One of my all time favorite design aesthetics is the ‘country home’ look. I just think it’s so welcoming and cozy and it always makes me feel right at home. Basically anything that incorporates wood, straw, and mason jars make me smile. I found The Back Porch Etsy shop while searching for some fall goodies and I instantly fell in love. It’s filled with sweet candy jars, treat bags, handmade cards, and wood crafts. Brandi’s products would make the sweetest gift to a neighbor, teacher, or friend and she’s absolutely wonderful to work with. Here’s a little bit about her:
I am a mom of 4, and I have been crafting for over 10 years. This is my outlet and I love to create! My mind never stops (sometimes that is not good when you want to sleep) and I am thankful for friends that help, especially with so many ideas and so little time. I also love to cook, and bake. In my shop I had a small bakery in the back, and that is so fun to watch people faces and have them love what you do. I grew up at the feet of my grandmother and love to watch all the things she would sew and bake. I know I get my inspiration and drive from her. I love what I do, and I feel very blessed to be able to have something to do that I enjoy so much.
My favorite things in The Back Porch are the gift bags. They make me want to bake up a fresh batch of cookies, put them inside, and deliver them to a friend! In my life, it’s all about presentation so a cute gift bag always makes me smile.
This one is my absolute favorite. It’s made from a brown paper bag embellished with ribbon, tulle, scrapbook paper, and a paper flower. Isn’t it just charming? I love it!
Brandi also makes these adorable magnet boards. I would hang this in my kitchen and fill it with all of my daily reminders!
I just love her handmade cards. This Halloween themed one makes me smile!
This sweet Spooky candy jar would look so cute on my kitchen counter!
