West Elm + Etsy + The Inspired Room {Etsy Pop Up at West Elm!}

West Elm + Etsy + The Inspired Room {Etsy Pop Up at West Elm!}


You guys, I’m SUPER excited to let you in on a big secret involving West Elm & Etsy & ME! EEEK, don’t you hate it when you have to keep a secret? I do. So glad I can finally tell you!

I have had the amazing opportunity to round up some local area artists for an Etsy Pop Up Shop that will take place in just a couple of weeks at West Elm in Seattle!

What is a Pop Up Shop?  Each of the selected Etsy sellers will be setting up their homegoods, accessories, stationery and more to sell at the West Elm store in Seattle on November 9th 1-6PM.

It’s a party! And you are invited.

FUN? YES!!! There will also be a Smilebox, DJ and snacks for the event.

This is an amazing opportunity for these wonderful Etsy shop owners to grow their businesses, and very fun for those of us who get to meet the artists, attend the party and SHOP!!

I’m honored to be a part of this fantastic event and LOVE West Elm for making this type of connection and promotion possible for these wonderfully creative artists and entrepreneurs. And I’m thrilled to be able to share these Etsy shops with all of you as well! You can see the complete list at the end of this post.

Below is a cool video showcasing another pop up event that was held at West Elm in Los Angeles, curated by designer Emily Henderson.

If you are local or want to fly on over :-), I hope you will come join the fun! My girls will be there, too, and we’d love to meet you!

I’ll be back shortly for the final few days of my Falling for Fall series! If you are new to the series, you may want to check out a few of my favorite projects: my Fall Family Room, my tasty pumpkin square & cream cheese frosting recipe, my backyard DIY Firepit or my cheery Fall Front Entry! 

Smells Like Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon

Smells Like Sweet Vanilla CinnamonI love for my house to smell delicious in every season.

I’d prefer no one makes it smell bad for any reason. Ever.

It’s kind of a deal breaker for me.

In the spring and summer, I love the scent of citrus or lemongrass or jasmine wafting through the house.

My summer Anthro-inspired diffuser blend basically smells like Heaven on a summer day.

But if Heaven has a fall season, which I certainly believe with all my heart it will :-), it will probably smell like vanilla. Or cloves. Or cinnamon and orange. Or probably some warm and delicious combination of all of them.

Ideally, the scent would be from flowers in the spring and baking in the fall.

I used to scent my home with candles. Once I made the switch to essential oils for health purposes, I started experimenting with combinations of oils to diffuse in memory of some of my favorites!

One of my favorite fall candles, which I shared back in August (I got started early haha), smelled so divinely cozy.

But you’ll be pleased to discover I have an equally cozy and nearly identically essential oil diffuser blend version, below!

Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon Diffuser Blend

– A couple drops of Stress Away (VANILLA and lime!)
– A drop of Cinnamon Bark
– A drop of Nutmeg

(Try more drops of each in a larger space or for stronger scent)

***Order the essential oils and diffusers I recommend here. ***

I recommend Young Living oils because it is the brand I trust for my family, grab a starter kit and learn about our wellness community here!

I can’t wait for you to take a big SNIFF and see what I mean about it smelling divine!

Dreaming about all the cozy scents got me a wee bit excited about Christmas, which in case you haven’t noticed yet,  is only like 68 days away if you want to plan ahead a little.

PS. Add Young Living’s Christmas Spirit oil to your order so you’ll be ready!

You are welcome.
