Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

It’s been a year or two since I last participated in the Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom, but I thought, why not this year and here I am with my official “party post!” Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. I planted myself here in the fall of 2000 and I’ve been blogging ever since.

A little about the blog. . .  I write about a little of this and a little of that. I write about food and crochet a lot! If you look to the sidebar on your right, you’ll see a list with some of my more popular posts.

A little bit about me. . .  I live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley with my family. My husband and I have three children (a Dr. Who-loving 10 year old, a Lego-crazed 7 year old, and a 3 year old princess).

Currently I work part-time as a library clerk, a job I absolutely love! It allows me to interact with members of our community, participate in amazing programs, and of course, get the scoop on what everyone’s reading these days!

I love all things colonial, vintage, antique, and basically old!

I love to do all kinds of crafts, but especially crochet (though I recently dusted off my knitting needles).

I love canning, pickling, and fermenting.

I love coffee and chocolate.

I guess the best way to “get to know me” is just by snooping around my blog. Check out a recipe or two, see what I’ve been hooking up, or just what’s new in my life.

Discovering new blogs is always fun, so I am really looking forward to visiting everyone and hopefully making some new bloggy friends! Thanks for stopping by — be sure to leave a comment so I know you were here and I promise to make a return visit to your blog. Have a great day! Oh, and you can follow my blog with Bloglovin!

P.S. Feel free to keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram, too!
