Is anybody else excited that it’s September? I sure am! I typically can’t get enough of summer. I like to soak up every last ounce of it, and you might even find me basking on the beach on a warm November day (albeit in fleece and jeans) just to soak up the last bit of warmth for the year. But this September, I am so ready to be back to a routine. After nearly six months of construction on the house (pictures coming very soon!), opening the store, and having the kids home for the summer, I am going to enjoy every ounce of quiet I can find this fall, and finally really get back to blogging! Yay!The other reason I am so excited about September is that tonight we have Dawn Oliveira of Oliveira Textiles coming to speak as the store as part of the kick off to Green Drinks Newport. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Green Drinks, it’s an international organization that brings together people who are interested in living a greener life to network and share ideas each month. Different businesses around town host the Newport chapter each month, and we’re kicking off the 2013-2014 season in our store.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Oliveira Textiles, it is a sustainable textile design company based in Bristol, RI, and their fabrics are gorgeous! Even if going green isn’t your passion, I highly encourage you to come hear what Dawn has to say about sustainability in the industry and to see a sampling of her beautiful products.
Hope to see many of your faces there!
