Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Five Accessories: Beneficial to the Makers and Eco-Friendly Too!

While doing yet more putzing around with Christmas decorations -- this time arranging faux-presents under the tree to cover up the bare tree "stem" until it disappears underneath my new-this-year "velvet" and "silk" tree skirt -- I had the t.v. on to some home-improvement program or other and caught mention of "Five," custom-made eco-friendly handbags.  I looked up in time to see a couple of really interesting looking handbags made out of bamboo and coconut!

So, now I've just gobbled down lunch (these days I have to remind myself to eat, I'm so busy doing other things!) I took a few moments to find them on the internet:

Five Accessories sells more than just eco-friendly handbags, but these handbags - LOVE!  Here are just a few -- for yourself and for budget-friendly gifts for your special friends.  These are just the most unique products and the coolest designs!
Brown coconut shell clutch: small size 6" x 8": $35; 10" x6": $40
and 12" x 6": $45 (satin lining)
 
Bamboo 1/2 moon jewel clutch: $25 (on sale)
for large size (12" x 6").  Small size (6" x6") also on sale for $20!!!

Check out some of this uber-unique jewelry!
 
Wooden bracelet is constructed with wavy wooden pieces
and held together with elastic and small beads in-between.
           A perfect rare statement piece! On SALE from $15 to $10.           
 
Brown and white mother of pearl shell bangle bracelet, from
the Bali Collection.  On sale for $10 (regularly $15).
Lots of other beautiful things in their design lines.  Best of all, not only are they eco-friendly, they also work with local crafts-people and a portion of the purchase price goes to assist local development, as well as providing the crafts-people with a much-needed source of income.  We need more businesses like this, so please, support Five Accessories if you can, with a purchase or two :)
