Farewell to February

As the days get longer and I start to see Easter candy and spring clothes arriving into the stores invariably I am filled with the anticipation for spring. Ok so we’re getting another snow storm and the grass is yet again buried that doesn’t mean we can’t start living the dream inside. The following are a few of my favourite ways to protect against the winter blues.

By now your Christmas decorations are long gone  and only remnants of Valentine roses remain. Fresh flowers are a quick and easy hit of spring. Pretty much anything pink makes me smile right now. Courtesy of Style at Home

Nothing feels better than a little order. For a quick fix hang shelves upside down and the brackets become separators. Brilliant, thanks MarthaStewart.com

Cottage Dreaming

Happy Moments happen here.

Happy Moments happen here.

Today as the snow continues to fly I think about better days ahead…Long lazy days at the cottage with nothing to do but sit on the dock judging kids diving competitions. If you are a cottager you might be starting to think about renovations you want to start or furniture that you want to add. So in this inaugural post I dedicate it to inspiring the cottager in you. Whether you own one or just love the feeling that cottage style evokes. Cheers

The orange stools are just so delicious, I want to sit here with a strawberry dacquri & shell peas.
