Not gonna lie, I'm kind of in love with this little corner of my wardrobe! And I've added a little flair with this adorable frame, which was a lovely birthday gift from @livpurvis.
Big fan of pastel colors... Obviously...
Dear Sunshine, please come back now. You know we don’t do well with multiple dreary days ☔️ xoxo, CHS
In the mean time, here’s a dose of color to brighten our #windowboxwednesday
, y’all 🧚🏻♀️
It seems like the hectic rat race has been seeing more and more people turning away from desks and going to workbenches instead. Self-taught carpenter, full-time mother, and Bachelor of Hospitality graduate Nolin Teh’s hexagonal stools, geometric coffee tables, bathtub trays, and pin-legged cabinets seem like meticulously-crafted pieces of art, and are as good as functional pieces as they are pieces of decor.

Wine o’clock. Hubby and kids don’t appreciate sitting in this spot but I love it. Infact it’s one of my favourite spots to sit, it looks out on the river on one side and the other looks over into the kitchen, dining and lounge.
Most used phrase of November so far? ‘Ohh, that can go on my bar cart’ - at this rate I’m going to need a second one ✨ thank you to the lovely @gordoncastlescotland
who sent me over their beautiful bottle of small batch gin, not only is the exterior gorgeous but the gin is incredible tasty too #gifted
On another note, thank you for all the podcast suggestions - I’ll be getting through those this week. Secondly, I’ve agreed to do the Butternut Run Club today at lunch and I’m already full of the fear. Running tips please 👇🏼 #rushandhome
I got some Christmas happy mail today (check out my stories) and I think that was exactly the motivation I needed to start getting some more Christmas decor up! I’m still loving my Fall decor, but I’m ready for some more holiday cheer to spread through our home! 🎄 What’s the status of Christmas decor in your home? Is it partially up, fully up, or are you waiting??

😍 I’d buy everything but the way my bank account is set up...😭
These lamps are so unique! We love having rare pieces in our showroom ✨
Lanie is 4 months old and I think this might be my favorite age so far. She giggles & smiles ALL THE TIME (minus when I try to take pictures 😂)! She’s very petite but she’s long ... we call her our little string bean. She loves to smile at anyone & everyone that talks or smiles at her. Her new favorite toy(s) is her little exersaucer. She still hates anything being put on her head but doesn’t scream when they’re put on anymore 😅. She loves storybook time with Daddy before bed & has recently started touching the pages as he reads them to her, it’s the cutest! She just had a very fun weekend with some family that came to visit. She particularly loved rolling around with her older cousin Asher ... they’re best friends already and both have excellent poker faces 😍
Still so many things to get done. Does a house ever get ‘done’? Worked a little more these past few days. Little by little... #movingishard
How do you store your Tupperware?? ⠀
I try to store the Tupperware with the lids on, making it super easy to find.⠀
But, I have clients who aren't able to do that, so I take a large Tupperware and store all the lids in that one space. Then they can just look through the lids to find one that matches!!⠀
Makes storing leftovers much easier!
my Christmas decorations are officially out of the attic and we are getting ready to “garland and twinkle light” this house to the nines! we were in NICU last year most of December so didn’t get a stitch of decor up. remedying that this year! what’s your favorite Christmas decoration to put up?! I’m super excited to hang these hand painted ornaments again 😍 #christmasornaments #handmadechristmas

A little something new I’m doing this year is working through The Simple Home by Rhonda Hetzel. Perhaps you have read the book, or maybe you have read about the Simple Home Project on my blog. This book has been a great resource for me as I work through the art of #homemaking
. I’m amazed at how much I did not know or how little I failed to plan before reading it.
This month the focus is on health and well-being: perfect as we approach the winter season. If your interested I put together a list of items I am including in our winter wellness kit in a recent blog post. It’s not inclusive but may give you a good springboard toward stocking your medicine cabinet for winter. As always, the link is above. ⠀⠀
Also, I want to congratulate @hannahandherboys
you all are the winners of the free matching game from @eyegamer
! Congratulations, I hope you all enjoy it.
It’s time to treat yo’self and your friends! 😉 #AD
This year at Friendsgiving 🦃(and beyond!) make sure to share the crisp, citrusy taste of Day Owl Rosé! 🍊 Gather together with grateful hearts and seize the moment, drink up, and live for the day! ❤️
Msg for 21+ @DayOwlRose #livefortheday
Was able to finally visit a friends place in the concrete jungle that we helped #edesign
& it turned out so cute! 😍
Making memories with you, is my favorite thing to do 🛶
“This time of year, many of us experience a thread of pain or emptiness woven into the fabric of winter. Some years we celebrate with a background of plenty, other years with a background of lack. Our circumstances each year no doubt add fresh perspective and reason to pause and reflect. That’s why I’m so drawn to the sacredness of the season. It’s here that I remember there is no situation so dark that light is not permitted. There’s no scenario so bleak that hope can’t find its way in.” - @joannagaines
