Remember when every store you went into had some sort of Owl decor? Well bye-bye owls…Foxes are in! Amanda Etty was ahead of the game calling this trend out back in the January 2013 issue, and it’s still going strong!

As a DIYer, part of the beauty of ‘doing it yourself’ is seeing something transform before your eyes. Often times that transformation requires days or weeks, and sometimes months. On the other hand, sometimes a transformation happens right before your eyes thanks to a can of spray paint.
Spray paint is the closest thing to magic I’ve found. There is a huge array of colours to choose from, matte or glossy finishes, and even metallic. My personal favourite is gold. A little gold spray paint goes a long way to dress things up.
If you’ve got a few minutes, here are five fun items to whip out the spray paint for. In a few quick coats and not much effort you’ll witness a magical transformation right in front of your eyes.
I’m going to make a bold claim here. It does not matter if your day has been bad, good, or great, because it’s about to get way better!

The renowned chef cooked up a stuffed porchetta in what felt like minutes, accompanied by a buttered turnip puree and apple mustard. The recipe can be found in his latest cookbook, Inside the Test Kitchen, which hits book stands next week.
I think it’s safe to say that Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend officially rings in baking season (for those of us who aren’t year-round bakers). I got a sneak peek at a brand new collection of bakeware from Quebec-based Trudeau, and lovely readers, I think you’ll be as pleased as I was.
The Structure collection features everything you love about silicone bakeware – non-stick and flexible properties ensure muffins and loaves easily pop right out of their pans – plus the added bonus of a reinforced steel rim for secure handling. Your baking lives just got a whole lot easier!
I’m blown away by the affordable price of this side table. Shaped like a coiled rope, this table has a 15″ diameter glass top, the perfect size for any small space. You can cozy it up to a sofa or use it as a nightstand in the bedroom.
