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."

"BLOOM" Where You are Planted...

Recently I came across this image on Pinterest.  It was posted on the Pink Postcard blog but I was unable to find who created the vignette seen in the picture.  

What caught my eye were the large signs  with the wooden letters - Grow and  Bloom.  

I had no idea where this craft/vintage sale was, so there was no chance of me purchasing a sign, so I did the next best thing - I MADE one!!

I started with a leftover pine board I found in my basement.  I sprayed it pale aqua and distressed the edges. 


Then I painted some $1.00 letters I found at Walmart with a ballet slipper pink spray paint - and distressed them, too!


Then I added a wooden daisy leftover from this project.

Out came the hot glue gun and on went the letters.

TA-DA!!

What do you think?  I am not sure where I will hang it.  Outside for sure....but where??

I tried it in a few places.....

Here.......



And here too...


I may just leave it resting on the deck for awhile. I can enjoy most easily here.  

Thanks for popping by!!
