"What is your hobby? Every woman
 ought to have some pet interest in
 life, outside of the everyday routine
 which composes her regular occupations.
 What is yours?"

~The Mother's Magazine, January 1915

This past year I learned a new hobby:
to knit

Before that I use to:
to paint

I received a gift:
an easel

A woman can have
more than one hobby,

What is your hobby? xx


  1. Ooh, good post. My hobby used to be scrapbooking. I have a bunch of supplies but haven't worked on anything in about a month. I need to get motivated.
    My newest hobby is collecting books about interior design. I've been studying the evolution of decorating from the 1890's to today. I love looking at the photos of homes decorated in the 40's, 50's, and 60's.

  2. Knitting and crocheting for sure, and doing art collage journaling has been a new learn this year. Unfortunately time is limited to expand in all that I would love to do, including antiquing and learning an instrument :). Enjoy painting, the setting looks so lovely!!!

  3. Your easel is beautiful! Looking forward to seeing the results. My new hobby is knitting, and I love it!

  4. Knitting, sewing, cooking, reading...but painting? I've always wanted to learn to paint...and spinning? Yes, I want to learn to spin. And rug hooking? have you seen the reproduction antique hooked rugs? I want to do that! I sure hope that the adage you can't teach an old dog new tricks is not true because this old gal has much to learn!!

  5. What a beautiful spot to paint! And what a nice easel!
    Wow...Hobbies... I have too many, and not enough time to enjoy them all.
    Sewing, Writing, Baking, and a little dabbling here and there in knitting, crocheting, and painting. At least blogging kind of gives me the motivation to finish projects I've started. I used to have a million unfinished projects laying around, now only about a thousand ;)!

  6. What an awesome easel! My hobbies...first taking pictures and second, knitting.


  7. Love the photos! And the Easel. I've never been able to paint, or draw. But I do love yarny things- knitting, crochet, spinning.

  8. Nice easel! And it's in such a pretty spot. Can we see some of your paintings?

    Knitting, reading, and bird watching are my main hobbies.
