I have talked a lot about cleaning green here on Thoughtfully Simple. From do-it-yourself mixtures to some of the leading “green” brands; I am always looking to share new ways to clean your home in an earth friendly way. One thing I hear a lot of is how it is just so easy to grab the traditional cleaners that have always worked well at the grocery store. Well, in response to your comments…I have found a simple solution!
I recently had the pleasure of trying out a new green cleaner from the SC Johnson, A family Company. Nature’s Source is a new line of fabulous Eco-friendly cleaners that (dare I say it) work well! A new twist on your old favorites like Windex for your glass cleaning needs and Scrubbing Bubbles for your bathroom detail. Right at your local grocery store, you can find these trusted brands now reformulated with a more earth friendly formula.
I was impressed with how well these cleaners worked and how they really smelled fresh and clean without smelling like cleaner. From the kitchen to the bathroom (and many places in between), these green cleaners really get the job done.
So, there you have it….. green cleaning really is simple after all!
ThreadBeaur is a true gemstone-of-a-company. It glistens and sparkles and shines an inspiring light right through your computer monitor. A company created with the sole mission to take old discarded fabric and create with it practical, useful, and gorgeous creations. The designs of Carrie Fountain are proof that you can be both earth friendly and fashionable. I was completely inspired by her fabulous “green-flair!”
A professed “thrift-store” enthusiast, Carrie finds inspiration for her works of art from vintage fabrics. In her own words:
“The best fabric is that with a history, some old sheets that the owners no longer stretch across the mattress, they make perfect cloth grocery bags. Floor length vintage drapes, that have found themselves hanging lifeless in the thrift store, I will rescue them and make them something special again.”
ThreadBeaur offers a range of vintage-patterned gems like these Eco-Friendly Coffee Sleeves.
When I received my Coffee Sleeve from ThreadBeaur I was equally impressed with both the quality and the design. The thickness of the fabric ensures that it does it’s job– keeps my hand from burning when I go and grab my morning latte. The well-sewn design enables me to reuse this sleeve over and over, eliminating my waste of the cardboard sleeves provided at the coffee shops. And lastly, the vintage chic print allows me to show off a bit of fashion flair myself, what more could you ask for?!
Ohhh I know, how about fabulous vintage chic Cloth Grocery Bags— because ThreadBeaur has got those too!
ThreadBeaur is not only helping us be a bit more earth-friendly but also encouraging us to show off our personalities a bit while we are at it. So, grab your coffee sleeve and grocery bag and head out for the day, the earth will thank you and you just might find your own fashion flair!
Carrie is SO fabulous that she is giving one reader a chance to win a Coffee Sleeve of their own. If you win, she’ll choose a fabulous pattern for you to show off, over and over again (that’s the point remember?)!
Wedding season is fast approaching, and many newly engaged couples will begin planning their big day. Thoughtfully Simple teamed up with Wedding Paper Divas to bring you a fabulous giveaway! If you are considering a destination wedding, this is for you! Thoughtfully Simple is providing you with a little inspiration to get your wheels spinning…and Wedding Paper Divas is giving away one $100 gift certificate for you to purchase your fabulous wedding invitations!
Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. Not only are they typically more intimate, they are definitely more memorable. From tropical settings to high mountain climates, to lush vineyards…your options really are endless.
Don’t assume your color palette has to be blue just because you are beach side. Anything can really go, however I suggest colors that will compliment your setting. Here is a fun color scheme to make your wedding “pop” on the neutral backdrop of a beach venue.
Outdoor weddings in a mountain setting can be stunning. I recommend really letting nature inspire you if you choose a destination wedding in a mountain setting.
Above: We took one wedding invitation from Wedding Paper Divas and simply by changing the color scheme of that invitation we were able to create two different destination wedding visions. The possibilities really are endless with their fabulous collections!
Feeling inspired? want to win a $100 gift certificate to make your destination wedding vision come true? Take a look at Wedding Paper Divas wedding invitations and start planning now!
