Barbara grew up in Toronto, Ontario with a passion for art, drawing, painting and all things creative. She had a thirst for knowledge and wanted to learn all she could. She loved to try new things, whether it be dancing, music, horseback riding or anything that looked fun and different. Barbara attributes her flair for the creative and decorating to her mother and her AuntFred. Her mom was always taking a space and making it beautiful, something Barbara wanted to do for herself. Barbara was fascinated that her mother could take fabric and create pillows and curtains from what seemed like practically nothing! She would watch when her Aunt Fred came to visit, moving furniture and objects around, making the room look like a new space. Barbara showcased her own love of decorating when she and her husband bought their first home and continues to change and create in her own space to this very day. Following in her mother & aunt’s footsteps.
For a time, while living in North Carolina, Barbara gained exposure to different furniture companies and expanded her decorating horizons and ideas. She found her dream area in HighPoint, North Carolina which is known as the furniture capital of the world.
Mother to 6 children, and never a dull moment in the Wright household, humour is what bonds the family together. To this day, you need a good sense of humour to keep up with the Wrights! If you’re active or into fitness at all, you may have seenBarbara out in the Ocean Park community. From yoga to bootcamps to weightlifting – and yes, even running up Oxford Street in White Rock, if there is an exercise experience to be had Barb is there… 8 days a week! Excited to now be on this next journey with her daughter Jacqueline… passion for life is what propels Barbara forward!
Jacqueline grew up in Toronto, Ontario and moved to BC with her family after living in North Carolina. Jackie has always had a passion for animals and volunteered wherever she could, working with foster cats & kittens, dogs, and birds. In 1999 she was a part of the Emergency Animal Response Team and a first responder during hurricaneFloyd. She rescued many animals and was even brought to the location site in a Black Hawk helicopter, courtesy of the United States Army. In its infancy,Jackie sat on the board of directors for local non-profit Kindred Farm(formerly known as SALI’s Farm) and helped with fundraising and organizing of events. She is a former veterinary assistant and decided to get into the more creative aspect of the animal industry by learning to groom dogs. For many years Jackie enjoyed working with the dogs of South Surrey and is now looking forward to helping their human counterparts create a “paws-itive” space within their home.
At home, Jacqueline is surrounded by her extended “fur family” on their South Langley farm. She has 3 Great Danes, a Lykoi ( werewolf cat), horses, pigs, chickens, and an alpaca! When she’s not working, you can find her horseback riding, at a dog show, hosting a game night or spending time with friends and family.
Edgar Allen Crow
Edgar was rescued by the SPCA and taken to a local Veterinary Hospital. We have a friend who works there, and she asked us if we would be Edgar's guardians. Of course we said yes! He was 4 days old when we got him and very naked and small. Those who have watched Edgar's journey from the beginning know how quickly he grew! Within 4 weeks Edgar left the nest and took his first flight just a few days later. He will be released and we hope he will visit us often <3
