Frequently asked questions:

Are your items dishwasher safe?

Yes, pottery can go in the dishwasher. Please keep in mind that like all other dishes, pottery may chip and break. Handle carefully at all times. 

Is my pottery oven safe?

Yes, the heat of an oven or microwave is insignificant in comparison to a kiln. Never place a pottery dish on top of a hot surface. Pottery must be heat equally from all sides. 

Can I put my mug in the microwave?

The pottery with gold accents must not be microwaved, but anything else can be placed in the microwave.

Do your items ship without breaking?

Yes. We package our items with great care. If an item arrives broken, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Send a picture please. I will either refund or replace the item.

I grew up in rural Manitoba with the wind in my hair, surrounded by bird song, and happy times. Being out in nature was and still is a time of joy: endless hikes, times spent around the campfire with family and friends, puttering in my new garden space, worshipping our Great Creator with church family on Sunday, paddling down the river, crunching across the snow in my snowshoes, gliding down hills in skis, soaking up the heat of my fireplace, and much much more.

Bouquets + Arrangements

Our floral fridge is stocked with flowers year round.

As child, I would walk around my mother's garden and pick flowers, much to her dismay. I loved the look of a bouquet on the table, and she loved the look of the flowers in the garden. Haha. Now we both get the best of both worlds.
