In honor of Spring Fever this year, I am going to show you some of my favorite bright things! Because today the sun is shining, the spring flowers are starting to bloom, and it reached 70 degrees yesterday. I couldn’t be more happy about the winter being over and Spring being here. They say Green is this years color of the year. But for me, it is anything bright and cheery and SPRINGlike! Happy Spring!  Indoor/Outdoor pillows, Pine Cone Hill Scarf, Indoor/Outdoor “Pouf”.










I don’t mean painted green (although our green milk paint colors: acadia pear, millstone, and sage are really pretty!). I am talking about good-for-the-environment-green. One of the things that we have a choice about is to buy really inexpensive furniture that fits what we need for right now, or furniture that is more expensive, but locally made and well made. The inexpensive stuff isn’t made well and doesn’t last long. I heard someone call it “throw away” furniture. The furniture we sell is meant to last a lifetime or more, so buying well-made furniture is good for the environment. Our furniture is also made right in Canada! So, buying locally is also good for the environment. We also use only water-based stains and our line of paints are milk paints- the greenest paint there is! Milk paint is safe for people and the environment. The ingredients used in the base paint are all biodegradable. Milk paint is completely free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), HAPs(Hazardous Air Pollutants) solvents, or harmful poisons of any kind. Milk paint is lead-free, mercury-free, free of petroleum by-products, and is low odor. We love the idea of making green choices when it comes to furniture!

Raw Chocolate! From Not Your Sugar Mamas, a Martha’s Vineyard company! Buy the chocolate bars at Bloomy Rind in Hingham Square! (21 Main Street)

What is Raw Chocolate? Simple ingredients with No Gluten, No Dairy, and No refined sugar! Ingredients:

  • Cacao:  The health benefits of cacao are numerous, particularly in it’s raw form since none of the nutrients have been lost in the heating process. It is the highest antioxidant food on the planet. It is also very high in magnesium which helps to relax the muscles, support the heart and increase brain power. The bliss chemical, Anandamide, is found in cacao making us feel happy and good!
  • Maca: is a root vegetable grown in Peru.  It helps increase strength and endurance. Maca is adaptogenic which means that it helps stabilize and maintain many of the body’s systems, such as endocrine, circulatory and immune system. It contains alkaloids which is said to increase libido.
  • Spirulina: One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It serves as a complete, balanced protein providing all 8 essential amino acids. It has very high levels of antioxidants. It also contains blood purification properties and is one of the only sources of the anti-inflammatory, joint-strengthening omega-6 fatty acid, GLA (gamma linolenic acid).
  • Himalayan sea salt– over 250 million years old, it is in it’s natural state so it is nutrient rich with all the beneficial trace elements and minerals. This type of salt does not extract high amounts of water from our cells so we will not become dehydrated, instead our bodies are provided with trace elements and nutrients that our bodies easily absorb and use.
  • Cinnamon: Great for cognitive function, circulation and memory. Cinnamon also helps to stave off depression and helps to balance our blood sugar.
  • Agave: A low glycemic sweetener high in inulins help increase calcium absorption and is a source of minerals. More on our source here.
  • Coconut Palm Sugar: A pure, natural, whole food, low glycemic sweetener. Contains vital minerals like potassium, magnesium, sulfur, zinc, iron and B Vitamins. It has 25% more potassium than bananas.
  • Pomegranate– Contains many vitamins and minerals including high levels of Vitamin C and potassium.  It is a powerful antioxidant so it helps protect against disease and aging. It is also very good for cardiovascular health.
  • Nutmeg– Aids the adrenals to give you optimal energy. Among numerous health benefits, it improves memory, relaxes the muscles and helps alleviate anxiety and depression.
  • Lucuma– a sweet and edible fruit, considered a healthy alternative sweetener with low amounts of natural sugar. It contains beta-carotene, niacin, iron, fiber and calcium.
  • Mesquite– native to south America this superfood is great for balancing blood sugar levels. It is a good source of fiber which helps with digestion. It contains lysine (an amino acid), protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc.
  • Lavender: Lavender is very calming and relaxing. It also has the ability to promote tissue regeneration.
  • Aphrodite’s Love Potion– A powerful elixir made by Skye Botanicals. Helps boost the libido along with the maca in our Be Sexy bar, watch out!
  • Peppermint: An awesome, naturally refreshing herb. A perfect way to cool off in the hot summer days. The menthol also helps aid digestion! Double bonus!
  • Love: we make sure to infuse love into all of our chocolate creations. We believe that the love we infuse into our chocolate goes directly into your bodies. So not only does it taste delicious and have incredible nutritional qualities, it will also nourish your spirit and soul!

Wish it could be warm sunlight… but only 8 more weeks until the first day of Spring. In the meantime, here are some photos of some of the new lamps we just got in. And more light coming soon, our new neighbor, Sorcha! Walking into Sorcha is like a burst of warm sunshine! I will post some photos of Sorcha next time. She opens tomorrow!


It is summer time for real now. I have been lazy and I will blame this perfect beach weather, I have no excuses other than I have been at the beach! I want to share one of my favorite things. It sort of speaks for itself, but of course I can’t help saying a few things about it!

 The lines are beautiful- I have never found one quite like this one!  The high back with just the right size wings… The aged oak legs peaking out… and most of all the cotton duck white slip cover! My favorite in contrasts- formal lines mixed up with casual fabric! Perfect for a home near the ocean, or in the city… I am going to order myself a pair.
