Earl Grey Lavender, Organic Fair Trade Black Tea
The floral aroma of lavender is perhaps the perfect complement to the sweet citrus and full-bodied flavor of Earl Grey. The contemporary version of this classic blend was developed in French tea salons and has pleased the palate and raised the eyebrows of more than a few Earl Grey purists. Earl Grey Lavender is handcrafted in small batches and infused with pure essential oils of real fruit and flowers.
Now available at Craft Foundry!
"From a small framed arrangement to an entire facade, there is no limit to what you can create with the BrightGreen Living Wall Kit. Measuring 10x22 inches, our planting cells can be hung separately or in groups, forming one seemless vertical landscape. Graphically arrange your plants by shape or color into an ever evolving one of a kind work of art, certain to be the talk of the neighborhood."
Info about the first show:"In collaboration with North Bowl Lounge ‘n Lanes and two.one.five magazine, Fishtank PHL presents: Deconstructed Tools.
Deconstructed tools is a multidisciplinary exhibition choosing individuals to focus on the tool they value most in their craft —a painter’s brush, a carpenter’s hammer, a photographer’s eye. Individuals will conceptually deconstruct their tool and further focus in on a single aspect that defines its essence. In turn, the design process and related tool will transform into the design itself".
Free, and open to the public, opening reception October 7, 7-9pm.
The show is up for a week and the closing reception is October 15, so come and see it!
