Fall decor in 20 seconds



I have to admit that I wasn't feeling particularly...wordy, yes we'll go with that....on Saturday night when I went to do my posts for the week.  But thankfully I was feeling creative and decided to make a quick compilation of a recent Pin that I decided to conquer on the weekend.  You see, I have this spot on our stairway that always has a string and clothespins that I will change it out with the season, but I had nothing for fall.   Lucia had made me some toilet paper art for the summer....that was interesting, so I definitely had to do something for the changing of the season.  Heck, I had so much fun making this video that I may do another one for you.  Anyway, a little inspiration and something you can do quickly at home to add a little to your fall decor. So here you go, my fall decor in 20 seconds:



While my video is super speedy, in real life this project took maybe 15 minutes and that is probably exaggerating because it took me awhile to get those 's'-es down.  If I was being super meticulous and picky, I would have printed off the letters and traced them but who has time for that shit? I may be crafty but my lack of attention to details is quite remarkable.  Strange, I can spot a spelling error with my eyes half closed. Unless said error happens to be in my own post, because I clearly don't reread those.  ANYWAY, pin accomplit and my stairway looks falltastic, thankyouverymuch.  This project was so easy that I may even consider making some backup letters for when I'm feeling extra sassy....

Happy Monday!

  4. oh my goodness! I just love this! I couldn't tell from the pictures, but I had no idea that you actually used a real book. So darn cool! :) We need to make more videos, they're so fun right?

  5. Yay! This is easy enough that I could even handle it. But it does involve scissors. Which doesn't always bode well for my left-handedness. But I guess that is why you have an entire book to use. right? Right.

  11. I love this! I haven't thought about using book pages as a banner before, but that would fit perfectly in my home! And I can't tell you how often my parents text me with a typo in my post that I swear I reread! Also, love your shirt in the video!

  12. Oh my gosh, that's so simple I could even pull it off! :) For a kindergarten teacher you'd think I'd be crafty but nope. (I also am not good at details hence why my bulletin boards were always given away as a task to a crafty mom) You have inspired me to do some "fall" decorating myself, maybe in two weekends. Beautiful.

  14. I LOVE this!! I'm not sure if I love how honest you are in this post (i.e. the lack of attention to detail and not re-reading posts - GUILTY) or how great it turned out... just COME HERE RIGHT NOW and drink wine and makeover my house/closet/life. Okay?

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....


Anyway, I'm rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here's sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
