Post image for Summer Meets Fall With Pressed Flower Candles

The soft murmur of a new season is on the horizon. Suddenly, we’re all sick of wearing sandals and cut offs, and sure, we still love the beach, but does it have to be so hot every day? The collective yearning for apples and cider, cold air, and layers. Read more »

I am making these right now and since the beeswax has a very strong scent, my candle scented oils that I am adding to the beeswax isn't really taking over like I would like it to. I added lavender and for me, it made my beeswax smell a little better but they don't smell like lavender at all. This recipe was awesome though and they are pretty easy to make :) Thanks for the awesome recipe!

It's such a weird moment when you follow a link on pinterest and see that the model in the post is someone you went to high school with. You do a double take. The world is crazy small!

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)

Looks fantastic! There's something to be said for finally getting digital images out in to real-time print :) I love making artists books. Amelia.x

I love cutting images out of magazines, and saving Polaroids but I never knew what to do with them. Recently actually I made a zine about feminism, role models, things like that. It was really random, but I had a small accordion book kit I got from Paper Source, so I put it to use. xostylestalker.com

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 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 »

This is so gorgeous! I adore natural elements in decorating, and I am SUPER excited to try this one! We just moved to a tiny island and I am dying to get out there and start collecting beach treasures and driftwood to do this! oXo
Mary Jo -Aug 31, 2014, 8:31PM
so I got all the supplies and my fiancé and I made one. I was skeptical because it's been awhile since I made anything. Well, we both loved doing it and they came out great. I made one for my son at college to hang in his room and one for his girlfriend who is moving into a new apt. They loved them. I made a big one for our room that we love. We only used natural things we found at the beach. Shells, feathers, driftwood, rocks and sea glass, etc. I had to substitute the fishermans netting with wired jute ribbon which worked out fine. Loved this.

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!

I love getting the opportunity to collaborate with Terrain. Throughout the year, they host fun workshops at their store in Glen Mills,PA. Only a short drive away from our home office, it’s always a treat when I get the chance to visit the store and work with one of the talented gals who work there. 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 »

Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses. An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and get educated at the same time. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.

In regards to present day fashion, the fitness world has created a craze of certain items such as gym tank tops and yoga pants that are worn as casual wear by many people on a daily basis, whether they attend a gym or not.
