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."

Holly Hearts

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!  It seems like forever since we celebrated the same holiday here in Canada over a month ago.  
Christmas is in full swing now and I've begun decorating our home with little touches of seasonal splendour.

After seeing this post written and photographed by Tania at Sew a Little Love I was ready to make something new to help decorate a cabinet in our kitchen .
Here is my version of her cute little fabric hearts:



I made three colours to hang together in a cluster...






It took about two hours to cut, applique and stuff these darling little hearts - but they were well worth the hard work.  They make me smile every time I see them!


As you can see on the top of the cabinet I have been having fun filling a few containers with a variety of Christmas-y things. I'll be back next time to share some of my "jar-fillers" with all my lovely readers!
