2016 Halloween Apothecary

October means one thing around here... Halloween Apothecary.
No bottle is safe from a new home made label and the Mod Podge.

It is in the same spot every year. Some things change, some don't. We have grown from our few bottles that we started making in 2010 to so many that our Apothecary stock has outgrown the cupboard and spilled everywhere.

My Garden Shed

Three years after finding the 100+ year old wood, and many years after hoping I would someday have my own shed, she is finally a reality and I love her. I can see her from my kitchen window and love seeing the dormer from our ensuite upstairs. The stained glass window in the dormer came from a 105 year old house in Vernon, BC which is one of our favourite places to visit in the summer.

Halloween Mantle 2014

I hope you were sitting down... it has been a while since I've dusted off the keyboard for a post. Halloween has me inspired, as always. I'm thinking this may be my most favourite mantle of all. Plain and simple. We started with a well aged window, appropriately dusty. Once cleaned and the remaining three pains of glass were Windexed, it was anchored to the wall just to be safe for the upcoming Halloween party.
