I actually just received a mini orchid from a friend. I think this is the perfect opportunity to create the macramé hanger. http://etsy.com/shop/eathlingcreations/

I love the macrame hangers, too! They are sweet and so are the tiny plants ♥

Post image for DIY Boot Chains: Dress Up Your Favorite Shoes For Fall

If they’re not already, boots should most definitely be a staple in your wardrobe. A pair of timeless black ankle boots have the ability to make even the sweetest of summer dresses suddenly feel tough, and take a simple jeans-and-tee look from “laundry day” to date night. Read more »

WOW, I love this idea. I had placed a pair of clip on earrings on my flip-flops and then painted the bands with the 'sparkle' nail polish available and they looked so much better!! Pat

I've been meaning to make some leather boot chains with conchos, but I keep putting off my visit to the cowboy shop for supplies. This might give me a push in the right direction. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HypnoticaVintage

Liz - I would recommend either hand washing with a very mild detergent or taking them to a dry cleaner (the dry cleaner is most likely your best bet)

Would the denim with the leather patches still be washable?

I definitely love the scalloped edge. It looks so cute and fashionable paired with your favorite old jeans! You definitely don't need to buy new jeans to be fashionable, you could use your favorite ones to customize your outfit.

Post image for DIY Giant Triangle Driftwood Crystal Dreamcatcher

Lately I’ve been doing lots of creating. I usually just gather whatever natural-looking materials I can find, put on some music, light a stick of incense, and see what happens. And these days, I’ve been winding up with lots of triangular dreamcatcher-looking creations. Read more »

great and useful advice, thank you. I'm also about to move to a new town and I'm super excited, but also very scared. I am not much of a socialite, so searching for opportunities to connect with locals is key for me!
Deana -Jul 21, 2014, 4:32PM
Great advice! I wish I had read this before moving when I was in college. It would have helped me adjust to my new town so much quicker! @Jamie Welcome to Pittsburgh! I second Summer's recommendation about the Strip District; you can find anything there and the best restaurants are in that area! Also check out the night life in Shadyside; there are a ton of great bars in that area.
