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."

Spooky Snacks for My Little Monsters

Although my little ones love a good little chocolate chip cookie, I just can't bring myself to make them every single week. I am constantly on the lookout for something sweet, tasty - and NEW- to serve them.

A recent trip to the bulk food store inspired me to make this:
Oh yeah! Look at all of that sweet delight! And the kids - they died and went to heaven! Can you see all the stuff I added?

Popcorn (cooled first so that it didn't melt the chocolate elements)
Pretzel twists
Multigrain Cheerios
Candy Corn
Reese's Pieces
Mallow Pumpkins
Ghost-shaped marshmallows
Chocolate chips
Mini gingerbread cookies
&kull-shaped hard candies


I had to limit the 3 kids (and my husband!) to two small bowls at a time so that the mix lasted more than a day or two! My oldest is already asking when I'll make it again. Maybe next week. Maybe not until December when I can switch fall goodies to Christmas ones. Ooh! I am already excited!!
