Oh, Poppytalk,

I am in love with Dolores and the rest of the gang brought to life by Indianapolis Artist Rachel Hedges under the name Bebito. They are made from garments with an authentic past, with their futures in mind. Mischievous misfits, they each seem to carry a story...I heart all these lil "monthers."

Claire Dollan of My Favourite Dress. She puts such enormous care and thought into every detail of her sewn beauties. And she only uses 100% cotton or wool second hand fabric. She lives her life in the most eco conscious way that she can. She is truly an inspiration.

Great idea for these awards...those people choosing the eco-friendly way of business should absolutely be recognized for their actions. Hands down, my nomination goes to Daisy Janie for her delicious eco-friendly fabrics, and in their 2nd year, her crisp, ultra-neat eco-friendly calendars! Eco-friendly is what this lady is all about!
