  • 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.

    Nothing like a quarantine to decide to update the pillows, or the walls or the trim, or wash every surface imaginable. Right!? In this case I'll try my best to help with the pillows. Last week the third collection of the year at Oliver and Rust was released. Albeit to a closed store but, persuing...
  • A simple refresh in the bedroom.

All that inspiration out there and my living room needed a little "fluffing" A benefit of my pillow making hustle is new ones whenever the mood strikes...
  • Collection 2020 No.2: Terrain

    Last week we were able to release the second collection of the year into the shop and online. This one is named TERRAIN. Why? I don't really know other than it just had that kind of feeling. Earthy muted tones connecting to the sky and water.  Looking out on the terrain. Are you feeling it? Gener...

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.
