Cherish the time you have with your Mom. Last summer my Mom ( in the photo above) made the big trek from Toronto to Thunder Bay. Even though she can't see, she enjoyed walking along Lake Superior. What special memories do you have of times spent with your Mum?


BEGINNERS COTTAGE PAINT CLASS - this Friday, May 9th. 6.30p.m.-9ish. 
This is a good class to take if you have never used Cottage Paint before. And you have projects you want to tackle now that the weather is getting warmer. It's better to practice and learn all the techniques first before you tackle your redo.
In this class you will be working on a wooden door, learning 1-colour distressing, 2-colour distressing, crackle, dry-brushing, antique glazing, waxing and varnishing.

If this time does not work for you, tentative dates for classes in June are Sunday, June 8th. from 1-4p. Call now to reserve your spot. If you have a group of 4 or more, you can call and arrange your own time.

Some of you are redoing bathrooms, some are repainting kitchen cabinets, some are planning on redoing furniture out at camp. We just received a shipment of Cottage paint, with great new colours for the Summer, and new neutrals in off whites and greys.  We have all shades of this season's hottest colour trend - BLUES.

 In order to attend this class, do pre-register by phoning us at 475-3551 or email at The cost is $48.00 plus hst. similar classes in other cities cost $80-125.00!
