VerTerra, a new eco-friendly servingware line, features dishes, plates, bowls, and cups made entirely from fallen leaves and water—no plastics or chemicals. The pieces have a wood-grain look and are oven-, refrigerator-, and microwave-friendly. They are sturdy enough to be hand washed and reused, but will naturally compost in under six weeks. Retail pricing (for packs of 100) ranges from $70 to $90, and wholesale pricing is available through the company.

The weather is different all over the country at this time of year.  Right now, some of us are slogging through snow and freezing cold temperatures, while others are basking in the warm winter sunshine.  Winter has just officially started, and Spring seems a long, long way off.  But do not despair, it will be here sooner than you think!  For those of you who long for bright green leaves, colorful flowers, and gentle breezes, this mood board is for you.  Enjoy!!
