Welcome to my new blog – the sweetest digs!! My name is Gemma and my hubby’s name is Dan. We just purchased our first home in a trendy Ottawa, Canada neighbourhood. We have both been apartment dwellers for quite a few years, but have always hankered after a place of our own where we could unleash our secret love of doing projects around the house. In late 2009, after visiting over 20 houses and browsing countless real estate listings, we finally found our perfect fit: a 3-bed, 2-bath red brick bungalow with tons of potential. Join us DIYers as we gather inspiration, renovate and decorate our home, all on a super slim budget!
