I am getting married next summer as some of you may know, and when Matt and I started to talk about what kind of a wedding we wanted the one thing we wanted to be a huge priority is for the process to be as stress free as possible. I absolutely didn’t want a high […]
Hey everyone! It has been a super rough summer for my poor blog! So much has gone wrong and it has left me feeling frustrated, discouraged and a little sad. I love blogging and over the past year I had really developed a special place in my heart for the EYDIAB blog. The problem is […]
Last Friday was a super fun day of thrifting with my friend Jelena of Poppyseed Living. We drove a little ways out of the city to hit up all the out of the way thrift stores and boy did we acquire some treasures! I had a few things on my list that I really wanted […]
I spent a lot of time working this week, and it paid off as I am very happy with my lovely emerald side table! This is my almost non-existent entry way which I plan to post about soon. So many headaches around this area of the apartment but I think we have a pretty solid […]
I have four projects in the queue and I am really looking forward to sharing them with you guys! The first is this tiny little side table that was kind of a mess when I picked it up on the side of the road. Other than dirt, there was nothing at all wrong with it. […]
I am feeling kinda yucky today and I am not quite ready to do any revealing of any recent projects, so I decided to forgo a post today. Even though this isn’t much of a blog post, Ryan Gosling thinks it’s fine! Have a lovely weekend folks!
I saw a friend of mine this weekend and we got to talking about Etsy. I fantasized about how awesome it must be to work for Etsy and she told me that new employees are given $100 to spend on Etsy to purchase items to decorate their work spaces! How awesome is that?? Anyway, I think […]
I popped into Crate and Barrel yesterday to see what they had in stock. I haven’t been in some time, and I found some very cool items! Take a look! This chandelier caught my eye right away. This style is pretty popular right now and C&B is certainly doing it right! I especially love the […]
In the bustle of life, I have been forced to look at this mess for way too long. I like these shelves for displaying decorative items but I have really neglected to do anything cool with them since we moved in. Way too many cookbooks and magazines (honestly I use Foodgawker and Pinterest much more […]

Everything You Do is A Balloon is what grew from my love of design and the desire to make my home into an inviting space that is filled with art, beauty, and warmth. I love a home that openly displays the imaginations of the people that dwell within it, and that is more than just walls, but a haven. I have always had a love of all things old, and finding that one treasure buried amongst junk store refuse is something I can’t imagine ever not doing which is why I also include my finds in my Etsy shop. I work with my own two hands to make something old, forgotten, and abandoned into a beautiful, functional, spirited piece of furniture. I live in Toronto with my partner Matt and our dog Petit Prince in our own little haven. I hope you enjoy everything I do.
