~A Holiday Weekend and a Blogversary~

This weekend us Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving. Our family is excitedly awaiting the arrival of cousins! We are also looking forward to a restful weekend. What I hope to finish is a long overdue project that I started yesterday.


- you guessed it - the never-thought-I'd-ever-start HEADBOARD! 

I bravely plugged in the jigsaw yesterday and went for it. Today I went and bought a few upholstery supplies and hopefully tomorrow it will be done! 

Here is a sneak peek:

Last week our oldest daughter celebrated her sweet 16 - I had fun decorating and organizing a party for her and her friends. We also treated her to a trip to Tiffany's to pick out a quintessential Tiffany's charm bracelet! 

I also just realized that I have been blogging for ONE YEAR! Time flies when you are having fun! I dove into blogging courageously, felt like a new kid in school, but have enjoyed the ride. What I love the most is having met the most amazing and creative blogging friends along the way. It is so wonderful to know there are other OCDers (obsessively consumed with decorating)out there!


Join me next week as I host another giveaway to celebrate! 

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends 
Happy Columbus Day to my American friends (enjoy the sales!)
