  • The Whiskey & Gin pillow collection has arrived with a side of autumn

    And..... it's my first blog post here since everything moved, so hopefully I can figure this sucker out.  The weather has gotten cooler and it's time to flip around the house, clean after the longest March break ever and maybe treat ourselves to some new stuffed animals. Ahem..... pillows. The W...
  • A Summer Living Tour at Home

    An alternate title to the this post could 100% of have been, That plant is too big for that table.But you know what?I don't much care.Because that vintage pot and that Cast iron plant look sexy together and we don't sit in here much at this time of year so I left it once I figured out they fit to...

  • A bigger girl room

    It's been awhile in the making.

    Our little girl got a little bit bigger when she graduated from a crib to a big girl bed in December. 

    At the time in the midst of her birthday and Christmas it was really all we did.

    We found a mattress and a frame and plopped it in.

    It gave me time to think about how she uses the room as her little three year old self and how she'll use it for the next couple years.

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.
