I try to keep candles around the house. It’s a decor that comes in handy during power outages and I love the ambiance of a pretty candle when the sun goes down. But candle shopping is difficult when you’re looking for a candle that doesn’t have synthetic fragrance and that will actually produce a quality burn.

 shop Big Dipper Wax Works. all natural beeswax candles. bright idea.

Beeswax Heart Pillar

From reading on the Big Dipper website, I’ve learned that beeswax candles are better for the environment. They burn cleaner, longer, and brighter.  Big Dipper has a large selection of candles. The Heart Pillar is very pretty & perfect for warming hearts this Valentine’s Day.

Big Dipper is a Green America approved business located in Seattle. They donate 10% of the net profits from all candle sales “to organizations dedicated to outreach, education, and sustainability efforts devoted to promoting sustainable beekeeping. ”

It think it’s a great idea to bee Eco friendly and use beeswax candles from Big Dipper.

How Intelligent LIDS came to life…..

Intelligent LIDS was started by a Seattle woman who loves her mason jars and wanted a one-piece, non-rusting, reusable, non-leaking lid for everyday use.

“Mason jars are a great example of a perfect product for today’s world: durable, recyclable, beautiful and true multi-taskers. Really, what other item can you think of that people use to preserve food as well as make into a light fixture, soap dispenser or salad container?!! They are so simple in design yet inspire the creativity of the owner. I use my mason jars every day for mixing salad dressings, blending smoothies, arranging flowers and making my own iced tea. I wanted a one-piece, non-rusting lid that reflected the jars’ environmental friendliness and beautiful style.”

Intelligent Lids maintains a low environmental footprint by designing, manufacturing and distributing from the Greater Seattle area.

my review comments:

Love the idea. Love the product. The lids fit the jars perfectly and I’m smiling over the many ways I can use them. The drink lid was better than I expected. It is smooth and easy to drink from. (fyi- the drink slide is not watertight) I found the drink lids helpful when out on the patio to keep “outdoor things” out of my drink. The colors are useful for identifying your beverage/mason jar from someone else’s when entertaining company.

Eco. Pure. Simple. That’s why I love Earth Creations! I’ve featured them on Notes From Dawn several times and I am thrilled to share with you one of their beautiful new spring styles.
The Reef Dress
Reef Dress
A wonderful spring layering piece and adorable stand alone dress for hot weather. This sleeveless dress has a self made 6″ cowl neck and is made from our organic cotton slub fabric that adds a subtle pattern to the fabric. A fabulous stand alone piece, or layered with a belt and leggings.
I just about never wear dresses but this style works for me. I don’t think of it as a dress but like the description states, a “layering piece”. It can be easily dressed up or down. Add a hat and you’re ready for Derby Day!
True to all Earth Creations clothes, the cotton is noticeably soft! Choose from 6 colors. Modeled in Sea. Made in the USA. 100% cotton slub. (What exactly is slub?)
