For Your Viewing Pleasure: Great Canadian Winter Ice Storm Edition

Canadian Winter Ice Storm

So many snowfalls.

I’m getting sick of shoveling snow, but I look forward to cups of tea, hot showers and our gas fireplace to keep me warm.

Whatever Mother Nature throws at us, it’s nice knowing you can hide indoors and catch up on some reading.

Find out who’s a frugal billionaire aside from Warren Buffett in today’s post @ Suburban Finance.

 

 

Is Art Worth The Money?

I’m not a professional artist or art afficionado.

After living in my house for almost eight months, I finally got around to putting up one (yes, only one) piece of artwork on the wall.  Of all places, it is located in the powder room on the main floor. While this may not be the best place to showcase artwork, given its unique size (long and narrow), it seems to be in the right place.  It just also happens to match the colours of the powder room.
