Sweet Selkirk

If you were to ask Max what his favourite park is he would say Selkirk. We headed to this wee gem of a park on an overcast day in July for a picnic and exploration. The first thing we noticed after we parked was the beautiful view. Waves crashing up on the rocky shore surrounded…

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….

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…

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

Think small and local this season!

December Happenings!

I have been really busy “making” Christmas but I have a few things coming up that I thought I would share! Holiday shopping guide for gifts!  A post similar to last year with some suggestions to help you find the perfect gift for friends and family in the greater Hamilton area.  I’m hoping to post…

CSA love + Matz Fruit Barn

As some of you know I have been participating in Matchbox Garden’s CSA for a few years now.  I love the weekly drive out to Caledonia and throughout the summer the kids and I stop and wander along the river enjoying the scenery before we pick up our share. The last two years Hanna has…

School Days + New Routine

And just like that September is in full swing and fall routines have begun.  As much as I appreciate the consistency that comes with school days I would be lying if I said I am not missing the tiny voices -that drove me batty just last week 😉 – calling me repeatedly.  This year is…
