore, always display fresh flowers etc, etc. I'm thinking I can create this little 'oasis' in our master bedroom. There is a space just inside the door that has no use right now and might fill the need of this little get-away spot. I may have to put a fence around it to keep my daughter from rearranging daily though (she thinks she is a decorator and literally 'redecorates' my home daily!).

I came across this picture on Cove and Grey blog and I really love everything about it. The colours, calmness, texture. The way the desk is placed is how I picture it looking in my bedroom. Maybe another project to add to the list? Enjoy...

Summer Schedule for the Wee Ones!

Okay, I know it's only Spring, but admit it - you are thinking of Summer already right!? Well, I am. I found this great, simple little schedule and wanted to share as I love it's ideas and meaningful activities that can be easily incorporated. Today being Thursday, it says to do something of service which my hubby and I have been talking about a lot lately. We want to find something of service that we can do as a family and will be a teaching opportunity for our girls.

Speaking of this, I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Toronto to watch Oprah's Life Lessons! My girlfriend and I had a few travel hiccups along the way (to say the least) but had one of the best experiences of our lives! Hope to post more on that soon.

Easter Love!

It was one of those weekends that you don't want to end! We went up to Whistler, BC and had a blast. My almost 4 year old rode the gondola and went tubing for the first time ever (she loved it), we cruised the village, hung out at the park, went to a community Easter Egg hunt and just generally had some good family time! We came home to hang out and eat (too much chocolate!) with family (and of course my hubby had to watch the Masters). It was a good one!

My Easter Bunnies (First matching dresses, I know - couldn't help myself!)

The Easter Bunny got it right this year!

Playroom Inspiration!

My mom wants to re-do what she calls the 'grandkids playroom' in her house. I'm so happy as I've been giving her the nudge to do this for a long time! It's mostly my little one's who use the room but she also needs it function for her pre-teen grandkids to watch TV and lounge. One of her other requests is she needs the couch to double as a bed for sleep overs. It's a small room that has to be kid friendly but also look good as it's just off her kitchen. I'm excited with the new inspiration. It's bright, fresh and young - perfect for kids! My mom is a tough critic so we'll see what she says today? Happy Easter weekend everyone! My little family is going away for a couple days together and I can't wait!! Enjoy...

I have included a daybed that turns into a double and the ottoman opens up for storage - great for all those toys!
