Junk In My Trunk

Wednesday, July 4, 2012 0 Permalink 0

I have been horrible at blogging about my acquisitions of old and late. I've been collecting loads of things lately - for my wee project. Old school Coleman. Great for organizing my junk. Figured out the theme yet? I was given the re-usable produce bags by my brother and his wife. I love them. Bamboo cutlery = super light. And lastly, my plastic measuring spoons. And this was another gift from my sister-in-law. Her Opa made it (wowowowow): Beautiful isn't it? Small and portable. I really love it. This is stamped into the side of the cutting board. I think (if I remember correctly, which I don't usually) it is her Opa's nickname? Arg. Will have to double check my facts on that one. I love all this stuff.

This summer I am hoping to make the full on switch from junky products to mostly natural, better for me products. Here is the break down of my gear: Some things you may have seen before, like the homemade body butter. You can find the deets for that here. I finally found Tom's anti perspirant, it took me ages to find it. I like the smell of the deodorant, but as we all know, that doesn't do much to help. I have never used the wipes before, but they are natural and smell like grapefruits - I can't wait to use those babies on the go. All the others are self explanatory. I would love to change all my make-up over to all natural products too but I haven't found products that I love yet. Any suggestions for me? Another cool wee thing... I thrifted this old picnic basket to help me stay organized. All compact ...

DIY Cedar Window Box With Some Help

Monday, June 25, 2012 5 Permalink 0

So once upon a time (well last week) I got contacted by a super lovely woman named Jordana about a workshop that Home Depot was going to run. I went. Then this happened. Believe it or not - I made that sweet cedar window box! With some professional help of course. The folks at Home Depot weren't going to leave us up to our devices, that is just stupid. But with supervision we sawed, nail gunned (it's a verb now as far as I am concerned), glued and stood around looking proud of our ourselves. No one likes to read the text, so here are the pictures! This next image was taken by Jordana at Environics Communication. All lined up and ready to rock and roll here. Blog babes. Heather from Interior Groupie getting down to business. She wrote about her love for nail guns here. Lexi in the pink was my building buddy. She writes Lex ...
