These lovely, entirely vegetable-based, soy votives burn cleaner and longer than regular beeswax candles. The wax is extracted without chemical solvents, is organic, and is completely free of petroleum products and additives. Plus, they’re pretty stinkin’ cute, and they’re scented with essential oils.
Visit Nimli.com to check these out. This little set of five is $26. Nimli also has a bunch of other natural, organic, and green products for sale, so check them all out and give something green this holiday season!

Ok…so your mother or grandmother had a bunch of old china…maybe they’re sitting in your cupboard for that “special occasion,” maybe the chipped remains are in a box in your attic, maybe you’re waiting to pass them on to your own children, maybe they’re in the pile of stuff to donate to charity. Check out what one fab artiste from Baltimore is doing to reuse these plates and save them from landfills (and dust bunnies)…
That’s right! The Broken Plate Pendant Company, found on Etsy.com, makes them into beautiful recycled jewelry. Send them your old wedding china, hand-me-down tableware, or that vintage plate you found at the thrift store, and they’ll turn it in to a purty piece of recycled art. Their website even has pre-made pieces to choose from if you want one in a hurry. Take a gander at this belt buckle…
Snag one of these gorgeous and recycled accessories here and give a truly unique gift to someone special (they even have cufflinks and “you complate me” friendship necklaces!)
