hello crates!

IMG_1

as i have mentioned before, little green is very short on space. thus, our obsession for crates knows no bounds. (remember our post here and here?) we love them!

our latest haul of crates came from two different places, the dollar store and our local thrift store. in total we spend only $4.50 on them. i would say that they were a pretty good deal. ;-)))

the first crate hangs above my sewing station. it is the perfect size for holding my little bobbins.

the second crate can be found beside our front door. this is where we put all of our current bills. hello responsible home ownership!

we removed the handle on the third crate, so that it may comfortably display one of our cameras in our beloved camera station. this particular area is becoming one of my favorites!

what tricks do you have to save on space around your home?

    • yes, it’s amazing sometimes what you can find at thrift stores, and then transform into beautiful yet useful pieces once you bring them home!

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

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
