A Snowy Philadelphia

It's snowing here in Philadelphia and I couldn't be more pleased! I'm a winter girl at heart and nothing pays off the biting cold better than snow! However, this time around I'm down with another bout of bronchitis, so I only spent a few minutes outside (against Doctor's wishes) to snap a few photos. I couldn't resist!

The Blogging Gold Rush & Its Affect On Community

I can't tell you how many times I have sat down to write this article and then re-write it again.

So with that please bear with me with grace as I try to type down my thoughts.

Mela & Roam

Wouldn't we all love to do what Courtney's able to do? Travel to far away lands and bring back the goods? It makes me want to head back over to the Middle East (my place of choice) with a couple empty suitcases waiting to bring back treasures of colors, textures, and filled with stories.

This elephant is too cute to handle, and that chair would go perfect with a new desk!

African Baskets

Finding these baskets basically made my night. Not only are they stunning and handmade, but they are preserving a cultural traditional and at the same time promoting economic and financial independency and stability. 

However, sometimes it seems like there are a lot of shops like this out there. Organizations and people who claim to support families and individuals in Africa by taking their baskets and selling them abroad. While that does sound a bit idealistic and naive to me, I do like to do conscious shopping and support where I can. What are your thoughts on consumer shopping such as this?
