When your new water bottle is actually an Olive Oil Bottle.
A while ago I needed a new water bottle for work & spent ages staring at the shelf selecting a bpa free bottle that was expensive & turned out to really not be as good as the label promised it to be.
Now, making healthier food choices, I realised that often good quality products come in very reusable packaging. Hilariously though this glass bottle was full of cold extraction, unfiltered olive oil which was excellent quality & we thoroughly enjoyed, it was still cheaper than the bpa free drinks bottle I bought months ago & it’s very sturdy. I’m pretty sure it will last longer & be a healthier choice to drink from at work.
The small orange rubber ring is removable for easy washing.
This is the 500ml bottle. I’ve now bought a 1 litre bottle to work through.
This eco swop is a lot cheaper than the ‘real’ thing.
As a side note don't drop a 1 litre glass bottle of oil on your bare foot. It will bruise terribly & hurt like crazy. Ugly foot parade here I come.

-Let’s talk packaging-
When I first started this venture, one of the main concerns of mine was packaging. Being able to live in a world where I can bring my passion and creativity to others is something I am truly grateful for, but I didn’t want to have to produce more waste for the planet either. Finding packaging that can be recycled or even composted something that is a must for me, and in the near future I will be able to do so!! In the mean time, all of my packages will be sent out in recycled tissue paper and bags. PLEASE recycle any and all materials if possible. The planet and myself will that you tremendously 🧡✨

If you’re in Del Ray, come to @delrayartisans to check out the Fresh Meat exhibit now through September 1. Swipe through to see my pieces and some more of the gallery. ...
The first piece is What Time Forgot, made from a recycled shutter and broken butterfly and flower jewelry, plus magazine collage, to represent the take back of our world by nature and time. The second, Milky Way, is more self explanatory and represents my love for all things space.
I mostly do upcycled jewelry and only this year I’ve gotten in to making larger mixed media pieces. It’s still a learning process, especially since just as with my more commercial items, I only use recycled materials. I was nervous to have my pieces in this exhibit because I don’t feel like a “real artist” and I knew there would be some amazing pieces and what I call “fancy art” (aka fine art) as opposed to my work which is usually more folk or conceptual. But I really like how they look hanging in the gallery, and I LOVE all the other awesome pieces by my fellow artists.

I can't stand sewing, I embrace holes and go buttonless, I still haven't finished the purple and white gingham apron we had to do for Home Economics homework in 1983.... so I am well happy that after scanning Done Deal for the last few months trying to find a nice armchair I took in the kinda smelly old cushionless chair we had outside for 3 years, cut up an old foam mattress and a blanket and did this. The stitches are appalling they look like spiders, I sanded down the wood and sprayed lavender oil on it to make it smell better but it is a useable arse resting thing and cost nothing. I did say "awh ya b*stard ya" a lot though.

Adding different textures and shades of color lends so much warmth to a room. This #buffaloplaid wreath is so easy to make and requires minimal materials. It cost under $3 to make actually! The how to is over on my YouTube channel.
