Ok crazy houseplant people!
If you don’t already know Etsy, it’s the only place I will shop online. It is full of artisans, vintage collectors, and entrepreneurs trying to support themselves. It also just so happens to be FILLED with amazing planters and houseplant pots. I collected some of my FAVORITE planters and put together this amazing list to share with you all. (The animal planters are my favorites… shhh….)

Summer is coming to an end and it’s back to school, back to work, and back to “reality”. At least that’s what some people say. Personally, I designed my life that so all 365 days feel like reality. The weather changes and the temperature too, but my view of life remains the same. My goals are still there, my dreams still dancing in my head, my attitude consistent (for the most part).
But for some of us who have taken a reasonable rest from their jobs or schools, are beginning again now in Autumn.
Are you prepared? Are you thinking of ways to bring some change into your day-to-day during the new season?
How about starting with some reusable, recycled, re-found essentials?Read more →
It’s finally summertime! After a lengthy Spring here in Canada the rain is finally taking a break and the sun is burning hot. So when you’re not at the beach, in the garden or on the patio, it might be a good idea to spend a moment indoors and cool off. I’ve gathered together some awesome DIY kits from the wonderful Etsy for some ideas on what to do in your spare time. Just click on the title or the photo to be taken to the Etsy page. Read more →
Fathers Day, with a seemingly positive intention, has been a controversy for many many years. The history of both Mothers Day and Fathers Day is interesting. And, regardless if you are pro-Parents Day, or against it, for me, an excuse to give thanks to my father and father figures is just fine.
I have included a section from history.com about some of the history related to Fathers Day. After the short read, you will find some suggestions of Etsy Fathers Day gift ideas.
The items I selected below are all handmade in Canada and are made with eco-friendly production, eco-friendly materials, recycled materials, or all of the above.Read more →
Recently Etsy has put out a new selection of Editors Picks under the title : Reduce Your Waste.
They feature everything from upcycled gifts, to reclaimed wood furniture, to earth friendly cleaning products and more. I think it’s a great idea! Although when thinking about reducing your waste, buying more items doesn’t exactly come to mind. But the idea is that these are products you will only have to buy once (or very minimal amounts) in an effort of reducing your waste that is being thrown out everyday.
For example; how often do you throw cling-wrap in the garbage? Most people, very often. Well what if there was a simpler way that could be simply washed and reused? There is! Read more →
This week I enjoyed myself at the 2017 Montreal Etsy Fair! There were tons of artists (100+), and a TON of people! It was one of those events that you can’t really stop walking… You just get engulfed by the current and find yourself back at the beginning all of a sudden…. How did that happen? Nevertheless, it was amazing to see so many people come out to support the incredible local talent that Montreal has to offer! Read more →
Mama’s Day! And although I’m not completely on-board with the Hallmark-hijacked-holiday as far as its main incentive being consumerism. The original creation of the holiday was with good intent, and any excuse to appreciate our amazing mothers is okay with me. Read more →
