Halloween to Winter in 60 Seconds

I had just been admiring the lower leaves left on the mountain ash in the backyard a day or two before a Halloween that was gracious enough to allow the kids to trick or treat without parkas under their costumes. Then...

Happy Halloween!

It's a Happy Halloween here in the Crow's Nest. Miss Mina has her very own hand made "Mini Me" gal pal as of yesterday. Here they are together for the first time celebrating the season. Sam, short for Samantha, has her hand in the treat cauldron, not unlike the rest of us around here.

Halloween Apothecary 2013

Just around the corner from my kitchen is our handy witch's larder. You never know when you're going to need a pinch of this or a titch of that.

A Post... Believe It or Not!

Today is a special day for our little family... our daughter's eleventh birthday. So, in honour of her day I have come out of the woodwork and dusted off the cobwebs here at Crow's Feet Chic. I've also done some dusting at home and celebrated with a Birthday cubby!

St. Patty's in the House

 I recently discovered that I don't have very much in the way of green. Lucky for me Will and his new pals were more than happy to dress for the occasion!

'Hey Girl' Valentine Party

Joining in on the Bliss Ranch 'Hey Girl' Valentine Party with my own valentine...

Unfortunately I couldn't get approval for the other 'Hey Girl' I'd done up. Wouldn't you know it was my favourite: Mr. Crow's Feet modelling a crocheted cupcake hat. Maybe next year. Or not.

Thanks for visiting!

Genuine Retro Inspiration

January seems to be a time to reorganize and start anew. I've got plans for fluffing up my kitchen and my blog and have spent too much an enjoyable amount of time browsing Pinterest for inspiration. I absolutely love this Meadowbrook kitchen and it is my main inspiration for my brightened up decor. Hopefully coming soon...

I've gotten out what I have on hand in the way of dishes and linens and have an idea of what I need. I love my vintage potholders and wanted more. I don't see them often enough anymore... but --

Duh, I know how to crochet!

Winter Wonderland

It's January and that certainly means ice skating in Canada. I remember going down to the rink at our elementary school (or the toboggan hill behind our house) every night after supper. It didn't quite look like skating on Lake Louise, Alberta, above, but it was still magical. Wilhelmina isn't one to miss out on the fun...

Crochet Anyone?

Happy New Year Everyone!

It's a sunny and warm day here, perfect for crocheted hat modelling. I have been doing quite a bit of crocheting over this Christmas break... mostly little items. Three for a special new small someone and other items -- which contain cat nip.
