Dressed up for the holidays

Posted on Sun, 23 Dec 2012 by KiM

I am finally done my Christmas preparations (besides food) and can start to relax for my week off from the day job (check out my super cheap gift wrapping solution on my page). Since I’m in the holiday mood, I thought I’d share a couple of really cute apartments I found on Micasa that are spruced up with a bit of festive decor. P.S. Jo and I never quit, so there will be blog posts up throughout the holidays. We typically do blog reading lists and favourites rooms from this past year so don’t forget to stop by!

Some bloglovin’

Posted on Sun, 16 Dec 2012 by KiM

I had Friday off from my day job (I love/need my compressed Fridays) so I spent a bit of time scouring Bloglovin’ for some eye candy. I thought I would share with you some of my finds. I tried to keep it in the spirit of the holidays or the gawd-awful cold weather, with some blogs I am familiar with and some that are new to me. P.S. You can follow our main blog on Bloglovin’ here, my page here, and Jo’s page here. ENJOY!

Another Christmas greeting

Posted on Sat, 24 Dec 2011 by KiM

Merry Christmas everyone! Because I had no time this year to decorate my house, I decided instead to decorate some of my cats. Jo already published our Christmas greeting but I had to share some of these pics with you all. The first one is dedicated to my blogging buddy and dear friend Jo, as Lucky is her favourite of my herd of 7.

(After torturing the cats I put the lights in an old pickle jar in the window. Voila. My decor for this year).

Merry Christmas!

Kim and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you, our readers, the very best this holiday season. May your days be merry and bright, may your families stay safe and may the new year bring all that you desire. It’s been a topsy turvy year with some crazy highs and some best forgotten lows but we’ve made it and now all there is to do is eat too much, get a little tipsy and tell our loved ones how much we care.

We are signing off for Christmas Day but I’ll be back soon for a week of reading guides. So many blogs to explore! The following week Kim will be posting all her favourites from the year. Can’t wait for that because she found some amazing room porn in 2011. Better run. I have yet another cake in the oven and I need to prep my veggies for tomorrow’s lunch. Merry Christmas friends!

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas

Looking for something just a little different for Christmas decorations? Take a little inspiration from interior designer Chad Falkenberg who has just finished “decking the halls” of a number of Vancouver shops and restaurants for the season.  A wreath made from 100 beer cans, an upside down Christmas tree made from ribbon wrapped kraft paper boxes and a twinkle arch made of live plum trees. Don’t tell my husband about that wreath or we’ll be working through a couple of cartons of beer to get one made before the big day! And I don’t even like beer. You can see more on Chad’s blog.
