DIY by Candlelight & a Guest Post



Well, this post was supposed to be written last night, but we had no power in our neighborhood! The power shut off just after we had drilled the first hole for a curtain rod we were putting up… so thank goodness for cordless power tools, flashlights and candles! It’s our most romantic DIY yet! 😉 I’m excited to show you the new addition to our eating area very soon! More excited than Jason was to have his picture taken that’s for sure, haha!

In the meantime, I’d love it if you would come and join me over at Cottage & Vine today, where I’m sharing my Favorite Room! If you haven’t met Rene before, make sure you say hi! And for those of you visiting from Cottage & Vine, hello there! I’m glad to meet you!

    I saw your post over at Cottage & Vine so I wanted to pop over here to say “hi” and to tell you you’ve done a lovely job with your home – it’s gorgeous!! Are you in Vancouver? I’m in Victoria… nice to find you here!

  • Janet @HouseFour

    The look on his face says it all!
    What a drag – terrible time for the power to go out.
    Can’t wait to see what you did 🙂

  • Lisa

    I too am visiting from C&V and just wanted to tell you how much I love your space and your style! So fresh and airy – it’s just lovely! Enjoy it.

  • Victoria @ Edin's House

    I’ve got my Brian pretty trained… he’ll even take photos for me when I can’t be home for a fun or transformative element to one of our reno/building projects! Of course he’ll still get a similiar look to your Jason’s when I take an ‘action’ shot of him working!! 😉
    Looking forward to seeing your eating area reveal!

    LOVE when the power goes out (when I have nowhere else to be and our bellies are full) Off to check out your guest post 🙂

    Great posting Rosa! What a treat to be asked to be a guest blogger.

  • barbara@hodge:podge

    Love your space{s} Rosa, especially the kitchen. I am green with envy as I sit and stare at my ugly oak rental wonder 🙁

  • Elizabeth @ Blue Clear Sky

    I also found my way over from Cottage and Vine. Your rooms are lovely! The little chairs your Grandfather made are adorable and look wonderful there. I’m adding your blog to my Canadian blog list in my sidebar.

    Hi Rosa,
    Just reading both your posts (here and at Cottage and Vine). I want to slip cover my couch now that there is a baby around (although Jim and I are probably the messiest of all) and was wondering where you got yours made?
