Front Door Stories

In The Studio!

2019 is a new beginning
"Bring the Spring" is how I am working this Winnipeg winter out. I took a chance and ordered some garden inspired ferns, hellebores & hyacinth to entice and inspire what is to come. This is the first year I am opening my studio up in February. My #gypsyroadtrip to Tofino, BC for New Years was an amazing foraging journey that brought back earthy mosses of all shades of green and cedar driftwood with textures only the ocean can bring. I can't help but share!

Stop by between 1pm & 6pm Friday's or
Saturday's 11am & 3pm
every weekend to experience the scents of the forest.

Inspiration is always free!

Gifts From The Garden

Handmade garden inspired gifts for anyone in your life that would enjoy a touch of spring or something unique for the person who has everything.



Did you know?

If you have been to the studio you probably have a memory of the fragrant smells as you walk in the door. This inspired us to make some fresh potpourri to add to your home. For Spring it's a Eucalyptus blend.

Bring your favourite bowl and have a spring inspired dish garden designed for you while you wait or pick up fresh material to
"Do it yourself"

Freshen up your outdoor Containers with spring inspired material.
