When it comes to cocktails, we tend to call on our old favorite, Sallie’s Greatest Jams, for some tips and tricks. Of course we’re thrilled that she has recently released a line of simple syrups to make creative cocktails even easier! We’re currently in love with the Strawberry + Basil, and of course the super tasty Strawberry + Basil Margarita that can be made with it!

2 oz. tequila

1 ½ oz. Strawberry Basil syrup

1 oz. lime juice

Add all ingredients to shaker with crushed ice. Shake and strain into rimmed glass. Garnish with strawberry & fresh basil leaf.

TIME TO GLAM UP YOUR FALL ACCESSORIES

Here are a couple that we are lusting over. View all here.

We’re thrilled to introduce Lexie Armstrong Watercolors on Taigan! 

Lexie Armstrong is a painter who lives in Franklin, TN.  Having traveled and studied abroad extensively, she has settled with her family on a horse farm where she paints and raises her three boys, chickens and horses and works in her organic garden.

Why we chose Lexie Armstrong Watercolors:

Lexie’s eye for beauty and detail paired with her fluid style made her the perfect fit on Taigan. In addition to observing and recording the local flora and fauna around the farm and in her garden in Tennessee, this series reflects farm life interacting with “wildlife” in a whimsical way.

Veggie Tales

Seems like vegetables are all the rage these days… with everything from Farm Shares to “Meatless Mondays” we couldn’t help but hop on board with these festive veggie finds.

Is there anything more adorable then these napkins embroidered with different vegetables? Available as a set of 12 assorted veggies, these are sure to be a treasured family heirloom in no time.

This acorn squash bowl is perfect for serving yummy fall soups. It was molded from an actual acorn squash, making it all the more realistic!

This leaf platter with an asparagus handle is the perfect accessory for serving appetizers. We love the fresh green color and charming design.

Skip the meatballs in your next batch of spaghetti and opt for this delicious Butternut Squash Sauce instead. You won’t even miss the meat!

This Salsa Trio Set is the perfect way to serve your favorite salsas, so you don’t have to pick just one. Ole!

 

That’s a Wrap

Fashion September 23rd, 2014 — by:

With fall comes cooler weather, so grab a scarf or a wrap and cozy up for a night on the town or gathered round the fire.

Glamourpuss NYC’s Cashmere and Fur scarf is the definition of Luxe.

A. Barclay sells lovely scarves for an even better cause. With every purchase A. Barclay buys an item from a Tanzanian for a Tanzanian.  Cashmere for a cause? We’re in.

This silk ikat wrap is the perfect accessory to dress up an otherwise boring ensemble. We love the different shades of blue that make up this rich look.

Yeohlee’s Silk Tubular Scarf is dip dyed and black in the middle. The scarf is textured and pleated with silver-grey twisted yarn fringes on both ends.

This silk mesh scarf with cotton blend lace trim is versatile yet a one of a kind item. It is wide enough to use as a wrap, yet light enough to wear around the neck.
