Learn to Make Your Own Felted Soap!

If you love cuddly, furry alpacas and the amazing things they provide for us, you'll want to sign up for the workshop presented by Forget-Me-Not Alpacas and the Mount Albert Knitting Guild in which you'll get to make your own felted soap out of alpaca fleece. The event will take place on Saturday, June 24th at 11am at the East Gwillumbury Public Library. Bring your own soap to create something truly unique! It costs $5 to register, so make sure to do that fast!

Felted soap is an uncommon thing to see in stores, but is a great way to cleanse. The felted fleece acts as a soft loofah to gently exfoliate while the fibres are naturally antibacterial, which helps keep away odour bacteria even after you step out of the shower. Felted soap is usually local and always cruelty free; the proceeds go towards feeding, cleaning and otherwise keeping those adorable alpacas happy and healthy. For more information about the alpacas from Forget-Me-Not Alpacas, visit their website here.

Making the Most Out of Laminate Flooring

Laminate is an affordable alternative to hardwood, but that doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice the integrity of the room to reflect that. Laminate can look as nice as hardwood if you frame the room around it.
 

To learn more about different flooring, contact Karey today!

A dark laminate can feel mature and modern paired with stainless steel accents like light shades or furniture. A light laminate can emulate the feel of an airy Scandinavian abode when paired with white or cream walls and bright furniture. Look at the use of laminate in 29 Jamieson Drive, Rosemont and see how bright a room can be through the use of light laminate and off-white walls.

How to find a Home with Character at a Reasonable Price!

For those who appreciate the beauty of classic architecture, finding an affordable home in Toronto can be exceptionally difficult. These coveted properties are often only available to a select few, and even at their high prices, they generally sell very quickly! This has inspired home buyers to expand their search to surrounding areas, where Victorian homes are equally impressive and command a more reasonable price.

If you're in the market for a charming home with classic details offering incredible value, look no further than 172 Queen Street West in Mount Forest! A rare gem in a convenient location, this unique property has everything you've been searching for.

This remarkable 3 bedroom century home is the perfect mix of historic charm and modern design! Lovely English gardens adorn the front of the residence, guiding you to the covered front porch. The adjoining concrete driveway leads to the board and batten garage/workshop with a wood-burning heater, passing another covered porch along the way.

Upon entering this delightful Mount Forest home, you will immediately take notice of the classic finishes throughout, including the original hardwood floors, crown moulding, and airy 12’ ceilings. The spacious living room is bright and welcoming, featuring large windows and a stylish modern light fixture. Just across the hall, the main floor laundry area flows into the gorgeous chef’s kitchen, equipped with ample cabinet and counter space, pot lighting, built-in appliances, and a large centre island/breakfast bar. The sunny dining area is perfect for enjoying home cooked meals, or step through the double doors to your private yard. Landscaped with rhubarb and raspberry bushes, Maple and Oak trees, and perennial flowers, this mature garden requires little care to maintain its beauty. This lush outdoor space also has two seating areas, one on the stone patio with a BBQ area, and the other on the deck with plenty of room for a gazebo or pergola.

Also on the main level are two sizable bedrooms, as well as a third room that could be used as another bedroom, den, or anything else you desire!
