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."

Let the Easter Decorating Begin!!

My oldest son needed a filling at the dentist today, so I HAD to take the whole day of of work.  Bummer.  It's not my fault that the whole event at the dentist lasted 25 minutes!  

Anywhooo.....I used some of my extra time to get started on my Easter decor in preparation for having my family, and my husband's family, on Easter Sunday.  

Recently I picked up this pink bunny basket at a thrift store for $1.00. 
I also grabbed these wooden tulips (probably from the '80's) for $3.00.  Though they were peach and mint green, I saw some potential!!

See?? There you go.  Already looking better with some fresh, vibrant paint.  
And the bunny basket - he got a makeover too. I hit him with a can of aqua spray paint!!

I hid some floral foam in the basket and covered it with yellow Easter Basket grass.


And in went my freshly painted tulips.  I added some fake green ivy as filler and to add some lush-ness to the basket.  Last, but not least, in went my little frog on a stick.  I felt he finished things off quite nicely!!

Up on the door it went.    Of course, when my youngest son arrived home after school today he said, "Look, Mom! the Easter Bunny has been here already!" Too cute.
