Butternut brooklyn

Butternut Brooklyn

I’m in the market for new kitchen goods and I LOVE these cutting boards! They’re made by Butternut Brooklyn and are made from North American Walnut  and are a mix of heartwood and sapwood for a gentle and satisfying contrast. They’re all shaped by hand and the grain has been raised, sanded, and hand waxed with a custom, food-safe oil and beeswax mixture.

Very fabulous.

I stumbled across this shop tonight and just had to do a write up because these were too fabulous to pass up. Made by Agnes Margaret, these cutting boards would look amazing in any kitchen. Rustic, handmade goodness made from reclaimed wood in Chicago, Il.

I love the fact that the materials were reclaimed as well as being a material found in the US and not outsourced. Love it.

A good thing to remember on Earth Day because our Earth is awesome! We (and mostly corporations) need to be reminded to take care of it and not act like parasites upon the place that lends us life. Take care of the Earth and it’ll take care of us, destroy it like we’re currently doing and our time is limited.

Funny how we claim to be so smart yet the things we do to our planet are so stupid.

I found Irena Levkovich, the artist behind her gorgeous felted clothing line, on Etsy tonight. After browsing Irena’s shop, you can see her immense talent that comes shining through in the clothing that she creates. I found this video of one of her fashion shows in DC, and it’s totally worth a look see. There’s music playing so you might want to turn down your speakers if you’re at work.

She has a wide array of clothing that she fabricates and her work is amazing. Stop by her shop to see just what I’m talking about.

It’s Easy Being Green: Green Is the new Black

It was a very nice surprise to wake up to a Google Alert pointing me straight to this article that I was mentioned in. I can’t tell you how honored I felt to be mentioned along with such awesome people that are for the Green Movement. I’m happy to see that designers are having such a great influence on the people that buy their goods hopefully planting the seed of being kinder to our planet and it’s diminishing resources. Everyone can make a difference no matter how small your business is and this is what that article proved to me. I have no idea who decided to include me in this wonderful article but I would thank them with a big hug if I could. This not only made me feel like the little steps that I’m taking are making a difference but that I can move towards my greater goals without fear of feeling like it’s all for naught.

So awesome.

I love concrete because of the many ways you can put it to use plus it’s a very eco friendly material. These concrete vessels are just fabulous. Made by Obelisk, they have an earthy, old worn quality to them that I absolutely love. Definitely on my wish list.
