▪️ One of our readers tipped us off about Lonely Nights Lights, who makes gorgeous resin night light shades. These intricate shades are available in a range of designs, from abstract to tiny landscape photographs. $62 each.

▪️ These upcycled vintage jewellery boxes will complement myriad decorating styles but will look especially great in a little girl’s bedroom. From $52.

▪️ Authentically Amy Designs offers wood blanket ladders, shelving, and other wood decor items for the contemporary home or cottage. Blanket ladders start at $80.

▪️ Santa Garden Gnome 4 inch beeswax candle is a spot of contemporary kitsch, in non-toxic coloured beeswax. Made by The Wax Studio in Ottawa. $19.00. 

▪️ Diane Sullivan is a Carp-based potter whose work ranges from bee-adorned bowls ($11) and mugs ($42) to decorative urns (from $240) and animal sculptures (from $60). Right now she is offering free delivery to within Ottawa and the suburbs.

▪️ Here’s a Christmas heirloom in the making: A wooden Christmas Eve box personalized with your child’s name, ready to be filled with gifts. $25 each but they’re going fast. Pick up in Orleans. By MadKat Signs & Designs.

▪️ All Your Buddies Studio creates “Bookshelf Prints,” an original artwork of the spines of your favourite books. Just send the author and titles, and your desired background colour. $45. Also available: stickers, greeting cards, and custom house prints.

▪️ A stained glass window or decorative item not only dresses a window or door, but it casts vivid tones of light into a room. At Stained Glass Stuff on Richmond Road you can purchase ready made pieces or enrol in a stained glass or fused glass course. Either of which, by the way, would make a thoughtful gift.

▪️ Ordinary Dutch Studio makes decor and Christmas decorating items with a Nordic feel. The felt star and wooden bead garland will dress the mantel in a subtle grey, black, or white ($16.65), while the personalized stockings constructed from reclaimed wooden blankets ($49.50) are available in a range of subtle colours.
