Fall is here in all it's beauty.  We've been enjoying lots of brisk autumn hikes, pumpkin spice latte's and cinnamon apple candles over here.  We're sucking everything we can out of fall, knowing that the cold winter days are coming.  It seems that the summer passed by so quickly for us, and then we were hit with wonderful fall, and now Christmas seems to also be quickly approaching.  Yes, I said Christmas, and let's face it, once halloween is over next week, and the first of November rolls around, Christmas preparation will be in full swing.  

What better way to prepare for the Christmas season, then to attend a show with local artisans displaying their talents for your gifting needs?  Please welcome 'Spice'!  You may remember an event that we held in the spring called 'Bloom', well, that event was so well supported and attended that we decided a fall event must be in order.  We've been planning the last few weeks, what is sure to be a great time of perusing locally made products and time to enjoy a taste of the winter season.  

Please visit our facebook page for a few more details, join the event and share with friends if you are interested.  

Come join us at 'SPICE' to welcome in the Christmas season! Bring your friends. Open to everyone!
Peruse local artisans merchandise from paintings to stationary, purses to scarves, preserves to baking, jewelry to knitted items. You will be sure to find the perfect gift for all on your list. 

Enjoy fellowship, door prizes, light refreshments and a taste of the winter season.
Raffle tickets available to purchase for a gift basket, with all proceeds donated to our local pregnancy resource centre.

Event begins on:
Friday November 16th at 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. for a sneak peek (purchases can be made).
Reopens on Saturday November 17th at 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Remembering when, with family

Sun sets on the horizon, and I settle my brain down in the home that I was raised, with my babes sleeping soundly in the next room.  It's a comforting feeling being back in the home that I spent so much time in and grew up in.  It fits like a well worn slipper, with all the grooves marked out inside for your individual toes.  The stairs creak in the same spots that they used to, and I instinctively avoid the areas that I know cause the most noise.  I could climb those stairs in my sleep.  Oh, the memories built around a simple set of plain oak wood stairs.  First days of high school, coming home from long work shifts, university, dates, weddings, pregnancy and carrying new born babes in arms...if those stairs could talk...They could tell a lot of stories. And, we make new ones everyday.

Quickie Friday Photo Post {GIVEAWAY}

The kiddos are all sleeping which is a rare occasion in this house, so this will be a quicky.  Yesterday was one of 'those' days.  You know the ones? When you're still nuking your 1 o'clock coffee at 4 o'clock, wondering why on earth they ever made sleepers with buttons (they should only be made with zippers),  all you would like is just a 5 minute nap on the couch, when you don't want to see another poopy diaper or clean the disaster of toys one more time.  Honestly, sometimes it's easy to say that the sight of those sweet faces just melt your heart, make everything worth it ect, but yesterday was not that day.  Sometimes all you want is to see a new face, or no faces at all, and perhaps just a sunset, book and beach.

Transformation: From drab to fab

A little while ago I was asked to come take a look at the facility for one of our local churches.  The Barrie Gospel Hall is currently temporarily renting a facility, and it needed a little help to soften the look of the space.  As you can see below, the back wall of the facility is a harsh looking metal wall with brown studs with a garage and exit door.  Needless to say, it is a bit of an eye sore when you walk into the building, so they decided that draping may be a good option for sprucing up the space.

Thanks to my 10 years of event decor experience and the knowledge of some handy men, we were able to quickly devise a plan as
