Smallbones Studio: Handmade Haberdashery

Citrus cosmetics bag

Hats, mittens, scarves, belts, socks, change purses, cosmetic bags: these are things we can call haberdashery, commonly used for men’s accessories but now encompassing women’s as well. I handcraft these one-of-a-kind items with long-lasting use in mind. Mostly for women, but I’ll be fashioning the odd thing for men, too.

Smallbones Studio: Accessories for Your Simple Home

House & Home: Smallbones

A simple home is deserving of attractive accessories that provide comfort and utility – things that add pleasure to our daily lives. I make the things I like with quality, natural materials that will last a very long time. They also make welcome gifts for almost any occasion. My family can attest to that!

Smallbones Studio: For Babies & Children

Baby sets for the wee one in your life hand knit with soft, natural organic cotton. The yarn is grown and spun with none of the chemicals used on conventionally-grown cotton. Babies have sensitive skin, so you want to protect that tiny body. Various sets, some including a bath set with wash cloths and pure castile soap.

Springing forward as the good life continues

Sourdough Bread

It’s Spring, finally. It was actually over 20°C yesterday and the sunshine was glorious – a reminder that simple living really is as simple as enjoying a warm and sunny day! There are Loons on the lake and ‘our’ Pileated Woodpecker has been visiting. Both of these birds will disappear from this area when all the weekend visitors arrive, with their increased activity and noise. But for now it’s lovely to see and hear them.

About Smallbones

I fell in love with my heritage house on sight and decided that I wanted to live within its old walls before I’d even been inside. It was built in 1855 by William McBride, Gore’s Landing’s first boat builder and coffin maker. It’s a small and simple dwelling that retains most of its original character. Gore’s Landing is a wonderful hamlet with its very own open-twice-each-week library in the community hall.
