What a great idea! I usually pair rosemary and vanilla with lemon for a fresh smelling scent, but I never thought to use the rind as a container. Clever!

Hey, this is awesome! One question though, can it be regular salt instead? i have pets and this is the perfect natural solution! :)

Post image for Summer Meets Fall With Pressed Flower Candles

I you want a sort of hazy/foggy effect, breath onto your lens and take a couple shots before the moisture disappears. It gives photos a lovely soft quality.

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

I've done some patching using embroidered motifs cut from vintage doilies and runners onto denim and cutoffs. It's also a great way to cover stains in shirts. I cut out lace motifs from a table cloth and sewed them all over a tee starting with the coffee stain I was covering up.

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)

Love these!! I especially love the boyfriend cut offs!

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 5 Tips For Getting To Know Your New Town

On the eve of my third major relocation, my father quoted Yogi Berra: “You see a fork in the road, you take it.” Read more »

Biene -Jul 23, 2014, 1:40PM
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.

This time, I linked up with Megan, the Design By Terrain Supervisor, for a workshop on how to create the perfect desert terrarium! Read more »
