Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Do you know what it is?
It is a new concept in vegetable gardening that we are going to try out. Basically, we have to plant vegetables in each square foot depending on the size each type of veggie will reach upon maturation. For instance, a pepper plant needs a whole square foot and 16 carrots can grow in one square foot. We are using "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew as a guidebook. He claims that his technique will give us a greater yield in less space. Kevin and I are very excited to see what we will produce over this growing season.

At the end of the day, Camden did this:
