Big News.

Well, I guess I didn’t have to keep you waiting too long before I revealed my BIG announcement after-all! You may have heard the news already if you follow a certain couple of blogs, so, rather than continue to hint, let me present the next chapter of my life…a bricks and mortar storefront! Spruce Collective is the collaboration between Lily, Monica, Jessica, Elisa and myself and we couldn’t be more excited!!! A retail shop full of all things vintage and well loved, handmade goods from local artisans, our favourite new products, a certain line of paint (to be announced!) and creative classes for all! We cannot wait to dig in and get started and have so many big plans.

Spruce will open early this fall (eek!) in Downtown Abbotsford and we have a lot to do before then, although most of it is fun…once we get all of the boring but oh-so-necessary business bits behind us. I am beyond thrilled to partner up with these amazing ladies!

Between packing up and moving my family somewhere (still to be decided) and opening a full-fledged retail store all in the next couple of months, I definitely have my work cut out for me! And although I am freaking out a little bit (Dustin would say a lot :)), about all that is on my plate right now, I couldn’t be happier and I just know that this is the right timing. The details all fell into place so quickly and I just couldn’t pass up such an amazing opportunity!

Our logo and website are being “spruced” up (hehe) as we speak but for now you can stay tuned on our shiny new Facebook page…and I’ll be sharing lots here too, of course!

P.S. Since I will be a busy bee in the coming months with this new venture, I will unfortunately be pulling my Twig Home items from Cozy Home at the end of August and Creekside at the end of September. I have so enjoyed being a part of these two amazing stores and am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to sell under someone else’s roof.

A Few Lovely Things.

Hello! I hope your week is going well so far. Mine has been filled with family visits (my brother and his wife and 2 daughters are moving here from Kentucky this week!), treasure hunting, and doctors appointments (Wren’s immunizations). So I just haven’t had the time to pop in here until now. I haven’t posted a few lovely things for awhile now so I feel like I could have chosen hundreds of items, but I limited myself to just these 11. Hope you enjoy.

A lovely vintage inspired print.

Some lovely hair ties… which also look pretty on your wrist – genius!

A lovely chair.

Lovely little macaroon trinket boxes.

A lovely ring.

A lovely vintage teakettle.

A lovely blanket.

A lovely burlap pouf.

A lovely vintage industrial light.

A lovely vintage dress.

A lovely DIY. (Twig Home currently has several antique wooden spools for sale at Creekside if you want to give this a try).

Twig Home Shop Update.

Well, I can’t believe it’s finally Friday! I thought it would never come :). A lot has changed in the past few of months for me, personally, as well as for Twig Home, and I think it is about time I pop in here with a little update for you all.

Towards the end of my pregnancy I stopped opening my little shop in Chilliwack thinking I would reopen it sometime after having Wren. But since becoming a mother, it is clear to me that I just don’t have the time to keep it open anymore. So at this point I am keeping it closed indefinitely. Also, most of you know I was previously selling vintage items out of Tracycakes Bakery Cafe. Shortly after having Wren, it became obvious that keeping all three store locations stocked was just too much work for me while getting used to being the mother of a small baby. I have since removed all my stock and will no longer be selling out of Tracycakes.

So, after all that… where can you get Twig Home vintage goodies?! So glad you asked! Let me tell you! I still have vintage items for sale at Cozy Home in Abbotsford. Go check it out! And… as of next week (July 3rd to be exact), Twig Home will have it’s very own little ‘booth’ in Creekside Country Home Decor! Besides Twig Home, there will be a few other great vintage vendors moving in as well! You really should go check it out next week! Above is a little sneak peek of a few things I’ll be bringing – including some of the treasures I brought back from Farm Chicks

Have a great long weekend and happy Canada Day! I will be busy working but I am hoping to get some relaxing in as well – I need it! See you on Tuesday!

Twig Home Update.

Good morning! Many of you have been asking about Twig Home, so I thought I would do a little Twig Home shop update to keep you all informed with the goings-on around here. I am currently not open at my studio in Chilliwack… however, I am still very willing to open it by appointment. So grab a couple girlfriends, some coffees and email me to set up a time to stop by! The reason for this change is quite simply, I am too busy! With a baby on the way, there are certain things I would love to get established within the next 2 months – the major one being – an Etsy store! Just think, pretty soon you will be able to shop Twig Home from your home.

In the meantime, you can find my items for purchase at any of the following locations!

If you have any questions about anything Twig Home related (or anything else for that matter), please, get in touch with me! I’d love to hear from you!

P.S. All of the above information (as well as addresses) can also be found on our Where to Find page.

Home Sweet Home.

Hello again! I am back in rainy B.C., rested from a very hot and relaxing time away in Phoenix, Arizona. We didn’t do much except for lay by the pool, eat good food, a little shopping here and there and a short hike. It’s been awhile since I’ve been on a trip with the sole purpose being to relax… and once this baby comes, I have a feeling it will be even longer until my next one! And I couldn’t be more excited for this next stage of life to begin. We really are blessed.

But as amazing as all holidays are, there is something about coming home to your own bed that just can’t be beat. Glorious. That was just one of the many things I was thankful for yesterday.

I’ve included several of my iphone photos of our trip… I actually remembered to bring my camera, but then proceeded to leave it in our hotel room every day. Oh well, better than nothing, right?

For those of you who have been asking, I will have Twig Home open this Thursday from 11am-2pm. Feel free to stop by! If you can’t make it during that time, please contact me, as I am always willing to open by appointment! Click here for the address.
