Give Thanks...

October 06, 2017

The table is set and all that is left to do is...EVERYTHING! 
Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in mid-October and this year we have a lot to be thankful for...


 1. A New Home:

With a recent move for our family, our new house is finally starting to feel like a home. We downsized and donated or sold a lot of stuff.  It has been fun and challenging to find the perfect pieces that make our home perfect for us.  You would think that owning a store specializing home decor would make that part easier!

2. Good Food and Family to Share it With:

Our family is small and lives near and far.  We usually do a low key turkey day with all the fixin's.  A turkey of course, my Grandma's famous stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, a root veggie and of course pie! There is always pie!

3. Colours of The Season:

Fall is my favourite season. I love the bold coloured leaves, pumpkins and gourds and cozying up our home with more texture.  A first for me, having walls that are white or very pale shades of grey that read as white. It is nice to be able to add colours of the season to become the focal of our home.

 I've added some muted colour with hand painted dollar store pumpkins that we did during our Cottage Paint Pumpkin Painting Workshop we help last week.

 4. A Growing Business and the Best Customers:

I have always said that Marni LuHu has the best customers, and I mean it.  Since we opened our doors in our current location over four years ago, our community and area have been so supportive and allowed our dream to become what it is today.  for that, I THANK YOU!

This weekend, we are growing just a little bit more by re-launching our website which has been such a long time coming. We encourage you to take a peak and and for doing so, use promo code GIVETHANKS10 for 10% off your order during the Thanksgiving Weekend.

I had an "Aha Moment" yesterday.  We've heard Oprah talk about those for years on her talk show...did you know I share a birthday with that amazing woman?  sure do!

From Trash to Treasure

June 14, 2018 1 Comment

...But you've all heard the saying, "one (wo)man's trash is another (wo)man's treasure". This has become my creative mantra since discovering Cottage Paint/Milk Paint. You would not believe the amount of furniture and decor items I've found at thrift stores, garage sales, my own basement, or even dumpsters (more on that to come) that I've entirely transformed into something lifestyle-magazine worthy using only a paintbrush and some good ol' Cottage Paint.

My Heart Will Go On Part II

It was soooo cold, like teeth chattering cold,  as I lay on my bed in the operating room waiting for my team to show up. Bursting through the door they came! Being the smart ass that I am greeted the docs with, "Did everyone wear their capes today?"
