Friday Feature - Shade Tree Living


Shade Tree Living is all about living a simple, natural life! Providing home and body products that promote a healthy natural lifestyle.

In our body products we utilize only natural ingredients, the finest oils and butters and additives straight from nature. All products are made in small, quality controlled batches to ensure you get the freshest product available.

Our first choice, and priority, is to recycle and reuse when possible in all of our packaging and material use. Providing products that promote a sustainable future for us, our children and the many that come after. 


Five years ago when my first son was just a baby, I starting learning more and more about the harmful chemicals and detergents in our everyday products. I set out to find a better way and found that I loved making natural products for our family. Soon, I started sharing those products with my extended family and friends and found they loved them too!

I love creating natural, healthy products that are both beautiful and functional for an everyday consumer.

Motivational Monday - Holiday Shopping

Just want to give you a reminder that getting fabric printed for my pillow covers is not something that happens overnight!  I can rush orders last minute, but that generally runs at an additional $80 fee!  Get your holiday pillow covers (whether for your home decor or Christmas gift giving) ordered ASAP!

Feature Friday - Cherry Tree Gallery

Cherry Tree Gallery is a hand-crafted collection of rustic wooden art decor and home decor accessories for any home. Specializing in kids measuring rulers, giant scrabble tiles, wooden picture frames, hooks and decor.

I, Shanna Daley, was born with creating in my blood. As a kid I loved to draw and admired my father for his artistic and creative skills. I've always loved the creative process and coming up with "new" ideas so it was a natural step for me to eventually have my own shop of handmade rustic designs that I love.

 I am inspired by so many things including: colours, life, textures, and combining my love for rustic earthy style with a contemporary look. All my pieces are truly inspired by "you."

We all have a unique inspiration inside us craving to come out and be lived out loud

I am so grateful to do what I love so thank you so much!
