This living room definitely has fall vibes, warm wood tones and lush fabrics create the right amount of texture. The art print that we carry in the shop caught my eye first. Contact us to order this abstract piece, available in several sizes.

Charcoal & Rose Petals is local and carries some beautiful hand-made, all-natural, small batch and cruelty free beauty products. “All ingredients used in my products are all natural, from the colorants used in the soaps to the essential oils in creams and salves. One of my favorite tricks is infusing oils with botanicals to extract their natural colors, aromas and healing properties. All soaps are vegan, as well as many of our other products!”  – SarahAnn Goldnau-Vogt

Some of us may be making our kids school lunches once again. Don’t forget about taking something healthy to snack on while you are at work. Loved these adult lunchable ideas.

In the summer I love a Moscow Mule cocktail. Here is a twist on the classic drink I will have to try with caramel and apple. You might enjoy this drink as well.

Pumpkin dog treats you can bake at home courtesy of Peterborough’s own Adventure Tail Dog Walking. If you need someone reliable to walk your pet they are fantastic!

An outdoor activity that you may feel comfortable doing with your family this Fall is apple picking. Here is a great list of apple recipes to try, that includes a good mix of sweet and savoury recipes. The photos look so good!

If you want to take a little road trip, the Brockville railway tunnel looks pretty cool.

I received the book “In The Company Of Women” a few years ago and really enjoyed it. They just released a paper back version, and it would be a great gift for any female maker or entrepreneur. Lots of inspiring interviews.

This puppy rescue story brought a tear to my eye.

This art installation is so beautiful! For this year’s i Light Marina Bay Festival, a sustainability-focused, Singapore-based spectacle, Choi+Shine Architects created The Urchins, a series of 3 interactive installations. The crochet sea urchin sculptures have been meticulously crafted by hand, offering attendees a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. Photo by Choi + Shine Architects.

 Love these postcards that look like Pantone colour chips. “Match your pal’s personality to a Pantone color and bring some much-needed joy to their life. You may just inspire them to add a bit of color to their daily routine—paint a wall, try a new nail color shade, or change their desktop background to something more spunky. Hey, every little bit of happiness counts in 2020.”- Olivia Harvey

A while back I shared my love for the Canadian television show Schitt’s Creek…guess what? They just won big time at the Emmy Awards. Yay Canada!!
