Beautiful Bracelets From Sashka Co. That Support Families In Need

If you are anything like me, you can never have enough bracelets to match your fashion ensemble. I have a bit of a weakness when it comes to jewelry, especially if it is unique and hand-crafted. So when the  Sashka Co. contacted me about sending a few free bracelets in exchange for an honest review, I jumped at the chance! And WOW, I'm glad I did! These bracelets are really lovely, and by purchasing them, you are supporting families in need. Sashka Co. Bracelets has already donated 3,019,000 meals to families through Feeding America. I love that about this company!

When I first received my bracelets, they were a little too snug for my wrist (and I have very small wrists). I asked for larger sizes and the company was very accomodating. My new bracelets arrived yesterday and I was amazed at how well they are made. Each bracelet is hand-crocheted bead by bead with positive vibes by skilled artisans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. The bracelets are made with cotton and some of the world's finest glass and sterling. They are not stretchy, but they do have some give to them and will roll over most size wrists. Even better, the Sashka Co. offers a lifetime guarantee and a perfect fit promise. They want you to be happy with your purchase and will handle any aspect of your order that you need to be changed. 

According to the company, "Sashka Co. partners with several organizations in Nepal that train and employ hundreds of artisans in rural communities. Our partners are focused on gender equality and empowering women.  The women at the co-ops earn a living wage that exceeds the local minimum wage. Sashka Co. was founded in 2013 with an amazing team of seventeen artisans. Thanks to the support of Sashka Co. Bracelets customers, we now provide sustainable jobs to 450+ artisans in Nepal. Sashka Co. is an official member of the Feeding America Enterprise Society. Donations from Sashka Co. to Feeding America will be matched by Tony Robbins through the 1 Billion Meal Challenge providing twice the impact.  Every $1 donated to Feeding America helps secure and distribute at least 10 meals to people facing hunger through the Feeding America network of food banks."  

I really love my beautiful bracelets and have already received tons of compliments on them. I think you will love them, too. What are you waiting for? Order yours today!

Fly On The Wall Returns To The Renaissance Festival

Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, there are three of us opening our homes so that you can see what goes on behind closed doors. 

This month the fly accompanied me to the local renaissance festival....again. The fair is in town for 7 weeks, so I will be visiting a few more times ( just can't get enough of those turkey legs!) but I thought I'd share some photos of my first weekend there. For the past few years, I've been dressing up as a fairy rather than in the heavy dresses and capes I once wore to the festival---it gets pretty warm here, and multiple layered dresses, headpieces, and gobs of sparkly fake jewels do not go over well in 85-degree temperatures. Thank God we live in the time of A/C and battery-operated hand-held fans! 

So sit back, munch on a turkey leg, and enjoy some mead while you scroll back through time......

Gotta give this character credit---he wore his mask!

I love men in kilts....makes you wonder what's under all that plaid....

This dude has been my special pirate for over 38 years now...and he's a good sport for putting up with my fairy mischief at the Ren-Fest.

The stuff that nightmares are made of!

I think the wine and mead were kicking in at this point.

Loving on my sweet daughter. Always a good time when we go out together!

Should I tell this lady to "leaf" me alone?

Take me to your castle and feed me a turkey leg!!

Oh yeah, the wine and mead were DEFINITELY kicking in at this point. 

A GREAT time was had by all! Can't wait to go back again!!!

****WANT MORE MENO MAMA? You can catch me this month over at AARP/The Ethel where I'm sharing some yummy crockpot recipes (read it HERE), and in another article for them, I'm sharing the best dogs for women to own (You can read it HERE
