• Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Hello, Instagram

    Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday! It's #InternationalWomensDay. I hope that Remy will be able to grow up in a world where women have equal rights, equal pay, equal everything. I hope that she will be able to realize her dreams, no matter what they are. I hope that she will fight for those individuals who need fighting for. While I'm so blessed to have a daughter, I also sometimes worry about her future. Yet, I'm reassured in that I know she will continue to be smart, brave, and strong, because she is a woman.

window box vase diy.DSCN6151if you have been following my blog lately, you might have noticed that i write a post about plants at least once a week. 

DSCN6140and why not? it is summer, after all. :-)

this particular diy was one that was featured here before i began blogging on wordpress. the original inspiration for the window box came from urban outfitters.

“it is a fairly straight-forward project. what you need is:

1. wood

2. nails

3. a saw

4. small vases

5. stain (optional)

we chose not to stain our window box, only because most of the wood found around our home is natural or reclaimed. almost any color would look fantastic, though!

p.s. today is my nephew’s 1st birthday! congratulations on turning a year old, little guy. :-) 

we love you more than anything!

  1. Hi Scarlet! This is Isabel from shoebox-living. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I’ve spent a solid 30 minutes reading thought some of your posts! Love the story about your little green house! I know all about living in small spaces as me and my BF are tucked into a 25 sqmt apartment in Hong Kong! With a lot of personality and character though :) sometimes smaller is better!

    Can’t wait to see more from the inside of your home :)

    Hugs Isabel
