This pretty lanyard is made up of beige and pewter colored glass pearls and accented in gold for a chic lanyard that will dress up any outfit! Available at Miss Val’s Creations.
I love when I find a great piece of used clothing. So much pollution goes into 1 garment of clothing during production and shipment so it makes me feel good to make this type of green purchase. I know used clothing creeps some people out, but not me! My work wardrobe typically includes a little jacket. These staples are great with pants, skirts and jeans so I always get my money’s worth.
I found this sweet green jacket on eBay. It’s label is Kay Unger which I had never heard of. So when doing my research I discovered this is a somewhat luxurious label. Her jackets are sold in the stores I can not afford like Saks, Neimans, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, etc. The lining is 100% silk! I have never owed a garment with such lining….it is heavenly! It had elegant touches too!
Vintage Cutting Board
Here is another green purchase I recently made. I purchased this cutting board as an after thought for Jim’s birthday (a gift that included wine and cheese)! This is from Dave of handmadebydave on Etsy.
Dave carved this cheese board from oak of an old barn in his home state of Virginia. What I love most is that the wood has been reused to create a timeless, useful item!
His newest handmade additions are K-Cup holders!
Dave also carries wine stoppers featuring handblown glass.
The shop also includes great other items like this Arabian coffee pot.
Or these amazing mother of pearl butter knives.
Stop by Dave's shop for unique handmade and vintage items!
I hope you all had a great first week of 2012 and wish you many more!!! As always, thank you for stopping by. ~Val
