Beautiful – And for a great cause

White Aisle is one of my favorite places to find unique and modern pieces for special events.  My newest find is their “giving back” section of the website, which donates 100% profit back to Cambodian women who, to say the least, have been through some horrible situations and are now creating beautiful sashes, ring pillows, and silk flowers to create a sustainable way of life.Below are a sample of the silk sashes available for purchase. The fabric is hand-loomed Cambodian silk.  They are indeed simple & elegant and come in many colors. What a great way to feel good about a purchase!

Another Charming Vendor

When Laura contacted me about sharing some of her calligraphy samples, I was thrilled! Finding a talented, affordable and personable calligrapher is quite the task, so I was more than happy to see her work. 

To my utter delight, I received a beautifully packaged album showcasing Laura’s designs and many fonts.  This girl is talented and she is affordable!  The care she took in presenting her portfolio to me was a huge message that she takes her job very seriously and loves what she does.

And a cute blog at that!  Check out her website here.
