Super Bowls (canine style).
Jane @ urbanejane.10:23 AM 12 comments

Before you start thinking I bathe my dog in pink bubble bath while feeding her crustaceans on a silver spoon, let me explain...


I did hear that an elevated doggy dish was better for a dog's digestion, and seeing as my canine has been eating in the corner out of dollar store dishes, I figured I would help her digestion, while adding a bit of sass to my kitchen corner.

Long time no post!

Hope these help to fill you in :)

Our latest unhealthy addiction (cinnamon buns in case you couldn't tell from the gruesome amount of icing).

Alternative uses for nail polish
Jane @ urbanejane.9:55 AM 3 comments

Hello!
This is not a typical type of post, mainly because I'm not really a nail polish wearer (it always ends up cracked or dinged by Day 2, or splotched with paint, which kind of defeats the purpose of getting prettied).


For the first time in what seems like forever, I decided to gussy up my fingers with a bright orange-red (and some glitter to welcome Spring with pizazz)... I thought I might take a picture and document it before it gets ruined somehow.

lacquer box fail & rescue.

Happy (early) St. Patrick's Day! 
(Although it's not the day yet, and I don't really celebrate it... and this post has nothing to do with the occasion... just thought I'd jump the gun and say it)


About a year ago, I came across a very simple laminate box in Goodwill.

campaign-lookalike tall boy dresser
Jane @ urbanejane.12:05 PM 15 comments



My parents had this tall boy sitting around in their place of work without an owner to claim it, so knowing their daughter has a bit of the Furniture Hoarding Syndrome, asked me if I wanted it... I didn't even know what it looked like, but a resounding yes was what they got! (Free?? Fo' sure!)

not your typical bunny.

A long, long time ago while walking through a thrift store, there appeared before me (in between rusted cookware and wooden Santa faces with patchy cotton beards) a little face. To my surprise, it was a little clay bunny.

feeling blue lately.

I have been finding myself staring at our spare rooms and just thinking of how I could incorporate this lovely colour (and possibly with some gold) into my home.

diy sunburst mirror from shims.
Jane @ urbanejane.10:07 AM 9 comments


Ever since I finished my campaign-type credenza, I have been looking for a mirror to hang above it. I was looking for a Greek Key mirror or one with a sunburst frame.

Rather than paying a pretty penny, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make one myself.

Africa & faux-brass elephants.
Jane @ urbanejane.10:30 PM 5 comments


When my husband and I got married, we went to South Africa for our honeymoon. It might sound exotic and romantic, but it was with 13 of our friends to volunteer at an orphanage.
