In the last year and a half, I have been fortunate to discover a lot of great small businesses on Instagram. Since we are traveling in France this week, I thought it might be fun to share some of those businesses with you. I plan to do this again throughout the year, as I want to do everything I can to help these businesses. I hope you will join me in supporting them.
I have always been in awe of crafters that have successfully completed DIY’s that involved gold, copper or silver leaf. I have seen projects were these super thin sheets of metal have been added to mirrors, frames, and even furniture. But somehow I imagined myself doing this and ending up with sheets of gold leaf stuck everywhere but on my project. Lately, I have been on an orange and copper craze and I have wanted to try my luck at pumpkin crafts. So I decided to make copper leaf pumpkins.
Can I just say this is one of my absolute favorite pumpkin craft DIY’s ever?

Halloween is a crazy time in our town. We get lots of trick-or-treaters (600+) and costumes and porch decorations are a really big deal. So how could it possibly be that I have never decorated the inside of our home for Halloween? Well, that has finally changed! Today I have made up for many years of neglecting our home on Halloween. I created Halloween table decorations for a dinner party I am hosting for my girlfriends. And I love them!
It’s a modern family problem. We all have a set or two of old china. It belonged to a grandma or a mother-in-law. It’s very sentimental but it’s just not modern. It’s boring and it isn’t what we dreamed of when it comes time to setting a table and entertaining. It’s collecting dust and also creating tons of guilt.
So what’s a girl to do?
It was almost a year ago when I realized for the first time there was a National Coffee Day. Believe it or not, that was the day I decided to get rid of the coffee station in my Butler’s Pantry. Why?
