Spring Home Tour 2017

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I’m so excited to be sharing my Spring Home Tour with you today, and joining in with 20 other Canadian bloggers for The Canadian Bloggers Spring Home Tour hosted by AKA Design and The DIY Mommy.  There will be beautiful Spring Home Tours all week, so be sure to check out all the others at the end of the post.

When I started working on the Spring Home Tour, I realized I’ve never shared one on the blog before, although I decorate for Spring and Easter each year, so I’m extra excited to share it with you today.  I’ve taken tons of pictures, so I hope you’ll grab yourself a coffee and enjoy.

Let’s get started in the entrance way.  I’ve added a few Spring touches to my console table.

You can see how I made the Gold Leaf Easter Eggs here, and I’ve hung them on some pretty pussy willows I found on a walk one day.

I painted a few wooden beads for a pretty pastel Spring look.  These wooden beads were a fun recycling project.  I found an old wooden bead seat cover at a garage sale and thought up-cycling the beads would be a great inexpensive way to make some pretty garland.  You can see how I made the Mason Jar Oil Lamps here.

One of my favourite little touches in my Spring decor this year are the pretty faux mushrooms.  I made these ones from some air dry clay, and they turned out so cute.

At the entrance of the dining room, my little bar cart is all ready for some Spring entertaining.

I picked up this little vintage toy truck ages ago at an antique shop.  I used it for Christmas a few years ago, and it hasn’t been out since.  I thought the pretty aqua was perfect for spring.

And, I’ve found the secret to beautiful succulents…faux. 😉

On the dining room table, I’ve created a little spring forest.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I began with a beautiful moss runner down the centre of the table.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I picked the moss in the forest, and let it dry before using it as a runner.  I wanted a woodland spring look, so I added some ferns, and birch, butterflies and mushrooms, and a few spring bulbs.

On the buffet, I added some pretty eggs to my wooden bowl.

What could be more spring like than a beautiful bowl of eggs?

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I love the mix of the wood, and white and soft pastels -along with more of the moss and few pretty feathers.

It’s amazing how some green and fresh flowers makes everything feel alive again.

From the dining room, we head into the living room.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I’ve carried the spring forest feel all through the main floor, with little touches.

This Spring Mantel is one of my favourite spots this year too.

I found a few free printables for the pretty antique specimen art and used some mini wooden clothes pins to attach them to a branch.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I wanted to create the feel of a walk in the forest, and all the treasures I’d found and brought home with me.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

More mushrooms here, some that I made out of paper mache last year, and a beautiful antler that I really did find on a forest walk this Spring.

There are a few little wire fairy lights too, so everything can sparkle at night.

Over on the over side of the room, tea and some Spring recipe ideas.

I’m just loving the simplicity of the wooden beads in all different sizes right now.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I’ve added some pretty floral cushions for Spring too.

On the book case I’ve kept things pretty simple and neutral.

I had to bring out my Spring Dioramas -see how I made them here, that are from last year.

Over in the kitchen, I love the Spring sunshine, now that it’s back.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

On the table, a really simple wooden trough -I think it might have been the top tray of an old tool box, and I found it at an antique market.  I’ve filled it with more moss, and pretty eggs, including these simple Cement Easter Eggs I made last year.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

Over on my little cupboard, I’ve strung more of the wooden beads, for just a tiny bit of Spring colour.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

The copper houses have turned into pretty terrariums for Spring.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

And this little nest is the perfect Spring detail.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I seem to be completely in love with tiny mushrooms, and these little wooden ones I bought at the Christmas market this year just had to stay out to welcome Spring.

Spring Home Tour: A forest inspired spring home tour with lots of woodsy details to inspire.

I think because I have a new puppy, I’ve been out walking and exploring the green spaces and forest around my house more than ever this past year.  It’s inspired me to bring the outdoors and the sense of wonder and tiny treasures inside.  I hope maybe I’ve inspired you a little too -get out for a walk and see what you can find.

With a pretty Spring Home Tour, life really is a party.

Now be sure to check out all the inspiration from my Canadian blogging friends!

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Welcome!  I’m so excited you’re here for my Christmas Home Tour.  It’s Day Two of the 2016 Canadian Bloggers Christmas Home Tour hosted by The DIY Mommy, be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post so you can visit all the other beautiful homes.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

My front door is all dressed up for Christmas, I’ll be sharing more about it tomorrow for our #12monthsofdiy -so be sure to come back and see how I used yarn this year.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Now, come on in where it’s warm.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The first room in our house is the dining room.  I’ve just finished re-doing it for the One Room Challenge -you can read all about it here.  It was a big job, but I’m so glad I did.  It was so fun to decorate my new white and bright Scandinavian inspired space for Christmas!

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Near the front door I have a little console table, and it’s holding my diy mason jar oil lamps.  There’s something about Christmas and lights.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I’ve stuck with the Scandinavian feel for Christmas. I love the simplicity of Scandinavian design, the clean lines, the simple colours, and all the natural touches.  This has really been the Christmas of bringing the outdoors in.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I wanted to create a forest feel in here, so I cut down five little poplar trees and brought them in for the holidays.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I used some cement in some pretty galvanized buckets to hold them.  It’s worked really well.  On top of the cement, I added some faux snow.  It’s like a wintry forest in here, and I love the fairy lights, especially at night.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Near the door, our little bar cart is ready for some holiday merry making with pretty vintage glasses.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I love the little stir sticks.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

My sister gave me this pretty little terrarium for my birthday, and I turned it into a fun snow globe for Christmas.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I kept the dining room pretty simple.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I love using neutrals even for Christmas because it’s so calming and serene.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I used these pretty paint dipped candle sticks holders –see how I made them here, just thrift store brass candle stick holders with a little makeover.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

At the other end of the room, is the beautiful vintage book deer art -you can see how I made it here.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I upped the merry factor with the addition of five pretty hoop wreaths.  These are so easy to make, just some hoops and fresh greens wired on.  I love the simplicity of them.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

These wooden trees make it even more Christmas-y.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

We got so many candy canes at our local Santa Clause Parade this year, so I added a few for a festive touch in this pretty little marble bowl.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I’m really in love with this new white, bright space, and I can’t wait to paint the rest of the main floor white.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The dining room leads onto the stairs, and the living room.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I like to put the Christmas tree at the bottom of the stairs so we can enjoy it from the living room and dining room.

Scandinavian christmas tree

In keeping with the Scandi vibe, I’ve kept it really simple and natural.  I found my little Charlie Brown tree in the woods, and I love how bare it is.  It’s surrounded by a few treasures, and our families Story Book Advent Calendar -you can read more about it here.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The stairs are also simple and natural, we layered grapevine and pine boughs that I gathered on a walk one day.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

In front of the stairs is my new chair from Wayfair, and I just love it.  I wanted something that fit the space, and was tufted, and neutral, and this little chair was perfect.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The little table is a new addition too, and the perfect place for a cup tea, next to the fire.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

This years mantel is a little different and I just love it.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Corner fireplaces can be tricky so I used an old vintage window frame to fill up some space and a pretty branch attached to it.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The little house lanterns are holding the sweetest little mushrooms.  It very Scandinavian to include mushrooms on your Christmas tree, usually red, and inspired my mushroom fireplace mantel.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I love how they look like snowy little specimens in their glass houses.  They make me wonder if the fairies will visit?

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

On the other side of the room, a cozy chair to curl up in.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

The side table is just some vintage crates, but works perfectly for a rustic touch.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

My sweet sister came and rearranged my bookcases for me.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Sometimes you just need fresh eyes, and I love what she did.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

On the other wall is the couch, and a pass through to the kitchen.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

On the ottoman, a sweet little tray and some candles.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

And up on the pass through, a sweet collection of vintage oil cans.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I’ve been collecting them over the last few years, I love the mix of shapes and metals.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Above the oil cans, is another branch, holding some pretty Christmas decorations.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

And in the kitchen, we’ve been working on a few tiny gingerbread houses.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

They look so pretty all decorated in white.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

And then over to the kitchen table, with perhaps my favourite decoration this year.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I found this old wooden dough bowl at an antique fair last year, and I love it holding some of my vintage Christmas ornaments.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

Over the years, I’ve picked them up mostly at second hand stores, and although everything else is neutral this year, I love this pop of vintage colour.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

This little cabinet is a new addition this year, and was lots of fun to decorate.  We got the most delightful puppy this summer and I needed some where to store all his bits and bobs.  The cabinet has worked out great.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

I set up a sweet little hot chocolate stand.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

My girls love having all kinds of yummy marshmallows to choose from.

2016 Christmas Home Tour: Woodland Scandinavian Christmas

And last but not least, these pretty knit stockings hung on some birch poles I cut down in the forest.

Thanks so, so much for dropping by to see all my Christmas decorations, lots found on walks in the woods, or old favourites from years past, and a few new treasures thrown in too -the perfect combo.

The house all decorated for Christmas, life really is a party!

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room Reveal -One Room Challenge

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

I’m so excited to finally show you my One Room Challenge final room reveal!  It’s week six of the challenge, and it’s finally all come together -be sure to check out all the other final reveals of all the other guest bloggers this week too.

I was inspired by Rustic Scandinavian Design, and wanted to make my dining room lighter, and brighter with a rustic touch.  Here’s what the room looked like six weeks ago.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

If you’ve missed anything, catch up with us here:

Before the makeover the walls were beige, and the furniture was all dark black.  Over the six weeks, we painted the room white, painted some of the furniture white and changed the hardware, refinished the table to a light grey, made slipcovers for the chairs, spray painted the chandelier gold and made some new art for the room.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

It was a lot to do, but I love the results.  It’s certainly lighter and brighter.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

At the front door, I painted the black console table to white, and added this new sweet art work -it’s the Racoon Print from DamaDigitalDesign.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Love his expression, love the black and white, and love the bit of whimsy it adds to the room.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

I tried to use lots of the colour white, wood, and natural materials to bring the whole room together.

I picked up some more pretty gold vintage bar glasses at a second hand store this week, I’m all ready for cocktail hour.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

Don’t you just love their little carrying caddy?

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

At the other end of the room the buffet was also painted and got new vintage inspired hardware.  The art was a fun project.  I promise a full tutorial soon.  I love the way it came out, and the vintage books as the canvas turned out great.  The image is based on one from PrintAvenue and was transferred to the books.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

One of my favourite little vignettes in the room is this wooden dough bowl filled with fine crochet thread for lace making.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

With a neutral room, lots of texture is important to add interest, so when I a saw a bag of the thread at the second hand store one day, I picked it up and kept my eye out for a few more bags in the weeks that followed.  I love how they look grouped together in the wooden bowl.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

The old books are a bunch my mom had in an old trunk.  I mentioned to her that I was looking for some, and she offered them too me and they were perfect for what I had in mind. See the tutorial of how I made the deer head book art here.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

This week I refinished the dining room table –see the tutorial here.  What a job it was.  It was hours and hours of work but my dark black table is now a beautiful weathered grey and I love it!

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

After the first few hours of work, I never would have believed it would come out looking this amazing.  I had a friend who does a lot of restoring of antiques helping me, and without him I don’t think I would have been able to do it.  Since this is a newer factory made piece, it was really difficult to remove the baked on finish.  With lots of perseverance and a few tricks of the trade we did it, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.  The Minwax classic grey stain looks amazing.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

You can see the beautiful china cabinet in the background too.  I love it white!

And let’s not forget the beautiful gold chandelier, that got a makeover last week, and went from standard silver, to amazing gold statement light.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

I’m so glad the room is done.  Having the house a little on the upside down side of things for six weeks had its challenges, but I’m so glad I did.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

Week by week and project by project I saw it all come together.

I wasn’t sure at first, that what I had envisioned would really come to life.  I felt like I had to be brave and trust my gut, and I’m so glad I did.  I really love it now, and even though it’s a small thing in the grand scheme, I’m reminded that if we are brave enough to change things -things that weren’t even so bad in the beginning, we might get something amazing, something we love.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

It’s easier to change things in life and in decorating when they are terrible, but it’s a lot harder when they’re ok, but not great, and we’re afraid we might wreck them instead of making them better.  I have heard a little whisper in my ear as I’ve painted, and refinished, and sewn for this room, a little whisper calling me to be brave and try new things, and see what I might be able to create and accomplish.   So I’m listening and trying to learn my lessons, and so glad for the space to try new things.

Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room: final reveal of the six week dining room makeover.

I can’t wait to tackle the living room in the spring (when my sweet, but very orderly husband has had time to recover from six weeks of not so much order as he’s used too -ahhh we’re all being stretched).

Thanks so much to my readers who’ve hung in with me, and given me so much kind and generous encouragement over the process.  I’ve appreciated it so much.

And a special thank you to my sponsors who’ve supplied me with some truly amazing products, and made this makeover possible.  

  –  Fusion Mineral Paints   –  DamaDigitalDesign  –    Minwax  –   Para Paint   –   PrintAvenue   –

As always, all opinions are my own.  Thanks for supporting the brands that make Life is a Party possible.

With a new Rustic Scandinavian Dining Room to enjoy, life really is a party!

Canadian Fall Home Tour

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

I’m so excited to be part of the Canadian Bloggers Fall Home Tour this year, hosted by The DIY Mommy.

Fall is a real favourite of mine, and I love decorating to celebrate the season.  This year I’ve used lots of neutrals, but you might find a few traditional fall colours here and there, like on the front porch.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

I had so much fun making these little fall fairy gardens to greet my guests -you can learn all about how I made them here.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

It’s gotten chilly outside the last day or so, so do come right in.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

At our front door we have this little console table, all decorated for fall.  I used lots of pumpkins every where this year, love this pretty green squash mixed in with some faux ones.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

These  mason jar oil lamps are waiting for a dark night, and there’s a little bowl of butterscotch candies.  My grandma always had a bowl of candy by the front door.  Her’s were in a covered glass dish and usually chocolates…remember rosebuds?  I’m not a real chocolate girl, but I always like to have a little bowl of candy at the front door and it always makes me think of her.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

The dining room is very neutral this years, and I’m loving all the white and creams together.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

I picked up this long wooden box at an outdoor antique fair in September and thought it would look great when I got it home filled up with little pumpkins.  It was filled with tools when I found it, and I had to convince the man to sell me just the box.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

There was a fair bit of haggling, and in the end I told him my plan to fill it with pumpkins and put it on my dining room table and he smiled as he dumped out his tools.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

We have lots of oak trees on our street, so I picked a few branches on my way home from running errands today.  Love the shape of their leaves.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

On the buffet at the end of the room a few more great vintage pieces.  I’m loving the look of the tarnished silver with all the white pumpkins.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

This pretty pumpkin with the book page roses is from a few years ago, you find the tutorial for it here.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

More book pages up above on the branch -a pretty garland of stitched book paper leaves see how I made them here.

And into the living room next.

I’m so pleased with this new hanging pendant light.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

It’s the perfect little update for this spot.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

I’m loving my squirrels, oak leaves, acorns this fall.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

And here’s what’s sure to be the last of the pompom marigolds from my garden.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

The centre piece of the mantel this year is this white wooden tool box.  I got such a good deal on the wooden tray for the dining room table, that I ended up buying this as well -ha.  I love a little haggling.  And I think it looks great filled up with a pretty vintage wool blanket, birch logs, cotton blossoms and more white pumpkins.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

Down on the ground, more of the same (let’s just hope my new puppy doesn’t take a bite out of the pumpkins).

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

And last but not least, into the kitchen for a treat.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

On the table I’ve set up some pumpkins smores.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

Find my recipe for the delicious caramel pumpkin butter here -the perfect addition to fall smores made over a candle.

Today it was the perfect after school snack for my girls on this chilly rainy day.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

And behind the table is a great spot for a few more pumpkins.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

I’ll be sharing a tutorial for these driftwood pumpkins and velvet pumpkins next week.  They’re easy to make and so cute.

Fall Home Tour: Neutral, cozy fall home tour.

With the house all decorated for fall, life really is a party!

I’m so glad you stopped by for my little fall tour, and I’d love for you stop by and visit with all my friends.
