  • Christie Antique Show

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.

If you are new here, welcome! We are glad you stopped by.
