I started this blog a year after Hubby and I bought our first house, a townhouse. We've been DIYing together since we met as teens, so of course we bought a fixer upper. We spent years introducing our little 1976 townhouse to the new millennium, but tossed in some vintage furniture and accessories for good measure.
We sold the townhouse, moved 1600km and bought our second house, a lovely but dated year-round cottage on Lake Superior. We're updating this little gem, bit by bit. Obviously a new blog name, new url and new look are in the works but I'm a much better cabinet-painter and tile-destroyer than I am a website-maker.
I am also a total snoop and love seeing into other homes. I like seeing the renovation & design process unfold. What inspires people? Do other people have decorating flops too? How do people really live, outside the glossy world of magazines? And, most importantly, what fun DIY projects have they been up to (and have they thrifted anything cool recently)? Since I'm so curious about the lives of other people, I figured it was only fair I provide a bit of a glimpse into our life, for other snoops (hey there)!
What do we do when we're not DIY-ing up a storm? I recently finished my PhD (anyone looking for a super enthusiastic university prof??). Hubby works in Industrial Maintenance Reliability.
But let's get to the good stuff.
