Ornament of the Day 2, Blogmas 2018

While a lot of people have ornament sets for their trees and like to stick within a set colour scheme or ornament type when they decorate their Christmas tree, I certainly don’t. My ornaments are a hodge podge from almost 30 years of life, and […]

The Lure of Beautiful Books

The Lure of Beautiful Books

I will admit to being one of those people who is all business with their books. I only read appendices if I specifically need information from them, I tend to only read short dedications (sorry, authors!), and pictures? Not really necessary. Or, I used to […]

An Historian About… Potted Potter!

October seems to be a crazy busy month for me- four theatre/ballet outings, Junior Circle events, a wedding, and Thanksgiving! While it’s not allowing for quite the amount of time at home that I would like, I’m really enjoying spending time with friends and family […]

A Wait for a Book Can Go One of Two Ways

A Wait for a Book Can Go One of Two Ways

These past few weeks have been a weird mix of memoirs, chick-lit, fiction, and Harry Potter. Normally I’m not so focused on classic literature, but Austen and Brontë feature more heavily than normal this month! I find that sometimes I end up finding similar books […]

A Summer About Town!

A Summer About Town!

I am trying my hardest to enjoy Winnipeg and get out about my own town! It’s not a huge city, and living here this long when there is not much that interests me. (Believe it or not, there is not a whole lot of medieval […]
