Sustainable Gift Ideas

soapstone picture frames from Canvas Home StoreA collection of gift giving ideas to start the season.

One of my goals over the next few weeks is to inspire those who wait until the last minute (you know who you are!) to start shopping early this year.  Why not be finished before Thanksgiving?!  Okay, so maybe that’s pushing it… but at least make a dent in the list before the rush.  Soapstone has been a popular surface material in the kitchen for awhile, and these soapstone picture frames are just as elegant.  Each piece is hand carved by an Indian artisan cooperative using traditional hand tools. Elegant yet masculine, old world or modern, they’ll look great anywhere.
