Whether you're feeling the squeeze this year or want to be a little more extravagant, this list has you covered! Today I'm sharing a curated list to help you out 😄 Have fun!

I’m a little obsessed with finding the perfect gift, collecting ideas for birthdays and holidays year round taking note of items that are beautiful, useful, and a little different. I picked picked out a couple of favourite paintings and decided to compile and share a curated list of items that may be helpful for you. ‘Oceans Rise’ was painted when I was living in the city in Toronto, longing for warm summer days on the beach, when the sunlight glitters on the surface of the water late into the evening. Soothing shades of blues and pastels set the tone for a relaxing bedroom space, complete with a bathrobe to unwind in.

The inspiration for ‘Mornings Like These’ came one morning when I went out for an early morning walk, arriving at the boardwalk of a lake just as the sun was rising over the horizon, hence the hint of warm light painted at the base of the clouds. Not a soul could be seen, save for a few seagulls awake at that hour. I thought this would go well in a reading nook, along with a beautiful candle and a cup of tea.
