And I thought it was just my Mom reading this

When we started our blog it was really to document our nerdyness (and still is) for our family. As I've mentioned before, it was with great delight when Google Analytics showed me that we actually infact had more than just my Mom and Dad and siblings reading the blog, and shortly thereafter, I started seeing some awesome people comment on our projects.

This blog is a really nice hobby for me. You see, my previous hobby - art - became my career path, and a girl sometimes just needs an outlet for other creativity - which is our house, photography, and our blog, and having a creative writting outlet.

So it is absolutley flattering that our documenting of our nerdyness got us a mention along in House and Homes "Design Sites We Like" under Canadian Blogs.

The heading calls the list...."The ultimate list of online decorating destinations, sites and blogs — in alphabetical order — as chosen by House & Home editors." I was absolutely honored to have our trials and tribulations in decorating + renovations listed as a Top Blog.

Some of the other Canadian blogs that are mentioned are on my blog roll (to the right) and it was an absolute honour to be mentioned along with them.

I sometimes just think that it's me writting, reading, and showing my parents the blog, so it's with great delight when I see commenters on our blog, and with great surprise when we get mentioned like this by a world renowned, and much adored magazine.

Thank you! - Lindsay (And Aubrey, in the background)

I love reading your blog, and still don't know how I stumbled upon it! I'm from San Francisco area of CA. My favorite things are those Monopoly property cards your enlarged and framed. I'm waiting for the right place to add those to our house. I love it! :)

Congrats! I love reading your blog after finding through Rambling Renovators. I have since orders a personalized alphabet print from your etsy shop for my nieces! I also did a bit of a write up on my blog about your prints! I just jumped on the blog bandwagon and am also Canadian!
