IMG_3511 Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! I am a stay-at-home mom of three wacky and wonderful kids. My fabulous husband works hard so I can blog full-time. Seriously, I spend way too much time here!

In April 2008, we moved into a brand new builder home (you can read about our journey to home ownership in “Parade of Homes”). I like to decorate, and now I have a blank canvas to work with, but it’s a slow process. I have more ideas than cash and energy!

I have always been thrifty, and try to be careful with the household budget, though I don’t always succeed. While thrift-store shopping is not new to me, in the last year or so I have really developed an addiction. There’s something very satisfying about finding things for my home and family that would have cost much more retail.

This blog is my creative outlet to write about all of that and more (or nothing in particular). Please leave a comment; I'd love to hear from you!

Glad to have found your blog! I can't wait to read more about your decorating saga (from a girl who also is long on ideas and way short on cash!).

I didn't realize that you were a Canadian. I am also, I just started reading decorating blogs a few months ago. I really enjoy your, and share your passion for thrifting. Char

Great Blog!!! I am new to the blog world. I have no desire to do it, but have found myself addicted to viewing others. I can't believe how creative people are. I am also a thrift store junkie. I can't wait to see what good ideas you have :)
