Hello everyone,
 how are you? are you ready for the weekend? I am, it’s been very busy around here. I had plans to start decorating our home for the Holidays but haven’t had much free time lately. I’m glad to be here today to share with you a project I finished two weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to post.
 Remember, my previous post; ‘where I blog’, I showed you the state of my dining room desk and there was a white deer head on top of it? don’t worry, it wasn’t a real deer head.
 Well, I got it from Deserres over 3 weeks ago at half price, it’s a ... http://nowathomemom.com/paper-mache-deer-head/

Hello everyone,
 hope you are having a great week, here it’s been good but very busy because I’ve been working on this fun project for my little nephew and I wanted to make sure I could give it to him before December 1st. I wanted to post about it since last week but I only started working on it this weekend and with Nate around I’m lucky to have finished this project at all.
 As I’m writing this post (Tuesday evening), I’m having difficulties focusing on this post because he is trying to reach for everything from our kitchen island and counters with the help of our orange pouf.
 Please let me share with on how I put this fun Advent Calendar together … http://nowathomemom.com/want-to-impress-a-6-year-old-diy-a-latch-containers-advent-calendar/

Good morning everyone,
 I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a little cold around here, so I stayed in, cozy in my pyjamas all Sunday. I took time to start decorating the house for Christmas. Have you started decorating yet?
I love this time of the year because I can have as many wreaths that I want around our home without anyone calling me the ‘crazy wreath lady’.  So when a group of my fellow bloggers put a wreath hop together, I dusted off my old wreaths, jumped at the chance to participate and started decorating my own.
I love traditional wreaths and bought an oversize one last year for our ... http://nowathomemom.com/white-gold-and-blue-wreath-for-the-holidays/

Good evening everyone,
I hope you are doing great, it’s been a while since I posted and I’ve been a little bit less active in the blogging world lately but I’m back now.
Thank you so much to those of you who reached out to me during these last two weeks and noticed my absenteeism. I have been dealing with some health issues, which I am not ready to share at this moment but I am recuperating well.
When I started writing this post, I didn’t know how I should name it, I decided to go with ‘where I blog‘ because I am about to show you my new little nook I made for myself in our dining room.
Dining room!
What?
Again?
I’m sure this is what you are saying to yourself now that you are reading this.
Right?  Hubby had the same reaction.
Well, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I keep...

Good day everyone,
hope you are doing great, I know it’s been a while since my last post but glad to be here today. I’ve been baking a lot these last few days (note to self: pick up more butter this week). I’ve also been meaning to share with you a delicious and super easy “chocolate” dessert but I didn’t take any pictures of it and it didn’t last in our house very long. I might give it a try again soon and if I do I will make sure to share it with you.
I also missed last week’s one room challenge post. I didn’t want to miss it again this week so I took time to write this post after Nate went to bed late in the evening. You might also notice the poor quality of my ... http://nowathomemom.com/dining-room-makeover-small-projects-and-orc-week-3/

Hello everyone,
have you heard about the ORC?
the ORC is the One Room Challenge created by the lovely Linda from the Calling it Home blog. I fell in love with Linda's blog earlier this year when she transformed her entrance beautifully.
The challenge is to transform 1 room in 6 weeks from start to finish. We will be able to see how Linda along with 19 other bloggers transform a room and that's not all, she was kind enough to invite us all to participate by linking up our rooms every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks... http://nowathomemom.com/dining-room-makeover-ideas-and-orc-week-1/

Hello everyone,
hope you are all doing well, we enjoyed the beautiful weather by spray painting. Yeah, that’s what we do around here when the weather is nice.
Remember my homemade butcher block cleaner that I shared with you back in July? Well, Hometalk asked me to create a clipboard of vinegar solutions that we all would love to try. How exciting is that. I was surprised that there is so many vinegar solutions out there, but if you enjoy DIY’ing your own cleaning solutions, I invite you to check out my Hometalk clipboard by clicking the picture above.
For those of you who have not yet experienced Hometalk’s site, I am excited to ...

Hello everyone,
 Today’s post; a tutorial on how I transformed an old lamp into this pretty copper leaf lamp; it’s perfect for my Fall living room decor. I love how it blends well with the orange accents that I have.
We are seeing ‘gold’ transformations every where and I love them but I wanted to try something different. Just like gold, a copper accessory can warm up your space and with the arrival of cooler days, it’s the perfect opportunity to try this out: ...  http://nowathomemom.com/copper-leaf-lamp-makeover-just-in-time-for-fall/

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all having a great week, we have been busy around the house and hubby has been busy cleaning our yard. I’m a bit nervous because this afternoon I have a dentist appointment and I always get scared going to the dentist. Wish me luck.
I’ve been meaning to post about the garage sale finds since last weekend but I had not been able to. Glad I took some time today to write all about it. Last Saturday morning after breakfast my mom called me to ...

Good evening everyone!
Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!
We have been busy playing outside, taking Nate to the park and making sure he enjoys the lovely weather we are having around here.
Do you remember that last year back in August, I posted about the 2013 IKEA catalog and about the items that caught my eye? Well, now the 2014 IKEA catalog has finally arrived here in Canada. For us it’s only ...
