My Home for the Holidays

As I mentioned, I recently moved into my South End apartment and I could not love it more. I was so excited to decorate my new sanctuary as I am extremely into the holiday spirit this year.

I even went so far as to make my own wreath. It was the first try so don't judge too harshly. I wanted to do something with all the flowers and berries of the season and have them dry on the wreath. Home Depot was the spot for overall great pricing with the plain wreath at $10 and our tree $38.
I really loved finding the garland below from Target! Only $3!
Ive been collecting Christmas trees for the past few years!

Gift Guide: A Little Luck Never Hurt Anyone

Slowly but surely, I am knocking everyone off my shopping list this year. Sometimes I get stuck and gift ideas like this one always save the day. Target is one of my favorite places on Earth because of little treasures like this horseshoe wall art from West Emory

I just moved in September and this has perfect energy for my new place. It is also pretty perfect to give to someone who may need a little good fortune.

Originally, the story of the horseshoe superstition begins with the story of a blacksmith named Dunstan. The devil came to Dunstan and had him fit his new horseshoes. Dunstan recognized the devil and nailed a horseshoe onto his hoof. The pain allowed Dunstan to chain him and made him swear he would never enter a place that had a horseshoe hung over the door. Some believe that if guests come to a house where a horseshoe is above the door, they must leave by the same door through which they entered or they will take the luck from the horseshoe with them.

There are many other theories:
  • For luck in the New Year, sleep with a horseshoe under your pillow on New Year’s Eve.
  • The crescent shape of the horseshoe can ward off the evil eye.  
  • There is luck in finding a horseshoe where the open space is facing toward you. 
  • Dreaming of a horseshoe will bring good luck. 
  • Some believe a horseshoe hung in the bedroom will keep nightmares away.
