    I don’t know about you but I’m super excited about the first ever Pineapple Street Flower Arranging Class coming up THIS SATURDAY morning at 10am!

    We’ll be led by the lovely and talented Laurel Munro of Whitby’s Mint Floral Co. as she teaches us how to create those effortless-looking bouquets and arrangements!  Can’t wait to be surrounded by all of those fresh flowers for the morning!

  2. Our Stores In Chatelaine!

    June 25, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Have you picked up your copy of Chatelaine lately?

    Be sure to check out their funny and summery story called Cottage Chic.  It features a truck load of items from Penney & Co, Sweet Violet and Pineapple Street!  And I’m not kidding – they came with a truck!

    It also features some items from Downtown Whitby boutique, Rural Reclaiming!  So proud.

    Whitby-20140624-00634Those are some gorgeous Penney & Company cushions and throws I see on that daybed (the moroccan rug too!).  And I’d know that Penney & Co wicker chair anywhere (looks great piled high with quilts from Sweet Violet).  They’ve even set the table with Pineapple Street’s Royal Doulton dishes, woven placemats and rustic blue bottle!

    Whitby-20140624-00635

     

    I’m not always a huge fan of window mirrors but this rustic example from Penney & Co makes the grade (and check out our old watering cans and flower pots!).  Striped rugs in many colours are a hallmark of ours and this grey number looks great with the raw wood walls and our little french market tote.

    So thrilling to show all of Canada what great shopping there is in little old Whitby!

    Exciting news everyone!

    June 17, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Have you heard of Berry Hill in Oshawa?

    I’d been meaning to stop by many times as it’s charming facade really spoke to me!  It’s an adorable cafe and catering company in the heart of old Oshawa (on King Street across from the Scotiabank and municipal buildings).

    I met the owner at her booth at the Oshawa Peony Festival on the weekend and got chatting.  Sarah is a wonderful and warm person and so on Monday Violet and I took a stroll to Berry Hill!
