Have you ever been part of the “Sandwich Generation”? If you are not sure what this term means, it references being an adult child of aging parents and having your own family. The struggle is trying to make enough time to meet everyone’s needs. Usually, your needs are the only one’s not met and you are exhausted however you lovingly help your parents. Shaz’z Organizing Solutions rescued me in 2006 by helping to downsize the family home in preparation for my Mom to go into assisted living.

Vintage & Restoration Love is a shop reminds me of something I would see in St. Jacobs, Ontario. It was a pleasant surprise to find it in a city close to Fort St. John. It is an eclectic mix of vintage and new home décor items, upcycled furniture and restored furniture.
