Hello from Australia. A favorite quote or image can inspire, uplift and give joy. It can remind us of what our values are, make us laugh and offer comfort. "Good sayings are like pearls strung together". ~Chinese Proverb.When I worked in a welfare NGO it helped me to value the importance of inspiration in our lives as a tool for instigating better life situations.I was privileged to witness people taking inspiration from many sources.Which is why you will see a wide range of quotes and images. All quotes relay a positive message regardless of the troubled life the author may have led. The thoughts may have come from suffering and the deepest part of them is reaching out to make sense of things. Back to the shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheSmileEmporium

I am also passionate in finding new ways to recycle all sorts of materials.My recycling is incorporated into the shop in two ways.The button and postage stamp items have recycled materials within and to bring the price of postage down for the customer I try to recycled clean packaging.
I get excited about about recycling stuff. I'm always looking at peoples clothes and possessions and thinking "How else could I extend the use-age of this item in a way that it functions well and looks good." The other part of my process is asking myself questions. 'Will the item potentially be a positive addition to someones life?" For example buttons remind us that the simple things in life are beautiful.Postage stamp once used to relay information now have a new life as earrings and bobby pins. An example of recying being a positive reminder is in stamps.
One of my daughters sent me a lovely gift and on the package was a whole heap of beautiful stamps. I have made earrings out of some of them and they are a nice reminder to me of her. Aprons encourage creativity and skill building, bags carry our things allowing us to participate in outings, rugs warm the feet.
Well that's it.Not just a rave,it really is how I think.
Thanks for visiting my store.
