Prospect Park Smorgasburg

The Smorgasburg located in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, reminded us of the good old Hazel Food Market in South Africa. The Hazel Food Market was literally around the corner from our house, and a favourite stop for us every Saturday!! Here in Edmonton the closest thing to these markets would be farmers markets. To tell you…

Main Bathroom Update

Our Main Bathroom Update was done probably about 18 months ago (I know… WAY overdue post!!). We are SO busy updating our house (and doing life), that sometimes I just don’t get around to blogging about it… and then, when I do get time, I’m so overwhelmed by the HUGE amount of things that I…

Grand Central Station – NYC

Grand Central Station is undoubtedly one of the busiest and most beautiful stations in the world. Of course a visit to New York City won’t be complete without a stop at Grand Central. The activity in this place is SUPER CRAZY!!! You really just want to stand in the corner and admire the fact that…

DIY World Map Stain Art

I want to show you guys what I am working on at the moment – a world map stain art piece!! I did this on a 4’x 8′ sheet of plywood with Minwax English Chestnut stain. Since the study is mostly my hubby’s domain, this is what he had in mind for one of our…

2016.11.11 From my Kitchen Window

The only thing that I love about this time of year is that we get to witness these types of sunrises… It might just be one of the prettiest things that exist!!

Edmonton Weather Update

Today is the 8th of October. It has been snowing since last night. I am baking a cake, because it seems like the appropriateΒ thing to do. That is all. Oh, Happy Thanksgiving!

Flatiron Building, New York City

The Flatiron Building on Manhatten is one of the most iconic buildings in the city. Located on Broadway and Fifth Avenue it stand 21 storeys tall. It was originally called the Fuller Building but, you guessed it, because of its shape, localsΒ started calling it the Flatiron Building. The name stuck, and now the whole area…

We spent the weekend in the mountains… our bliss!! Jasper National Park is our happy place… nature, mountains, no cellphones, hiking… we love it! This weekend we went along with a couple of friends, did some new (and old) hiking routes, saw a bear with two cubs… numerous elk and angry squirrels, just relaxed and…

Painting our Dining Room

Way back in February 2014, we started the process of changing our new house… One of the first things that we did, was paint our Dining Room area (today, we no longer use this as our dining room area). I say dining room AREA, because technically we have no designated dining room. When we just…
