i also adore Chakra Pennywhistle's beautiful handmade creations and her eco.forward style! her integration of gorgeous, vintage textiles, and newer organic materials helps make her beautiful accessories, for your home, your children, or your self, simply divine, not to mention, wonderfully eco.concious! she's been an inspiration to me for as long as i've known her (we first met thru the wonderful EcoEtsy Team!) on how she incorporates sustainable design & business practices into her beautiful work, and life! plus... she's a wonderful, generous, kind soul!
so be sure to visit Chakra Pennywhistle's lovely lovely eco.forward shop, and stop by her beautiful blog, too! hope you'll find something she's made that you might like to add to your own collection of wonderful goodies!
many thanks, Rikkianne! and happy collecting, all!
