First of all – if you are one of Olive’s grandparents, STOP READING NOW unless you want to totally ruin your Christmas gift! Remember y’all…Santa is watching!
If you are not one of Olive’s grandparents, read on for a super cute, simple Christmas gift idea!
Even if you’re not a hippie like I am, shopping for secondhand clothing/furniture should be #1 on your priority list. Why? Well, because you can totally makeover your home (or your wardrobe) on a really small (or, *cough* virtually nonexistent) budget.
This is loooong overdue, and as it’s getting close to Christmas I thought it was high time I wrote about how I transformed an old nightstand into a compact play kitchen for Olive (grainy cell phone photos ahead!)
For months now I’ve had a hankering to do something with my hair. Initially in early spring, I wanted to go red – RED! Red like my all-time favourite girl-crush (and lookalike?) Emma Stone. Something like this:
Hot, right? But I thought about the decision a great deal – as I do about every decision, large and small – and I realised two things. One, the desire for red maaaay be a breakup hair decision. You know about those, right? When you get out of a relationship and all of a sudden you’re FREE and because you’re FREE you decide it’s time to debut that pixie cut you’ve always wanted? Yeah, I think this was one of those.
I’ve always loved it when people do house tours – I love being able to suss out aspects of a person’s personality by seeing fragments of their home, and, logistically speaking it’s waaaay easier than skulking around at night peering in windows.
(Not that I do that.)
I’ve meant to do this since we moved into this little place, and each time I was ready to do it I would grab my camera (by which I mean my phone) and then it would be like, “Oh! My floor is covered in blueberries! Fantastic!”
But over the span of a week I managed to cobble together enough photos that you can get a sense of this space…Behold! Our home, in bits and pieces. These are the views that make me smile.
