Like to doodle? Well, here’s Boarding School, a shop where you’ll find what you need.

Made from recycled or reclaimed wood, these sturdy books (also available as moleskine covers) are definitely an aesthetic statement, as well as a practical purchase! Have them size customized to your heart’s desires, too. :)

Plus, hellooooo perfect logo and branding.

} Ekra

I’ve always wanted a crocheted rug made from recycled fabrics. They are simple, can match any decor, and very durable!

Ekra offers a ton of pretty ones, in many different colors and patterns. I especially like those with the monogram: perfect for your pet, right? Will have one someday! :)

Ahhhh reclaimed wood, how I love you. Forever and ever.

The people at Blake Avenue surely has this exact same thought on a daily basis. Their wood is recovered from architecture that dates back 80 to 150 years and used to make long lasting stunning furniture pieces. Plus, when one says recycled, one also says unique one of’s.

Sure, you probably can’t afford a piece on a impulse purchase. But you can always dream, and even, plan a purchase for the future. :)

Rough South Home‘s aesthetics almost makes me shiver of uncontrolled love. Yep, that much.

The man behind these pieces, Clarke, salvages materials to create furniture, accessories and lighting.

} Tomate d’épingles

Felt like pimping my friends over at .tomate d’épingles. today! :)

They (my friend Guylaine and her sister Isabelle) offer jewelry (for men too!) made from recycled material: vintage ties and vintage printer’s films (topographic maps, as well!) are some of the materials they praise on!

Snoop around their shop for some more eco-friendly goodness!!!

} Peg and Awl

Looking at my notepads, I realized one day that most of the info on there was for one time use only. A company number, a CMYK color code, the precise time the bus I had to catch would go by. And after that, the info would just exist, but not be used ever again. I thought there should be another solution that wouldn’t be wasting so much paper, and cut down the visual noise.

A long while back, I had discovered some Ceramic Memo Boards that I thought looked really cool (and useful)!

Recently, I found these little wooden chalkboards from Peg and Awl. Wowsa, instant loooove!! They are sold with a chalk pencil, in a trio ($56 USD), as well as in a single ($22 USD).

Browsing thru that shop again earlier, I realized they are also the ones selling that Tub Caddy I’ve been eying since I moved in my new place more than a year ago!

You’ll also find there other awesome items, such as bookends and cutting boards and spice racks! Sweet!!
