Oh my, it's been awhile since I was last on the blog! Things have been busy around here with the family so I haven't had much of a chance to up date things here. I have a few new flower presses that I will share soon. But today is Sharing Sunday and I have a special one for you.
I don't know if you've heard but our precious bees are dying at alarming rates. And without bees we have will have no food to eat. Well, real food anyway. I don't know about you but I far prefer real food over processed, factory made artificial stuff.
Recently, scientists discovered that a pesticide called “neonics” is the cause of the bees dying. Sadly, big retailers are still selling the products that contain these deadly pesticides. If we can get just one of them to stop then the others will follow and stop selling them too.
Anyway, if you want to read more and sign a petition to stop Home Depot and Lowes, and other big retailers, from selling this product click here: Help Save the Bees
Meanwhile, on a lighter note, I have found some beautiful pieces on Etsy, all with a wonderful bee theme.
All artists are Canadian and their links are below. Enjoy!
