Macrame Plant Hangers

We are loving the laid back boho style for summer, and these macrame plant hangers are just the ticket. They add some great texture to any décor and these colors are just the vibe we are looking for. Bath Garden Center and Nursery in Fort Collins has a fantastic collection of macrame in great summer hues, ranging from $19 to $40 for most styles. You will probably need more than one! Send your NOCO Faves (with a picture, please, and where we can find your Fave) to Letters@NOCOStyle.com, and we will share them with our readers. Also, tag us...

Downtown Love

I am a shopper. I love all kinds of shopping (except for a car; that’s a process I don’t have the patience for). I like window shopping, online shopping, clothes shopping, home shopping, electronics and gadgets. I just love NEW. This might not be my best character trait. But shopping for me has changed. The older, more responsible me is less about quantity, and more about quality and a little bit of responsibility. When I think about how trends in shopping have changed, part of me wonders if it is a maturing of society, not just myself, that has...

Spring Insights

As we creep out of restrictions (and possibly put them to rest this month), I am thinking a lot about how we move on from the pandemic. Some, like me, are ready to be done and to think about this as a bad dream. Others are, and will continue to be, scared for a while with their or their loved ones’ health still forefront in their minds. Still others will be emerging with deeper scars, the sort that are not easily seen and may stay with them much longer than COVID-19’s hold. Isolation has been as damaging to our...

Day-Tripping in Timnath

By Angie Grenz You only need to pause for a minute and observe the buzz surrounding Timnath to know that its growth is only just beginning. Family and upscale neighborhoods are popping up all around the little community and the Harmony exit onto I-25 is in constant use, both as a gateway into Fort Collins and for access to Costco and Walmart on the east side of the interstate. Another telltale sign would be Timnath’s city building, fire station and planned police department. All getting upgrades from their humble beginnings. And while a trip to Timnath may not pose...

Camping with the Kids

By Dan England My kids are hardy. They enjoy camping. They will even sleep in a tent. They are also teenagers. Those traits can clash sometimes, as you’ve probably guessed. They still want their screen time. They still get hungry every 12 seconds. Most of all, they don’t like being uncomfortable. Yet, we’ve had many great times together sleeping on the ground. How do I do it? Well, I’m a genius, read every parenting manual and my kids love me dearly. Also, I have some tips for you, which probably have more to do with my success. Pair your...
