About Me

Hi There!
Dana Badge
This is a Messy place both figuratively and more often than I like, literally, and sometimes laundry-tively.

A world of three daughters, one Agronomist (who I secretly believe is a CIA agent) and no dog.

So... when I'm not eating cookies and chocolate, or attempting to close my plastic container drawer, I look forward sharing with you, as well as photographing, the daily "goings on" of this family.

This includes the decorating of the Bungalow, parenting tween and teen daughters and photography.  Due to Analysis Paralysis though my progress tends to be slow. As a result, on occasion, I may ask for your opinions and help.

Did I mention I love visitors and am thrilled you stopped by.  Especially since here, you don't have to see my dirty dishes and dust bunnies!

Enjoy my world: One Story, Photograph, Room,  Paint chip, Closet, Outfit, Insecurity, and Question at a time.

I'm A Small City Canadian Mom Living In A Big Messy World.
And I'm so happy you stopped by!

I'd love to hear from you.

"We must avoid fastidiousness; 
neatness when it is moderate, is a virtue; 
but when it is carried to an extreme, 
it narrows the mind."
~Francois de Salignac Fenelon
(I love the french)

"Everyone makes mistakes. 
The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking."

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing 
is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

There are no rules for good photographs, 
there are only good photographs. 
~Ansel Adams 

Worrying is like a rocking chair... it give you something to do, 
but doesn't get you anywhere.

One man has enthusiasm 10 minutes, another 10 days, 
but it is the man who has it 10 years 
who makes a success of his life.
~Edward B. Butler


You always have time for the things you put first.
