Aren’t these simply amazing? Leave it to Etsy to have the coolest, most unique stuff on the web.

Over here at White Cabana we do love our white animals. For about $50 CAD one of these lovelies by mostlikelyShop can be yours to fold and glow. Perfect for any room and making a very architectural and functional presence.

The Friday Five: Dining Rooms

Just because Family Day is over (an Ontario holiday), it doesn’t mean that family feasts need to end. Any day is a great day to gather around a gorgeous dining table and share a meal with family and friends. While my cooking skills still need to be refined (I’m working on it – trying out some of my mom’s recipes and putting the Gourmet cookbook to work), I do think that food really does have a way of bringing people together. It’s just a major bonus if your dining room is as inviting as the food you’re serving!
