Over this past year I have added a few new favorite home decor items and furniture into our house that I am excited to share with you today. I am a collector of fashion and home decor magazines or books, but the thought of actually decorating my home leaves me overwhelmed (just putting it out there, just so you know).
Of the above items I bought the little candle holder bird on clearance at Target and the gold foiled and white paper pyramids came courtesy of Minted a year ago. Then a few weeks back I received the two prints you see courtesy of Hands Producing Hope. I actually grew up knowing and being friends with the Founder, Rebecca so when she asked me to share these prints and more on Hands Producing Hope I was more than honored to do so.
“What is done in Love is done well” is exactly what Hands Producing Hope (HPH) an ethical fashion focused organization and shop in Costa Rica has as their mission. They connect women and turn them into artisans. HPH provides them with local Bible studies, education, work and give women facing discrimination the empowerment they deserve. Hands Producing Hope is pleased to announce that with the success in Costa Rica they are expanding the organization and this fashion brand is in the process of launching to the women on Nkombo Island, Rwanda, to provide the same employment, education ,empowerment and hope as the women in Costa Rica. Currently, Hands Producing Hope is raising funds to help start their organization in Rwanda and so if you are looking for special ethical or unique gifts for Christmas, or are just in need of some trendy jewelry won’t you consider buying or sharing this organization? The prints I have shown you are $25 together and the $25 plus shipping that you pay gets you these two prints (comes in gold, bronze as well) will help fund this campaign #HPHgoestoRwanda. You can find out more about this campaign here.
As I mentioned in the beginning, I get easily overwhelmed with decorating so I thought of many places to put these prints but kept thinking back to our living room book shelf. I set out to the Dollar Store, got some frames and viola here you go the results:
I am quite pleased with how well these prints decorate our bookshelf and stand out. The message both spread are a good reminder to have love and above all to realize the help we are giving the Rwandan women.
Hands Producing Hope also sells accessories, necklaces and bracelets like the ones you see below:
Thank you to Rebecca and Hands Producing Hope for the prints displayed in this post. Prints were provided in exchange for a review, but all opinions shared are my own.
