Everyone seems to love our custom made cushions at Penney & Company and we’ve got a fresh crop in for you!
Each one is locally made with fabrics we source from far and wide with unique patterns and designs. They all have 20″ feather inserts and zippers so you can clean the covers and you can purchase just the cover if you have your own inserts.
Have fun mixing and matching!

Check out the latest assortment of summer-bbq-ready dishes and linens available at Penney & Co and Pineapple Street.
Ticking stripes are a summer staple and this cheerful red is just plain happy! We’ve got runners, placemats and napkins too. The red really works well with vintage ceramics and even some Cath Kidston mugs that feel like they’re from an old diner.
This is happy decorating people!

We’re all feeling pretty proud around here since Canadian House & Home’s feature on our new shops Sweet Violet and Pineapple Street in this month’s issue!
It’s a great article with some lovely photographs that just make you wanna check out the exciting transformations happening in Downtown Whitby! We’ve already had calls from across the country for our hot air balloons, bedding and more!
Thank you to House & Home, and my good friends Kimberly Brown (editor) and Michael Graydon (photographer). You’re the best!

Here’s not one but two pair of lovely little painted nightstands NEW at Sweet Violet!
Both are chalk painted and have a softly distressed patina. One pair is in a soft french grey with pine tops and brass pulls. The other are a warm white with jadeite knobs – lots of storage and homespun style to boot!
Check them out at Sweet Violet today!

Thank you so much to Laurel Munro from Whitby’s Mint Floral Co for leading a wonderful class for us at Pineapple Street this morning!
We learned the insider secrets for how to create a loose and natural arrangement and got the confidence to follow our instincts when building an arrangement that is uniquely beautiful.
Laurel provided the most beautiful and unusual flowers for the class (sweet peas, clematis, myrtle and garden roses) and the best part was we got to keep what we’d arranged! Bonus!
Pineapple Street never smelled – or looked – so good!
Thank you Laurel!

Just wrapped up another fun Marilyn Denis Show appearance yesterday!
It was all about adding today’s trends to your existing dining room. Even if you have basic furniture you can add tons of style (like trendy fashion-forward bright colours and rustic industrial elements) to your space!
Watch the clip here.

Thanks to each and every one of you who dropped by our Shop Local Shop Late event last week. It was HUGE success and I was totally overwhelmed with how many people came out and experienced our downtown!
So many people expressed hopes that these sorts of things will happen more often in Whitby and I have to say I agree! We’ll keep you posted!
