Happy Fall!

It's officially the first day of Fall today! Remembering our Mr. Benji, always by my side when I am tromping through the yard picking ferns, berries and branches to create Fall wreaths. And sniffing outside the vegetable garden for any forgotten tomatoes, he loved his tomatoes. Well, here in Slate River Valley , we have been blessed with an abundant Harvest and warm weather this Fall. How about you, what's the weather like where you live? 

Something we don't see in the Caribbean  is this colourful changing of leaves. It truly is spectacular. 

A great time to get out and go for a Fall hike. 

You can collect fall foilage to make a Wreath or you attend out Wreath making Workshop. Create a 
Harvest Wreath at The Camellia with dried and preserved foilage - oak leaves, bamboo leaves, wheat and pods, tied with burlap ribbon. In this class, you will learn basic techniques of binding, wiring and bow making. All supplies included in class fee of $95.00 +hst. Class takes place Sept. 30th. 2015 from 6.30 - 8.30p. 

  Come out to our Fall Open house which starts this Saturday , September 26th. at 30, Hacquoil Rd. 
Open Wed. 11-5, Thurs. 12-5, Fri. 11-5, Sat.11-5. Sun. 12-5.

A Visit to Restoration Hardware

How many of you drool over the Restoration Hardware catalogue? We were lucky enough to visit a Restoration Hardware store recently, and it was a treat. 

As soon as you enter you are enveloped in tones of greys, beiges and taupes. There is a sense of tranquility in neutrals. And there are over-the-top crystal light fixtures. Farmhouse tables ..... bowls of moss. 

Rolled-up scrolls as a centerpiece.

Comfy upholstered chairs. 

Fluffy beds to sink into.

Mohair throws for the cold nights ahead. 

Tables and  furniture made with reclaimed wood. You can custom order similar tables from Brad, made with wood from Thunder Bay sawmills. 

How simple this is ... a bowl filled with moss.....

Don't you love the rolling ladder..?

Visit The Camellia for Fall flowers in earthtones and neutrals. 

Rich tones of rusts, golden yellows, and oranges now in stock. 

Beekman 1802 Goats' Milk bodycare products  - perfect in a Restoration Hardware inspired bathroom. 

Have a lovely Fall! Visit The Camellia at 30, Hacquoil Rd. for all your Fall decorating needs, Beekman 1802, and grey Cottage Paint inspired by the colours at Restoration Hardware.
