My Ottawa Citizen interview all about Cottage Decorating

So excited to share my interview with Lisa Evans for the Ottawa Citizen.   A few weeks ago, Lisa (great name, btw) asked me for some tips on cottage decorating and how to incorporate local art and nature into your cottage decor.  Today, this appeared in the Ottawa Citizen online.  I’ll let you know when it’s set to publish in the Citizen.

  4. Hello Lisa,

    I was so surprised to see this as I typed my name into Google as I do once in a while. I want to say Thank you so much for this publicity! My mom has been keeping the home sections of the Ottawa Citizen for me for years 🙂 She’ll be thrilled with this. I am very thankful that you mentioned my work. I want to offer you a porcelain cup if you like as a token of gratitude.

        hi there do you know the year of the trunk I just got one today the same I think and it was my great grampie’s just trying to figure out the date of it

        • Hi April, How fun! I was told the trunk dates to 1900-1901. My grandfather used it to travel from England to India. I’d love to see a pic of yours.
