Oxgut Hose Co. - Upcycling Fire Hoses!

For all you firefighter lovers out there, you're going to love these! I had the greatest pleasure of meeting the inspiration behind Oxgut Hose Co.   There's nothing like the excitement of stumbling upon unique finds, especially ones that are helping our environment and promoting happiness. What drives Oxgut is keeping old fire hoses out of landfills and creating exclusive designs with a heroic past. Just as much as they love finding new life for fire hoses, they love honoring its original purpose: saving lives. A portion of their profits go directly to The Children's Burn Foundation. Simple. Unique. Brilliant. I am inspired!

Spring up the Winter Blues

There is nothing better than the smell for fresh herbs drying in a crackling warm house! We're all for the fresh herb garden planted in the Spring, but if you don't want to wait, go to your local market and pick up your favorite herbs. Then pick up this nifty drying rack from Williams-Sonoma and add a touch of spring to the winter blues.
