World Reclaimed - Check out this fantastic new shop!

Terrific people doing great work. This is what motivates me in life. Being in business for self there are times when you feel super duper (yes, I used that term) motivated and other times when you need a good kick in the pants. That kick in the pants is when I see other BFS (biz for selfers) doing their 'thang!'

Yesterday, I received a newsletter from Aloe Designs (if you need landscaping design these are your peeps!) They have started a new venture called World Reclaimed - a line of home and garden goods.

This new online shop was born out of this husband and wife team who love working with their hands and making beautiful things. It's modern design and old world simplicity. How perfect!

Here is a peek of the items they are offering. Great Christmas and hostess gift idea. They are also having a pop up shop sale on December 5th from 6-9 at their studio. I can't wait to go!

I love when I see people authentically fulfilling their vision and dreams. It inspires me.

Holiday Inspiration...Oh yes, I do mean Christmas!

I know, I know. It's only November 12, but I'm feeling the holiday spirit a bit early this year. Not sure if it's the age of my girls, or excited to be in our new home for Christmas but whatever it is we have already watched The Grinch about 5 times and hubby and I indulged in our favourite holiday classic -  the movie Love Actually.

My 5 year old is busy each day making Advent calendars for her and her sister (amazing what $13 will buy at the dollar/craft store) and as I'm writing this blog I have my Fraser Fir candle from Indigo going. Speaking of Indigo - that store is flipping amazing. Beautiful things right now. Anyway...this far too early Christmas spirit thing has me "pinning" a few inspiration ideas.

I'm going a bit more Arts & Crafts this year than normal. Tis the season...Enjoy!
