“The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” ― William Morris Does anyone else feel like winter is 3 months too long? I’d be content if winter ended in December, and then right after New Year – BOOM! Spring. But alas, I’m looking at another 2-3 … More Making The Most Of Winter
Our little cottage has really come together in the last year, and it feels so good to be fully settled in our home. It’s almost hard to remember what a long painful process it was. Almost. I still haven’t forgotten how stressful and frustrating it was when all our belongings went missing for 8 months before finally being delivered … More 2017 To-Do List
CHRISTMAS!!! I love Christmas! It’s the only redeeming part of winter in my view. Maybe if I lived on a ski resort, winter wouldn’t be so bad, but I don’t. I live in a place where it’s cold enough to snow, but instead there’s just darkness, rain, and sogginess. As the days get increasingly shorter, it’s … More Happy *British* Christmas!
You may have noticed that I’ve had sort of a thing for dye lately. Well as it turns out, DYLON discovered that I’ve been using their dye not a lot, but always, so they offered to sponsor a post on it. I was stoked when they approached me about it because I knew Andrew wouldn’t let me … More Upcycled Bedsheet With DYLON
Where has the time gone? I can’t believe how fast the Christmas season is flying by!

I have a mile long to-do list, and I haven’t had time or energy to accomplish much … More DIY Chalkboard Wall
“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” ― William Morris My goal for the remainder of this year is to try and live by this rule, and lately I’ve been on a … More RIP White Sofa (what have I done?!)
See what I made! Shall I tell you how it happened? Well. There’s a blank wall in our living room that’s been annoying me for months now ↓↓↓See it? Over there behind the lonely chair? Even though our lounge is teeny tiny, I feel like that wall is off by itself, and not tied into the … More Dyed Tapestry
Happy anniversary to my other half! This week marks 2 years of marriage for us, which gives me an excuse to talk about our wedding. 🙂Our wedding was beautiful and perfect, but not for the reasons I thought it would be. It wasn’t perfect because our flower arrangements were impressive, or because our chalkboard signs were … More Our Wedding – The Good, The Bad, & The Parts I Don’t Remember
It’s been 10 months since we moved into our little cottage, so needless to say, this post has been a long time coming. I’ve shared a few rooms individually, but this is my first attempt at a full home tour (as promised to many of you). So don’t be shy, come on in 🙂I’m pretty … More All Moved In – Home Tour
