Drum roll please....

Thanks to Erin, Tara and Lolaness from the Eco Etsy Team for all their work on the Eco Etsy Scavenger Hunt.

Rehashing It Over

Have you heard of Rehash? It's a nifty new clothes swapping web site.
Rehashing is a way for you to trade your 'bought that but never wore it', 'wore it once or twice' or 'loved it once but no more' clothing and accessories. You can join groups, socialize, and get fashion as well as green living advice.
It's still fairly new but growing daily with trading posts and membership.

I found this outfit:

Striped Top, Tiffany Eternal Circle
Red Slingback Flats, White Pencil Skirt

Green Pop

Poppytalk handmade is back this month with a green themed market. Of course Reiter8 has a table! I'll be back to showcase favorites - so many to choose from! For now it's off to the hospital for my daughters knee surgery - wish us luck!

O U - Oh, Yeah!

One last quick thing...Check out the lovely prints and painitings from OUOU (oh you, oh you). Laurie is as sweet as her drawings.

As I approached receiving my 500th heart on Etsy I was thinking that it would be nice to send a little something to that person and Laurie turned out to be that person. She grew up on the cape (that's where we used to vacation and where I learned to sail) and she is as enthusiastic as she is talented.

She has some cute bunny tags in her shop - great for those easter gifts or as a note card or place card. Her blog is a good read a peek into her process.

Wahoo, O U!
