Magical Lighting

Posted by & filed under Be Inspired, Great Ideas, Our Favorite Things.

We are mov­ing into per­fect tem­per­a­ture for out­door fires. I decided that before it gets too hot we should make the most of our fire pit in the back­yard. Although our out­door space is small, I have tried to make it mag­i­cal for the girls. We have a large tree wrapped with lights, a chair ham­mock, and last sum­mer the girls and… Read more »

Time to Plant Your Veggies

Posted by & filed under Be Inspired, Follow The Hartshorn Family!, Great Ideas, Our Favorite Things.

Living in a Hoboken brown­stone will not stop us from hav­ing a veg­etable gar­den — I use every avail­able out­door space I can find. I was intro­duced to The Farm at Green Village, which is close to Chatham and has a great vari­ety of veg­eta­bles and herbs. Last week­end, we placed pots on every step, planted let­tuce (they like this cooler weather), toma­toes,… Read more »

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Posted by & filed under Our Favorite Things.

When I was grow­ing up in the UK, a good rain­coat was an acces­sory that you could not live with­out. It’s one of the things I splurged on when the girls were lit­tle. I still remem­ber the lovely lit­tle rain­coats and boots — macs and wellies as we call them in Britain — that they wore as tod­dlers. Take… Read more »

A Treat For the Senses

Posted by & filed under Our Favorite Things.

When I walk into our house I like to be greeted by a pleas­ant scent –rather than the smell of last night’s din­ner! Although I love can­dles, dif­fusers are a nice alter­na­tive because they have a con­stant scent. I have placed one in our liv­ing room (which is also the entry­way to our house — brown­stone life) and one in our bed­room.… Read more »
