To Be or not To Be....Minimalist

There seems to have been a lot of recent blog posts about being minimalist your deocr style, your wardrobe, even your house size. And, though I am not a trendy type of person, I kind of like this idea.

After all, I've always been a chucker.

Yep, ask my husband and kids. If it sat around too long, unused, it went into the donation bag or got sold in a garage sale. (Of course, that was back in the day....before we had Kijiji and Facebook buy and sell groups).

The Best Laid Plans....

Don't you love how life always gets in the way? I mean, throws you that little curve ball, just to keep you on your toes!

Unexpected things come up. All. The. Time.

Welcome to the farm! Obstacle number 107....

We Bought the Farm...

Dexter cattle,Ironwood Farm, rustic sign, chickens

I grew up in a suburban neighbourhood in Stoney Creek, and I pretty well figured that the stork had brought me to the wrong house. I mean, animal loving 'me' lived in the city, but my shopping loving cousins got to live on a dairy farm. NOT fair.

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign....

I am really enjoying creating these. Why? Because each is unique. I love to use anything old, vintage, rustice, or classic...and I can do all of this with signs! 

Some have been custom designed for a customer based on a specific room in which it is to be hung. Others have been done 'just for fun', and have quickly found homes.
