How To Polish Your Silverware

One question that I get quite often is,
"What do you polish your silverware with?"

So, I made a little video to show you exactly
what I use and how I do it.

This is the best way to take care of your
'...and then again' hand-stamped, 
vintage silverware.

Click the link above to watch.
Thank you to Tight Line Films for the video.

Vanity Bottle Tags

Easily identify your self-care products 
with our 'toiletry tags', made from vintage silverware.
 A beautiful way to create a feel of luxury in 
your powder room, guest bath 
or en-suite, while reducing your 
consumption of plastics and packaging.

Head to your local zero-waste store for a refill
 of your self-care products like shampoo, 
conditioner, soap, lotion, etc;
 then pour them into some nice bottles 
and place one of our pretty 
hand-stamped tags on the bottle. 
Find them here in our Etsy shop.

Fall & Winter Markets

Yes it is still August, 
but it has been cloudy all day and
 I am wearing a hoodie and drinking tea.
 Fall is just around the corner and
I want to make sure that you know exactly 
where to find me for some in-person shopping 
over the next few months.
Pop over to the 'Events' page for all of the details,
 including my first market in Calgary.

August Charity - Yoga Outreach

**Update - Thank you for support.
Together we raised $350 for Yoga Outreach!

During the month of August
I will be collecting a portion of sales,
and will be donating them to Yoga Outreach.

I have chosen this organization as I 
believe strongly in the benefits of yoga and
 I feel connected to the cause. 
My post-secondary education was in the field
of Therapeutic Recreation and I also worked
in the Social Assistance system as part of 
the BC Public service. 
I saw first-hand the benefits of how recreation
can build self-esteem and help individuals heal.

Here is a bit about Yoga Outreach from their website:

Our Mission

Our mission is to expand access to trauma-informed yoga programs to heal and connect communities

What Is A Trauma Informed Approach?

A trauma-informed approach is designed to create a safe and healing environment that inspires and empowers participants to reconnect with their body (a key element in trauma recovery). At Yoga Outreach we do this through offering yoga programs that are choice-based, incorporate a no-touch & no-assist approach, and use language that is invitational, gender neutral, and non-violent.

Thank you for your assistance in helping
me reach this goal!
