Sexy Eco Travel Mug

Are you bored with your ordinary travel mug?  The Therm-O Terra vessel by aquaovo is so sexy and eco-friendly.  This eco-thermal glass vessel can be used for hot or cold drinks.  It even has a removable stainless steel tea strainer.  I really love this new take on the travel mug!

What makes the Therm-O Terra eco-friendly?
  • Lead free and BPA free
  • Eliminates the use of disposable bottles and cups

All winged out { Friday FUN Find }

I'm in LOVE with modern, over-sized, high back wing chairs - they are so dramatic and fun!  Several weeks ago I spotted one with a script alphabet fabric at T.J. Maxx, then a few days later I noticed a similar chair in NBC's Revenge.  Then I found a few more...  I would love to see this "Loren" chair from Vielle and Frances covered in one of my fabrics OR maybe I will create a new fabric with some sort of script!  Better yet, I may even design my own high back wing chair!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I know it looks good, but DON'T eat it!

I ran across a new website that I LOVE - It is called livingreen - They sell products for a healthier lifestyle.  I love finding new eco-friendly sources!  While browsing the store I came across eco-dough - it is made with natural extracts.  It has such great natural colors - it's the perfect Spring gift.  I wish I new about it years ago - When my son was 2 or so, I plopped a handful of play dough (store bought not homemade) in front of him at the table.  I turned around and when I turned back he had eaten a big hunk out of it.  I failed to tell him it wasn't food :)

What makes eco-dough eco-friendly?
  • handmade with natural & organic fruit, plant, and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, beets, blueberries, carrots, paprika, purple sweet potato, red cabbage and spinach, flour, salt, cream of tartar, organic rosemary oil, vitamin E oil, soybean oil, coconut oil, potassium sorbate and citric acid. **sounds good enough to eat!
  • non-toxic
  • if it becomes dry just add a few drops of olive oil and rework
