in november

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.14.51 PMWelcome, December readers!

Another month has gone by, and here we are only weeks away from Christmas and the New Year. Say what? 

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.15.23 PMHere is what happened over on Hello, Scarlett in November.

IMG_0001I celebrated the passing weeks of my pregnancy. I began the month at 22 weeks, and ended it at 26 weeks! Baby is now the size of an eggplant. Huzzah! #🍆

In The Store - 3There were many OOTDs and promotions in the store this month. I also had two fashion posts. One featured a romper that I had purchased online, and the other a dress that I bought in town.

Kinfolk_Vol17_TheBloodMenu-2There were three food-related posts as well. The first was a brilliant dessert, the second was a look into coffee, and the third was a mason jar brownie recipe.

Red Jenny LindI discussed our new crib in this post. I also introduced my newest nephew to all of you!

DIY Sonogram Frame - 5There was only one DIY this month. It centred around babies, of course.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.13.30 PMAs for our weather, we went from having no snow to having a lot of snow. Much of it has since melted, and for the rest of this week we will be having temperatures above 0°C (32°F). That is extremely warm for the prairies.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.14.29 PMLast but not least, I not only celebrated my 30th birthday, but said goodbye to my mother as well. (Don’t worry, she’s still alive!)

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.14.10 PMAll in all it was a fairly easy month. Now, to start preparing for the madness that is December.

Thirty - 9Have a wonderful Tuesday!

our trip in photos

Jan Lake Lodge - Trip 4Happy Labour Day, Canada and USA!

Jan Lake Lodge - Trip 1In keeping with the holiday theme, I wanted to share with everyone the pictures that were taken on our most recent vacation. I chose to do things a little differently this time around. Rather than relying solely on my digital camera and iPhone, I had purchased a disposable camera prior to our trip. I was worried that I was going to quickly burn through 27 photos, and would need to buy more than one. To my surprise, it was actually the other way around. I found myself being extremely selective about what I chose to document. Come the last day, I had not yet used the entire roll. Keep in mind that last year, I took over 300 pictures with my Canon. 

Jan Lake Lodge - Trip 7Jan Lake Lodge - Trip 6While the quality is much more grainy, and the cost of the camera and to develop the photographs came to around $40 (a little steep), I actually think that I prefer to use rolls of film rather than digital prints. It made me much more aware of my surroundings, in addition to cherishing the results that much more. Besides, there’s nothing more exciting than waiting a few days to see the results. At least for me, that is.

cross medicine cabinet : diy

Medicine Cabinet DIY 6-1When we were designing The Little Barn, we always knew that one of the most important rooms would be the mudroom. The reason for its significance was the fact that it had to serve various roles, from an office space, to a boot room, to a greenhouse, to a laundry room, to a dog room. While we ended up removing two of those five functions, the three most important (laundry, boots, and dogs) stayed. Because this mudroom would serve as a bedroom, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, porch, and apothecary for our own animals, I wanted to make sure that it was well-equipped with everything that they could ever need and I could ever want for them. 

IMG_0134Holly has quite a few medical issues, all of which I have chronicled over the last year. This results in her having a number of medications. Rather than keeping her medicine with ours, I wanted to make her a whimsical storage unit. It was also my way of putting a positive spin on her medical issues. Plus, it looks damn delightful in their mudroom.

Medicine Cabinet DIY 1This is what you’ll need to make your own hand-painted Cross Medicine Cabinet:

Glass cabinet
Glass paint
Brushes
Q-tip
Painter’s tape
Measuring tape

Steps:

Medicine Cabinet DIY 21. Lay the medicine cabinet flat on the ground. Using the measuring and painter’s tape, measure and mark off a symmetrical cross that will be located in the centre of the cabinet.

Medicine Cabinet DIY 32. Take the base paint colour and brush. Fill in the cross. 

Medicine Cabinet DIY 43. Once the base coat is dry, take the border colour and outline the cross. I did mine using a freehand method, but you can also use the painter’s tape for cleaner lines.

Medicine Cabinet DIY 54. Once that coat is dry, it is ready to be installed and used!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Ok, this is directed to all you green thumbs out there. How often should I be watering this guy? I’ve recently jumped from keeping succulents to now house plants, and I don’t seem to be doing very well with the latter. He is in a window facing south west. I was watering him once a week and his leaves were falling out. Then I tried three times a week, and the tips of his leaves turned brown. Do I change the plant pot? Fertilize? Water less? I’m at a loss. Help! 🌿 @omgkersh is leaving us today for another four weeks. Looks like it’s just you and me, kid. P.S. You’re a pretty fun partner, so I’m kind of ok with that. P.P.S. We decided yesterday to cover up these floors rather than trying to save them. So I will only grace you with their beautiful state for a few weeks longer.
