Gift Wrap 1

Three of your best gift wrapping friends:
1. Brown paper gift wrap. You can buy it in a roll, or just re-purpose those brown grocery store bags.
2. Twine, hemp chord, yarn, or raffia--these are all GREAT choices for tying up that final bow.
3. Organic material from the great outdoors: tree branches, leaves (if there are any left!), and red holly berries. These are great pieces to intertwine with the final wrappings of your gift.

Check out all of the unique and creative ideas for wrapping holiday gifts that SAS Interiors has to offer. And we also have a great Pinterest board all about gift wrap.  Last but not least, be sure to stop by Wishful Living to put a wonderful gift in your beautiful gift box this week!

It is that time of season when a scarf is a treasured accessory to any outfit and helps to keep you both stylish and warm.  As I walk the streets of Berthoud and pass many trendy ladies wearing scarves, I can't help but think how awesome it is to work at Wishful Living where a variety of scarves are sold for amazing prices to meet the stylish needs of women from all walks of life.
Covered in Scarves

For instance, the Pashmina Scarves in our store are a great buy.  These beautiful scarves come from Nepal.  They are so soft, delicate and come in a variety of colors to choose from.  Whether you chose to dress up an outfit with a bold solid print red scarf or perhaps one with intricate designs, you will be certain to fall in love with these scarves!

Beautiful, soft, woven scarves in a variety of colors come from Guatemala and are available as well.  These scarves are great for tying in various ways whether you chose to braid a scarf on one side or simply warp it around your neck.  There are so many fun colors to choose from, I often have a hard time deciding which scarf to wear for the day.  They are so comfortable and warm.

Wishful Living also offers a variety of light weight summer scarves.  I imagine these scarves would be perfect for tying in your hair.  With fun prints such as roses, dragonflies and butterflies that come in many different colors, these scarves are bound to turn some heads and get you a few compliments.  A wonderful woman came into the store the other day, and said she doesn't feel dressed completely unless she is wearing a scarf with her outfit. Scarves dress up any piece of clothing and add the extra pizazz we all adore.

Perhaps you could purchase a scarf to tie to your bag or luggage?  Does your loveable dog need a scarf to strut his/her stuff while going for a walk in the park? Scarves can also adorn our tables and chairs creating a unique décor for any household.  These beautiful scarves could be hung on a rod in a kitchen window to create a beautiful valance look and let just the right amount of light in.  The possibilities are endless as to what you can do with a scarf!

So as the winter months are approaching us, be sure that you have a few great scarves in your house to wear or decorate with. Come visit us at Wishful Living and see the wide variety of scarves offered throughout the store.  There are so many creative uses for scarves!  What is your favorite way to wear or use a scarf?

paint-basketThese large baskets were handcrafted in Ghana, Africa and lately they are seen EVERYWHERE, and with a multitude of uses! Some of our favorite uses for these baskets (yes, you can get them at Wishful Living):

1. Load up your basket with your favorite arts and crafts supplies and pick a sunny spot on the porch. These baskets are sturdy and can hold a lot. I thought the addition of a bottle of wine would be wonderful too!

2. When considering new bathroom decor, these baskets are quite attractive for storing extra guest towels.

3. Heading to a party empty-handed? Fill your basket with your favorite local brew and a couple of glasses to bring to the party!

4. If you can’t decide on a piece of pottery to house your plant, you can put the pot inside a basket to add some color to your home.

5. Tote around your vegetables from the market.

6. If you need to organize your winter garments, these baskets make an attractive disguise!

These African baskets can be found at Wishful Living in beautiful, downtown Berthoud, Colorado.  Come and get yours before they’re all gone!
