Meet Blue Moon Cottage.


Our home has a name! Meet Blue Moon Cottage. Growing up, I was an avid reader and all of my favourite books had named houses in them: Tara of Gone With The Wind, Green Gables of Anne of Green Gables and Orchard House of Little Women, among others, which I found very romantic. I love special names for things- whether…

The Confusion Surrounding Minimalism: Why I’m a #hyggeminimalist.


When you think of minimalism, do you immediately think of empty show home-type rooms? Or clinical white walls? That is what I thought, too!! There is a misconception that you can’t own anything extra and call yourself a minimalist. That you can’t own collections, your room can’t be comfortable, and you can’t have anything on your shelves. Arrange mindfully. Let…

Sleep Stories


I have never been the best sleeper. I think it is because I get anxious at night- I always have. This cartoon explains it perfectly:   Usually those thoughts crop up when I am in that hazy place between asleep and fully awake, which means that as I am about to drift off or just as I am about to…

Timeless French New Wave Fashion


In which I buy myself a new look and discover it is French New Wave style…. The other day, I went through my closet and saw that I had a lot of clothing that I thought I “should” be wearing at my age, as a mom, rather than what I want to be wearing. I ruthlessly cut out what I didn’t…

Organizing Collections and Letting Ideas Flow.


I am supposed to be working. I am supposed to be writing some articles to submit, paying my bills and doing my online course. But I can’t settle into it because my bookshelf is untidy. Also, I see a dust bunny on my floor, and my cabinet is too crowded. I’m having one of those scattered days where every little…

The 5 Best Articles On Minimalism


I’m really into this new minimalism trend. I hope it becomes a lifestyle for most people and doesn’t fade. I support buying less things of greater quality and creating less waste. The shift from rapid consumerism to buying fewer quality goods makes me very happy! Before we bought our house, we knew that we wanted to buy small and only…

Living Room Reveal


It started with a couch. An unexpected purchase. When we found out we were moving, we knew that our L-shaped couch wouldn’t fit in to our new space. There is really only space for a couch in one of two spots. On either wall our old couch would stick out into the room, causing bruised knees as we tried to…

Capsule Wardrobe: Attempt #3


If you live in Calgary, AB, like I do, you know how crazy erratic the weather can be. I’ve lived in three provinces and Alberta is, by far, the craziest. There are no seasons, there are seasons within seasons. It is possible for it to snow in June or rain in January. It is also possible to have really warm…

That’s It. I’m Throwing it On the Lawn and Setting It On Fire!


I really feel like I could do that. I do. But I won’t. We still have quite a lot of stuff. In Marie Kondo’s book, she stresses that you should not declutter your family’s things, just yours. Kondo says that even a three-year-old child will get the decluttering bug if you’re setting a good example and they see how happy…
