What a wonderful idea. We too recycle our gift bags over and over again, but what a great way to add some variety to the bags we have been using for probably ten Christmases.

I also received my order from the Chagrin Valley Crafts (natural soaps and shampoos) that was put on this thread quite a while ago. I absolutely love them. I can't wait to try more of them and am ecstatic that we won't be using anymore plastic shampoo bottles . It's also going to help greatly on our camping trip in Colorado next week. I have always hated packing bottles that can leak and now we have a solution.

Good news for people who loved their Nalgene bottles! They now have a new BPA free line that includes stainless!

These are not organic, but they are all handcrafted...... I'm thinking that's greener than mass production, but I may be wrong.

I love our new clothesline!
A while ago I asked about which clothesline people had (a T or umbrella style) and I finally bought one! I bought it from http://www.clotheslineshop.com/ and I just love it. We chose a umbrella for the compact size. It was so easy to install, you just shove the sleeve into the ground then slide it in and done. I have it right outside on the porch in the side of a small flower bed. It also comes with a cover to protect it. Here is a picture of it with my daughters clothes on it

(please ignore the greeness of the pool in the background, we are still trying to figure it out!)

Maybe the pool needs chlorine? Looks like a great clothesline! Our yard is really small so I have a chain (literally) strung across the patio.

I am learning that pools need more than just chlorine, I am taking a sample in to the local pool store tomorrow and they will let us know what we are doing wrong! Finally!
