Haiillll yeah! And even tho I am a sad, sad wine drinker (ok I am a cheap drunk) I still enjoy my one glass on a Friday night. Who know...maybe I will go for bust and have that second glass. 🍷🍷
Anyone else with me here? 😀😀
#tbt to our anniversary trip a couple years ago. We love heading to Kelowna, BC and enjoying touring one of the many wineries there. And how about these GORJ flower baskets? WHOA, buddy!
I am just going to be over here sitting and waiting for that 4 foot snow ❄️ drift to melt & dreaming of hugging some bright & beautiful flowers soon. 🌸🌷🌸 We anticipate heading back to Kelowna again this summer for our 30th wedding anniversary. If you have must see/do suggestions, hit me with em! .
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room shall we? A sore spot for me, that seriously, I feel so much better about after this past weekend.
In a kitchen full of stainless steel appliances there was my bright, white and glowing dishwasher. So I decided it needed a facelift until we can replace it. After a suggestion of painting it from my friend @salvagedior & another fix for painting the plastic parts from @jamieskolnik I was off and running! With Tremclad Aluminum gloss paint & grey spray chalk Paint, both from @rustoleumca I am now so freaking happy with how I have a new to me and almost stainless steel looking dishwasher!
A little elbow grease, no priming or sanding at all, just a really good cleaning first, the paint went on. I did one good coat of aluminum on the metal & 3 light coats of the chalk paint on the plastic part. *Swipe to see before & during pics & video.
I have to say, this pretty much freaking delights me! Huge props to @rustoleumca for great products. 😀😀
Hole. Y. Mole. Y. 😱😱 I slept in til 10:30 am today and what the heck is up with that? I am up at 5 ish every day so this was so bizarre! But, it is kinda nice. Hubby made bacon, we had coffee and brekkie on the couch and are just chillin’. Sunday game is STRONG! 💪🏼💪🏼
I have always loved things that were a little quirky & different (this explains a lot 😀😀) so when I saw this vintage bench I knew it had to be mine. I found it at a local flea sale for $5 and repainted it, recovered it with faux fur and gave it a home in my front entry.
Seating is the theme for this week of #teamkatethrift with @salvagedior so I knew I had to share this piece. 💗🌷💗 **Swipe to see the before pic & full bench. Seriously how cute is this? In. Love! 😍😍 Don’t forget to check out what my amazing teammates did this week too!

It’s Friday, yo! I am excited for the weekend simply because this chair & I will be getting in some hardcore bonding time! 😍🖤😍 I am excited to share this week of #teamkatethrift with @salvagedior. Each week is a new theme & this week is thrifted baskets. I collected baskets over the past month or so to do this little corner. And it just makes me so dang happy! TBH, this was probably the cheapest wall decor ever! Most of these baskets were anywhere is from $.25 to two or three dollars. #winning

YESSSS!! The weekend is getting close and honestly after the drive home I had today from work, I’m excited to be in my house for three full days in a row. We have had a nasty winter and I’m ready for spring flowers, green grass and warm breezes.
In the meantime I’ll just be sitting here with my fuzzy slippers, flannel pyjamas and a hot mug of tea 🍵 🍵listening to the wind 💨 howl.
I have been dreaming & scheming a dining room update then I came across Nicole at @sweet_domicile
I have been so in love with all the cobalt things and her dining space is such an inspiration for me. Her style is totally my spirit animal! Head over & follow her account to just fall in love! 🖤🖤
I enjoy fashion just as much as I love creating and decorating. We grew up with a LOT of hand me downs & thrift store shopping. As I got older that love continued, sometimes full on & others when I was super busy it waned. But still, here I am, buying previously loved clothing (and shoes) and having a blast with my wardrobe.
Yeah, I want to look good. But I also have goals (#diedebtdie) and buying reg retail isn’t helping me achieve those goals. So, me and my preloved clothes are cozying up. Snuggling tightly. BFFs. 🖤🖤 Note to self: clean up after workout. 😐😐 Blazer, pants, shoes: @dressyourlashes
Top: my closet (no idea)
Playing around with my coffee station a bit to give it a spring jhuzz (aka: sprucing up). Yes, I enjoy coffee, tea & wine so this is a one stop shop! I do, however, need a bit more greenery & things to brighten up the shelves. I have been looking at the thrift shops & shopping my own house for budget friendly ideas to add in. This is a work in progress. Maybe by the time the snow melts, I will have it done...haha!
PS: Swipe to get a close up of my gorj new ochre pottery piece. #swoonworthy
Ah...change is good! #MyBohoShelfie
So we have a thing in our family. Spoons do not go in drawers. Spoons are ALWAYS in spoons jars. My gram, my mom, my aunts, my sisters...we all have ‘em. It only makes sense, really. Do you too, have a spoon jar?
My jar has changed over the years from jam jars to Mason jars to now this gorj little pottery find. The glaze looks like Jack Frost (zoom in). I also found this other piece, which I am deeming the SSH (stir spoon holder) & it matches perfectly! It really is all about the little things!
