bluebellgray at hudson’s bay

Spring is in the air at the Hudson’s Bay Company with the arrival of bluebellgray, a Scottish textile company run by the fabulous Fiona Douglas. Based off of her own colourful watercolours, these designs have been digitally printed onto natural materials which are then made into bed linens, pillows and furniture. Amanda Etty and I had the pleasure of meeting Fiona a couple weeks ago and seeing the whole line in person. Read on to learn more about the company and to see a few snap shots from our visit!

kitchen cravings: structure bakeware

I think it’s safe to say that Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend officially rings in baking season (for those of us who aren’t year-round bakers). I got a sneak peek at a brand new collection of bakeware from Quebec-based Trudeau, and lovely readers, I think you’ll be as pleased as I was.

The Structure collection features everything you love about silicone bakeware – non-stick and flexible properties ensure muffins and loaves easily pop right out of their pans – plus the added bonus of a reinforced steel rim for secure handling. Your baking lives just got a whole lot easier!

Soft and luxurious faux fur is having a moment this fall, and with good reason. I’ve been seeing the coziest accessories everywhere, and have been daydreaming about spending days cuddled up in them.

What do you think – if you had $75 to spend this weekend, which would you choose – a faux fur toss cushion or scarf?
