Quick Trip to Canada: Grasscloth and Other Stuff

This weekend Elly and I drove up to Canada to visit her mom and go to a Sens NHL hockey game. It was super fun, but only after we hit a few snags on the way up... as described so colorfully by Elly on her blog.

Lara (Elly's momma) and her husband Barry live in a beautiful home on a golf course in a suburb outside of Ottawa. Much of our discussions over the weekend revolved around politics, babies and home decor. L & B are currently remodeling their open kitchen and living room space, and recently updated the walls with a soft tan grasscloth.

I didn't realize how common grasscloth is used to cover walls, but it's awesome! It's possible to DIY, but I'm sure it can be very difficult as well... Take this story over at Centsational Girl's blog. Sounds tricky, but worth the hard work.

While I totally enjoyed my trip to maple country, I'm happy to be back in America :)  Happy Monday!
