SALT & PEPPER designs by Christine
Since I first met her I associated Christine with music. A trained soprano, a choir and choral group conductor, a piano instructor. It is what she loved to do and wanted to do. She also has demonstrated an appreciation for textures, colours and designs. She has used knitting and seamstress skills to clothe her children as well as herself. Christine made Cari’s wedding dress as well as the bridesmaids’ dresses. She has often made alterations for people as an act of kindness. She has never regarded her work as exceptional. Others of us believe she is good at what she does. She has also not regarded herself as particularly creative but she is and she proved it again recently when she rose to a challenge. She selected fabrics and created several fancy aprons for a unique shop in Fort Langley known as Little White House.
Featured in Country Living, Canadian House and Home and Style at Home magazines, the Little White House is a delightful store, offering apparel, furnishings, jewellery, linens, lighting, gifts, vintage treasures, home décor and now, Christine’s aprons.
Christine’s aprons are presented under her enterprise name Salt and Pepper (designs by Christine). The name corresponds with the current colour themes of her fabrics and the features within the Little White House. On the reverse side of the Salt and Pepper label cards is a recipe for Crème Brulee. This modest initiative is a merchandising experiment now. Who knows what might become of it.
You can visit The Little White House at the Fort on 9090 Glover Road, Fort Langley, B.C., The Telephone no. is 604 888 8386
