What is Halloween without the classic witch costume? The Prairie Dress from Knot Sisters is such a versatile dress for the holidays. Here we have paired it with a Black Scoop Long Sleeve and a pointed Heel Cerow shoe to create a spooky witch outfit! Add a witch hat and a broom for a perfect costume this Halloween.

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Bringing the outdoors in!

After the holidays my home always feels a bit empty after having all the decorations up from Halloween then Christmas. Along with Northern California having a crazy cold spell I have been really missing all the greenery from the outdoors too. So, I have a solution to my problems. Having a love for gardening I have discovered my home always feels more happy when adding some plants planted in fun ways. A do it your self apothecary terrarium is a great way to add a little something to your home.

For a complete how to go here: http://blog.westelm.com/2012/04/17/mothers-day-terrarium-by-nicole-balch-of-making-it-lovely/

 

In addition to terrariums here are a few unique ideas I found on Pintrest for bringing the outdoors in:

I may need to be on the hunt for a fun bird bath. This is such a fabulous idea!

Different shapes and sized vases with a simple fern leaf can add a pop of color to a mantle or shelf.

If you are able to get outdoors and are feeling a little adventurous a must see place that is located in Northern California is Fern Canyon.  It is located in Humbolt County in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. It is a winding little canyon that is covered in ferns on each side of the canyon walls. It truly is an amazing place and reminds me of how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful state.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Fair Trade Month

In honor of Fair Trade Month I decided to make a coffee candle.

Fair Trade is important because it ensures coffee growers in developing countries receive a higher fair price for their product. This allows for a higher standard of living for struggling coffee producers. The Fair trade movement also promotes sustainable practices to keep ecosystems happy.

I enjoy a caffeine kick from a cup of coffee. In fact, the aroma alone helps me get through the day.

Here are directions for a DIY Coffee Candle:

1. Materials needed:

1 candle, fair trade beans, wick, and mason jar.

2. Melt wax in a pot or double boiler. 3.) Place wick in jar and pour beans in the bottom. 

4. Once the wax is liquid pour over beans. Make sure you hold the wick up.

5. Get a bowl of cold water to speed up cooling time.

6. Remove any excess wax on the jar.

7. Enjoy your new yummy smelling candle!

Posh Pumpkins

With Fall finally here so are the pumpkins and other harvest related decor. With this being my favorite time of year I try and find ways to change up the average carved pumpkin. Every year I purchase a Martha Stewart magazine and attempt to recreate some of the ideas she has dreamed up. Here are a few creative ways to decorate your table and your yard with some fabulously dressed up pumpkins. Check out more ideas here: http://www.marthastewart.com

Another popular trend is cloth pumpkins that come in array of colors and sizes. I have been a big fan of the velvet pumpkins made by an artist out of Oregon and have been adding to my collection for a couple of years now. They are gorgeous and make a great addition to your table arrangement from October through Thanksgiving. A wonderful shop in Chico, CA called Frolic carries them. You can find them at 8th & Main Antique Center on the corner of Main and 8th Street. Here is a link to her FaceBook page to view some of the many treasures she has.        http://www.facebook.com/pages/Frolic/138951309464519?ref=ts&fref=ts

 

                                        Happy Fall and I hope you enjoy the many changing colors that this season brings!
