Spring and Seedlings

Here's what stopped me in my tracks today.....this display of seed packets in Zellers, Intercity Mall. I started dreaming of digging in the dirt, with images of blooms floating around in my head. Burpee's Seeds, as seen in Thunder Bay Intercity Mall, Zellers. Tomorrow is March, yes ............! we move closer to warm weather and Gardening season..!

What are you dreaming of today? I spoke to someone today who told me her favourite Caribbean island is Barbados. She was dreaming of a dolphin burger..I've tried Flying Fish, but have never tasted Dolphin burger.
Camellia's...30/32 Hacquoil Rd. Open: Wednesday through Sunday.

Sleep, Time & Cotton Nighties

I wonder what's in the old armoire? This armoire is a yard-sale project which I recovered in Waverly Toile fabric panels.
As ones gets older, Sleep, or lack thereof, becomes a priority.
Promise yourself the Gift of TIME. Just 30 mins. at the end of the day will do wonders. Change into a fine cotton nightie or some cotton Pj's, and settle down for some R & R. Our Nighties are ever so soft and the ultimate in comfort. Cotton breathes, so if you're going through the M stage, cotton is what you should be wearing. You know the M stage, on again , off again with the covers, open the window, close the window, flap flap..flap..flap.. Which fool put the Fan into storage for the Winter? Go into the Stoargae shed and get it , Now!!..What do you mean,No?....
Sound familiar? Feel free to leave comments as to how you are coping with this.

We have many styles available, this is a Nightshirt, with slits on the sides. We stock large and extra large, all styles are roomy.

This is a new faux peony, flowers in a vase beside your bed will always cheer you up. If you travel lots, and can't take care of fresh flowers, this peony and you are made for each other.

Try a proven remedy to help you Sleep - Lavender. Spray some on your pillow just before
drifting off. Come into Camellia's to get some.
Lavender from Niagara-on-the-lake. Folow Dr. Oz'z guidelines on sleeping, turn off all electronics, make like a bat- have a dark room, for more information, visit his website.

Crystals & Jewellery

So much inspiration can be found in Nature! Take a look at this display of crystals supported by natural tree branches. This was taken in Hofland 's old location ( they have since moved to a larger facility nearby). Maybe you have used crystals similar to these at Christmas. Why put them away? Grab a branch from outside, come into The Camellia to get a stunning glass vase, and hang your crystals off the branches. Instant bling!

Crystals are predominant in Jewellery. Here's one of our pieces for sale in the store.
We are OPEN this Sunday, 20th. Feb. Noon-4p. Have a Happy Family Day weekend!

Be You, Be Loved, Valentine's Day 2011

Communication is the key in any relationship. How will you let your loved ones know that you care about them on Valentine's Day? Roses..Gerbera daisies...tulips .... carnations....

Women are always waiting for the guys to know exactly what they want on Valentine's Day, and unfortunately, most guys don't have a clue, so help them God. Women want to have the perfect date, the perfect plan, the perfect dinner.... This puts a lot of pressure on guys to plan the perfect Valentine. Of course, if you are not a mind-reader, and you guess the wrong thing, and if this happens on VALENTINE'S DAY, you are in the proverbial Doghouse, so to speak. So how about some direct communication ; no more mind reading. this is what I want... as women we don't ask for what we want... we expect them to magically know.... and invariably we are disappointed. Plan this Valentine's day TOGETHER, and see where that leads....

You can't go wrong with Flowers and Chocolates. Everyone loves to get these. At The Camellia, we deliver in Thunder Bay. Delivery charges start at $7.00. Call us early for the best selection and service.

A Lavender Spa basket is a welcome treat in the middle of Winter.
Great for quenching dried-out winter skin.

If you are working out-of-town and you can't be with your honey-bunny, how about sending a fluffy Teddy bear for them to cuddle..?
Teddy has the word LOVE embroidered on his paw....

Call Camille at (807)475-3551 to order, or toll-free within Canada at 1-877-523-7444.

Don't forget Valentine's Day is Monday Feb. 14th.

Lines & Shadows at Toronto Congress Centre

Buildings can be so inspiring, full of lines and curves, and shadows. Some people casually walk through the hallways without noticing the architecture around them. Maybe today, you can stop, and look around you as you are walking, you never know what you may see.
