Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! Here's some last minute love for the eco stockings (felt made of recycled materials) over at RikRak's Etsy shop...
Spotted these numbered hemp/cotton blend napkins in Domino and had to share here. We're a cloth napkin kinda house and having cute numbered ones like these would be perfect to help jog our memory as to which napkin belongs to whom. Love em.
When it comes to planning, I'm an old fashioned gal. Sure, online calendars have their advantages, but give me a pencil and a cute paper planner and I'm a much happier gal. These days, I'm digging the chic patterns of Sarah Pinto's recycled paper and soy-based ink planners. Cute, no?

I love the asymmetrical seams on Nau's recycled fabric puffy vest. If you like, get shopping this weekend...Nau is offering several great promotions now through Monday, December 15:
Get 30% off by entering promotion code “GIVE” in the Order Summary section of the checkout page.
Free ground shipping on orders over $150. (Air shipping uses 6 times more energy than sending by ground!)
Plus, Nau is donating 10% of every sale—up from their usual 2%—to the Partner For Change of your choice. With funding for non-profits freezing up in the chilly economy, it’s a great opportunity to get a great deal and do a lot of good in the process.
Man oh man do I love these Alena Hennessy scarves. The divine patterns are printed with earth-friendly inks on organic cotton and sell for $34 -- a perfect gift price point! -- at ReForm School.
Spotted these fabulously modern and egg-like (with a touch of Brancusi) salt and pepper shakers over on Ecofabulous and had to share them here. They're made with reclaimed poplar and reclaimed walnut and come packaged in a recycled-paper gift box. Available at the ever-wonderful Branch.
Hello, December! It's officially time to turn our minds to Chrismukkah and pumping up the economy, eco-style. I have recently discovered and fallen in love with Organica Deluxe, a website brimming with truly lovely organic, natural, and/or Fair Trade goodies that are packaged in post-consumer recycled tissue paper. I especially love how the site offers numerous search options -- gifts by price range, occasion, recipient, etc -- to make gift hunting that much easier.
Since I naturally go right to the sale section, I quickly stumbled upon this eco-luxe gift combo of a hand-woven, fair trade, pink-rimmed silk scarf (made from silk collected in such a way as to not harm the moth!) and Antica Farmacista peony room spray (made with essential oils). The combo, on sale for $70, includes a donation to breast cancer research.
