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."

Apple Picking with Nana

One lovely day in September, Afton asked if Nana could come over and teach her how to make apple pies from scratch using apples picked fresh from the trees. Not one to turn down an opportunity to come visit her grandkids - Nana was there the next day!!

We visited an apple farm not 5 minutes down the road from here and we picked apples in 19 degree weather - it felt like summer!

We sampled each type of apple and came home with a 20-lb basket that contained PERFECT apple specimens in a variety of colours.

Aunt Stephanie also dropped by on her way through to Ottawa - but left before the pie-baking began!
Nana and Afton spent 2 hours turning lard and flour into 10 pie crusts then filled several with a delicious mixture of apples, cinnamon and sugar. The first pie out of the oven was amazing - obviously baked with love!
