{eco} vintages: Chakra Pennywhistle

I love, love, LOVE making new friends, and I'm so glad to have becom accquainted with Rikkianne (and Ursula) of  Chakra Pennywhistle.  They have quickly risen to the top of some of my favourite creators - from the second I saw their work!  I had the chance to work with them a bit during the creation of our premier issue of Pure Green Living and I so hope not to lose touch!  I've had a little crush on this pillow after I saw a custom listing in their Etsy shop - it is made with organic cotton, and the calendar patch on the side is from a vintage tea towel.  ChakraP. can customize it by either circling the date or embroidering a little heart on it!  Initially I thought it would be a unique, thoughtful gift for my hubby, for our one year anniversary (just passed, on the 9th of August), but then I realized, who am I kidding, this is really a gift FOR ME! 

I was soooo delighted, beyond compare, when a box turned up, and inside was the little pillow!  Jonathan waited till I was in bed before he said, 'oh, something came in the mail'.  The rascal!

Isn't it so beautiful?  I love that I will be reminded of how much I love Jonathan everytime I look at it.  I'm so busy these days that I'm really realizing how important it is to take a minute and just be grateful.  Life is good. 

Thank you ChakraP. for being so amazing!  I can't wait to work together again!

Please pay a visit!
