Do Your Thing

[outfit details]  jumper//vintage [thrifted]  clogs//vintage [thrifted]  necklace//handmade [Clyde’s Rebirth] It’s been just over 2 weeks since we got to Thunder Bay. My time so far has been a little unusual, since its mostly just been running errands and demoing our kitchen. I haven’t had much time to explore new stuff. I mean, we’ve done some sight seeing before when we visited, but it was different then because it wasn’t our home. For now though, I need to get as much grunt work done in the house as possible because my... Read The Rest →

A Home in Thunder Bay

Welcome to the House on Bernard! We’re in it, we’ve been demo-ing like crazy (have a new kitchen coming next week) and brainstorming lots of ideas for the rest of the place. It’s hard not to get ahead of myself, to not be picking out finishes before I’ve ripped out all the lath & plaster (Seriously though. So much lath & plaster!!). That’s one thing that I’m trying to learn, that patience at the beginning, though difficult, is the best way to have spaces you will love still in a... Read The Rest →

Our Stinson Basement Apartment

Ok! We’ve got a house, we’ve got internet (only took a week. Which was actually really hard. Haha. What have we become?) I’ve got a bunch of posts lined up about the new house. But first things first! Before I packed everything up in Hamilton, I took photos of our apartment there. So let me show you where we lived before we moved. For those of you who don’t know, when Dan went back to school 3 years ago we had the whole problem of still needing to pay our... Read The Rest →

Heading North

Hey! Hi! Hello! I’ve just come back from 5 days up in Thunder Bay with Dan. We explored, hung out, drank coffee, took outfit pictures. Oh yeah, and looked at a million houses. Because we’re moving there! AH! A lot of you already knew that, but there it is. Dan is up there now because he got accepted into Lakehead to finish off his bachelor’s degree, and he started summer courses yesterday. So it’s just me here in Hamilton for now until I head back up in a couple weeks... Read The Rest →

transitions

Changing over of the seasons. Eagerly awaiting Spring. (Although, seriously, that was the easiest Winter ever. So I don’t want to hear you complaining, ok?) I’m excited every day to see what’s popping up in my garden though. Because I am that person now. Not sure how it happened, but I’m... Read The Rest →

at home with Elissa&Jay

Hey there! It’s been a couple weeks. I had a final project due in a class I’m taking, so I got a little distracted. But I’ve got a great home tour for you today, so I promise it was worth the wait! I got to visit Elissa a few weeks ago in the home she’s made with her husband Jay and their pup Wendel (his full name is Wendel Bark, how good, right? He’s even got his own insta account.) They moved to the Crown Point neighbourhood about a year... Read The Rest →

at home with Zac&Mieke

I’ve been meaning to stop by my friends Zac and Mieke’s place to take pictures for a while now, but for some reason just never got around to it. And then they told us that they were putting their place on the market and Mieke texted me to see if I could take a few pictures of their family in their first home before it got listed. So this is a little bit family shoot, a little bit home shoot. These things are always so bittersweet, aren’t they? As exciting... Read The Rest →

Grown Up Pants

[[outfit details]]  trousers with suspenders//vintage [thrifted]  top//old [Vera Moda]  necklace//vintage [The Edit]  booties//vintage [thrifted] I just want to say, I’m pretty excited that I’m finally able to say that I own trousers. It just feels right. How else could you even describe these pants? See? Calling them pants just doesn’t them justice. I was excited when I saw them at the thrift store, but also very skeptical. I figured they would look terrible, but I’m all about equal opportunity (and going into the change room as few times as possible)... Read The Rest →

in the studio with Wild Blue Yonder

Hey everyone, so glad you could join me for a tour of Amber Aasman’s studio where she runs her handmade jewelry business Wild Blue Yonder. The studio is in the attic of Amber’s home and it is full of natural light and beautiful jewelry. It was so fun looking around at all her pieces spread throughout the space, in different stages of being finished. Each one is unique, made with found fragments of wood, bark and lichen from travels in our great Canadian outdoors. Often overlooked details are now on... Read The Rest →

at home with Jentine&Matt

I got to visit Jentine (Yen) from The Edit last week in the home that she shares with her husband Matt and two kitty babes, Kyle and Bec. They’ve lived in this house for 6 years, but Yen has lived in Hamilton since her family immigrated here 27 years ago. Funny story, they moved into their current home the same weekend that we moved into ours and they live just around the corner from us, but we weren’t friends yet so we had no idea. But now we go on... Read The Rest →
