DECEMBER // Things We Love
My partner Chris and I are back from Thailand after a ten day trek and still feeling the sunny glow! The photo above was taken at an artist collective in Chang Mai, called Baan Kang Wat. If you have the chance to check it out, I highly recommend it. We got tons of amazing treasures there: handmade pottery, wooden spoons, indigo dyed aprons, stationary, and more. These rainy NorCal vibes are in stark contrast with our last couple weeks in Thailand with fresh coconuts in tow, but I'm slowly getting back into the groove, recovering from jet lag, and crafting my Christmas list. Many of the links below are things I've had my eye on! This season I'm focusing on giving and receiving things that last. A huge goal for me is to reduce waste and to invest even more of my dollars into ethical and mindful companies.
Have you heard about Chamba Pottery? It's definitely on my wish-list. Handmade in South America by families who've crafted these vessels for hundreds of years, from simple earth-based materials.
Just bought Matthew Wood’s newest book, The Earthwise Herbal Repertory. I can't wait to dive into this one, maybe I'll get nerdy during this upcoming Chistmas holiday!
I was thrilled to meet Sophie at Spirit Weavers and I got this epic magic yoga mat by her brand Magic Carpet Yoga Mats. All her designs are incredible! I've been stretching out on it after my long commute, and it makes me feel like f'n goddess.
Has anyone used these? Or these? Looking to go nearly-zero waste around the kitchen and these both seem like wonderful tools. Loving Litterless + Trash is for Tossers for quick waste-free inspiration.
