If you leave the space empty, the kitchen can look cold, unfinished and might sound hollow, not the best solution either. There are lots of online locations that share ideas to create a scene above the cupboards, however, I like to personalize…

Food Banks – Summer Donations

A food bank is defined as: a place where stocks of food, typically basic provisions and non-perishable items, are supplied free of charge to people in need. I am pretty sure there is a food bank in every small town and large city throughout Ontario but what do they really offer and who uses them. I would like to say that Food Banks are for a small percentage of our population but sadly, food banks throughout Canada are used far…

Outdoor Cushions- No-Sew Throw Pillows

Good Afternoon and Happy Friday. Yesterday I pulled into my driveway and thought. WOW, my front porch looks deserted. It looked like the winter decor had been pulled from the planters, not replaced and well, depressing. I had purchased 2 grey metal chairs last weekend at a discount store for $20 each. I figured it was time to make our home look like we embraced Spring and weren’t afraid of it 🙂 I went to a thrift store in Hyde…
