Bee Mine

Give your Valentine the gift of Rapture. The pure, sweet scent of natural beeswax blends with Patchouli and Cassia essential oils to give this candle a stirring, exotic aroma that arouses passion and renews the spirit. It will you make you swoon.

Made by Big Dipper Wax Works, the Rapture candle comes in a beehive-shaped glass holder, along with a set of matches, and it's all packaged within this unique recyclable tube. Burns for over 35 hours--that's a lot of swoon time.

snow day for cows

Everyone is busy clearing snow today, except these girls. They found a nice clear patch where they can bask in the sun.

New! Wire Mesh Cubby and Coat Rack

We just got this Wire Mesh Cubby and Coat Rack in at the shop, and I've already hung one in my daughter's room. If there is anyone who needs help organizing her things, it would be my daughter. She loves it! She's already tucked away her favorite books and things, and her hats and scarves look great on the coat hooks.

Its industrial vintage style offers rustic elegance perfect for any farmhouse, and it features four wire mesh cubbies, so you can store mail, books or bills. There are nine coat hooks, making it ideal for a busy mudroom. The wood shelf has an off-white, distressed finish.

Stop by and check it out.

a call to order

Every now and then I find the very areas of the house that are supposed to help keep us clean get a little messy themselves. A good example of this is under my kitchen sink or my laundry closet. Because they are not in plain view, they tend to get neglected. Well, it doesn’t take much time to get things back in order. I love storing things in tall jars because I can pack more into small areas. Our Numbered Glass Jars are just the thing for storing my Cascade dishwasher pacs, laundry powder and dryer sachets. Our Wire Gathering Baskets always come in handy for cleaning supplies. Here, I’ve tucked away the dusting supplies, making it easy to travel around the house come cleaning day. It’s these little details that make me happy, because I get antsy with clutter and disorganization. Happy cleaning!

white wednesday {no. 28}

Today's white Wednesday is dedicated to...yup, you guessed it...snow! We've been blasted with a blizzard here in New England. While it is beautiful, and the kid in me still gets a thrill about having a snow day, my back is not happy that I just shoveled all the way to the chicken coop. Clearly, we did not think about snow when we built the coop. It feels like a mile from the house. The wood pile is a mile in another direction, so I had to shovel a path to that too. I think we need a family meeting about winter logistics so we can prepare differently next year. Until then, I shall consider my exercise program now includes a lot of upper body work.

P.S. Don't forget to visit Faded Charm for more white Wednesday goodies.
