Homesense Finds

Don't you just love a good Homesense / Homegoods find? When you browse the aisles for something, anything cute amongst the ugly, tacky stuff and then DING, DING, DING you find something good. Oh the thrill of the hunt.

On my last trip I was searching for a basket that I could use on the main floor for miscellaneous baby gear: diapers, wipes, blankets, books, small toys, etc. I found this basket and knew it would be perfect. Not too shallow, not too deep, handles, square, sturdy, cute, sold.

When I was decorating Cooper's nursery, I was going for the cottage meets industrial vibe. (Does that sound odd, why yes I think it does). I had a few items from Restoration Hardware Baby in mind:

I thought one of these metal shelf do-dads would have looked pretty cool in his room. Buuuut, I couldn't find anything like it. A month or so after I finished his room, I came across this at Homesense:

You know I just had to get it anyway. Especially since the Homesense version was $49 compared to the Restoration Hardware version at $199. I'll most likely hang it up in the stripey room. One day I'll get around to doing that. :)

Your Questions

Your questions on my last post were so awesome! Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate. I can't wait to start putting together a post with all of the answers. Still no videos though. I'd probably say "eh" a trillion times and then you'd laugh at me.

A Guest Post

I don't do a lot of guest posts since I royally suck at submitting things on time, but when Denise at The Painted Home asked me to do a little house tour I just had to say yes.

I had brilliant plans to take all new, updated photos of our house but we all know that that didn't happen. Still, it was an honour to be invited as Denise's style, home, and blog are the ultimate in cottage-y goodness. I'm over there today sharing the photos from my House Tour page.

Possible Road Trip

My mom and I are debating whether or not we want to tackle a little day trip to our favourite cottage stores down South this Saturday. {I posted about some of the fun stores in cottage country here.} That would mean a 3-hour drive there and a 3-hour drive back with a 3-month old baby (who is still "milkshake" feeding). I reallllllllllllly want to go. Is it do-able? Or am I crazy to even think about it?

Wait a minute, how did that Coopster picture get in this post!?!?

Aperature Priority Mode Is My New Best-Friend


Friday, June 10, 2011

A few weeks ago I linked up one of my photos to a link party over at Milestones and Memories. I was super duper flattered when the author of the blog, Andi, invited me to do a guest post about aperature.

Who? Me!?! (Looking around wildly to see if she's looking my way.)

I'm no photography expert that's for sure. But I'm sorta, kinda getting it. So I shared what I've learned about aperature so far and you can check out my totally random very technical explanation over on her blog today:

I included a few recent pictures in my guest post if you want to check them out. They're of flowers and dogs. Just a heads up. ;)
