Who can blame us for dreaming of Spring? It has been a very changeable winter in this part of the world (and elsewhere!), with temperatures bouncing between plus and minus 15 degrees lately, and snow threatening once again this week. Even the weather network is laughing at us! However, in cheerier news, I received word today that Novica (the National Geographic's lovely fair trade shop) is striving for a milestone: $60 million sent to artisans around the world! Upon perusing the latest fair trade beauties they are featuring I decided to dedicate this post to them, and warmer weather to come :) Hammocks, planters and cushions.... sigh! Surely it is time to at least start planning our gardens and patio plans for the year? Novica is offering some special sales to celebrate, including 10% off African wall masks, beaded jewelry and other unique items this weekend (March 14 and 15) and a special $10 for St Patrick's Day with code "GREEN4U" from Monday through Thursday (March 16 to 19). What a great time to pick up a little something to spruce up your home and your mood. Enjoy, and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!
