Introduction I'm a city girl living in the Michigan country woods with the love of my life and our baby boy. I love to do any kind of handcraft (crochet, knit, embroider), all things vintage (especially from the 1930s-1950s), and books of all kinds. I have a business making and selling lovely, yarny things for children and adults called Wild Violets which was named for my sweet angel daughter, Violet Georgine. I love girly things like make up and clothes, but I'm also learning to love getting my hands dirty by gardening, raising animals, and (trying) to fix things. This blog is about all of those things.
