Fresh Hair, fresh new owner. A Waskesiu salon.

This beautiful lady is my niece that I am so proud of.  She has fought so hard to get where she is, and she is so amazingly strong and talented.  At 21 years young she took over a salon in Waskesiu this year and totally renovated it to her own style.  It is stunning and I am so proud to see her doing what she loves.  Read on to find out more about her journey and her salon and what they offer. 

I love a good DIY.  Include a can of spray paint?  I'm in.  Spray paint has to be one of my favourite tools to update my surroundings.  It's easy, inexpensive and can completely transform a piece.  I chose gold spray to update a few household items.  

My husband and I recently purchased a new house (yay!) and with the possession date fast approaching, I have all things 'home' on my mind.  And at the top of my list- decorating.  I have been searching furniture retailers in store and online for inspiration to create my dream home.  Today I'm sharing some of my favourite pieces for the living room, as well as some gorgeous spaces I am lusting over.  

I have a passion for all things vintage, antique, reclaimed, recovered and re-loved‚Ķanything with a good story and unique visual. If you also have a taste for unique, vintage or custom design, you're going to love it at Hiddenstitch in Saskatoon (I do!). Owner, designer and creatively inspiring woman, Ricki Skoretz describes her work as "discovering the stories of salvageable furniture by reinventing the design and styling of each unique piece". Read on to join me (Susan) on a recent visit where she helped to reinvent something I almost threw in the garbage.

Each season brings change within and all around us.  I can't help but want to adjust my surroundings and style according to the seasons.  With autumn upon us and winter in the near future, I wish for comfort, warmth and a peaceful setting.  I'm sharing a few of my personal favorites for the home, wardrobe and child today.
