• Signs of Fall

    It's hard to believe that it's mid-October already! We've got pumpkins, fresh from the field, piled up on our front porch and have some creative ideas in store for at least a few of the bunch...stay tuned! New stock continues to arrive (both new and "new" to us) and we're already gearing up for the busy holiday season. But first things first, this Saturday is Small Business Saturday across Canada so be sure to show your support for the little guys (that's us!) and shop local this weekend. We also have a great class, DIY Painted mugs with Leanna from 1-3pm and there are still a few spots left. You'll leave with a set of 4 mugs, perfect for gift giving or for your next coffee break. Our shelves are looking extra colourful with the addition of these gorgeous striped ceramic vases by Vancouver-based Dahlhaus Studio. I don't know if I could narrow it down to only one colour choice though...time to start a Christmas list! Which colour(s) would you choose? Our favourite pastime (if you hadn't noticed) is moving things around and rearranging the shop. This week started with a cozy new home for Tanya Bancroft's stunning painting at the front of the shop and who knows where everything will be by the end of the week...you'll have to come in and see! Colour, colour, everywhere! More juicy hues from Dahlhaus (with a peek at some of Marian + Hazel's artwork below) and some bright new porcelain pens sent to us from the kind folks at Pebeo. We cannot wait to see more of our creative classes in action! For those of you who have been patiently waiting, we'll be announcing our first furniture painting and distressing classes by the end of the week too...we promise :) Don't forget to support the local entrepreneurs and small businesses in your neighbourhood this weekend. Let's work together to keep our communities strong!
    See you soon,
