Are You Green?





Gee how did his picture get in there?? Hmmm well I guess because Carter is a very "Green Guy" :)














Many of you know I love to re-use old furniture , transform it for another life. I hate tossing out things I think that could be re- purposed. Though I am good at that, I think I do need to work on being more Green wise when it comes to the earth. I love all the Green tips Carter Oosterhouse has on his website CarterOsterhouse.com as well as his show Carter Can on hgtv. One of which is very interesting, did you know that when your tv etc is turned off, it still draws power? All you have to do it unplug your appliances and it will save energy and money! Thats just one tip of hundreds ! MY friend Robin @Paris Bebe fabrics inspired todays post, mentioning that today is turn off your lights for one hour in your house between 8 pm and 9pm Tonight , seems this will happen around the world! I'm not sure I can break away from HGTV or not but will sure try :) Enjoy all the "GREEN " picks and have a wonderful weekend! Kimberly

Hi Kimberly~!
I have always been eco conscious...My father was a great teacher. He was an architect and followed Frank Lloyd Wright. I grew up camping in National forests, in tents, leaving no trace of debris when we left.

I always try to buy eco safe products, recycle, compost, etc...
Hugs,
Penny
