Throwback Wednesday ๐ŸŽถ Xmas 2014

Video of Xmas A Year Ago & Our Business Location


Merry Holidays to You! We had some fun with the video link highlighted at the top. We are a small business, indeed. Doing our best to keep things active for our small floral home business for weddings, four years now. In business for six.

See the video link highlighted at the top for how we got organized in 2014, by moving from a one bedroom to a two bedroom apartment. Eleven weddings in 4 years, is just enough for myself being the only employee.

The Xmas part of the video has a small tree, in honour of our small business. ๐ŸŽถ ๐ŸŽต ๐Ÿ’

Doug and I wish you the best Christmas, big or small. Our families and friends are all different sizes, and all great in our eyes.

Merry Holidays and Best Regards,

Ellen and Doug ย  His and Hers for You

Your responses to our survey are muchly appreciated! Thank You.

Christmas 2014, a year ago! Much has happened since this video. I looked for employment and visited my daughter in Hamilton Ontario. My grandchildren are growing fast, all 4 of them. My Dad is happy. My husband is happy.

This December, we begin welcoming the refugees from Syria and we work with a new prime minister with a caring heart. All of you, work hard and enjoy the moments that make us happy.

The response to our survey this week was encouraging. We would love for a few more responses by way of taking the quick 5 minute survey by way of the highlighted link above. Our hometown video link is there as well.

Here’s wishing that the refugees settle into a new country, here with all of us and are given the necessary alotment of time to transition.

Christmas is in 20 days……and counting. ๐Ÿ’

A Merry Christmas for everyone.

About Us

From Early 1900’s – A Timepiece


This project was one I most enjoyed. My Father had given me a couch cushion of my Grandmothers. I remember it well, when it was placed on her living room chesterfield, every time I visited Grama. Grama would be in her 113th year this year. She was 82 years old when she passed away. Memories of the miniature tea set that all of the grandchildren played with, and Grama making my first cup of tea when I had stitches in my lip when falling that day, are still fond memories. The tea was so good, real or imagined, big or small, all with her love and gentle blessings and care.

The pillow sham pictured here, was sewn by myself with her cushion fabric, so carefully cleaned, placed and sewn, into the middle of fabric I purchased recently, to refurbish and revatilize my Grama’s heirloom. The cushion from the Early 1900’s was pretty tattered in The Year 2010, and couldn’t just be put in a closet for safe keeping. I hope my Grandmother is proud of the sewing project that stemmed from her craftiness with knitting and hand sewing. My Aunt, her daughter, is a fantastic seamstress today.

God Bless Our Grandmothers, eh?!

Above is also a pic of our whole bedroom ensemble.
