    Store

    What I offer in my store is a reflection of my lifestyle, one that is focused on planet friendly choices: invest in things that are useful, that last, that you love and that don’t harm the planet. In my store is an eclectic ever-evolving selection of favorites + one-of-a-kind finds and limited editions from my studio.

    Love this wild berry plant that rooted itself in a cavity of an old tree I see every day on my walk through the woodland forest. Foraged a basket full of wild golden oyster mushrooms. More about them  @riversedgefarmny  Swipe left to see more of the wildness on my walk this morning.  #wildness   #woodlandforest   #river   #wildberries   #goldenoystermushrooms   #foraging   #fromhollywoodtothehudsonvalley

    Such a wonderful start to the day! As I was making my morning cup of tea and looked out of the wide open kitchen window, having already lit an incense stick and placed it in its holder outside the door (see post from yesterday), I noticed something moving in the grass in the distance. I walked quietly down to where I saw the creature moving and discovered a large snapping turtle! It had wandered up from the river nearby but seemed to be headed in the wrong direction, towards the road. Thankfully it righted itself, turned around and headed back to the river. I’ll be posting in my story another video of it walking along the path, back towards the river.  #livingclosetonature   #thatswhyImovedhere   #fromhollywood   #tothehudsonvalley   #snappingturtle   #tistheseason

    Outdoor Terracotta Incense Holder Just added a new product to my store! I’m obsessed with it and use it every day. I hung one incense holder right outside my kitchen door, so in the morning I can light a sage, desert cedar or sweetgrass incense stick and enjoy the natural scent drifting through the kitchen and into the house. Since it has a small ledge, it also holds another favorite of mine, a Palo santo stick. I made these myself and I don’t have a large amount in stock. I’m hoping to make more after the summer. Click on the link above in my profile to go my website and once you are there, click on the store.  #pw-store-studio   #terracotta   #incenseholder   #handmade   #usefulproduct   #loveusingit   #partofmymorningritual

    Field & Forest In 13 hours, what you see in this photo will be twinkling with countless fireflies. I will venture out then for a walk by the field and into the woodland forest to witness the fireflies lighting up the fern covered forest floor. Can’t wait to do this! Several of the 2,000 firefly species are struggling due to habitat loss, increased artificial light and pesticide use. How we can help them: *Have an unruly yard. *Build a small woodpile. *Plant native trees and grasses *Avoid pesticide use *Turn your outdoor lights off at night Share this info so that fireflies can keep sharing their light✨  #firefliesforever   #oneofnaturesmanytreasures   #magicalfireflies   #lightupthenight

    The Fireflies are back✨ Last night,  @riversedgefarmny  and the wild grasses filled field next it were twinkling with fireflies. It was beautiful. Attract fireflies to your garden by leaving areas unattended, wood piles for them to live in and keep pesticides out of the garden and surrounding areas. Photo by  @danielkordan  via  @colossal

    Multi-Use Bathtub Drying the first batch of lemon verbena from my medicinal garden and thyme from the vegetable garden. Wash them in cool water and lay the individual cuttings to dry on a cloth kitchen towel. Once they are dry, they are ready to be bundled, wrapped with string and hung upside down to dry in a well ventilated spot and out of direct sunlight. More info to follow! Have a great weekend!  #lifeinasmallhouse   #useanyspacethatisfree   #bathtubsaregoodforsomethings   #dryingherbsforexample

    Morning Walk by the river Who did I surprise by the beach this morning… Beauties resting on a fallen tree. A merganser mother and her four babies. Next week, at this same beach by my house, I’ll be harvesting a little more clay from the river, before it melts away.  #countrylife   #lifeonariver   #changeseveryday   #wildducks   #merganser

    A peek at my house, through the crabapple, Norway maple, hydrangea and wisteria.  #thenookny   #home   #intentionalliving   #smallhome   #livingwithless   #livingwithwhatIlove 

When Time magazine named me a new Green Pioneer in 2009, I had just launched my first online eco friendly general store in Los Angeles, and an online quarterly Almanac Newsletter about everything positive going on in the environment. I also authored the book LOLA Lots of Love Always, about how to live a sustainable lifestyle and make healthy choices that are good for you and the planet. Although targeted to young women, it ended up appealing to all age groups.

As my life and work evolved over the years, my dream was increasingly about living a simpler lifestyle closer to nature, hence my move to the Hudson Valley in Upstate New York, where I could still continue my work, have a much larger garden, woods to wander in and be the best steward I can be of the land I now call home.

Now, I have a new store: Priscilla-Woolworth-Store-Studio, which continues to reflect my lifestyle: acquiring things that are useful, made to last, and don’t harm the planet.

My “larger” garden became a mini organic farm, River’s Edge Farm, where I grow enough food that I am able to donate a portion to a food pantry called the Recovery Kitchen in Hudson, New York. I also sell wild foraged and grown produce to an organic community market in Philmont, New York.

The journey continues.
