About Us

Sharon Ramsay Curtis & Bruce Curtis

After many years of being kept busy in the work-a-day world, the time came for us to retire from teaching and pursue some of our lifelong personal interests.

Sharon was delighted to be able to spend more time drawing and painting. Bruce enjoyed heading out to auctions, searching for interesting things. Many lovely pieces of glass have made their way into our shop from these expeditions.

At the same time we have been busy creating a lovely cottage garden on our two and one half acres between Colborne and Grafton. Our gardening style is eclectic and in places weeds flourish alongside of cherished perennials but the results, our visitors tell us, are both whimsical and beautiful.

These interests have led to the creation of the Artful Garden Gallery and Thomas House Collectibles. We welcome you to our regency cottage home where we have created a gallery in the former parlour. Come and walk our garden paths and view our work-in-progress garden. Browse through our gallery/gift shop where we feature Sharon’s watercolours of florals, local landscapes, pottery, and children’s books.

A selection from Bruce’s glassware and small collectables may provide the perfect gift for someone special to you.

All of your purchases will be wrapped and ribboned ready for giving

So come and join us for an afternoon’s shopping or just to share the garden, have a chat and enjoy the birds. We would love to meet you!

We are open by appointment or by chance. Please call ahead to ensure we are available.
