Happy Spring!

Yes, you heard that right, today is the first Day of   S P R I N G !!  ( even though we continue to be blessed with gifts of Snow).Shown in the photo above is a mason jar painted with Cottage Paint, holding fresh daffys and faux bulbs, yes you can mix fresh and faux flowers.

This morning, I was once again scraping ice and snow off my windshield, and saying a few choice words. I am looking forward to Spring, and am dreaming of this field of muscari blooms at Keukenhof in Lisse, Holland. Lucky duck who lives there!

How do you get through the Spring blahs....? Definitely poring over gardening magazines helps. We are busy getting ready for the Spring Home & Garden show coming up April 4, 5, 6 , 2014 at the CLE grounds.

Inspired by our Spring colours in Cottage Paint. And hats off to those of you who are painting away, getting all their refinishing projects done before the nice weather gets here. Cottage Paint classes coming up again in mid April, keep checking our website at

Find inspiration in budding branches. You can force them indoors by placing branches in a bucket of water, and wetting them down in the shower. They may take a while, but they will bud indoors.

Yellows and greens seem to be popular this Spring.

Love the Yelows and greys.

Colour is everywhere, as seen in this display of Fiesta ware.

Come visit us at The Camellia for colourful Spring Inspiration. We are open Wed. through Sunday.
Friday.....11-5, Sat. 11-5. Sun. 12-5.
