cottage update & fun upcoming event...


Spring 
is in the air!!
Can you feel it?
We're certainly seeing it at 
el&em!
Lots of new Spring decor, upcycles & handmade treasures adorn the cottage,
 (and we have much more on the way!!)




We've also been busy, busy bees on the outside! 
Our poor little cottage has been looking kind of sad for quite awhile 
so there is much to do. 
We really are having so much fun giving her 
some much needed love and TLC 
and it's really wonderful to hear all the rave reviews from our neighbors too. 
Everyone is just thrilled to see the cottage being transformed & cared for once again!  

a little pruning & painting is a must!!



Although we have officially opened the doors for business, 
we are giving ourselves a couple more weeks to finish 
some major projects & get a bit more spruced up 
and then we'll be throwing a proper shindig to celebrate our move!

Grand Re-Opening 
Anniversary Celebration
Saturday April 16th
12:00pm-5:00pm
Join us for our official relocation/re-opening ceremonies!
We've been hard at work reinventing 
our sweet & charming vintage cottage 
and we'd love to have you join us 
as we share in a special day of celebrating!!

We'll be unveiling our renovated carriage house studio 
and our new yard & garden features. 
We'll also have shop specials, giveaways, 
games and some fun surprises too.
We do hope you can join us!!
