Knit one, knead a little

It has been a really long time since I have written much at all.  Aside from Instagram blips here and there I really haven’t found myself with the urge to write.  Perhaps a lack of inspiration, the winter blahs and a bit of just not knowing which direction I am heading have held me back….

’tis the season – thinking small

Local Places to shop/eat/sip this holiday season

Summer update and Boosh!

Well in to August I feel like the summer is just flying by.  Most of our days have been spent with a quiet park wander, collecting acorns, sticks and stones and visiting with my grandmother.  I am also in the midst of writing my Live Small Town Fall piece and starting to think of back…

Whiskey Tan + Wally’s new collar

Several months ago I contacted Whiskey Tan about their beautiful handmade collars!  The trouble was Wally is a restless spirit who really hates being tinkered with in anyway so buckling up a nice traditional collar wasn’t a great option.  Chantel, the wonderful human behind Whiskey Tan, told me to leave it with her and she…

HR Ceramics – a look at another lovely Canadian artist

Just before Christmas I happened upon HR Ceramics (Quebec) on Instagram – yes I find most things on this platform; it is my favourite.  I noticed that Hanna had made this sweet country inspired mug that I wanted to buy for my country loving sister in law. I reached out through a direct message and…

Terre Ferme Pottery

Yesterday I received a BEAUTIFUL package from Kentia of Terre Ferme Pottery in Alberta.  I was anticipating something lovely but it is spectacular!  I had to share my entire experience with you! I stumbled upon Terre Ferme in December I think it was on Instagram.  I truly have no idea how I did but there…

Recycled Easter Eggs!

It has been a while since I last posted so I thought I would hop on by and share the Easter Egg craft the kids and I did in preparation for our egg hunt! I was out the other day and noticed the traditional plastic empty eggs in a store  – the kind we always…

Back to the basics

We are already in to 2018 and so far I have been rather productive!  I am not a traditional resolution maker – in the past I have just disappointed myself after failing 3wks in to a new year and who needs that?!  So I set a mental goal list instead.  One that is loose and…

Hello Stella

I’m not really sure how exactly I happened upon Hello Stella on Instagram but I’m so glad I did!  Lindsay is a Hamilton yarn dyer who uses Canadian wool base yarns. The colour ways she offers are brilliant and unique which is likely what drew me in!  A maker with a kind heart and solid…

Think small and local this season!

*Pre- read FYI* I just wanted to let you know that I am not sponsored or affiliated with these outstanding places in any way!  I do this because I love sharing places and things I find! It’s that time of year already!  Parties, coffee dates and gift lists galore.  It is at times much easier…
