From War To Peace Jewelry #Review. #HolidayGiftGuide

I came across From War To Peace jewelry and instantly fell for The Tree Of Life. Not only is this piece beautiful, but the birth of this piece has a different story. From War To Peace is made from Copper cabling that was once buried uunderground across the Midwest. These cables alloy has been recycled into what is now known as Peace Bronze.

I am wearing the Tree Of Life adjustable corded bracelet.The moment the package was in my hands I ripped it open, saw the the piece and immediately put it on. From War To Peace has more than just bracelets, there are earrings, necklaces, belt buckles, Bottle Openers, Wine Stoppers, and other items. Some of the jewelry are available in silver dipped, or gold dipped versions.

The adjustable cord is nicely made, even the clasps match the piece itself, along with the Peace Bronze chain links.

If you are looking for a piece of jewelry that not only has meaning, but is also well made, and unique From War To Peace is for you.

Made in The USA, and won the 2012 Gandhi Peace Award.

My Pretty Playhouse by Review for 100% Recycled Cardboard

My little helper and I had so much fun putting My Pretty Playhouse together.  Assembly was easy.  There is no glue, no tape, you just set up the two main walls.  Interlock the tabs, then put the roof on! It's that simple.  It can even be colored on or left blank!   Made from 100% Recycled Cardboard!  I also have respect for the company that they did not ship the item in a different box.  The playhouse comes mailed directly in the box itself.  I have this pet peeve that I cannot stand when boxes, are mailed inside of boxes.. especially if its something like.. Cardboard!  So, thank you Cascades for not wasting a tree!

There are other playhouse designs, and even card board furniture. The prices are affordable too. The My Pretty Playhouse retails for $38.00, some of the furniture like the table, and chair set retails for $15.00.  At least with items like this, artistic, personalized touches are welcomed.  

You can find out more about Cascades, and all that they do for Recycling on Facebook, and Twitter.

(Baby Sy has been a fan of cardboard for years, Lol )

So, what do you get the toddler that loves their cardboard boxes? Their own cardboard playhouse!

Items received were for review.  I was not paid, nor told what to write.  All images are my own!
