About

Why, hello there! My name is Antoinette, welcome to my blog! Have you seen my Etsy? Make sure to like the facebook!

My mother and grandmother began to teach me to cook, bake, sew, and craft as early as I can remember. At nearly twenty-one years of age, I have a passion for making things with my own two hands like my mother, grandparents, great-grandparents and so on. I love baking tasty treats and cooking good and natural food, whether it’s dinner, cupcakes of any kind, tea or coffee, cauliflower soup, and anything else beside bread! I enjoy quilting, sewing my own clothing, crocheting, doing obscene cross stitches (okay, maybe great-grandmother Carnahan didn’t do that…) and completing nearly any other task handed my way. This website is a compilation of work, tales and stories, and my journey through life as a (kitchen) witch!

A bit about myself:

I do, in fact, have a bit of an anxiety problem, though I’ve learned to manage it over the years. I am a big fan of alliteration, though!

I love people and their cultures. As stated in my introduction post, through reading my blog, you may learn a good amount of culture, history, traditions, and perhaps even French, Spanish, and German.

I’m kind of a tea snob. Also a coffee snob.

I’m all about good health. I try really hard to watch what I put into and onto my body, and I enjoy working out.

I am also a bit of an artist. I like to paint, and I enjoy taking photos. You’ll probably see a good amount of my photos; my paintings, not so much.

As alluded to before, I consider myself a witch. You may have heard of Wicca, but I don’t consider myself Wiccan. I consider myself an Earth-revering, animal-loving, people-hugging, sick boyfriend-curing, recycling, reusing, idealistic, eclectic, intelligent self-proclaimed hippie… in case you were wondering. (:

People ask me what I’m going to do with my life, and tell me I need to settle in, choose a “decent” career, become a “homemaker”, and bear some children. I disagree with this more than anything else. As an independent female, I want nothing more than to live life at the fullest and be happy doing so. To me that means working now as a penniless art framer, journeying around Western New York with my closest pals, saving up my money to travel, cooking good food, writing, loving the people who I am blessed to know and have, and going where life takes me. Every day is an adventure through my eyes. So settle in and join the adventure, we’d love to have you. (:
