A Few Questions With...Stansberry Design

A Few Questions With...Stansberry Design

Today I'm featuring another one of my Instagram favorites, Natalie of Stansberry Design. I am in love with her ponchos, scarves, and wraps; I believe they are timeless pieces that belong in every woman's wardrobe. Today, Natalie shares her story and introduces us to her new home collection (I'm so excited about this!). Does the name Stansberry Design have any special meaning? Why yes it does! I named my business "Stansberry" in honor of my mother Doris Stansberry and Grandmother Edna Stansberry. Both women were such a great inspiration to me. My grandmother was a master seamstress who sewed nearly all...

Are you in need of a pick me up? Can't share my enthusiasm for spring yet? You need a quick pick me up to...

Ferris and CharChar

If you are anything like me, you can get lost in Instagram; it's my favorite place to see cats being crazy, read inspirational quotes and find new businesses to support! One of my favorites is Ferris and CharChar, a small cosmetics company based in Ontario. I found them one day while on the page of one of my favorite IG accounts, Goats of Anarchy. Ferris and CharChar donate 10% of all sales to various animal rescues and even names products after the animals they help raise money for; what's not to love? I reached out to Amber, the owner of Ferris and CharChar to...
