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."

Pink and Sparkly Christmas Wreath

I heading towards a different looking Christmas this year, in terms of colour in my decor. Lately I have really fallen in love with the use of pink, red and turquoise that I have seen in magazines and on many of the blogs I visit.
So, when my little lady requested a pink wreath for her bedroom door, I immediately went for pink. After all, she has a lovely little pink Christmas tree right inside her room. Wouldn't they look lovely together?

On a recent trip to Dollarama I found this simple white and silver wreath. I shopped my house and found all the other materials for my wreath - silver ribbon, a silver snowflake, white branches and some plastic icicles.

And some crocheted roses - of course! I've made a ton lately, and now I am putting a few more to use.
Then, with my trusty glue gun in hand, I began adding the sparkle - first the twigs and snowflake ornament.
A lovely silver bow:
And seven pink roses, crocheted in a variety of blush shades, including one with a thread of silver running through. To amp up the girly factor, I glued large pearl beads into their centres.
So what do you think? Me? I LOVE IT! It turned out even better than I hoped.
It glistens.
I kind of wish I could display it in a more "public" place in my home so more people could enjoy it. But I guess it can our family's pretty little pink secret at the end of the upstairs hallway.
Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
