about a year ago i moved into a condo in the west end of toronto. since then i have done everything in my power and very limited budget to make my condo feel less condo-ee. i recently bought a book called Printing By Hand (it’s amazing you should buy it) and it is so beautiful and fun and helpful i have been busy trying my hand at every project in the book. what’s best about these sorts of projects is that they thrive on the imperfect. i feel like i spend so much time and energy obsessing over small things that really aren’t permanent. i think it’s important just to go for it. in life. but also in smaller less life-altering things like wallpaper (haha). all that being said i decided to make a faux-wallpaper accent wall in my bedroom using a sailboat potato stamp.
i’m really happy with how it turned out, smudgy and imperfect as it is–and it cost about 3 dollars to do it!

welcome to the first post on my first blog. i’m so excited about this and anxious to get it right. this blog is a safe haven for anyone who snoops around a new house without permission, who opts to walk home at night to better peer into people’s homes, who stares at the young handsome daddies at the market and thinks about stealing them. basically this blog is for rude people.
homes, design, gardening and food. this blog will be about those things.
i’m obsessed. hopefully that will suit you.
