Hi, I’m Rebecca

Culinary creator and domestic darling to my family of six.

I’ve lived in Canada my whole life and have been married to my husband for 12 years. I love the snow, say sorry all the time, slept with a pack of wolves outside, and always have maple syrup on hand. (The stereotypes might be true!)

I love learning new skills, being creative, and spending time with my family!

I took culinary arts in college but most of my kitchen experience, and knowledge, comes from spending time in the kitchen with my grandmother! You can learn more about her here!

I’m here to share my handmade vintage life, old-fashioned recipes, fun and useful crafts, all with a nostalgic feel.

If you’re a fan of deliciously simple vintage recipes and old-fashioned skills then join us as we cultivate comfort and nostalgia in our handmade life!

Where this all began

Most of the recipes that you find here are from my grandmother’s recipe box. They are all either recipes she made often, or recipes from her friends and family. If you made something she loved, she always asked for the recipe afterwards!

Since I was a small child, I spent a lot of my time at her house. She taught me how to sew, how to live a healthy balanced life, how to dance, and the importance of exercising your body as well as your mind.

So, now I get to share all of that with you! A life-times worth of knowledge, experience, and love!
