Open for Business: Things For People

Finally, I’ve taken the leap and opened an Etsy store!  I’ve been reading up on advertising and copy writing, drawing up designs and ordering supplies!  I’m so excited, but a little scared, to finally open my store and get my creations out there.

Obsessed: House Plants

With the weather getting cold we’re lighting the fireplaces and cozy-ing the bed, but I just can’t part with the impending loss of greenery that the snow will bring.  All year round we keep plants in the house, but it is especially important to me during the winter months.  We have quite a growing (see what I did there) collection of cacti, succulents, a fern and a spider plant, and tons of jade plants we’re rooting.  We actually found the jade plants on the side of the road, the owner said the limbs were cut from a plant over 20 years old! I so hope they live when we replant them!  There are many sources of inspiration and information about house plants all over the web, it got me a little obsessed with wanting a bigger collection

Natural Me: Flax Gel

Flax Gel 2 So my hair is naturally wavy.  Actually that’s being kind, it’s more frizzy than wavy and after years of having perms, then straightening, and then coming to the realization that my hair hates me, I’m taking a new route.  I’ve been reading around the web about the Curly Girl Method.  Basically you stop using any hair products containing sulfates and silicones.  Big surprise, a variation of those 2 ingredients are in pretty much everything on the store shelves.  BUT why should these be avoided?

Obsessed: Layered Rugs

I have to say, in the warmer months I HATE AREA RUGS!  Everybody is shedding and dirt and dust are constantly being tracked through the house.  Area rugs just catch the furry tumble weeds around here.  Now that that’s off my chest, I can confess that in the fall and winter…I love them!  Area rugs, not furry tumble weeds.  I never love those.  I’m especially obsessed with the idea of layering rugs.  Not only is it cost effective, but it adds coziness and texture to sometimes boring, bare floors.

Obsessed: Fireplaces

Its coming.  The cold.  And there is nothing we can do about it. This type of weather gets me thinking warm thoughts.  And if you’re in hurricane Sandy’s path, warm and cozy is exactly what you need (in addition to hurricane preparation stuff duh). Remember long ago when the cold made me think of warm, cozy beds? Now I’m pining over fireplaces:
