Ok now that the condo is painted. I need some throw pillows!
I’ve been scouting for the right colours and have a few potentials. Not sure which way I want to go though. Here are a few options from Etsy. This pillow is totally Toronto but also gives me the travel bug!
This pillow is great but I am not sure if the colour is quite right.
Or perhaps something a littler nerdier?
This new sign was a gift from one of our friend’s daughters. It certainly colours the vestibule as I haven’t painted there yet!
This will be our reminder of summer during the winter!
I’ve never understood the appeal of colouring eggs at Easter.
Eggs are good scrambled after too many beers the night before and, in chocolate form, at any time. But people seem to like it so I thought I would share this infographic I found that at least makes it sound a bit more interesting than I remember it.
A couple of weeks ago I got a little creative.
Don’t worry—it was under direct professional supervision. My friend and I recently attended a workshop on succulents at Griffin’s Greenhouse in Lakefield. We learned a little and were able to get our hands messy as we potted up several displays of succulents, rocks and moss.
This nifty concrete planter is on the dining room table right now but will soon grace our balcony as a heat hardy summer display.
There were some very original containers for us to use. It makes you think about the different types of things we can use to display our plants. I’m curious to see what else I might do this year!
I think I need to add in a little Canadiana into my home. I’ve started collecting some ideas.
What do you think?

Looking for some new lighting ideas?
I’ve been meaning to shop for new throw pillows for the living room but my current ones are generally occupied.
I guess there doesn’t make a lot of sense to buy anything too expensive, hard to care for or anything I won’t mind getting furry.
It’s important not to wear black at our house…
My neighbour in the condo appears to have gotten creative.
They have posted this on their front door for the holidays. A neat idea but hard to store I suspect. I tried to read the pages to see if it was a ChrIstmas book but surmised it was likely the book on the shelf that was already falling apart.
Here is an interesting infographic.
While it covers the people part of attraction I think it also captures some interesting information about colour and design. Enjoy!
