Springtime Inspiration

With the weather how it is today, we thought we’d bring the shop to you through the magic of the internet! It’s like window shopping, but in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy!

With spring decor it’s fun to add some colour and a touch of playfulness! We think the  boiled wool bunnies and eggs are so cute. The multicoloured hobnail lanterns are bright and cheery! We also have some sweet tea lights that look like spring flowers- they’re great for a centrepiece.


We freshened up the entrance of the shop with lots of green! We have  a selection of inspirational design books and  green blown glass vases. We mounted some of our vintage crates on the wall to create unique shadow boxes.

We had fun creating this pretty vignette on the left. We like mixing old and new and different design styles to keep things interesting. Our silver standing birds are sweet and add a touch of sparkle.

We have a great selection of antique side tables in the shop right now, and some interesting nautical finds.

We have a couple of these beautiful large lanterns in the shop that would work for indoors or out. We’re also carrying Reallite candles- they’re battery operated! On the right, a vintage loveseat that we had reupholstered with a stunning ikat fabric from Kravet.

Here’s a peek at some of our sea treasures and bath products. We love Tokyo Milk- a line of bath products from the US  that’s made from crushed and distilled essences. The packing is beautiful, and the products smell amazing!

We get so excited when the sari throws arrive to the shop. Our latest shipment was filled with bright spring colours and lovely floral patterns. These cotton throws are hand stitched in India from vintage saris. They add instant character and colour to the end of a bed, or on a sofa or armchair.

We hope you enjoyed your peek at our new spring inspirations! Be sure to come in soon and take a look for yourself!




Outdoor Holiday Decor Inspiration

We have a feast for your eyes today! To get ready for the holidays, one of our long-time customers enlisted Sappho to work her designer magic on the outside of her beautiful home. So, yesterday afternoon, despite the unseasonable rain, Sappho created a series of outdoor arrangements to add that festive touch!

What a way to welcome holiday visitors! The swag and urns really draw attention to the entry. The ribbon adds a dash of colour and that essential touch of holiday sparkle!

This wooden barrel-style planter was dressed up with cedar and some stainless steel gazing balls from henhouse.

A wonderful mix of wintery stems, berries, apples, birch twigs, and giant pine cones. Sappho used many different textured greens along with a  few bright pops of colour to create this stunner. The green apples add an unexpected element. Love it!

Gorgeous window-box arrangement!

This is a unique wreath put together by Sappho. Our builder cut this star shape out of marine grade wood, then Sappho wrapped it in seasonal greenery, and tied it up with a bow.

Our customer was so pleased with her new decor! What do you think of it?

We hope you’re enjoying you’re own holiday preparations. Don’t forget we still have lots of beautiful holiday decor at our shop to add that sparkle to your home too!

Don’t forget We’ve extended our hours until Christmas! We are now open late Thursdays and Fridays (10am-8pm) and we will also be open on Mondays (10sm-5pm) for your holiday shopping convenience!
