My apologies. Really. There is nothing I dislike more than big retailers pushing holidays up really early. When I was a kid, Christmas merchandise didn’t come out until after Thanksgiving. Then it changed to immediately post-Halloween, and finally, now it seems to come right after Labor Day.
What’s to do?
As much as I don’t want to add to this insanity, I am just too excited about the new, fair trade, very eco-chic Christmas ornaments I’m getting made of recycled newspapers and magazine by a women’s collective in a very depressed neighborhood in Manila, the Philippines.
So, if you’ll indulge me, I think you’ll love to know that they will be here, and won’t be sold until after Labor Day but I just wanted to give you a sneak peek:
Really, what could possibly be much cuter than a large holiday ornament made from recycled magazine twine?
I find this one, made from recycled office paper, and a bit smaller than the one above, elegant. Yes. Recycled and elegant.
Similar to the one above, this ornament is made from recycled newspaper beads. I think most people have this as their favorite.
I look forward to getting some better photos on the Three Stone Steps site, or letting you see them in person. I just know you’ll like them. But, first, enjoy the rest of your summer.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
