A Very Carrie Christmas

Since we’re only a few days away from Christmas, I thought I’d share my holiday décor with you! I’m really happy with the festive way our little carriage house turned out for the occasion!

Living Room – Dining Room Makeover with Urban Barn

I can’t believe it’s been two and a half years since we moved into our little carriage house! When we bought it, we thought it only needed a fresh coat of paint and once that was done, then we’d move in, but, alas – we had a major flood the day after we moved! I’ll ...

Royal Afternoon Tea

With the Royal Wedding only a few days away, I decided to host a Royal afternoon tea party for a few friends complete with traditional English scones, lemon curd and finger sandwiches. To make it even fancier, I baked elderflower sugar cookies decorated with edible flowers. They were a pretty addition to the tiered sandwich ...

Not long ago, I was invited to try the entire new brunch menu at Restaurant Miel in Pointe-Saint-Charles and there were a few dishes that I will definitely go back for.
