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."

An Album for My Dad

Last spring I made a mini-album for my father featuring pictures of him and my 3 children. My mom said he looked at it constantly, smiling and carefully fingering the pictures. After seeing how ratty it was getting, I decided I'd better make another one for him to enjoy.

Unfortunately, my father was able to enjoy it for only a few short weeks before passing away.

I am glad he could flip through it several times, enjoying the collection of pictures, spanning from infant photos of Bryn and Poppa, to the most recent photo of him and all 3 of the kids. Even for just a little while.....
The week following his passing, we took the book to the funeral home so that the 100's of people who visited, to show their love for my father, could flip through it and enjoy it too.

My mother now keeps this book close-by-- cherished memories of my father.

And the little book that I made LAST spring? The one that was wrinkly, torn and covered in Poppa's fingerprints? Where is it now?

Poppa took it to heaven with him, "cause he liked it a lot!" (Afton, age 5)
