New! Teacup Candles


A hand-poured, natural beeswax candle in a vintage teacup? Take my money! No, wait.... that's not how this works...

But, seriously, these are pretty sweet. The beeswax is from happy prairie bees and is unrefined, so it still has its distinctive fragrance and golden colour. The teacups are Royal Wessex by Swinnertons (sounds very British), date back to the 50s, and feature a lovely aqua/grey floral and 22 karat gold trim. Together they make a lovely gift... but I won't tell if you decide to treat yourself. 

Teacup Candles - $16 each

Oh, honey!


I am so, so, so excited about this stuff! 

My lipbalm is naturally moisturizing and contains only four ingredients  - natural beeswax and raw honey from Canadian prairie bees, organic canola oil, and vitamin e. 

That's it. No colour. No flavour. No sparkles. (But don't let me stop you from using it under your brightest, sparkliest lipgloss!)

Oh, honey! Lipbalm - $4 each

They're back...

...with a fresh new look!

A recent custom order* gave me the opportunity to refresh the packaging for my Domino Pins. I think the new cards are awesome...what do you think?


Besides the snazzy new backer cards, I have also started using a new, extra-durable satin varnish for the pins. It's a beautiful, smooth finish and really makes the colours POP.

Of course, I decided to re-launch the pins with the oh-so-zen phrase "Namaste". I'll be working on expanding the yoga series over the summer, and bringing back some old faves (Sofa King, anyone?)

The new, improved pins are (still) only $6 each, plus postage. (Winnipeggers, please contact me for pick-up and delivery info.)

Custom orders are available with a minimum order of three pins. Contact me for details!


*more about this in an upcoming post!
