I appreciate the longevity of quality sheets and towels when cared for properly. We are still using those we received as wedding presents nearly 13 yrs ago.

Our friend Alegre recently decided to shutter her long-standing business Green and Greener. It was an opportunity to pick up a great deal on beautiful Coyuchi sheets and towels.


Based in Northern California's Point Reyes Station, all of Coyuchi's cotton products are certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and produced using fair–labor practices, verified by in-country auditors.


Alegre's online store is still up for a while. You can visit it here. Or check out her newest venture...

ich liebe dich*

my dear friend c has nominated this blog for a Liebster Award (thanks c!) i have known c for more years then i can count on fingers and toes. she is my rock. her blog inspires me to think carefully about the way we live, and more often than not teaches me something new. you can visit her here at retrench: poor cate's guide to frugal living.


jan and i have known each other a very long time... she has a cute house in north vancouver she is working on, always guides me towards what i should be listening to. and her cats crack me up. (i love you jan!)


rebecca is a long-time blogging friend. our time together stays in my mind and i know we will meet again someday soon. she is a talented artist, resourceful,and lives in beautiful corvallis OR with her beautiful family.

this blog brings back many TO memories. she is a photo stylist with a great eye. i always enjoy her take on mommyhood and hearing where she has been for dinner :)


kristina's blog is one of the first i ever followed. it has been exciting to watch her art evolve, and her kids grow up.

that's my 5. but i'm adding a 6th and wishful thinking...
