Here are a few new signs that I painted recently. The side door was covered with them...but I wasn't quick enough with the camera and a few have since left the building.
Our candle collection has grown and now includes even more yummy
Hmmm...gingerbread or hot apple pie...I just can't decide!
And...the nicest part...they are made right here in Ontario!!
We love to be able to support local/Canadian artisans whenever we can.
That's right...more signs...I'm a painting fool these days. I hand letter each one with a brush...no stencils or markers for this outfit.
We tend to be purests about some things even if it means painting into the wee hours and guzzling coffee to stay awake. Goodness knows we do our best to keep the local Tim's afloat during peak times.
I meant to take a few photos of our latest glassware aquisitions but ran out of time....stay tuned for that. Thanks go out to our
number one picker aka Mom for her keen eye and scoring some lovely Cranberry glass.
Come back soon....we have lots more work in progress.
Until then...enjoy the changing season!

Can you believe it is nearly the middle of September?? We can't!! Terry and I have been busy in the workshop creating some new "Autumn/Halloween" prims and re-arranging the shop floor. With the approach of fall we just felt we needed to shake things up a bit and a change is as good as a rest as they say.
This afternoon we took down our summer hanging baskets full of tired petunias and replaced them with some sunny mums. Somehow just that small change put us into high gear as far as creating all things Autumn are concerned.
It won't be long now and we will have to put a fire on in the shop. Cooler, shorter days are on the way and you will find us huddled up to the woodstove with the tea kettle on.
Stop by if you find yourself out our way and plan to stay long enough to have a cuppa with us.

Until next time....enjoy life's simple pleasures.
