Simply White

we treated ourselves to a few days in Niagara-on-the-Lake

a lovely town close to ~ indeed ~ the Niagara Falls

we had a wonderful stay while enjoying the Holiday cheer, wineries and delicious food


on our way back home we stopped in St. Catharines

and I am so glad we did because I found this amazingly pretty shop...

Simply White is located in St. Catherines

but their home decorating advice takes the team everywhere

in store you will find home decorations, pretty table ware in white and vintage furniture

produced by carefully selected brands from all over the world

I was lucky to meet Bren, the lovely shop owner

she redecorates this beautiful shop a few times a year

and even makes her own matching mural art... how inspiring!

thank you so much Bren, for allowing me to take pictures and feature you on creJJtion!

I will definitely visit again

and follow their blog from now on

but in the meantime I enjoy the pretty and wintery items I got this first visit

wool yarn spun around an iron thread to make it go the way you like

so much fun to work with in my January after-Christmas-white-home-make-over

I learned a new English word ~ icicles ~

with the snow that just arrived here after Christmas

I think they are the perfect winter~feel addition to our windows

and our dressed up card holder robin is no longer alone

due to his two new white friends

aren't they cute together?
