12 small things.
I came across these beautiful stone hearts this past Friday at Urban Zen's HELP HAITI EVENT and absolutely fell in LOVE. The hearts were being auctioned off for hundreds, even thousands in conjunction with their "Million hearts for Haiti Campaign."
The hearts were sourced from HAND/EYE Magazine (You can purchase 3 hearts for $18 directly at www.12smallthings.com). 12 Small Things by HAND/EYE offers high quality, handmade, artisan goods from around the globe. The collections support craftspeople working to improve the lives of their families and communities in some of the most challenging situations on the planet.
Think event decor, hostess gifts, or keepsakes all with a story of strength, hope, and beauty, as each product reflects these qualities in their design and craftsmanship.
Instead of a wishing tree at your wedding, have wishing stones from Haiti (3 for $18). Tagua Nut Bracelets ($15) from Columbia or a fuchsia and gold silk-shawl ($48) from India for your bridesmaid's gifts. This organic heart-shaped bowl from Haiti is a thoughtful and thought provoking hostess or shower gift ($75).
