With over 40 items to choose from you are bound to find something you will love. We had the pawesome opportunity to review this Frenchie Set of Coasters and here’s what we thought:

  • Although these specific coasters are not within Dognatti‘s shop they can be requested to be made as a custom order
  • A similar example to the coasters is this GoldenDooble Labradooble Coaster Set
  • Leigha is open for custom orders, so if you see something you like but envision it differently just send Dognatti a convo and see what Leigha can do for you
  • We love the vivid colours of the coasters- teal and pink are our favourite colours. These coasters are the perfect pop of colour your office, coffee table or kitchen table
  • The coasters are made of high quality ceramic tiles and are 4″ X 4″ in dimensions
  • The front of the coaster is painted by hand and sealed from moisture
  • The back is made of felt to protect furniture from scratches
  • Other than pink and teal you have the following coasters to choose from:
    • Magenta, Orange, Cyan, Mustard Yellow, Teal, Lime Green, Lilac Purple, Blue
  • These coasters are easy to clean with a damp cloth and although we consider them durable they do need to be handled with care because, after all, they are made from ceramic
  • Shipping was super fast to Canada- it basically took 7 business days for it to arrive to us!

Review of RoseGoldFloralDesign’s Mason Jar

2016-12-29 03.03.08.jpg
We love this mason jar! RoseGoldFloralDesign specializes in mainly artificial floral arrangements that are perfect to use as decor or for special occasions like weddings/anniversaries. Christine, owner loves flowers but is allergic to most of them so started making artificial floral arrangements as a creative outlet and new hobby. Many of her inspiration from her designs come from many places, but overall, Christine is inspired by the unique, bright and beautiful! Christine and her sister ALWAYS wanted to become florists. Christine think that this was because her sister and her would always want Little Shop of Horrors wishing they could sing like Ellen Greene. But of course becoming a florist would be difficult because both Christine and her sister are allergic to flowers! So Christine thought she would then take the opportunity to present her floral arrangements via etsy.

We didn’t have the opportunity to review one of Christine’s floral arrangements but we did have the opportunity to review this rustic mason jar! Here’s what we thought:

  • This mason jar is handprinted and distressed, decorated with twine and an ivory flower that we think are perfect to use as home or wedding decor
  • This jar helps our paperclips stay organized on our desk. You can also find many other uses for it such as holding your business cards or other small items
  • This mason jar is available in green and blue but we especially love the pink!
  • Looking for a custom order of these mason jars? Christine will work with you to help you customize these mason jars to your liking!
  • 250ml in depth

Review of PrimPickinsCanada’s Home Decor Pieces

2017-01-14-05-23-342017-01-14-05-23-412017-01-14-05-23-37

One of my favourite shows to watch is Dragon’s Den. I’ve basically watched every episode to date, so I remember when small town girl Jamie-Lee Higginson appeared on the 10th Season of Dragons Den Episode 9. What I loved about Jamie-Lee’s pitch was that she was authentic and confident. I mean honestly, if you’ve ever watched the show you’d probably think twice about going on it. The Dragons can be difficult and often ask ALOT of questions, but Jamie-Lee was prepared to answer every question/concern they had and, as a result, she got a deal from one of the Dragons! So the fact that I had this opportunity to review these two home decor pieces from Jamie-Lee etsy shop: Prim Pickins Canada, is just so exciting! Jamie-Lee started out with owning her own retail furniture and decor store, but after having her second child she closed her store and decided she would create her own products. Selling her handmade creations led Jamie-Lee to create Prim Pickins Canada. As demand and awareness of Prim Pickins Canada grew, Jamie-Lee was continuously being contacted by retail store owners who wanted to sell her items and after making the jump into wholesale she has been able to create an incredible customer base which includes hundreds of stores across Canada. With the demand for her products Jamie-Lee decided she would team up with furniture manufacturing experts in the local Mennonite community. The combination of Jamie-Lee’s design talents and the expert craftsmanship of local Mennonites has resulted in quality, handmade unique products that Jamie-Lee is proud to offer her customers. I had the fantastic opportunity to review Prim Pickins Canada‘s Humble and Kind Rustic Decor Piece as well as the Rustic Key Rack Holder which are both items I absolutely needed in my life!

The Rustic Key Rack Holder was a much needed item since I do not have a table or place to set my keys when I come home from work and I hate having them lay on the kitchen countertop. So i’m excited to have my husband hang this piece up at the door so that we both can make a habit and place our keys in one place! This key rack holder is handcrafted out of sold wood and has a distressed finish to it making it have that rustic look. The key rack includes three square hand nails to hang your keys.

The Humble and Kind Rustic Decor Piece is a piece i’m still debating where I should hang up. Ideally I want it in my office but then, at the same time, I also want it in my bedroom, ugh the struggle is real! Anyways this piece is also handcrafted out of a solid wood sign and comes with a self leveling sawtooth hanger on the back. I love the quote and the beautiful design of this wood sign. It is a great reminder that everyone should consider thinking about every so often.

Prim Pickins Canada‘s etsy shop has over 232 items to choose from so you are bound to find something you will love whether it for the home or for a special event!  Custom listings are also available so be sure to send Prim Pickins Canada your project idea! AND if you live close to Melancthon, Ontario then be sure to use coupon code: localpickup to skip the shipping costs!

Review of NeedSomeCat’s Floral Soap Dispenser

2017-01-14-05-24-11@needsomecats is a small etsy shop located in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Owned by girl boss Irina, @needsomecats creates beautiful hand painted home decor which is made with love and inspiration. The pieces within @needsomecats‘ shop are unique and make great gifts! It is important to note that Saint Petersburg is one of the best cities for artists because of its art culture. Irina works from home and finds her inspiration in everyday experiences such as: her little song, nature and architecture. Irina opened up her etsy shop so that she can share her creations with the world around her to make your home cozier with her creations. I had the opportunity of reviewing @needsomecatsGlass Soap Dispenser in Light Purple. Here’s what I thought:

  • I really love this soap dispenser which I keep in my master bedroom washroom
  • I love the fact that it is handmade
  • This soap dispenser is a great addition to any washroom and/or kitchen
  • Unfortunately the current soap I am using is a dark green so you can’t really see the beautiful purple colour, but check out the listing to see the original colour
  • The dispenser has a beautiful hand painted floral design
  • The work and detail put into this soap dispenser is so impressive
  • Soap dispenser shipped quickly from Russia.
  • @needsomecats has many other items that’d i’d love to add to my home such as the Olive Oil Bottle, Wine Glasses as well as Coffee Mugs
