BLACK FRIDAY SALES YOU CAN SHOP IF YOU WANT TO!

Anyone feel overwhelmed by the number of sales this year? Me too! I keep a list of favourite shops to check in on for this sale and thought I would share the list with you. It’s a curated list of places I look to all year round, but this weekend is a nice chance to tick off items you know you can buy ahead (i.e. christmas gifts, bigger sizes for the kids) or a big ticket item you’ve had your eye on (playhouse anyone?).

FRIDAY FINDS: FAMILY CAMPING GEAR!

Like crazy people (ha!), we are taking our kids camping in a tent for the first time this weekend. Don't get me wrong, my love of nature and the outdoors definitely extends to camping, we have just switched to cabins or house rentals when taking family 'outdoorsy' vacations over the past, um...8 years!!!

Well, no longer! The kids are SO excited and I'll let you know how it goes, but just for fun (it is Friday after all), I thought I would share a few of my favourite finds for camping that we'll be taking on our trip.

FRIDAY INSPIRATION: HOUSE FRAME BEDS!

It's Friday and for my next project, my client has asked for a house bed for her son's room!!! With that request, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my inspiration for this fun bed idea.

I love the simple lines of the house bed and how such a simple concept adds so much impact. This bed draped with a sheer curtain provides a cozy canopy for any little one.

Having a bed directly on the floor is the most common style but a house frame bed can also have legs so that there is air flow beneath the mattress too. I love this bed below for that!

There are so many variations and the little chimney is a cute addition, as seen here.
