Things you'll love a Lotte
The shop is looking rather abundant these days with delicious soaps, and vases and plants too. I am especially excited about my latest acquisition. I have been shopping at Inabstracto for years, and just yesterday while purchasing a shade for my vintage Lotte lamp, Kate (the owner) and I got talking. We both have a connection to the acting world. I'm an actress and she was an agent for many years. Clearly, we both agree that Lotte lamps rock. I went on about loving the vintage lamps so much and my intention to buy more from her and she was like, "take it, put it in your shop," I thought I was being punked! These lamps aren't cheap! It looks so pretty in the store and I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity Kate's given me here! The lamp will be for sale on consignment at the shop and if you need more I recommend a visit to Inabstracto. Kate has one of the biggest vintage collections of Lotte lamps in Toronto. And not only is she is super cool lady but her dog, Mildred, is definitely in the running to becoming Coriander Girl's next top doodle.
Begonias are my absolute favorite plant. These Rex Begonias, in particular, are the showboats of the begonia world and are a type of rhizomatous begonia that are grown for their multicolored leaves. I fell in love the moment I first met one.
Have a lovely 'hump day' everyone.
