We were spoiled last week with warm temperatures, and now reality of the typical Canadian winter is here. I’m ready to cuddle up with a warm blanket and have a tea right after dinner. I’ve been enjoying the show “The Queen’s Gambit” on Netflix. Even though I know nothing about Chess it is fascinating to watch.

If you are working from home during the holidays, this post might be helpful. I find it hard to be productive at home if my mind is racing and I am thinking of all the other things I need to get done. At least most of us won’t be doing much entertaining and keeping your house super tidy will be low on the to-do list.

I saw these hand cut tree sculptures from a local artist recently and thought they would make a great holiday gift. They are so beautiful you could keep them up all year long.

We have some new product on the floor available for immediate delivery. So many of our customers are on the hunt for the perfect coffee or end table. We just received some new models in the shop that you might fall in love with. Warm walnut wood, calcutta marble, and mixed metal accents.

“Montreal-based artist Raku Inoue uses an assortment of freshly-cut blooms to create colorful insect sculptures. Each delicately crafted floral arrangement transforms the earthy creatures into ethereal works of art, exhibiting the artist’s creative use of materials and unexpected approach to his subject matter.” Check out his artwork here.

These photos of flocks of birds in The Danish Marshlands are amazing!

One of the easiest ways to transform your space is with lighting. New builds often come with inexpensive lighting and switching out your flush mounts, vanity lights and chandeliers is an easy process. We can help you get the look you want whether your style is traditional or modern and maintain a cohesive look throughout your home. In a few weeks your new lighting will arrive and you will be glad you are no longer looking up at fixtures that made you unhappy.

Check out these puzzles by Every Piece Counts. This Toronto-based initiative was created to give back during these times of COVID through profit donations to charitable causes. They would make a wonderful gift.

Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria might be a nice beverage for this time of year.

Take 20 minutes out of your day and watch these funny dog videos. I think we all need a good laugh!
