Wooden Sandbox with Hinged Top

This beautiful — and super sturdy — sandbox is a great addition to any backyard or cottage. The designer of this “cadillac of sandboxes,” the amazing Carla of Small + Friendly, has shared the instructions on her blog so any handy DIY mom or dad can build the same awesome sandbox for their own back yard.

With a hinged, retractable lid-turned-deck, as well as plenty of space for a few kids to build and dig, this sandbox easily buys you more time to sip a beverage or read a magazine while the kids play.

Flower Arrangement DIY

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.

Eggshells For the Garden DIY

My kids can’t say no to this activity. When they are being little homebodies and refusing to get outside, I pull out our stash of eggshells (we keep them under the kitchen sink) and declare that it is egg crushing time!

Junk to Funk | Bistro Set Reno

When I saw the pile of rusty iron on the lawn of the neighbour’s garage sale, I saw potential. The potential for a lovely retro bistro set bringing new life and purpose to my front porch. I imagined freshly brewed coffee, the paper and early morning rays of sun. I paid $15 for the table and 2 chairs, invested another $25 in paint and outdoor fabric and a few hours of labour later my porch dreams were reality.
