New Shop: Periwinkle Flowers

One of our newest shop listings in the lovely Periwinkle Flowers, now in their new location in Toronto's Mount Pleasant Village. Owner Jessica McEwen mixes seasonal locally grown blooms with imported flowers such as romantic old fashioned garden roses to create happy designs. Using unexpected containers such as vintage tea cups or wrapping bouquets with tea towels, these gifts are designed to make people smile.
These whimsical fresh flower arrangements that are sent across the GTA are the mainstay of the shop’s business, along with a new focus on offering made-in-Canada giftware as well.  “Clearing out for the shop’s move made me realize how much “stuff” we all accumulate- I want  to be sure that things I send out with my flowers are as meaningful a part of the gift as the blooms”, says Jessica.
 
With an eye for the patterns, prints and fragrances that make her happy, Ms.McEwen now carries scrubs, washes and lotions from Toronto’s “Lovefresh,” screen printed tea towels and cushions by Toronto artist Avril Loreti as well as fragrant soy candles by Montreal’s “Carriage44”.   Soon to arrive are a series of concrete mini planters and glass vases that are locally made.
This is the lovely Jessica!! See how she wrapped her beautiful flower arrangements
in one of my Palace Tea Towels! Such a fun creative touch and a thoughtful gift!

P.S. Did you notice that wicked Tetris one?  Oh my!

The last couple of weeks have been filled with photo shoots during the day and many photoshop sessions driving me way off into the night.

Here are a few fun pics of some of the new goodies coming soon to the shop!
Come on over to Instagram to see daily peeks into my studio!
