The New Pretty

joy

My days have been filled with lists ~ to do lists, menu ideas, grocery lists, and schedules .  Our days here at Camp Homewood are gearing up to “full tilt” and I’m working hard to stay ahead of things in the camp kitchen. I’ve been recently posting a Fashion over 40 post each Wednesday.  I’ve joined Alison’s Spring Fashion […]

Good morning, Pretties! I’ve been missing you! Sometimes life gets a little hectic around here, and I’ve been sad to not have time to sit down and write some posts.  Hopefully that can happen soon, but for now, I’m just going to send out this short little post before I head up to the camp […]

Guest Room Reveals So Dramatic You Won’t Believe Your Eyes!

Guest room transformations

How’s that for a post title??:) This week, I’m blogging over at our camp’s blog.  The subject matter is something I know you’ll love! My friend (and fellow Camp Homewood “staff wife”) Shauna designed 4 guest room renovations after donors “adopted” the rooms and funded the transformations.  Her husband Daryl and our other Maintenance staff […]

7 Modern Farmhouse Decor Lessons I Learned from my Sister-in-Law

Modern Farmhouse Style ~ mixing traditional and modern makes such a relaxing space! | harbourbreezehome.com

This beautiful old house has been standing tall and proud for over 100 years now. It’s been in the family for generations.  My Great-Grandma lived in it with my Grandparents, then my parents, and now my brother and sister-in-law.  On my recent trip back to Montana, I got to stay in it again and woke up […]

Fashion Over 40 – Spring Green

I’m so excited that my recent trip to Montana included a few sporadic shopping trips with my sister. It truly did start out as necessity.  The unpredictable Spring weather didn’t always work well with the carefully chosen items I’d packed in my carry-on.  First, I was far too hot with my layered looks and sweaters ~ so […]

Roads & Reflections

Montana country roads

As I sit here in my office with birds singing out the window, I feel as though I’m experiencing a teeny tiny taste of culture shock.  Yesterday at this time, I was toodling down a Montana road with my sister.  And now, thanks to modern day travel, I’m in my BC island home. For the […]

Spring House Tour

Beach Cottage Kitchen Remodel ~ For Under $200, you can make small changes with huge results! |harbourbreezehome.com

Today, I’m ready. If you’d show up on my doorstep right this minute, I’d throw open the door and say, “Come on in!  My house is all ready for you to see!” The floors have been swept,  clutter put away, dust bunnies sucked up, and even the kitchen rug is washed. In a perfect world, this is […]

Put Your Pretty On Spring Challenge

I’m sitting in a cute little coffee shop in Cranbrook, BC.  There is a wooden sign in front of my table that says, “RELAX”.  Hmm…I think I will, thank you!:)  I realize that I’m more than ready for a change of pace; time away from the normal pressures of life…  So, in a few hours, I’ll […]

Potato Soup & Dumplings

Potato Soup & Dumplings ~ simple comfort food! | harbourbreezehome.com

Sometimes it’s fun to find brand new recipes and try out foods that we’ve never eaten before. And sometimes, we long for some old-fashioned comfort food. Today’s recipe definitely fits into the comfort food category. Along with creamed peas on toast, I grew up with Potato Soup.  I loved it with lots of crushed up […]
