Men’s Tees For Chicks Who Rock

Step 1: Raid your dad’s/brother’s/boyfriend’s/friend’s closet. Any men’s tee will work! For this post we borrowed some vintage Harley Tees from our friends over at Duck and Cover.

Step 2: Layer on some jewelry! Apply generously!

Step 3: Find the balance. To give your look a touch of femininity, add a red lip, a unique belt, large brimmed hat, or tassel shawl.

Step 4: Let your inner lioness out and let those tresses go wild! Flip your head over, give your hair a good spray, and rough it up. You didn’t just roll outta bed this fabulous, but you’d like for people to think you did!

Step 5: Get on with yo bad self!

A Small Canyon Gathering

Terribly sorry that we haven’t posted in quite some time, life is crazy! Lauren and her husband Daniel recently got back from an incredible vacation to Switzerland (just wait til you see her pics! *drool*), and my husband Jared and I have been keeping busy with our new Bluetick Coonhound puppy Tucker who we rescued! But don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about our lovely blog followers!

A few months ago we had a small gathering with our closest friends full of food, laughter, music, games, and tasty homemade desserts! We are so thankful to have such genuine, loyal, caring, people in our lives. We are better together, and we couldn’t be more thankful to the Lord for bringing such joy into our lives through these friendships!

Here are some photos from the night in our cozy cottage in Modjeska Canyon!

For anyone that knows me I’m a total DIY-freak! I love the color Indigo and wanted to incorporate it into our table décor somehow, so I ran to Joann’s fabric store, cut a few napkin squares of a luscious indigo cotton fabric, and splattered bleach on the squares. After giving them a quick rinse in the washing machine, and a bounce in the dryer, we had beautiful cloth napkins!

PM-012

I really wanted a “living” table centerpiece, loaded up with fresh flowers and veggies. After browsing my local Sprouts, I came home with some fat artichokes, mushrooms, and long, soft, purple brush flowers. I found some moss from Michael’s Craft Store to use as filler, and grabbed some mismatched bottles and vases around the house. Lastly, living in the canyon, there’s plants/bushes/trees everywhere…like they’re literally taking over our house (which I love). I went for a quick walk around the cottage and gathered all kinds of greens, berry branches, pinecones, and twigs, to complete the look.

Here’s a peek around our living room. The vintage American flag is one of my favorite antiques we’ve collected. We found it folded up in the corner of an antique shop and got it for a steal of $40! It’s definitely been through some wear and tear, I’m sure it holds some incredible stories and secrets. It’s only got 48 stars on it which I think is pretty cool too! I’m an avid thrifter, so almost everything else you see is from various antique or thrift stores. Our coffee table is a child’s wooden toy box, with some tattered Aesop Fables books on top. You can’t see it so well, but the chair on the far right is my favorite sitting spot. It’s a faded yellow velvet parlor chair that had all sorts of rips in it, so we got it for $15! We put a sheepskin on the seat to spruce it up a bit.

I am a strong supporter of homemade goods and crafts, so naturally I had to buy the adorable mountain pillow you see on our couch from Three Bad Seeds! It’s my favorite pillow in our house! I want like a million more, they’re SO cute!

PM-039

Almost my entire mom’s side of the family is Comanche, so as long as I can remember, we’ve owned and acquired Native/Comanche items here and there. I’m really proud of my heritage, and enjoy collecting Comanche crafts and different goods from various tribes (don’t buy the fake crap from Urban Outfitters, support your local tribal artisans!). Most of it has been accumulated over the years from the powwows we attend every few months. PM-034

One of the hawk feathers in the jar on the left was awarded to my deceased uncle by our tribe, for special services. It’s very dear to me. The other is from one of the turkeys that live down the street haha! PM-035

As you can see we have a ton of geodes all over our house! I have been collecting geodes and gems for a while now, and turn them into living decorative vessels by adding an airplant. They look like little meteorites that have delicate green aliens growing from their glistening caverns. They’re a unique decorative piece for a coffee table or can be used as a bookend, and make the perfect gift for that one friend with the black thumb! Check them out in my Etsy shop here: Mineral&Sage

Gold-Leaf Girl

(Hannah) + I’ve been feeling really crafty with gold-leaf lately, brushing its flaky goodness onto just about everything. This week, sweet Jenna from my high school Life Group Bible study agreed to be my guinea pig for a fun little film experiment. We pinned live flowers in her hair, and brushed gold leaf on her eyelids and eyebrows. All photos were taken on my vintage Sears film camera. Enjoy! +

DIY Gilded Animal Parade

M33A6003aHey there crafty ladies, we’ve missed you! Sorry we’ve been neglecting posting, we’ve been going through a busy season of life!

Today’s DIY project was super fun for us, and we’re so excited to share it with you!  We love eclectic and unique art, housewares, and décor, so we loved giving these little critters a flashy glow. We’re bringing these children’s toys outta the toy box and into the design world! Talk about evolution!

Here’s what you’ll need! (We found everything at Michael’s Craft Store!)  :

1) A crisp white frame. With white matting (8×10)

2) Gold spray paint

3) Small, plastic, animal figurines

4) A hot glue gun and glue sticks

5) A drop cloth to catch rouge spray paint droplets (we used a trash bag!)

6) Sponge brushes for touchups

7) An X-Acto knife

M33A6020

Step 1: Use the X-Acto knife to cut the tail end off of each animal figurine

M33A6032

Step 2: Place the figurines on a drop cloth or plastic, outdoors, spaced apart. Allow ample time for your figurines to dry before turning them over to spray the other areas.

M33A6036

Step 3: Spray! M33A6061

Step 4: Map out where you want to glue your figurines. Our frame was 8x10in so we spaced them horizontally at 2, 4, and 6 inches. And then vertically at 2.5, 5, and 7.5 inchesM33A6081 M33A6086Step 5: Glue! You only need a little bit, smaller than a dime size. Allow the hot glue to set for about 10 seconds after it hits the paper otherwise you’ll melt your animal! Gently attach your animal figurine and hold it there for 25 seconds.

M33A6124

The finished product! Lauren’s husband LOVES dinosaurs and sharks, so naturally he was thrilled to come home to our creation! We love the shadows each animal casts!M33A6130a

Happy crafting! xoxo

Big Sur

Hannah – Recently my husband and I had the opportunity to spend some time together on vacation in Big Sur for our 3 year anniversary! Here’s a peek into what I packed!

We stayed at an incredible place called “Treebones” Eco Resort. Treebones sits nestled among a lush mountainside overlooking miles of the Pacific. The view is INCREDIBLE, but what you really pay for is the exclusivity and peacefulness. Every morning we awoke to the soft barking of sea lions in the distance, among the sweet songs of California song birds. Treebones is completely off the grid. For electrical needs they utilize clean burning micro turbines developed in California. All excess energy is recycled and used to heat the pool/spa and bathroom floors. Treebones serves fruits and veggies from their on-site garden, and supports local growers. Anything not eaten, becomes compost or chicken meal.  An eco-traveler can choose from a variety of accommodations; yurts, treehouses, campsites, or even a human-sized bird nest! We stayed in a Sibley tent, but I would recommend any of the accommodations at Treebones, each is a unique experience! Treebones is the perfect vacation spot for those looking to relax while reducing their carbon footprint!

Big Sur is literally the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. Add it to your bucket list if you have yet to experience it!

IMG_5183 IMG_5188 IMG_5226 IMG_5235

Thank you Treebones! We’ll be back soon!
