Vintage Colored Glass

There is nothing more beautiful than setting a table with vintage colored glasses. I recently visited the showroom of Back Country Mercantile and Amanda, the founder had just received a bunch of sparkly new glasses representing all the colors of the rainbow. I chose a gorgeous turquoise pair and I have used and adored them all summer. Now I am starting to think of what color my next set will be for the fall. As usual, I went to Pinterest to give me some inspiration. Here is what I found and I am in LOVE with each table setting..

Candleholic Shop

There is a uber talented girl in my town who started the company Candleholic. She upcycles, wine, champagne, and other fancy alcohol bottles into scented candles by carefully cutting each bottle by hand and sanding them to perfection. The glam container is filled with American soy wax laced with a blend of perfume and essential oils. Candleholic candles are so beautiful and look amazing displayed around your home and make the most perfect gifts. I use the containers when the candle runs out as a vase, changing up the flowers all year long. Each candle is beautifully crafted and the entire collection runs from $20-$40. To see the complete assortment click HERE.

I bought this red, white and blue Tito’s candle (it was citronella too). It was so perfect for a 4th of July BBQ….

How great did my friend Susie style her candle?

Here is my empty Veuve Cliquot candle. I love to cut my hydrangea and move it around the house…..Here is it to brighten the Monday coffee station!!!!

Investments To Make For A Nicer Time at Home…

There is no place like home…..

Many of us have found ourselves spending more and more time at home over the past few months. Sure, this may largely be at the hands of the pandemic and restrictions may well be loosening now, meaning we can now spend more time out of the house doing things that we used to do. But for many of us, staying in will be a large part of our lifestyles going forwards as things are still relatively uncertain. Chances are, over the past few months, you’ve been making some changes and investments to make your home life more comfortable and enjoyable. If you’re looking for some more, here are a few suggestions that you might like to take into consideration!

Nowadays, fewer and fewer of us have actual television sets in our homes. Instead, many of us are simply using our laptops instead. But when it comes down to it, if you’re going to sit back and watch a film or a series, it’s much more enjoyable on a large screen, rather than your small laptop screen. You may also want to consider what kind of services you have on your television, or, if you’re not going to invest in one, the services that you use on your laptop. You might want to take a look at this IPTV tutorial from Troypoint. You could also consider streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and more.

Cushions and Throws

Sure, we may be in the midst of summer. But during the colder evenings, or on the occasional rainy day, it really is nice to get cuddled up on the sofa. Whether that’s to watch TV, read a book, or have a chat with whoever is with you. Make sure to have plenty of cushions and throws to make yourself as cosy as possible! There are so many different options out there that there’s bound to be something that will not only provide you with comfort, but that will also perfectly fit in with your interior design too!

You’re not going to want bright lights blaring at all times when you’re trying to relax. Why not invest in some nice lamps or lampshades that will give your room a softer and more comfortable glow instead? Lighting really can make all the difference to the atmosphere of any space. So, make sure to take your time choosing it out and to invest in it. Again, there are plenty of options out there that will complement your living space aesthetically – so it’s not simply a practical investment either!

These are just a few small changes that you could make to your living space to make it a nice area to spend time in at the moment. Hopefully, at least one can be added to your home to make everything more enjoyable for now!
