It's finally SPRING!

It has been so beautiful lately, warm and sunny, and our snow is rapidly melting. Tulips are starting to burst out of the ground, and everyone is happy. 

Gardeners can't wait to get their hands into the soil. We can't wait to go to Paulusma's Greenhouses here in Thunder Bay for Kangaroo Paw ( above photos) 

It's a perfect time to change out your winter bedding, and have something lighter for the warmer days ahead. Come into #The Camellia today for oh-so-soft cotton bedding, in duvet covers and quilts. 


We have so many pillows, changing your pillow covers is a quick and inexpensive way to freshen up your decor. 

Why not paint your furniture with Urban Cottage Paint? We sell #CottagePaint here at The Camellia.

Bring Spring into your hOme with Brunelli Room Sprays. 

#Mother'sDay is coming on May 8th. 2016. We have lots of #Mother'sDayGiftsDeliveryThunderBay.

April in Northern Ontario

It's April...we're that much closer to Spring or are we now? It's snowing out there, again. At this point..most of us just want to see green again. The Robins have returned, and some Canada Geese are flying back. What is the weather like where you live? Of course, Canadians are obsessed with the weather. We check it at least 2 times a day. Just so we can know how to dress for the Day ahead. 

We can dream about these large Sunflowers we planted last year

One way to feel Springlike is to paint an old piece of furniture you may have laying around, paint it a bright colour such as Bimini or Turquoise. Bright colours  just make you feel better. come into our store, the Camellia, to look at our selection of  #CottagePaint, in over 50 colours. 

Add some green to your decor, in the form of succulents, faux or real. 

Even a simple bowl of green moss will make you feel Springlike. 

Thank you to all of you who stopped by our booth at the Spring Home & Garden show! The Camellia is open this week Wednesday through Sunday. Thurs. 12-5, Fri. & Sat. 11-5. Sunday 12-5p.
