I receive soooo many catalogs. I'm sure that my mailman hates me. (Actually, he's a great guy, and always has time for my dogs and a chat). Luckily, I live in an area that has curbside recycling. I would feel terrible receiving these former trees if we didn't.
You would think that with the advent of easy online shopping, catalogs would go the way of the traveling salesman. However, there are still plenty of people out there who shop this way.
My first catalog consideration is "Viva Terra". The name conjures up visions of organic what-nots, zen gardens, and hiking sandals, but the circular is quite eclectic with interesting and varied offerings.
I saw this pic over at Sue De Chiara's place www.thezhush.blogspot.com (check it out, it's fantabulous!) It's from the online portfolio of design firm Mabley Handler.

I must disclose that I have yet to purchase from Viva Terra. (also www.vivaterra.com)
I am impressed with their collection, and would not rule out a purchase in the future.
I would love to hear from you if you have had any dealings with them.......especially with the charcoal soap!
Have a Great Weekend........K
