} Patch

This weekend, I was looking at the Cargoh (a BC Canadian company) newsletter when I noticed the big banner on Patch (also a BC Canadian company).

How wonderful is this product, seriously! Patch is basically a year-round indoor herb gardening system. Obviously, other eatables can be grown in them (such as lettuce, for example), and obviously, you can also put them outside (everything is washable) on your small city balcony in the summer.

The system ” “self waters” by using a technique called sub irrigation, which allows the water to enter the soil through capillary action”, how practical!

Also eco-friendly, the “Patch herb planter body is made with Tyvek (a HDPE), which has all the properties of paper film and fabric. It’s fully recyclable, washable, and stain resistant. The interior components are made of PP #5. All of these components are fully recyclable.” They ship flat (simple assembly instructions are added to your package), so that is also cost and space efficient as far as shipping goes.

3 styles are offered, as well as a price for a 3-pack to make you save a little compared to a single planter purchase!

Also, customer service is totally top notch. I emailed a question, and within 4 hours, Kent Houston himself (the founder and CEO) replied to me with the info. How wonderfully great is that, right!?

Lightly said, I am in love with Patch already, hence, I will go order 3 right this second. ;)

(And I’ll make sure to update you guys on how it all unfolds in my actual home!)

Fall in love with tiny little geometric tree landscapes from Patty Dear! HOW CUTE ARE THESE!?! (Caps intended.)

Talk about unique decor treasures! Choose monochrome for a more “serious” look, or a colorful mix for a bit more fun! Basis are reclaimed wood planks, even better than awesome. ;)

Here I am, fan of pottery. Handmade or machine made, vintage or brand spankin’ new, oldschool or contemporary, I love it all.

Clare Dubina found a fabulous way to mix it all together in a show stopping result: upcycling vintage stoneware into new modern vessels. I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE. Know it. lol :)

} Vanda




Interesting shapes and cuts and textured details is what Vanda Fashion is all about. This new shop, run by two sisters in Israel, offers fashion forward dresses that have personality, but that wont break the bank.

Some are redesigned with vintage pieces, which is always awesome for uniqueness and for the eco-friendly side of it all! :)

} Vietto




From collars to decorative shoulder pads to printed tops, Vietto is half way between subtility and statement pieces.

Whites and blacks, beiges and blues, textures and shapes, pleats and folds, designs on flowy tops, everything is made in Finland with either eco cotton, bamboo, left-over materials or upcycled fabrics. Gotta love a side of eco-conscience with your garment! :)

Fall is here (WOOHOO! Favorite season FTW!!) and so it’s legit to pull out your favorite knits off the top shelf.

Those same ones that inspired The Remakerie a couple of upcycling decor pieces: from big cushions to jar sleeves. Loving these cuties!! A great idea and a great cozy result for your home :)
