Birdie's Apothecary

Birdie’s Apothecary

When I launched Birdie’s Hallowe’en last Autumn, it was always my plan to have its sister company, Birdie’s Apothecary, launched as well.  I envisioned both brands complementing each other with an overarching theme of the moody dark aesthetic of Hallowe’en that’s rooted in nature and celebrated at home.  As usual,  however, my plans and ideas are never quite realistic with my time frame (which is why I’m doing this for 2020). Before we ever even moved to the mountains, it was always my dream to make my own apothecary products. …

Christkindlemarket

Salt Lake City has a fun tradition every year of the Christkindlemarket.  We’ve missed it the last few years for various reasons, but made sure to go this year.  It’s only one weekend in December, so you have to make sure it’s on your calendar!  There are tons of vendor booths filled with all kinds of fun holiday crafts and goodies. Our favorite booth this year was one called Simply Swiss that had the most delicious Swiss treats.  Andy and I bought a bag of Bretzeli while we were there. …

I did break down and buy the Christmas table runner…

Winter Wonderland In The Mountains

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, we got about 3 feet of snow.  We came back a little early from Manti because we were worried about the weather.  It’s a beautiful Winter wonderland in the mountains!  Andy used his tractor twice in two days to clear the driveway and help the neighbors out.  We were a little hesitant about purchasing the tractor because it was so expensive, but it’s going to make our lives so much easier up here!  Snow accumulation can add up quickly, and a typical snow blower and shovel…
