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."

A Little Autumn Nesting Around Our Home

Autumn arrived today at 5:30 in the morning. It was nice to not be awake then. The last 5 days I HAVE been awake then, re-tucking my toddler back into his bed because he kicks off his blankets as he sleeps and gets too cold to sleep. Another sign of Fall, I guess.

I love Autumn. I love the colours, the coziness of sweaters, the return of flannel blankets, apple cider and the pumpkin patch.

In the last week, I've added some "Autumn" to our home - mostly in the living and dining rooms.

Colourful corn, cones from a nearby pine tree and, of course, some colourful foliage.




Do you like my runner? I made it. Out of burlap from the Home Depot. Classy, eh? Yet oh so pretty. I love the rustic texture it gives.



I added a ruffle near the edge, to finish it off. I made the ruffle out of a cream coloured sheet I bought at the Goodwill Store.



These are some of my hubby's favourite books. I pulled them off of the shelf and added them to the top of this little cabinet. This is where he unloads his pockets everyday when he gets home, so I thought maybe they would make him happy here.



How about the dining table? Perfect place for a little tablescape.



I stitched this sign last Thanksgiving and added it to a frame that I decoupaged with a mix of Autumn scrapbooking papers. The acorns are from Pier 1. I bought them the year we were married - 2002!
The pumpkin tree was new last year too. Each pumpkin is a votive holder. I have been lighting them every evening this past week. So pretty!
I bought these artificial Chinese lanterns at a nearby farm store. I just love them! so delicate!
Thanks for looking!


Happy first day of Autumn to you!
