Halloween is right around the corner, so why not have some fun this weekend with the family? It’s time to get ready for crafts! We found two crafts that we thought would be great for the family, especially the kids! The first project is from Pretty Handy Girl and shows you how to make some fun and decorative pumpkins using fabric and toilet paper. These are great for Halloween decor and home decor. The best part is they can easily be used for Thanksgiving decorations as well. They’re pretty easy to make and look great! Check them out here!
The second project we found will give your house that spooky, festive look on Halloween night. This project is brought to us by eighteen25. This is another simple halloween project that only requires a few milk jugs, a marker, a string of Christmas lights and some creative drawing. Grab some markers and let the kids go to town! They’ll be excited to put them outside and when Halloween night comes the neighbors will know you’re ready for some trick-or-treaters. Get the guide by going here!
Have some family fun this weekend and give yourself those last minute Halloween decorations! Have fun and happy friday!
Flipping through the October issue of Country Living we spotted this beauty and instantly thought of the Catalina Poster Bed. The one featured is actually a hand-carved four-poster by MacKenzie-Dow. It looks exactly like the Catalina Poster Bed and has very similar features. Get the look and make your bedroom look like it’s out of magazine! Happy Friday!
Flipping through the October issue of Country Living we spotted these cloches. They labeled them bell jars, but technically they aren’t. Cloches have a smooth, round top and bell jars tend to have a small knob or handle like feature at the top of the jar so you can lift it up. For decor purposes though, they offer the same look and will look great in your home. You can fill them with coastal accessories like we did or just cover food with them. Either way a cloche with bring a new, fun decor twist to your home. Come on down to the shop and pick one up and take advantage of our sale that’s going on right now too! Can’t make it down to the store? That’s fine! Call us at (949) 497 – 3202 or email us at email@example.com, we’d love to talk to you and figure out a way to get you what you want. Happy Friday!
The pictures that we just got in are taken by Brooklyn, New York based polaroid photographer named Matt Schwartz. Matt showed up in the store one day and asked if we’d be interested in some of his art. We love meeting new artists and checking out their work so of course we were excited to see what he had to show us. Laurie and Jaymi were hooked on his dream-like, coastal photographs the minute they saw them. They knew that these photos were right up Tuvalu’s alley and we had to share them with you guys. Matt has been traveling around the world for last 7 years taking pictures of what he’s seen and experienced. He’s traveled to places like Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Portugal. He’s also been all over the US experiencing our beautiful country and taking pictures along the way. He told us that he’s been traveling up and down the California coast taking pictures and making new friends as well as meeting new artists. His prints aren’t like most normal prints, they are taken with a polaroid camera and then transferred over to a canvas to the size wanted by him or his customer. This allows for his unique style to come through and creates one of a kind pictures. Matt Schwartz’s portfolio boasts more than just the beach and surfing photographs that we love. He’s got a few categories that we’re sure you’ll fall in love with too!
