Yesterday I posted about these porcelain tortoise and hare banks
from Uncommon Goods
that in my opinion would make a wonderful baby shower gift, and at $22-24
they are also a great deal! Uncommon Goods

I recently received the People Towels
and Repurposed Layered Wood Frame
from Uncommon Goods
to give a try in our new home. Both of these products are attractive, functional, and sustainable. I am all for beautiful things and high quality design, and when these things can be green and sustainable too then I'm even happier!
I have to admit that I'm a repeat offender of the "paper towel club." I use way too many of them and this has become both a financial and an environmental problem in our household! Since getting these People Towels I have used them for everything from wiping down counters, drying my hands, and wiping out baby bottles.
These reusable towels are a great gift for yourself or any friend who has a paper towel problem like I used to!
I was also lucky enough to receive this beautiful and sustainable frame that is made from re-purposed
On the package of the frame it says, "It was the barn for the square dance on Saturday night / It was the front porch to rock on / The only thing worse than tearing down an old building is not re-using the wood that created its beauty." Can you think of a place that you have loved that had to be torn down or demolished? I sure can...and I love the idea of the wood that housed so many lives and special moments being repurposed as a way to save those moments, our memories, in time.
I decided to use this old wood frame to showcase a new beginning in my life - the walk down the aisle at our rehearsal, the day before our wedding. Here it is on my bedside table.
And close up...
Isn't it pretty?!
