Some GREEN Items from the EtsyTwitter Team

Browsing team member's shops, I was looking for vintage, repurposed, or recycled items. This is what I found for today's post.

This lovely pillow was once a wild vintage sweater made of a thick, soft 100% shetland wool in a pattern of turquoise, charcoal grey, pinks, yellows, and a darker blue! FirebirdHouse Designs felted and recycled it to make this perfect pocket journal pillow. FirebirdHouse Designs created the design, which features a 4.5 x 7.5 in pocket on the back of the pillow, made of 100% wool turquoise felt, and decorated with upcycled felted flowers, leaves, and embroidery. Purchasing something like this for your home supports artists, handmade, and the green movement.

Jenco13 makes this item, an eco-friendly alternative to disposable paper coffee cup sleeves. It makes a great gift for a family members, teachers, bus drivers, friends, others, and yourself!!! Better, yet, I recommend checking with your local coffee shop about a discount if you bring in your OWN coffee mug with a crochet coffee cup sleeve. Where we get our morning coffee, we are able to fill our own mug for just $1... For GOURMET coffee! Yum! This saves money and saves our environment. Remember the little things like these. They add up!

Well, I might have to feature YOUR shop soon! ;) Thanks, Gloria, for stopping by our blog.

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
