Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day from the Fashion, Design and Lifestyle team. We had a special challenge to create something Earth friendly. As a global team we may live in different places, have different customs, speak different languages. But together we have a common thread. A likeness. We all have the same home. Her name is Earth and she is beautiful. She needs care just like anything else. It is our responsibility to care for our home. To band together and nuture and love her. This wonderful global team has created some stunning items that are eco-friendly, though provoking, inspirational, and artisitic. So today, even if it's only for 5 minutes, stop what you are doing and look around you. Breathe in the air, glance at the trees, marvel all that is living around you. Be thankful for your home, treat her kindly. This lush painting is by Furiousdreams, proving that she does indeed dream in color!





First up we have a lovely market bag from Thirdfloor designs. This is perfect for trips to the grocery. Just say no to those plastic bags.

This stunning vest from Allthingspretty, so bohemian! I love it very in fashion, and what a great use for all those old school doilies!

All the girls were raving over this awesome redo of a t-shirt from Lovetosew. Very cool! Release your inner wild child!
