Yesterday T and I planted some seeds. I would have used the fabulous newspaper seed pockets, but I had these left over and we are still trying to 'reuse' and 'recycle'. So, I am using plastic because we have it. Although, we didn't plant nearly enough, so once we start more, I will make the newspaper cups. T is almost three, and she did such a nice job. There is a reverence in small children for delicate things. There is also a complete lack of respect and ability to listen! So the two combined into a very even balance and we were able to get the job done together. It will be nice to some green sprouts start to shoot up, and I know T will just think it's amazing!
Today I am on the hunt. There was a pair of Simple Eco Sneaks in the current catalog from Eddie Bauer. I just think they are neatest thing! I am really making an attempt at buying organic, green or made in the USA. A combination of all three is the ultimate find. These are not made in the USA, but they are about as earth friendly as you can get in a pair of sneakers. The Eddie Bauer catalog had a 20% off coupon, but if I buy through the catalog, the entire discount gets eaten up in the shipping charges! ($7.95 for a pair of sneakers!!) We have an outlet store not too far from here so I am going to check them out. The coupon is good there too.
Above is a high res scan I made from a 1887 book on etiquette for you. The forms are fun to use in collage work or for scrapbooking backgrounds.. (jsut right click and save it..)
I don't think Blogger comments are working very well.. I have found on other blogs I have to click on the time of the post, then click to leave a comment.. is anyone else having a problem?
