Here, kitty, kitty…

Put in new laminate grey flooring.

(Replaced bright pink carpet!)

Take a right turn and you will find the world!

Quilt made by my Nan, many years ago.

(Incorporates all the colours of the room together.)

Classroom map that, once upon a time, was used at my old high school.

Armoire love affair:

Purchased at the Antique Market in Waterford.

(Originally made in Montreal).

Painted, “key” knobs from Stratford, & filled to the brim with all my favourite clothes.

Vintage butter box.

Old barn farm door as headboard.

Side tables found on the road, repainted red.

Good as new!

Wake up in the morning:

A-OK kinda day!

This above all; to thine own self be true.

You maybe can’t tell, but my shirt says,

“Love that beaver.’

No joke.

And now, time to curl up with a good book.

Vintage is the new modern.

Don’t you think?

No matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you’ll never get through it without your friends.

If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude.

Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted. And experience is the most valuable thing you have to offer.

Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.
