Copper is the new gold! Have you heard? It’s all the rage.
With the recent announcement of Pantone’s color of the year, we have been testing different colors that enhance the upcoming “Marsala” tone.
Copper is a perfect pairing with this deep, rich “rust” color. We played around with the new metallic at our American Thanksgiving, in Canada.
This adorable reindeer was from Target! We bought copper spray paint from Lowes and doused the guy in the backyard.
We also played around with tea light candles and an old mustard jar.
Find any glass jar in your house and wrap it with painters tape, as many lines as you please.
Then spray paint!
Let it dry over night before carefully pealing the tape off.
Voila! Metallic striped vase.
Given that it was thanksgiving we painted mini pumpkins.
For Christmas and Hanukkah you can make it more seasonally appropriate.
What about spray painting twigs copper? Or Copper glitter vases? Ohh lala!
How would you enjoy these new metallic colors?

I tend to joke a lot about how much my kids drive me nuts. You know sometimes they do.
But no really, they are the ultimate precious beings in my life.
If I could bottle the love I have for these boys I would do so and slap a funky label on it. The bond that I share with these little people is unimaginable and more special to me then I ever would have dreamed.
The air is crisp, the leaves have turned and Thanksgiving falls one month early in Canada. It’s my favorite time of year to travel back home to visit my family. And what better way to spend a warm, sunny fall day then to go apple picking?
The orchards just outside Toronto are beautiful. Today we visited the Carl Laidlaw Orchard. It was perfection. A hayride, apples upon apples and a pit where you could roast your own hot dogs and corn. The kids had a ball.
The apples were crisp and perfect for snacking on while we were out today. We also brought bags of them home to make pie, crisps and stuffing with.
I have the fondest childhood memories of going apple picking and I hope to be creating the same precious memories for my kids. Talking about the colors of the leaves, recipes we can make together and fun we had with Aunt Mandy and my best friend and her kids…was a perfect way to spend a Sunday in Toronto.
Check back with us tomorrow…we’ll be giving you a glimpse into our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner with a sesame turkey and so much more.
