Candy Pink Meets Traditional – Canadian Holiday Homes Tour

A Candy Pink Christmas, downstairs… Happy Holidays! And, welcome to my home! How does a little “candy pink Christmas meets traditional and serene” sound? That may sound like a bit of an odd combo, but I had two floors to decorate, and by golly each area was going to get it’s own theme! Let’s start […]

Bath Accessories – One Room Challenge – Week 5

There’s only one week left in the One Room Challenge! I can’t wait to spill the beans and share the whole thing next week, but for today I’m talking bath accessories! I was so inspired by the restrooms in restaurants within heritage buildings, where the history is evident but they’ve been modernized. You can almost […]

A New Look for Fresh Crush!

Hello everyone! If you’ve been by to see me lately, you may have noticed a few colourful updates to the ole’ blog. There’s a bit of pink up there^ … and the home page is looking a little different.

A little inspiration

The main bath in our new-ish digs, is a sad little thing. Old tub surround, peeling paint, cloudy mirror, and a not-so-nice light fixture. The list is long.

A few of the new additions… Owl light: Urban Barn, $39 Striped Rug: IKEA, $19.99 Pendant Ceiling Light: IKEA, $24.99 Faux Sheepskin Rug: IKEA, $12.99 Curtain Fabric: Quilt home, Joel […]

Finally, the paint reveal!

Well, we did our FIRST paint job in the new place! It looks alright… right?! But, I think I should revisit where we started out. This pinky-beige was in every room of the house so we definitely needed to break it up a bit. Here’s how she was looking a couple days before we broke […]

Paint chips and Martha

I had myself a little visit to the Home Depot recently where I met with Martha… ok, browsed her paint selection. Happy to say I found myself a pretty hue for the new living room. My choices don’t really come across in the photo so well… Meh, you get the idea. (Psst! — we chose […]

Our Garden: Nature’s Before and After

After the snow disappeared in Spring, and the grass wasn’t quite green yet, I had to wonder, will the garden actually come back to life? Because, it sure doesn’t look like much right now. Hmmm… Well, behold the power of nature! Bigger and better than last year, and going strong! Let this be proof to […]
