That day we celebrate our Mommas

So tomorrow is Mother’s day! Mom’s I must say, are amazing. Watching my mom and my sister elegantly handle all of their responsibilities, makes me that much more excited to be a mom myself!  This little collection makes me think of my mother, and all the mothers out there. Their warm heart and unyielding grace makes for one amazing lady. After getting to finally spend a Saturday doing nothing in particular, I scoured the thrift shops around me and got caught on a vintage rage. Today I was inspired  is eco-friendly products and vintage wonderfulness of course!

Enjoy! And go call your mom if you aren’t with her right now!

Since Earth Day is quickly approaching, I thought it was high time for a feature on sustainable style! Before I get into my finds for the day, I want to introduce you to Summer Rayne Oakes. This beautiful lady is not only an international model, but is also a leading environmental activist. As the worlds first “Eco-Model”  Summer Rayne Oakes wanted to pursue the fashion industry on a quest to clean up our forests and keep the planet alive and well.   For More information on Summer Rayne, you can visit The Eco-Model page, or her home page.

Now to celebrate sustainable style the handmade way, here are, yes, a few Etsy finds that are made from either organic and/or sustainable materials. Enjoy!
