Handmade Delights and Vintage Treasures

“Leap, and the net will appear” has long been one of my favourite sayings. In 1998, in my late 40s, I took the plunge. I leapt – from Toronto to a simple old heritage home built in 1855 located in a tiny hamlet by a small lake. My leap turned out to be a pivotal point in my life.

I immersed myself in learning some of the artisanal crafts of past generations. In the following years I caned 300 chair seats, wove baskets, made soap and beeswax candles, sewed, knit, crocheted and hooked rugs, all in the traditional ways, and all a part of the dream. Smallbones Studio of Home Arts & Sustainable Living was born.

Thanks for visiting – I hope you enjoy this small exploration into my world. May your dreams come true, too.
