________________________________

I’m the most shiny here (it was so hot out)! Probably too hot for this velvet button down shirt which I got during my lil spring haul. I figured this would be another cute casual thing, maybe for a concert! 🎤  I love chelsea boots & these are my most comfortable. My go-to for when I’m in the city (until I find some dope sneakers). I’d like to blog the kinds of outfits I perform in with my band too! 🍧

Gifts for Gardeners

#46: A Pocket Vertical Garden

Usually made from a recycled geotextile, fabric planters are the easiest way to make an indoor or outdoor ‘green wall’ on a budget.

Look for an option with a waterproof back, so watering doesn’t do damage to the surface on which the garden hangs.

BECAUSE STRIPPERS RECYCLE

Up-cycling Museum Furniture

A cool thing about being a 120 year old museum is that you can find some seriously amazing pieces of furniture in your basement. 

This old cabinet at Carnegie Museum of Natural History once held scientific specimens but has recently been up-cycled  to display merchandise in the new gift store. 

The redesigned store will open in early December and will feature restored dioramas and salvaged furniture as part of a museum-wide effort to continue to be environmentally friendly. 

Stop in for some awesome holiday shopping and take in a bit of museum history.

hand-marbled silk ribbon, 5-pattern variety pack by natalieasis

floating pigments create this marbled look on natalieasis’ silk dupioni ribbons, which are really remnants of larger fabric pieces — i love that the edges are upcycled into gift wrap or hair ribbons rather than being wasted or tossed. such fun colors!
