Mason Jar

Mason Jars aren’t just for canning anymore. There’s a whole Mason Jar culture. I call it “farmhouse chic”.

We use small mason jars for our drinking glasses. They are so cute and versatile. We bought them for our wedding parfaits and I’ve since replaced our mismatched glasses in favour of the mason jars. The smalls jars are good for drinks and the large jars are good for smoothies.


EcoJarz is encouraging the Mason Jar culture by making these fun lids to keep the jars spill-free. They come in stainless steel and silicone and contain no BPA or phthalates and are recyclable and non-toxic. They also have these stainless steel straws and parfait spoons to complete your collection.

If you are a Mason Jar collector, you might want to add these Heritage Collection Blue Ball Mason Jars. You can also buy a case here.


Now I need a juicer.

World’s first 100% recyclable umbrella | Indiegogo
May 18, 2013 by Cheriak Leave a Comment

I’m so excited about this online purchase, $25 dollars to get this incredible, 100% recyclable umbrella by Ginkgo. That’s what I love about sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter, you can get in on the ground level and help support the creators and innovators and artists. I was blown away when I saw this Indiegogo campaign a few days ago. Living in the Pacific Northwest, the rain coast, the wet coast, the left coast, whatever you want to call it… it rains A LOT here and umbrellas are necessary.

Over 1 BILLION umbrellas lost or damaged every year. Ginkgo aims to save our landfills and our pocketbooks. Made entirely of 100% recyclable polypropylene, these umbrellas are able to resist strong winds by flexing without breaking or even bending. The hinges are designed to withstand thousands of open/close cycles. Created with plastic injection moulding, each part can be coloured as desired, for an infinite variety of possibilities.
