While walking from one of our favorite cafes through downtown Chico I noticed, for the first time, these beautiful lights in the downtown plaza. Maybe it was the fact that almost everytime we're there an event is happening, like the Thursday night farmers market or concert in the park, but I just never noticed them. They're so gorgeous. Although the lights are copper, in my mind I tend to group it with antique bronze and that is one metal that I haven't had much affinity for, but after finding this vase at a local thrift store I'm finding that I really love it and I'm starting to see and appreciate it all around me.

LemongrassandMango, and is selling her creations. I had the privilege of modeling for one of her items (that she then gave to me) and now I wear it ALL the time. Since I want this blog to be about sustainable design, I thought she would be perfect to highlight. Please check her out and let me know what you think.

Look around the room that you want to spruce up, completely re-design, or just update. What do you have that reminds you of nature. I look around my living room and I see the beautiful dark wood ceiling beams. They are gorgeous. Instead of trying to copy these exactly I've brought in the idea of wood in by placing a vase of freshly cut branches off of a tree outside on our fireplace mantel.
