Post image for Expand Your Closet With This Hat Band DIY

My favorite kind of accessories are the ones that instantly expand the options already existing in my closet: A statement belt, a removable collar, and hat bands to name just a few. The latter of those three just happens to be a ridiculously easy DIY that you can whip up in mere minutes.Read More

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

Hi, I was wondering, what is the amount of wax needed for a 1 pint mason jar? And is it okay if I use parafin wax instead of beeswax?
zoey -Sep 25, 2015, 7:33PM
I had some problems with Clare. When the wax dried out the flowers disapeared. Can anyone can help us? Cheers!

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

Pat -Aug 14, 2014, 12:32PM
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.

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.
fp julie -Aug 11, 2014, 3:18PM
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)
