Sustainable Living: The simple, good life
The festive season is here! My wish for you is that your celebrations are delightful, meaningful and sustainable, whatever path you follow.
Winter cold is upon us in my part of the world. This means less time spent outdoors in fresh air and sunshine. I think it makes sense to make our indoor environments as fresh and non-toxic as possible, too.
There are lots of resources to help us do that, from magazines and television to books and websites. What I do here at Smallbones is try to help with the simple, consumable products that we all use every day. Gifts made of natural ingredients, antique linens (organic by default), and vintage items that have stood the test of time are sustainable ways to show you care!
What is sustainable living? Living sustainably means small things that add up to a healthier life for you, your family, and the planet. I make pure, natural & organic soap, honestly natural lip balms & skin care, natural skin & air fresheners, eco-friendly gifts — things that help you enjoy healthier and less toxic life.
I’m also offering my mother’s treasure trove of antique and vintage linens and laces – a few of them here and many more in my Etsy shop. She saved things from her parents’ generation as well as her own. There are exquisite and quite rare laces, beautiful hankies, a few pieces of clothing, linen towels, tablecloths, vintage aprons and many other things. In the “Smallbones Creations” section of the shop are eco friendly things I’m making.
Smallbones is the home of natural, made on site, environmentally friendly, vegan and reasonably priced solutions for everyday sustainable living. No green-washing here!
My name is Jane. I call myself an eco-artisan. The spirit of my old (1855) house and my background as an environmentalist melded to create Smallbones. To learn more or just for fun, visit Smallbones Blog (link above). The blog is where I expound on some of my passions and pass on information that may be useful to you.
No chemicals, artificial ingredients, or animal products are used in Smallbones’ products. ALL ingredients are clearly listed here on the website as well as on the labels. Compare Smallbones’ ingredients with what’s in your home now.

Chair Caning & Candles
After decades as a vegetarian I became vegan in 2012, so I’ve hung up my beeswax chandler’s hat. You can now visit Susan Rouse of Cedar Cove Wellness to order your candles.You may notice that chair-caning is also no longer on the site, and that’s because I’ve had to stop doing it. There’s only so much time in the day!
