  • A simple refresh in the bedroom.

    With the changing of the seasons, and sometimes besides the cleaning of the linens and washing of the windows we just need a little reset.  Maybe a new set of clean sheets.

Blogging Since 2015

This blog is written by Meg and includes tales of the renovations/ decor changes of her home and the shop she owns in Fonthill, Ontario. It goes back many years, much before the shop was born. It is like one of those stacking dolls. It started with a couple of kids buying their forever home. It snowballed into renovations, which turned into garage shows and then a store. If you are new here, welcome! We are glad you stopped by.
