I grew up on a farm in Kent County, Ontario, bordering on the hamlet of Morpeth. This land, which my ancestors toiled over for generations, etched itself into the landscape of my memory, inspiring me to be the artist and writer I am today.
Every time I return to the Farm, I return home to British Columbia with a new batch of treasures: post cards, hat pins, journals, dishes. Up to this point, I have been blogging about some of these finds on my art journal blog, delightfilledart.wordpress.com (genealogy category). While painting, I’m often side-tracked by looking through my “old stuff.” I find it so fascinating, that I decided to start a new blog dedicated to documenting and sharing these treasures.
I hope that you will enjoy following my blog and learning about life one hundred years ago in rural Ontario, in a time before wind turbines.
