At long last.....Everything is opening up! You can come into our store, the Camellia, and SHOP!! ( Wear a mask, and follow all the usual safety protocols). No more guessing at the wrong paint colours. There are a lot of products which just can't be ordered online. Cottage Paint colours on the computer are not the same as the actual colour in the can.
Ontario is 75% vaccinated with their first dose, and 25% have had both doses. We know everyone is ready for Life to return to some sort of normal. At least, it's Summer now and everything is lush, and green. Time to leave our homes, and get outside!
Who can't wait to go a longish Road trip? Parents wanting to be able to see their children. Grandparents wanting to see their grandbabies. Those waiting for the U.S./Canada border to open up ( supposedly we are weeks away from borders opening up ). Here in Northern Ontario, most of us have been out Fishing and Day Camping.
Twilight at Thunder Bay's marina ....Summertime is here!
Summer is a good time to change out your Floral arrangements in your Home or Camp. so many of us have missed our winter vacays in the Tropics, why not decorate with our real-looking Hibiscus and Ginger stems? No water or extra care needed, they have long stems so they are suitable for use in a tall vase.
Here at the Camellia, we stock Cottage Paint which is a water-based chalk-like Paint that transforms Furniture and cabinets. Cottage Paint has a wonderful palette of 60+ colours, and we can tint here at our store.
Summer gardens have their own spectacular array of lovely lavenders and purples, and off-whites.
We have been working on some DIY sign kits which you can purchase if you have a small Craft party in your Home. Letters are black or white Vinyl, kits include a wooden board and Cottage Paint. Phone us at 807-475-3551 for prices .
Cottage Paint is perfect for Garden projects. Gardens look lovely with the addition of Birdhouses, and small obelisks, and ornaments. This colour is Robin's egg blue, and pairs up well with our patio tablecloths. These have a hole in the middle for the umbrella and a zipper up to the hole.
Here is a work-in-progress. A deco mesh Wreath which would look great out at Camp, this will be a DIY kit you can purchase to make your own. It is time consuming, but the end result is worth it.
You can clip on photos of your family onto this wreath. Which brings us to another topic, take lots of photos. You never know when that photo is all you have left of someone.
Visit us here at the Camellia, at 30/32 Hacquoil Rd. Slate River, Ontario.
