This year, my son Cole has become very interested in making pom poms. This past summer, we got my daughter Calla interested as well and we spent an entire afternoon at the cottage making some giant ones, but smaller pom poms are achievable in much less time. This is also a great activity for a rainy fall day.

During these lazy, hazy days of summer, there are times when the wee ones get a bit restless. Then, it’s time to get creative! I looked around the house and grabbed a few household items to make some simple instruments. Family band time!

Hooray! Summer is here! Personally, summer is a time when I’m really gung-ho to tackle a lot of projects. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been awoken from a sluggish hibernation, perhaps it’s the expansion of workspace, or maybe it’s that extra injection of Vitamin D. Whatever it is, I’m eager to create and transform. In searching for some fun, new projects, I came across the inspiring blog Simply Beautiful Now. With an eye for the quirky and a need for more seating, I was drawn to Carol’s DIY chair transformation. Now it’s off to the thrift store with me!

Another fantastic entry by a fellow blog queen – this time, Anne from The City Sage. The City Sage was named a must-read by Martha Stewart Living so we are excited to be able to feature her project!
As our nutty Canadian weather keeps us guessing whether it’s still winter, or already summer, or maybe back to spring – keeping fresh flowers in the house at ALL TIMES, is something we give the thumbs up to.
