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."

Little Baking Vignette

Aimee Weaver recently added this to her kitchen:

I love the jars of flour and sugar and the vase of baking utensils.  

And I had pinned this recently, too.  Gotta love the bow on the tall jar and the collection of baking cups.  Pretty!
I was in search of a change in my kitchen area, so while these baked.......


...... my youngest son helped dump about 1500 of these into a recently thrifted jar.  
Look at all of those pretty colours!!
Of course - I tied a pretty bow on and poured some of my all-purpose flour into another shorter jar.  The mini-muffin pan was a yard sale find (but used often) and fit perfectly into the little baking vignette in my mind.  
Another baking necessity - chocolate chips! I go through tons of these.  I wonder how long these will remain in the be-ribboned canning jar??

Hmm...something is not right......There we go- more height needed in the baking tin department.  Up on a couple of clear lids and everything seems more balanced.  
And the final touch -  some wint'ry cookie cutters.  

Done and done.  The perfect vignette for the top of the  cabinet that  holds my selection of baking books, cookie cutters and sprinkle collection!!
