September at the Camellia, Slate River Valley, Ontario.

As always, September seems to come along way too early. Sunflowers are in full bloom, and even though the days are still warm,  the nights are on the chilly side. Of course, after the hot summer we have had, everything feels cold in comparison.
What was your Summer like, weather-wise?

As summer draws to a close, some of us are a bit panicked about all the painting projects we meant to get finished, but somehow, was summer and Fishing and Camp and Life happened. Is it too late to paint? No, especially with the warm temperatures we have been enjoying lately. Just get started on your painting projects, and you'll be surprised at how quickly they will get done. Need Cottage Paint? Stop in at our store at 30, Hacquoil Rd. We have Paints, brushes, sample colours and more.

Here is a tin muffin pan, painted with Cottage Paint, lightly distressed, and voila! 
A catchall for keys or jewellery, or those random bits and pieces that seem to accumulate on counters.

dried flower bouquet at The Camellia

It was a great Summer for growing Flowers, and we have been busy harvesting, drying, and making up Dried Flower bouquets, like this one with ferns, grasses, oregano and peonies. These are for sale in our store, the Camellia, at 30, Hacquoil Rd.

All around us, Fall is in the air, ferns and grasses make a spectacular show of colours and textures. Here at The Camellia, we draw inspiration from Nature, and a lot of foilage from our fields finds its way into our dried bouquets.

Today, these hanging Eucalyptus sprays were made up for use in an At-Home-Spa area, or in a bathroom. Eucalyptus will smell wonderful once the bathroom steams up, and this helps clear sinus congestion. In this swag, we used field ferns, seeded eucalyptus, baby eucalyptus, and limonium. We will have a number of these for sale in the upcoming virtual Craft Revival Christmas edition 2020.
