Tease Recyclewear

Who can spin a twist on a simple t-shirt [or hideous T] to make it look fabulous? Tease Recyclewear. They make hip, environmentally-friendly clothing from t-shirts like no ones business! We're proud to carry their arm warmers, leg warmers and coffee cozies. I pack my arm warmers in my purse for Portland's bipolar weather- like today:) I love their hip designs and attitude their work delivers. Plus their creators are great people!

Sweet Treat

I spotted this treat at our neighborhood grocery store and said Aawwwwww! A chocolate coffee cup with espresso mousse topped with a white chocolate mixer stick? My brain exploded in it's cerebral cortex a bit. I' m easily distracted by chocolate beauty.

Happy Weekend!
