Ahh! Spring is finally here, though for some in not such a pleasant way. I would like to extend my prayers and blessings to the families and individuals affected by the tornados recently. Some are suspecting that our warmer climate may be the culprit, but that is a topic for another post. In addition to a maddening need to get out in the dirt and plant everything that I can think of, I also get the urge to checkout warm weather fashions. Alas, the two interests merge in the Free People "Vintage Loves" collection - Back to the Garden. As most of you know, I try to spend at least 20% of my clothing budget on vintage, thrift, fair trade and/or organic fashions, so I'm always on the hunt for unique and awesome items in these categories. The two items pictured are only what I was able to save as a photo from the website, there were some really cute dresses and a cool shoe rack, if you want to see the entire collection (warning - a little pricey), then you have to click on the link here.

Happy Earth Day! Being the mom of a high school senior, hasn't allowed me much time to have much of an Earth Day celebration, so my contribution was joining the National Resource Defense Council and signing up to become an advocate of our environment and our health. Please show your support by reading this link and taking action. Raising awareness of and expanding my knowledge about the potentially cancerous effects of unsafe chemicals is what led me to blogging about environmental health some three years ago.
