A grandfather clock makeover with Country Chic Paint in Peacoat

**This post has been sponsored by Country Chic Paint. All opinions are my own.** Happy Monday! Was today a bit easier to deal with given the time change that happened over the weekend? Luckily I live in Saskatchewan, where we stay on central time 365 days a year!

Huge thanks to Envirotex for providing the resin to really help make this project a showstopper. You can read my full disclosure here. I've had this old phonograph cabinet sitting in the garage collecting dust for ages now.[...]

3 Ways to Store Fresh Basil

3 ways to store fresh basil

Basil. It's my favourite. I love the smell, the flavour it gives & how incredibly easy it is to grow and store. Each year I grow anywhere from 6-9 plants in my garden. They usually take up their own section, but this year, I've also planted some amongst my tomato plants. The key to growing basil is to make sure it's planted in a bright sunny space & to keep your soil moist (<-- you guys, that word, I hate it! But it's really the only way to describe it!). Also, don't be afraid to harvest your basil plants often! If you keep trimming them down, they[...]
