My House: all dressed up, sources

Sheesh, my dressing table is going to get a complex, thanks so much for your comments! I appreciate each and everyone one. Anyone who has a blog knows comments are like chocolate, or icecream, or icecream covered in chocolate... anyway, they just make my day!

A few people were asking about where I got a few items, so here is a source guide for your reference:
Dressing Table: HomeSense
Chair: IKEA
Mirror: Urban Barn
Lamp: IKEA

Small mirror: HomeSense
White Apple Candle: HomeSense (on clearance for $3.00!!)
Mirrored Tray: Old Strathcona Antique Mall
Lipstick Holder: Old Strathcona Antique Mall
Roses: my front yard!


p.s. Do you think somebody goes to HomeSense too much? It's on my way home from work, sometimes it's just so hard to just keep driving!! ;)



  1. That is dangerous!! Luckily I have a bit of a drive to get to my closest HomeSense. I love that apple candle by the way - I missed it the first time you showed the picture.

  2. Oh i just love it! It's so simple and chic! Love that the flowers are from your garden too!
    Just gorgeous

  7. I was just in Calgary and basically wanted to move INTO Home Sense. I LOVE your dressing table!! It is beyond beautiful. And Urban Barn brings a tear to my eye too!!

    Awesome job!

  8. Comments are like snail mail cards: exciting and unexpected! ;)

  12. Holy moly!

    To quote everyone else: that Dressing Table is AMAZING! And I loooove how you've decorated it.

  14. I've never seen HomeSense, but def will cause I gotta have that table! Thanks for the info dear:-)

  15. Thanks guys. HomeSense would be like the Canadian equivalent to Home Goods.

    And yes, Molly, you are missing out ;) haha, don't worry you make up for it in food! YOU have a schnitzel truck.

  16. i love your dressing table! I've seen that table so many times at HomeSense and love it! There is definitely not enough time in the week to visit homesense enough. That store is amazing!!

    p.s. thanks for reading my blog! :)

  17. I love this! I wish I had this!

  18. Oh, your dressing table is beautiful!! And no, you definitely don't shop at HomeSense too much :-) I have one on my way home from work too, but I've managed to wean myself off just a bit -- down to a visit every one or two weeks instead of two or three PER week!!

    Enjoy your lovely dressing table :-)


  19. OMG! I just found your blog (and I'm from Edmonton too!). I absolutely LOVE your dressing table!! I am constantly on the prowl for my own (and also frequent Homesense!!)
