Interesting Picks for July

As July comes to a close and we move toward back-to-school season, we thought it would be fun to look at your pins and find out what you loved most about July. If Pinterest is any indication, you spent your July relaxing outdoors, beautifying your home and indulging your senses with wonderful scents. That sounds like a terrific idea to us, so in celebration of your favorites from July, let’s take a look at the month’s most interesting picks and pins. If you’re not yet ready to let go of summer, let these picks inspire you to make August special!

 

Candle-warmerAnything that delights the senses is perfect for summertime’s laid-back feel. Settling into a hammock while drinking something frosty and enjoying the warm breezes is a great way to spend a summer weekend, and one way to bring that lazy summer afternoon feeling indoors is with fragrance. Home fragrance has become a booming business, so it’s no surprise that items such as our Candle Warmers sets are big Pinterest hits. Candle Warmers’ two-piece stoneware melters use light to heat scented wax tablets and send summer-fresh fragrances throughout your home. They’re also great for making the most of scented candles. Unlike candles, these warmers are flameless, so they work well in homes with kids or curious pets. The most popular scents for summer are ocean-fresh aromas, delectable gourmand, or citrus scents and clean linen fragrances.

 

Flamingo-bird-bath

With the heat wave that struck the eastern seaboard in July, the usual ponds and creeks where birds stopped for a drink dried up, leaving them reliant on neighborhood bird baths for a cooling drink. You responded by pinning decorative and creative bird baths to encourage others to take care of their feathered friends. One that got a lot of notice was this  that added a decorative touch to the yard while allowing birds to seek relief from the heat. Flamingos are a classic kitsch lawn ornament, but this version is downright elegant in clear pink glass and metal accents. From hummingbird feeders filled with nectar to squirrel-proof seed feeders, bird feeding stations were popular too. Whether you like to watch native songbirds and hummingbirds from the window or on your deck or patio, supplying them with feeders and baths will encourage them to make your backyard a stopover during migrations.

 

Crayola-Garden-Grow-KitAnything related to gardening was another huge draw on Pinterest. The finest restaurants put a premium on freshness, and so do home cooks today. Cans and boxes are fine for quick meals, but few things satisfy the way a fresh garden-to-table salad will. For veteran gardeners, trellises, watering systems and gardening tools were popular pins, but novice gardeners also got into the spirit by pinning  garden grow kits and container gardens. With a kit, gardening is easy enough for children to help. There’s no better way to persuade a child to eat his or her vegetables than to have them help grow them. Kits aren’t just for kids, though; they also give new gardeners a head start on their first gardens.

 

 

We look forward to seeing what you’re going to pin for August!
