it's giveaway time!

When my friends Kasia and Monica of 
Rustic MAKA
asked me to be part of their small business giveaway,
I immediately jumped in.
They are committed to a wholesome lifestyle by making natural products themselves,
and by supporting and shopping with makers of natural products,
such as myself.
This giveaway is HUGE!

It not only covers some of the natural companies that they have met
through markets and shows that they have attended,
but many other small businesses that they have fallen in love with.

See that array of goodness in the photo?
All of that can be yours if you are the lucky winner!
So head on over to their website

and go to the Journey of Change post, 

where you have a chance to meet the other businesses that are included in the giveaway,
and throw your name in the hat!

Good Luck!

paying it forward...

Here at The Old White House we know just how blessed we are.  We are very fortunate to have such wonderful, loyal customers, and want to do something to give back to the community for all of the support you've shown us. 

So as our way of saying THANK YOU, through the months of November & December we are donating a bag of our natural lavender laundry soap to a local shelter for every bundle we sell. 

You can find us at the Detroit Eastern Market on Saturdays through the Christmas shopping season, along with a few other shows thrown in for good measure.

Please check our Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date on where we are headed!

We are also counting our online sales as part of the give back. 

The bundles make wonderful gifts for all those you love, (including yourself!), 
  and are filled with one of every natural lavender cleaner we make... 
a lavender laundry soap, plus the cute little wooden scoop,
 organic lavender dryer sachet,
 lavender linen & room spray,
 lavender carpet freshener,
 and our lavender kitchen & bath cleanser, 
all tucked into our signature hand stamped cotton bag.  

I hope to see you at the market!

I'm thankful for it everyday.  
Taking our natural lavender laundry and cleaning products,
 and my repurposed assemblage jewelry,
to markets and shows is something that still seems like a dream.
(a dream where I work very hard... but a dream nonetheless.) 

If you have followed me up to this point, 
I know that I have come and gone, and come and gone again,
so I appreciate each and every one of you that still stop by 
when you see me come up in your sidebar. 

...and if you have followed for awhile, then you know that I have loved reclaiming 
forgotten treasures for forever. 
 I get caught up in the process of turning a phrase into a wearable reminder.

Repurposing the forgotten little pieces of someone's long ago story
into jewelry for someones new story...

 something as simple as a beloved dog's tag,
a reclaimed memory of someone's best friend...

into a necklace for a special dog lover.

Each small piece of our history inspires me 
to create a sparkly something special for you to wear.

I draw inspiration from the rusty, crusty, sparkly, shiny, 
 the natural, earth formed gems, and our past.

...and then there's this -
our incredibly fresh scented, hard working
natural lavender goodness.

like I said in the beginning...

Thanks for stopping by!
Please make sure to check my social media pages

and where you can find us!

fall is in the air...

 I love this photo of Hannah working the booth. xoxo

As in the last few years, when we attend the year's last Farmers Market at the Capitol,
 (where I pick up some of the coolest pumpkins and gourds for our booth and home,)
then you know that summer is officially over.

Good-bye Summer,
Hello Autumn!

I hope that you enjoy all the best offerings of the season!
