Christmas decorations

Wayfarers Ale Society, Nova Scotia

A few months back I was given the opportunity to decorate the newly opened Wayfarers Ale Society in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. The owners of this newly built craft brewery had an amazing vision for the esthetics on the outside of the building, but the taproom was a blank slate. I was more than happy to […]

Red and Green Christmas kitchen hutch. Vintage christmas village

You may remember last year’s Christmas Decorations as being a bit over the top. If you don’t recall, let me remind you… I had 12 trees, yes 12 (see them all here).  Well this year Christmas went on a diet, like a serious don’t recognize you slim down. I put up 1 tree, and spiffed up a few […]

Each year I like to switch up my holiday decor, and since this is the first year of owning a restaurant and lounge, I thought adding a Holiday Bar Cart into the mix would be the perfect addition.

Remove the day tag and add a Instax photo for a Holiday Photo calendar. Place the photos in an album or leave them up to enjoy long after the season is gone!

It’s no secret I’m in love with Christmas, and I can’t get enough of my FUJIFILM Instax mini 90, so when I came up with this idea for a Christmas Photo Advent Calendar I knew the collision of my two loves would be perfect! Typically each year our advent calendar is filled with candy (see our advent calendar […]

But you know what has been the best part yet?  Getting the hutch gussied up for […]

Rustic Christmas decorating

Growing up in the country and on a farm one would say I’ve lived quite the rustic life. My mom had good taste in decor, but my Dad was the great white hunter type, so our TV room also doubled as big game trophy room (there are only so many ways you can fix up a […]
