Here we are at the end of August, and it's been feeling like Fall here for the last 2 weeks. What happened to Summer? We've had frost 2 nights this week, the windshields on our vehicles have been iced up. Most of us here in Thunder Bay feel like we have barely had any Summer, and now an early Fall. Well, there is SO much to like about Fall. The colours of Fall - rusts, browns, beiges, cinnamon, dark greens, yellows and so many more colours that exude warmth and images of snuggling under a warm throw.
I know it feels like you have barely gotten the Patio set out on your Porch, and your Garden, well, enough said about that. I was embarrassed about the state of my gardens yesterday, when I was showing a client some of my fast-growing perennials. We spotted 2 huge holes dug up by some critter. And a falling down Delphinium. It's hard to keep up with all the yardwork and weeding.
Sunflowers always add a splash of colour to your Fall decor. Not a fan of yellow? We have beige and neural tones in the store.
Here is a small #cottagepaint project you can try on your own.....paint an old muffin tin and turn it into a jewellery holder, or a place to store all those thingamajigs that collect on your counters. We stock Cottage Paint here at #the Camellia.
If you are stencilling, #cottagepaint is your #1 paint as it is water-based, and very easy to clean off your stencils. Check our website for our current #classes. www.thecamellia.com
Sometimes, it feels like the 100 Mile journey playing out here. We sometimes get phone calls...Do you have a store IN-TOWN? Hah...what..? Our store is one-quarter of a mile outside City limits. That's a quarter of a mile, not 100 miles, not 3 hours from Thunder Bay, just a simple 10 (TEN) MINUTES from the Thunder Bay airport.
Once you get here, you'll be glad that you did! Plan to visit The Camellia this Fall!
We are OPEN Wed. 11-5, Thurs. 12-6, Fri. and Sat. 11-5, and Sunday 12-5. A simple way to remember is that we are Open every day except Mondays & Tuesdays.
Note we will be closed from Sept. 17, and will reopen on Oct. 4. 2017.
