Dog Cowl – Jersey Circle Scarf for Dogs – Eco Friendly – Upcycled

As winter is in full swing, there’s a need to add layers and get cozy and warm. The same holds true for our pups, which is why these stylish dog cowls, hand made by Kate Butler of Raleigh, North Carolina, are so necessary.

The best part is these canine cowls are made from upcycled jersey fabric that Kate finds at The Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC, as well as thrift stores like Cause for Paws and ReTails Thrift Shop, which donate to animals in need.

Blonde Potato – Made in Canada

The winter is here.  Time to wrap your hands around a pumpkin spice latte while bundled in a cashmere sweater and tucked behind a soft, cozy scarf.  I think I can speak for many of us when I say that you can never have too many scarves in your wardrobe to finish off each outfit.  These scarves make the perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list.

Each one of these scarves is handcrafted from a superfine, all natural Merino wool.  Complete with a touch of luxurious
renewable fibers such as, silk, flax, linen, hemp, and bamboo.

Merino’s many unique benefits make it an easy choice when choosing a fabric. Besides being one of the softest materials on the planet, it is also extremely versatile. The superfine Merino wool draws moisture away from the skin but also retains warmth making it weather-appropriate all year round. It is known for its antibacterial properties along with being a natural dirt, odour and stain repellent. Making your scarf durable and easy to care for.

Stylish, sleek, elegant. One of a kind.

Every piece has its own unique beauty.  Order yours online today.

My latest second-hand shopping finds

Wandering the isles of second-hand thrift shops is one of my favourite things to do on my days off.  I find it incredibly relaxing and I love the element of surprise, not knowing what I’m going to find.  Some second-hand stores can be a little overpriced so you have to be aware of that when searching for deals.  The best Value Village in the city is located a little north of the downtown core. The ones downtown are often ransacked and all of the good stuff is picked up by the avid second-hand shoppers.  I wouldn’t consider myself to be in that category. However, when I do make the trip to my favourite Value Village, I tend to set aside a couple of hours and sift through every area of interest.  Have a look below at my recent finds.
