Post image for What’s Your Favorite Fairytale?

When I was little, one of my absolute favorite stories was the 12 Dancing Princesses, and it is something that will always bring to mind the holiday season.  The fairytale told the story of 12 beautiful princesses who were drawn from their beds each night by the desire to dance. They would sneak out of their castle and travel through three magical forests, which was always my favorite part of the story. The first forest was shining silver, the second a glowing gold, and the third was the most magical of all, full of shimmering diamonds. The imagery was gorgeous and I dreamed of one day finding these enchanted forests. Read more »

I've always loved grimms' fairy tales. We had some older versions of the stories so they were more violent and scary but I loved them so much.

I thought this was to dry the initial way the recipe is supposed to be made. I added a flax egg (1.5 tbsp ground flax seed and 3 tbsp water that you let sit for a few minutes) and I also took out half a cup of corn meal and put in 1/2 cup of my gluten free for blend. It came out perfect my husband and I loved them.

I just tried this recipe and what a success! I used 1c boxed coconut milk and coconut oil. Muffins are super moist with just the right amount of crumb. My coconut oil did solidify a bit when I added the semi-cold milk and applesauce, but it didn't affect the final product. I did notice that the batter seemed somewhat dry before cooking, but given how wonderful the muffins are, I'm sure its okay! Thank you for your recipe. It's so nice to find a healthy gluten free, dairy free, and egg free recipe. Makes eating fun again :)

It’s sometimes nice to reduce complexity in your life, just step away from the stress and busy routine and just simplify. Making things more streamlined and more efficient can have a great impact on you and in the long run lead to a healthier you. Your life seems to slow down a little when you simplify and you’re able to appreciate more free time and enjoy moments as opposed to rushing through them.

I apologize for so many comments, if I could delete the others and start over, I would. I just wanted to say thanks to FP, for not posting both of my same comments, whew! Also, I thought I found out where the blue boho bedding hanging from the bed between the trees was from, but it took me to a site that I thought was a store. It ended up being about the Photographers, which was still okay, because I had a chance to write to the one who originally took the picture and asked where I could purchase the bedding. I gave my e-mail, so I am hoping to hear from them soon, if I do, I will pass the info along! Crossed fingers! :)

Claudia, I just checked your link to see your Daughters bed, it is so wonderful! I also love her room! You were very smart to do it the way you did, my Daughter is 19 now, but I went through all of those phases of bedroom attire, baby, toddler, tween, teenager, and grown up, rather than doing what you did. You made it so she can go through all of those phases with one great idea, instead of 10. Now your little girl can grow with her room. She will go through all of the changes, but her room won't have to. This is for sure, a room, she can even have at my Daughters age, well done! I just wanted to give you kudos on a smart choice when deciding what do to with her room, a big thumbs up!

If you like these you should check out Kranitzky and Overstreet. These two artists (from my school and hometown) have been making killer art for many years that has a similar vibe to it...only with more than just paper. I saw them give a talk and technique demo once...AMAZING!

There are some things in life that you love doing and then there are some things you have to do that are not so great. I’ve always been told that there’s never a rainbow without the rain; that there must be dark days that are grumpy and dull in order for you to appreciate the beautiful colors. Read more »

Post image for DIY Pumpkin Candles

UPDATE: This post originally ran on October 4th 2012 but with Thanksgiving coming up we wanted to share it again since these would make lovely decorations!

It’s that time of year…pumpkins are pretty much everywhere you look, and I don’t mind one bit – there is something about their plump orange appearance that is so loveable. Plus, in addition to making great decorations, they’re also pretty delicious.  I had some wax left over from my homemade lip balm so I decided to use it to make some candles – and then I thought, why not turn mini pumpkins into candles?

Delphine , We had a sweet little cat who was not a thing except love. We took her in and kept her fed and warm and loved. One year ago 4 days before Thanksgiving, here in California, I went grocery shopping and right next to the kitten-cat food, I saw the most beautiful red ribbon type fabric collar, with a bright silver bell attatched to the silver hoops & buckle. I bought that for her ( along with turkey cat food ) I could just picture her wearing that bright red collar with the shiny silver bell against her grey fur. How beautiful she would look for the holdays I thought. And only a few dollars... However, I never dreamed I would never see her again. I went everywhere, posted missing posters in the rain, went to the local shelter many times, put her photos on Craigslist and....asked the owner of the house ( he inherited ) if he knew she was missing. He said well, she was a stray... It was then when he put the house up for sale. Well it sold about a year later 3 mos. ago. And the building instructers told us there was a dead cat under the house. Only 1 door to the basement and only 1 key to the special padlock on that door that only 1 person had. And there was no other way to get down there unless that padlock was opened, I remember it so well because the shelter said to look in any crawl spaces first-I asked the owner and he said No, No way is there any way under this house with out the key. I suppose the moral of my unbelievabley sad, amoral story is, sometimes a sparkling but simple grocery store collar may be all that brings you pleasure, when the cat just loves you for loving it. (No disrespect to the beautiful breathtakingly items this store sells

I’ve noticed lately that my eyes are looking a little aged. Every time I look in the mirror I see small crow’s feet, faint dark circles, and sometimes they are a little puffy.  It isn’t worrying me too much as I know aging comes with life, but I do want to make a conscious effort to maybe try to delay the hands of time by using good skin practices.
