Thanksgiving

[outfit details] . fuzzy sweater// [thrifted] . embroidered top//vintage [thrifted] . jeans//Levi’s [Girl on the Wing] . boots//vintage [The Edit] Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I wasn’t sure what our first official holiday away from family would be like, but it turned out more than ok (not to say that we didn’t miss everyone of course). I worked Saturday afternoon, but we finally took a minute to check out the Thunder Bay Country Market in the morning. There was a guy making poffertjes (super delish Dutch mini... Read The Rest →

one thing at a time

[outfit details]  jumpsuit//vintage [thrifted]  clogs//vintage [thrifted]  necklaces//vintage [The Edit] These photos are from a few weeks ago, when the kitchen still had walls. I do believe we took them after we had been out for the morning and then as soon as we were done, I changed into work clothes and tore the rest of the walls down. It’s kind of cool to see how far we’ve come already, even in a few weeks. Because, my goodness, it’s easy to get caught up in/overwhelmed by all the things that still... Read The Rest →

Bernard Kitchen: Inspiration+Progress

[image via Oracle Fox] NOT OUR KITCHEN. Just a little inspiration. Well, I haven’t been around here for a bit, but you better believe I’ve been busy. I flew home 2 weeks ago, packed up the rest of our belongings in truck and trailer and my brother Travis and I drove it up to Thunder Bay. Did it in a day again, although this time around, we had a solid 4 hours of sleep (unlike the 2 hours Dan and I had when we did it the first time. Flight delays,... Read The Rest →

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 →

transitions

[outfit details]  shirt//Levi’s [Marshalls]  jeans//Levi’s [Girl on the Wing]  necklace//handmade [Clyde’s Rebirth]  bracelets//gifted, vintage, H&M  toque//old [my parent’s infinite winter accessories basket]  boots//vintage [thrifted]  bag//handmade with added tassel from a vintage purse [Hands&Feet Handmade] It’s that time of year, huh? 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 →
