grand entrance for a tiny house:)

Tanya List

Our little house here in Bracebridge is 1350 square feet on the main level, and the finished basement (that ry and i sleep in) is another 850 square feet……..When you see the size of our entrance way it really doesn’t match the rest of the house, its HUGE!  The tiles and light fixtures were already at the house when we arrived…not my favourite, but for now i’m making them work:)

Our front entrance even has french doors to the backyard!

some ribbon macrame

Tanya List

My newest obsession is with macrame. I’ve been cutting and copying images for months now. Never have i ever attempted it before, but i thought what the hell:)  I needed a little something for Reids bedroom that would add a touch more colour that wasn’t a painted piece of art.  So i googled macrame and found the easiest knot you could find.  I really hate following any pattern for what ever project i may be into…… i just started randomly tying ribbons together.  Then, through on a few beads (that i’ve had in a box for years) and presto, macrame art for a little ladies bedroom:)

p.s this is a bit of a time consuming project for those of you who wish to try it at home…lol

A little girls bathroom

Tanya List

Reid’s bathroom is slowly coming together:)  Here are some pics of some of the items collected and created in the last few weeks.  As always obsessed with homemade art and photographs people i know.  (New lighting, paint to come) If i could have it my way, i would decorate for little girls and little girls only……:)

I made this piece of art a few years back, looks amazing in Reids new bathroom:

Home made art

Tanya List

I always loved art.  Always wanted art. …..but could really never afford to buy the pieces that i loved.  So, about 6 years ago i marched down to the art shop and purchased the largest canvas they had:)  I stared at it for almost a year before i had the guts to paint it.  Now it’s become an obsession.  I love the instant gratification that you get from seeing the colour become something a little more:)  Below are just a few painting and other random “home-made art” that i hung on the walls today (trust me, i have waaayyy more paintings….ry laughs that we don’t really need to paint the walls anymore…)

This was made from left over grass cloth for the background and tiles from our old bathroom in Etobicoke….i loved those tiles…so granny.  Please excuse the nasty counter tops in the left hand corner…one day they will be changed:
