I’m constantly on the lookout for new items to share with you at Sweet Violet. Cozy, cuddly and nostalgic items that are Violet-approved and an antedote to the plastic that seems to invade your house when you have a baby. Here are a few of the NEW goodies we’ve just unpacked and just in time for Christmas! These make perfect gifts and will be treasured for years to come.

Well we had a wonderful day in Historic Downtown Whitby today!
It’s looking like a white Christmas so far and with the twinkle of lights in the shop windows and the sounds of carollers and a Salvation Army Band in the air, it was about as charming as it gets! The old streets of Whitby were full of life as people bustled in and out of shops picking up last minute gifts and kids were greeted by Santa and Mrs. Claus. Yes it was indeed A Classic Christmas In Old Whitby! I hope it becomes a tradition don’t you?
And if you missed out this year, you’ve got to come next time around and be a part of the community!

Today I was challenged with creating a cozy bed for extra guests over the holidays using an air mattress!
The Marilyn Denis Show was all about being snowed in today and the entire audience, guests and Marilyn herself were outfitted in adult onesie pyjamas! It was all about cozy creature comforts and a fun show all around.
If you missed it, here’s a clip!

I don’t know if you braved any of the Black Friday sales this weekend but I did NOT! I mean is it really worth being trampled for an extra 25% off or spending your Christmas season in some insane line? Well maybe it is for some but I just couldn’t stomach it. Here’s what I’ve been up to instead…
Primping and prepping Penney & Co with cozy cold season decorating items…
Also, creating winter green urns with snippets harvested in the countryside north of Poshawa (Oshawa for those of you who aren’t familiar)…Really spruces things up don’t ya think?
We’ve also started decorating our Christmas tree at home (my NINTH this season already). I already dropped and broke one precious vintage ornament – c’est la vie! More egg nog please!
