empty frames.

I'm always on the look out for unique wall decor ideas, and this is my latest favourite. Pretty cheap too. Just find some old, interesting looking frames in different shapes and sizes and paint them all the same colour (or complimentary colours) and hang them however looks best. In other words, just do whatever you want with them - foolproof right? I especially like the white frames on white walls, just adds texture. And the frames with the ribbon through them, with pictures clipped to the ribbons. Above beds and dressers, and up staircases. The possibilities are endless.

Erin ever after

nothing like fresh peaches...

For my step-sister Leah's birthday, I got her an awesome cookbook because she's a chef extraordinaire. Check out this tasty peach dessert called the "Tower of Peaches" she made. It's wontons baked with honey and layered with peaches, then topped with fresh lavender straight out of the garden. Yumm.


I'm a big fan of colour, as you can see in most (if not all) of my posts. I just think life would be bland without it. But there's something about rooms that lack colour - only white - that seems so relaxing and peaceful. Having said that, I think what really makes it work, is that it's only white on purpose, not because no one got around to putting any colour into it. It's on purpose that all the chaos is removed and it's designed to be serene. That's what I love about it.

wedding shoes?

Hello friends! It's been awhile since I've updated, I know. I just spent the week in Portland OR/Seattle WA visiting friends and attending the Champion Centre's Team Church Conference. My head is buzzing with new thoughts and ideas that will take me days to mull over and a lifetime to live out. I feel so blessed to have been in that atmosphere being challenged by amazing leaders from across North America.

But back to the topic. I think I've found my wedding shoes! There are several reasons for choosing TOMS, not the least of which the fact that I wore them for my engagement photos and I like things to be cohesive like that. If you haven't seen them, you MUST go here and here.
