White Wedding

This post has nothing to do with weddings or Billy Idol. Just white and that is the only name that came to mind.
So I painted the family room this week. I've been LOVING white lately. So much you can do with it and it's just so clean and refreshing. I'd love to do my whole house. Garrett wasn't sold on the idea so I started with the family room. He likes it! So eventually we'll work on the whole house. Maybe. It's a lot of work. 
Here are some photos....
Kinda want to change the fireplace now but one thing at a time!

Right portion of the mantle. Can't wait to redo it now!

Left portion. Love white on white.

I've been looking to thrift a globe for a while now. Zara seen this one the other day. Training them up right. Good little thrifters.

Oh how barren does this look? Need new lighting and
 something for the walls. 

This is the girls art table. Yes it is ALWAYS this messy.
Need to find a new place for it. Do not want writing on my white walls.

Here are a couple pictures of the girls fresh from the bath tonight.

Poor Kanya is sick. AGAIN. Her nose is so red from wiping it.

Classic Zara. Her cheeks are rosy because she wore leggings under her jeans all day and was SOO hot. Her forehead is red because she brushes it when she combs her hair. Ouch.
And lastly here is a little shop update. A couple of my favourite things I have listed right now. 

Vintage Fisher Price Crib Toy

Felted Baby Parka.
Love the little penuins.

Burnt Orange Girls Lace Dress.
Such cute details.

Winter Wonderland....

So apparently June isn't coming back and it's time to move on! Yikes. Not even gonna comment on my terrible blogger syndrome.

    Lately I've had the itch to do some changes in the house. Nothing huge just a little face lift. I thought I would maybe share my little changes on here. Heavy on the maybe. I don't have the greatest track record. I haven't started anything yet but hopefully by the weekend something will get done. I'm thinking of starting in the family room. It is the most 'lived' in room and needs a bit of a change. I change the display on my piano and mantel with the seasons so for now that is all your gonna get. Here is my winter mantel!

Pretty much just blues and browns

I got a bunch of old winter photos. I've had fun moving them all around.

The 'water-less' snowglobes are a Anthropologie knock off.
And that is why I haven't been canning....they turn into craft projects! 

The tin cannisters are a one of my favourite treasures I've thrifted over the years!

All my little wooden, rustic ornaments. Mostly all from Chapters.

This guys is my favourite. His eyebrows just make my day!

And the piano....
A little boring.

Some of my milk glass vase collection.

This and  that on a doily my Great Grandma crochet'd!

A blurry picture of my garland.
My dear mother knit those wee little mittens, hat and sweater!

I've deleted all the pictures of the summer mantel but came across this one of the piano....

Another blurry shot. Had some vintage dresses hanging in my frame.
Handmade pinwheels. Vintage teacup.
Hopefully pictures of a change are to I'm off to eat a banana lathered in Nutella! Yum!
