Harvest Happenings!

Cozy up and fall in love with our autumn picks at The Abode.


November Spotlight

Featured Artist

Jolinda Lampo

An artist with a big, giving heart sparked creativity in such a unique way. When she rescued her retriever, Lily, fourteen years ago, she felt the call to contribute more to the organization. Lampo now designs, builds, and paints custom birdhouses made from recycled and repurposed materials with all proceeds going towards Retrievers & Friends of Southern California. So, when you buy one of her birdhouses, you are supporting a worthy cause! Next time you stop by The Abode, wander out back and peek at her work. You can follow her on Instagram @birdhouses4thedogs.

Featured Product


Relax and treat yourself to a mini spa-like experience in your shower with hydra AROMATHERAPY®. Infused with essential oils, these shower bursts enhance your regular routine to give you an authentic at-home spa treatment. Bring the fragrant burst in the shower with you and the steam will activate the oils to deliver the desired benefits. For maximum effect, hang the shower burst from a mesh bag under the shower head. We carry a variety of fragrances, such as Relax, Stress Buster, and Refresh to name a few!

A Grateful Heart

Conversations around the dinner table organically spark storytelling and curiosity while adding to a traditional communal atmosphere of a family dinner. Stories from past memories come to light and we might share some laughter as we bond over a delicious meal. The beautiful part about all of this is that new memories start to form as we share about the old. Gratitude is felt between the laughs and full bellies, and we recognize that we must hold onto these moments, for tomorrow will come and present a new day. The moment doesn’t last forever, but in our memories they remain a lifetime. At The Abode, we appreciate you, our friends and family, for the inspiration and support to memorialize our legacy in our community and home.
