Ethel here. Shauntelle has been working so hard getting the store ready for our upcoming renovations, as well as the books ready for tax season, that I gave her the night off and sent her off to bed with a stack of gossip magazines. While she's catching up on her Hollywood gossip, I thought I'd share my thoughts with you all on springtime and our upcoming renovations. It's so apropos that the renovations are happening in the spring, as spring is a time for new beginnings. We're getting our storefront sign refurbished to better reflect the revamped logo, and we're putting in a new feature wall behind the cash desk. We're also working with Todd Temporale of Viva & Co, (the company behind Whigby, our favourite card and paper line) on new window graphics to advertise our upcoming interior design services packages. As you all may know, Shauntelle is an interior designer and is available for interior design work, if she can fit it into her busy schedule!
Spring is also about flowers. And what girl doesn't love flowers!
This darling little painting has it all. Birds, flowers, and a colour palette worthy of the best Brady Bunch bedroom. Take it home for $40
UPDATE: painting has sold
These two sets of daisy canisters are $40 each and would look fabulous in your kitchen!
This ceramic dish features birds and flowers worthy of Sgt. Pepper, and would add that swingin' 60's vibe to your table. At $24, it's a steal, and we won't tell anyone if you don't actually use it for serving food!
UPDATE: ceramic dish has sold!
This set of two linen placemats with matching napkins would also set your table a swingin' and at $22 for the set, who can resist?
If you're looking for a springtime project, why not sew up a storm with this gorgeous piece of 70's linen, featuring a harvest gold, avocado green and burt orange floral pattern.
Priced at $95, it's big enough for a tablecloth, napkins and placemats, or a lounging by the pool caftan.
So when you're out there planting your garden and thinking of flowers, think of Ethel too!
See you at the store!
