havenliving Lovin' me some hand crafted leather work from @marketcanvasleather in Tofino. These little tassels work great to either accessorize or help keep those pesky keys from getting lost amidst your purse. Van Isle made! #shoplocal #handmadeincanada #madeinbc #vancouverislandmade #tofino #portalberni 12h

havenliving As a self professed paper addict, am I the only one who missed the art of the hand written letter? These little boxed cards are a great way to change that! #madeincanada #cartolina 4d

havenliving Oh Baby! This is a great time of year to add Soothing Spray to your outdoor summer kit. I use it on everything from bug bites, sunburns and skin rashes and cuts & scrapes. It's also amazing on the nastiest of diaper rashes. #madeinbc #handmadeincanada #sproutbabyskincare #pureingredients #pureessentialoils 5d

havenliving Looking for a perfect Canadian inspired gift? These new postcards from Cartolina's Old Time Canadiana line are the best fit ever! Throw in a @brand_iron leather wrapped candle, and you've got it made. Made in BC that is;) #beartracksandlumberjacks #wearecanadian #madeincanada #madeinbc #wedontliveinigloos 5d

havenliving Nothing has been better than seeking out amazing artisans for the shop! I get so excited when I find Port Alberni raised gals kickin' butt with their brand! We now carry locally raised @katmadejewelry in the shop. The perfect compliment for our other "hand made in BC" brands. #portalberni #girlbosses #lovelocal #shoplocal #supportlocal 6d

havenliving I have been working like a mad woman on the paint bar over the last week. I am so excited about the new sizing of Ce Ce Caldwell Paints at Haven Living, because it means so many more possibilities! 4oz was often not enough, and 32oz was sometimes too much! Now you can begin to build a paint bar at your own home, bringing color to new heights! Whether it's a huge piece your painting, or an accent decor item, I now have sizes that will fit any project! I want to see your projects!(Post your pics with hashtag #havendiy.) All 4oz sizes are discontinued and on for $5!! @cececaldwellspaints #paintedfurniture #paintworkshops #chalkandclaypaint #cececaldwellpaints 2w

havenliving Confession? Growing up, I always wished I was American. I had a hard time aligning my creative vision for my life with being Canadian. As my brand has grown and I have began to see the incredible growth in the "made in Canada" concept, I'm so inspired by the brands coming out of BC and Canada! #dontunderestimateus #wegotgametoo #beartracksandlumberjacks #pffft #thenewcool #madeincanada #handmadeincanada #madeinbc #vancouverislandmade #portalberni @elkandelmhome @brand_iron @vancouvercandleco @happyspritz 2w

havenliving I love how this little nautical inspired box turned out. Ce Ce Caldwell Newport Navy and Silverhillsfog Fog, heavily distressed. Finished with an image transfer using DIY Paints Liquid Patina! The little rope knob finished her perfectly. $65 #cececaldwellpaints #diypaints #paintedfurniture #diy #happycampersdiy 2w
