Cat (from olivebites) is giving away a pair of Lisa’s earrings – a gorgeous pair created from a vintage quilt and sandwiched between micro-thin glass, soldered with silver solder and finished with an antiqued patina (hurry – the contest ends at midnight tonight). These are one of a kind! I can attest to their coolness – I have ordered 2 of her pins as gifts and a pair of earrings for myself- they are truly amazing. And, just about five minutes ago, I ordered another pair for me! Check them out and enter the contest while you are there.
Cat definitely has a great eye and a way with words. After reading this post via ScoutieGirl, I thought to myself, they really have something here. “Mindful Spending” is what Tara calls it. It will give you a lot to think about, especially the next time you are shopping for a (hopefully) meaningful gift.
I think this is what the world needs right now. Whether you are buying fresh food, going out to eat or shopping, think about where it comes from and who got it to you. This isn’t the last you’ll hear of this…spread the word and do your part – remember – what goes around, comes around.
