Winter Whites Update!

  Winter Whites! Fresh, white snow is nothing short of pure magic. The chill of winter is often associated with a stoic, rigid nature of being.

The Cormo Update!

  Plucky Cormo The beauty of Fall is upon us along with its distinct temperament. What a great contrast it seems to be — the unwelcoming, cold air outside with the indoor coziness that beckons us to our favorite comfy chair and the warmth of a crackling fireplace. This time of year is the perfect […]

Coziness

  November has a character all its own. The leaves falling at a rapid clip and the unmistakably earthy scent that is late autumn. The nostalgia that it brings, I can’t quite put into words. It’s easy to enjoy the smell of a burning fire and watching children (or those child at heart) rake up […]

Skies of November & Barely Birch Update

  I find few things comparable to the beauty of a Michigan Fall and those broody skies we see this time of year. This welcomed time is full of ample excuses (the weather from those broody skies for example!) for having a warm cup of something in hand at all times while cozying up to the fire with knitting that […]
