Last weekend, we snuck away for a few days to visit our friend Chip at his home in Asheville. It was so thrilling to take in the ever-changing fall leaves & experiencing the unique tastes of this one-of-a-kind city. Asheville truly is a place of its own- from the organic restaurants to the retro dance floors- we just couldn’t take all of it in over the weekend!
Just to name a few of the great places we visited- The Admiral, Ultimate Icecream, The Junction, and last but not least, the breathtaking mountains of the Blue Mountain Ridge.
We both decided that getaway trips like the one we experienced definitely need to happen more often. Who lives somewhere cool & wants two visitors? 🙂
I can’t believe it’s already fall. It seems that it was just yesterday that we were celebrating the warm weather and long summer nights. Now, the leaves have started to turn and fall, the temperatures have dropped (thank goodness!), and so fall begins.
Although tomorrow is officially the first day of the season, it has felt perfect all week here in Nashville. I’ve really enjoyed taking in the cooler air and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes (thanks, Starbucks!).
While a new season begins here in the city, so does a new list of personal goals. There’s a lot that I want to accomplish and experience in the next few months, and I am so excited to see if I can achieve them all!
We’re always looking for fun and creative ways to display our favorite things. This project incorporates two of Bethany’s favorite things, jewerly and trees. A jewelry tree is an easy way to add organization and beauty to your room, and it’s also a great way to showcase your unique pieces! All you need to make your very own jewelry tree are the following items:
Bethany used rocks and pebbles in her vase, but the possibilities are endless! A few other ideas we had to add weight to the vase were: pennies, painted rocks, chandelier prisms, marbles, sand, keys and gear parts. Make sure that your vase has enough weight to hold the tree limb upright. Bethany added a little sparkle to the moss by applying glue and glitter. Once the glue had dried, she placed it on top of the pebbles and added the tree limb to the vase. Last and final step: adding your jewelry! It’s up to you to choose what you’d like to display- all gold, all silver, or a mixture of all sorts. Below, you can see Bethany’s pretty tree in her room! Enjoy making your very own!
