Dried oranges add that touch of whimsy, vintage charm that everyone wants this time of year. Not only are they an easy craft, it’s extremely inexpensive! Use your dried orange slices as cute attachments to gifts, add a ribbon and make an ornament, or string them up for a garland look. So many possibilities!Read More
It’s that time of year! Tis’ the season for holiday parties and get togethers, all of which require some sort of a gift for the host/hostess. Host/hostess gifts are often times purchased last minute, which is completely understandable during all the holiday madness. But this year, why not plan ahead and purchase something truly special (and useful!) for your favorite party thrower?! We all love to receive wine and champagne, but this year, let’s get a little more creative and impress THEM with your gift giving skills. I know they would appreciate it!Read More

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do more is write here! I have so many ideas and thoughts about how Foraged Home should be (and will be in the future!) and one of them involves the journal! I truly enjoy sharing my thoughts and writing them all down in one spot for you to read and gather information and inspiration for your home.
This first idea is a pretty simple one - a “5 Things” series. It’s pretty straightforward, but I like the idea of sharing “5 Things” at a time about a particular topic. Whether it be recipes, paint colors, home decor tips, etc. I think it’s a pretty fun and concise way to share information. Let’s dive in to our very first 5 Things post…Read More
Hello friends! It’s been a couple months since I’ve made time to journal, but here I am. :) I’m hoping to do a lot of more this in the future. I have a lot of ideas and projects that I want to share, just need the time and energy to make it happen!
You may have noticed that we launched our Autumn 2018 look book last week, but if not, you can take a look at all of the photos in this post.Read More
