There’s something about a man-made structure covered in leaves and vines that just totally pulls me in like a magnet – and when I was in Amsterdam last month, I found myself surrounded with this kind of beauty with every turn. Read more »

Post image for How To Properly Store Your Summer Clothes

I have dreams of one day having a Clueless-level closet. The size of a small trailer, I’d showcase my clothes from all seasons and a computer system would tell me what to wear. Unfortunately I’m dealing with exactly the opposite. Read more »

Great advice and the well thought out steps to getting the job done. Perfect time to weed out the unwanted and donate to those less fortunate. Thanks for the tips.

Great ideas! I also never thought of stacking heaviest on bottom and lightest on top. My Dad built a cedar closet in out basement for seasonal clothes storage. I don't have a basement so the garage is my spot. Plastic bins work well for my clothes.

Stunning home, and beautiful interview. It was great to read about a south shore gal - I went to Bridgewater State and I too adore the MA shorelines & the Cape of course! The light blue trim on the house reminds me of the Cape :) After checking out her husband's furniture it's so obvious they are a match made in heaven - loved his stuff- very turn of the century. Love love love Warm Regards, Alexandra www.littlewildheart.com

Post image for How To Simplify A Complicated Life

I’ve always been a hoarder collector by nature. As a child, I had the eye of a magpie, collecting and displaying little things I’d find, but while this habit started out innocently enough, lately I’ve felt the need to simplify. Read more »

Post image for Decorate With Beach Stones And Make Summer Endless

Rocks aren’t exactly the most convenient thing to collect, but over the years I’ve managed to amass a small congregation of them. Picked up from rivers, streams, and ocean shores, smoothed by thousands of years of elemental exposure, when I find one with an interesting striation or shape, into my pocket it goes, along with small shells and other tokens of the natural world.

I also happen to have a little rock collection of my own. But unlike yours, I placed several of them in small fish bowls and scattered them all throughout my home. Maybe I should try this out. I’ll just have to sort through them first, though. I’m excited! Great collection, by the way!

How do you get a job in visual display? Do they hire artists to do this kind of work?

Sage is a medicine, you can use it for this purpose. It's for everyone to use. if there is dangerous energy in the home you'll feel it and would then want to call in a "spiritual master". using your intuition is better than embracing fear.
shelly -Aug 11, 2014, 5:40PM
People should note that it's VERY dangerous to tamper with energy if not properly trained in it. People spend years becoming spiritual masters and this kind of thing should not be taken lightly. Too often sacred practices are mistaken for easy (and not to mention trendy) activities and this can put folks in some bad situations. Energy is POWERFUL, people.

Kenzie Smith -Aug 04, 2014, 8:01PM
I love all of those plants! I am definitely going to have to look into a couple of those :) So far my dogs seem very uninterested in eating plants (other than grass) but I would hate for them to think that it was okay to eat an inside plant and have it be toxic.

best sites for editing photos -Aug 22, 2014, 7:10AM
I am personally used canon 1100d model; I want to know actually what the main tricks to take a professional photograph. Anyone help or suggest me ?
Liz -Aug 17, 2014, 3:19AM
A useful tool for picking out a film camera is flickr. There are groups devoted to different cameras (pretty much every camera that has ever existed) and you can get an idea of how the photos will turn out because someone else has already done the work for you! The photographers are also usually specific about film type and speed which can help you decide what kind of film to buy.

Post image for Decor Inspiration: Decorating With Air Plants

I love that hanging wood + air plant combo! My husband and I own Air Plant Design Studio and we love seeing new ways to decorate with them. Free People is personally one of my favorite brands and I was pretty excited to see your take on them - awesome! To answer Clara's question above, air plants don't need to grow roots. The "roots" that you sometimes see on them are not used to take in nutrients but rather for when the plant is in the wild and wants to attach itself to something (like a tree). Sometimes we'll remove them from our plants for a cleaner look but if you have one without, they won't likely grow back. We have an informative section on air plant care on our site if you need any additional information! :)
Clara -Aug 02, 2014, 1:31PM
So cute! I bought one two weeks ago and I was still searching the best way to display it. I wonder though, how to their roots grow in a pot like the clay one you show? They can't attach to anything? or will they just spread in it? Mine is in a glass and it doesn't seem to grow any roots...
