New skirt!

I recently found this awesome chiffon at Fabricland and, naturally, I had to have it.  I was going to make it myself (during the last 2 weeks leading up to my wedding - ya right), but my amazing Aunt Donna took it home with her and "whipped it up" for me.  I'm so blessed, I know.  It fits perfectly and is super comfortable - love it!  (Plus I just realized it has BOTH the chevron and geometric prints I've been loving lately!)

Happy Autumn!

It's the first day of fall!  While I do love summer, I have to admit I'm enjoying the cooler weather and anticipation of the changing colours of the maple trees around our neighbourhood.  I'm looking forward to eating more pumpkin pie than I should and spending time with family at Thanksgiving.  In honour of the new season, I thought I'd share a few colours I'd like to experiment with this fall...

- Colour palette - {design seeds}
- Plaid shirt - Old Navy
- Blue tea kettle - Paula Deen for Kohls
- Red Perforated Toms -
- Yellow Linen Armchair - Anthropologie
- Orange Kate Spade cross body bag - Alice in Wanderlust

Have a happy autumn everyone!

Geometric Prints

Speaking of prints I'm loving lately...I think I'll have to give this one a try somewhere.  I love the simplicity of the basic shapes and the interesting patterns they can create.

Kitchen Cupboard Makeover

My first big home DIY project is completed!  I've been wanting to re-do these kitchen cabinets since I moved in last October, and decided to finally get moving on the project before putting all of our lovely new wedding gifts away.  We pulled off all of the cabinets, carted them to my dad's shop, and he sprayed them with his handy pressure sprayer.  Then we put them all back on and shopped around (by that I mean headed to Home Depot), and found some new handles.  While the cabinets were off, my good friend Tory repainted the walls to a nice grey (I'm not a huge fan of beige).  And voila!  I'll estimate this makeover cost about $120 + time.  And I love it!
