My Vintage Cookbook Collection

Roughly two years ago, I started getting into collecting and reading recipe books. Not only just for the recipes, but the stories being told within them through either text or the pictures and illustrations inside. It came about due to a few reasons: I needed inspiration for dinner (an ongoing saga), Susan Branch, and a […]

Pin-spiration | Halloween

When Halloween comes along I always miss the days when I mulled over costume decisions with my siblings, seeing myselfย transform as I turned into a new character, and the smell of burning pumpkins glowing by tea lights in the dark as I trick-or-treated. We’d happily stuff ourselves of honey ham sandwiches before we trekked through […]

A Craft Fair Weekend

It’s been ages since I’ve been to an actual craft fair, so I was pretty excited to go to two last weekend! So excited, even a little rain on Saturday couldn’t keep me away from the first one I attended. Ever since starting my own candle company where I hand make my candles, I have […]

Stuck In My Head Triple Feature | NEEDTOBREATHE

Thanks to Pandora, I discovered a new-to-me band, NEEDTOBREATHE (yes, all caps. No spaces. Apparently it was a marketing thing). I have just about fallen in love with them – not to mention to lead singer’s voice. To me, they’re a bit of a mixed sound of a little rock, a little county, a little […]

We have had quite the week! We’ve been steadily moving into my in-laws basement (we’re saving up to buy a house!) so going back and forth for things we need, making a ton of candles for Gloss48 that was sent out Friday, and two batches of fudge, among other time consuming things that called for […]

Have You Shopped Lately?

Thanks to LoveMelisaMichelle, on YouTube, I have found a new website, shoplately.com, for incredible and reasonably priced jewelry among other fun girly stuff! After drooling over a few pieces I was able to convince the hubby to get them as my Christmas presents this year, so now he can easily cross me off his list. […]

November | Thankful Challenge Day 1

Halloween has now officially come and gone. To celebrate the holiday, I decided to bring back a family tradition my mom started and had a honey ham with potato rolls and baked beans while enjoying Charlie Brown’s It’s the Great Pumpkin. And you know the night wouldn’t be complete without Hocus Pocus and apple cider! […]

Christmas Mouse Haul

The moment I’ve waiting for all week finally happened – stepping foot back into Christmas Mouse and getting my hands on just a few things. For those of you not familiar with Christmas Mouse, I’m sure you can only guess by the name, but it’s a store that sells Holiday related items all year round. […]
