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.
