We are Jim and Gina Barry. We live in a beautiful part of rural eastern Nova Scotia. We moved here in 2005 from Newfoundland where Jim is originally from. In the beginning of our years together we owned and operated a bakery. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to you if you have been reading for a while.

Now we have day jobs working from home with and, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

On our blog you will find a wide variety of topics, but Jim is the woodchuck of this duo. He can often be found in the workshop fixing, sharpening, cutting, building something or working at our sawmill.

Guess who gets to do the laundry!!

Now in the beginning, the sawmill was his thing. I really had no interest and thought it was something he would putter at in his spare time. One day I thought I would give him a hand and the rest is history. It is really fun, Who knew!!
