Some pieces just need to be refreshed so why not offer a little incentive for someone to take that drab looking table home.

I am officially addicted to making these barn quilts!
I want to make a larger one for my shed at home too.
They are a tad bit time consuming but the pay off is amazing. It's almost cathartic once you get into a rhythm.
This beauty is available in store to purchase for $95.
Message me if you are interested in attending the workshop on May 18 and 25 or if you are interested in a custom quilt for your own without the work!
Be sure to check out the Ontario Barn Quilt website too! I might have to plan a tour of the County for further inspiration.
I am in love with this little vignette.
Every last bit of it!
Just finished this fab little desk in Country Chic's Lazy Linen with a touch of their Belt Buckle Cream as a highlight. The desk pairs wonderfully with the vintage 1960's roller map of the Circulatory System.
This would make a wonderful study corner in a room while you learn countries names in French with the vintage globe.

Sometimes you come across something that is intriguing and you cannot help but spend hours exploring it.
For me, it was articles on Percy Township that I found online and in turn found a Facebook page called "Memories of Percy Township".
If you are interested in history or in my case learning more about this adopted village and what makes it tick.
I found articles about the four corners that I live in called Brickley, why it was named such and the history of the little white school house that belongs to my neighbour.
Below are pictures of Main St with my little shop in them.
If buildings could tell stories!
Learn about the Battle of Percy, the history of the Cheese House, the Mill, the Fire and how it started (and speculations too!)
The site is an amazing glimpse into a past so rich with history.
Not everyday is sunshine and lollipops, which is okay. I know the busy season is just about to begin and now it's a great time to plan and self reflect.
What colours to order? What will look good on this piece of furniture?
Gosh I have a lot of stuff, maybe I should set out a discount table on the weekend.
In the meantime, I'm just over here planning new workshops, promoting current ones, painting furniture, blogging and eating a fab rice bowl from the local cafe.
Thank you to everyone who nominated 13 and 1 for the Ignite 2018 -Business Award.
Congratulations to all the other nominees! Good luck and we will see you on the 28th at the Award Ceremony.
