How about orange and pink...

...for Christmas

Every year I go back to this post about how to make a gift bow from How About Orange. This year I wanted to make a big pink bow for a teacher gift. BTW if you haven't tried Cadbury Fingers you really should - delicious. While there I couldn't help but noticed a new tutorial, How to make 3D paper ball ornaments, so much fun. I ended up going with pink and orange for the bow too as the ball looked so great.

I had a helper while taking the photo who just HAD to hold the ball

New vintage charm necklaces

I made some charm necklaces for the little one and I thought it would be fun to offer our favorites over at the Two Green Chickens shop.

"Do Well By Doing Good"

I told our friend Alegre we would spread the good word on a promotion they currently are running at her shop Green and Greener... D and I are in the market for a new mattress - and are going to bring in our donation to the Parent Group at our elementary school.

Bring in proof of a $50 or more donation to a non-profit that benefits the environment, children or animals and you'll get 5% off your mattress; refer a friend who purchases a mattress with the non-profit donation special and you'll get you an extra 5% back (that's a savings of up to $280!) **(see below for full details)

You can come check out the latex/wool/cotton mattresses carried in store...they feel like a dream. They are made in Southern California out of 100% natural latex foam (latex is from the rubber tree) that is wrapped in organic cotton to start and can be customized to include Pure Grow wool. You can also order inner-spring mattresses if you prefer, although they prefer the latex to inner spring though because 1) no pressure points, 2) they are anti-dust mite and other allergens, 3) they last more than twice as long and 4) no EMF radiation because no metal parts.

**Donation must be to a registered 501(c)(3) and a copy of the donation receipt on organization's letterhead must be dated on or after January 1, 2010 and be shown to Green and Greener employee at the time of purchase. Each $50+ donation is good towards the purchase of one mattress. This offer is good through December 31, 2010.

what do you think?

Sinking in paper? At $400 do you think this thing would be worth it?


Oh - and thank you Qubo for introducing it to the girls - who in turn introduced it to me :)

The Old Place

Last weekend we headed to the Peter Strauss Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains for a picnic and Bluegrass concert. It was loads of fun. Even more exciting was the Cornell Winery and Old Place opposite the Ranch entrance. The restaurant looks amazing, we had a little look around. We should meet up there one Saturday night. The menu is truly mouth watering.
