3 Things Thursday:

Hey it’s Thursday, and I’m not feeling chatty today…is that possible? I guess I’ll just dive into my weekly list of 3 Things minus the rambling….

1. One: Wallpaper

I’m am dying to decorate my home. Everyday I try to think of ways that I can spruce up my space without making major changes (we are planning to move near the end of the year), but my mind keeps wandering to brightly painted walls and Indian inspired wallpaper. Just a few more months.

My current home decor obsession is this Talavera Wallpaper from Hygge & West. It is inspired by some floor tile found in an old church in Mexico, but it also gives me a little bit of a desi vibe. I have this bookmarked for my future master bedroom. 

2. Popcorn

We never eat microwave popcorn at my house because it’s gross and horribly unhealthy, and we don’t own a microwave so it would be really hard to make. We do however love popping our own kernels on the stove top, and do it at least once a week. 

A couple weeks ago on a whim I added paprika and butter to my popcorn during movie night, it was delicious! Then I made the mistake of hitting up google for ‘ideas for flavoured popcorn’; wow. This is officially going to be the summer of popcorn. Don’t believe me, check out my Pinterest board.

3. Farmer’s Markets

We’ve been trying to find a local farmer’s market with a good selection of produce for a couple of weeks now. Unfortunately, we haven’t had too much success, but it’s become a fun family project, and we are always curious about what we’ll find at the market this week. 

Last week was all about berries. My plan today is turn the leftovers into simple syrup for ice cream and freeze some blueberries for pancakes in the fall. 

If you are in BC and happen to visit a farmer’s market before July 7th, don’t forget to participate in the ‘It Feels Better at the Famer’s Market Selfie Contest’. You already saw my kids doing it! Details on how to participate can be found here

    Go for the wallpaper! Its gorgeous and adds so much character. And really easy to do. Me and Nigar recently finished wallpapering a couple of accent walls in my room and it looks so pretty. My hubby loves plain popcorn that we pop on the stove *weird* and I wish we had farmers market near where we live. There’s none…. :(

      I’m so in love with this wallpaper, I’m actually considering ordering a few rolls and keeping them for whenever I’m ready to use them!

    Wall paper is lovely. And I’m totally with you when it comes to microwave popcorn, we’re a stove top popcorn family as well :)

    Great list! I wish I could use more wallpaper back home but it’s so hot that it peels way too easily. I love the pattern too! I’m staying away from flavoured popcorn because that’s a seriously dangerous road LOL
