Hello and welcome! I have always wanted to share with the world my perspective on design, living in our home (aka planet Earth), healthy & scrumptious eats, travel and every thing beautiful life has to offer. As a child of the 80's, I grew up recycling and always felt a strong tie to it. Newd elements is all about bringing new life to the old, with unadulterated, au natural bits and pieces. As the Native American proverb goes, "We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." These days, it is fun to see an old sweater re-fashioned it into a warm winter scarf, or a tote constructed from a pre-owned mens work shirt. It makes the treasure hunting all the more interesting! I hope to share with you through my posts and [happy] rants & raves what I find on the journey. Please enjoy!
