The US Consumer Safety Commission has recalled Pure Allure items sold at Michael's. Appears that the items were made in China and contain a dangerous amount of lead (is there a safe amount?)

I'm beginning to think that my Grandmother's aversion to buying items made in China wasn't a bad thing. Not bad at all.

I came across this at Beadweaver's blog and decided to pass it along in case anyone's bought or used these items.

Raining today - after 4 inches of snow followed by sleet and rain last night. A good day to cozy up to the Ott Light (don't care what anyone says - there's just not enough natural light here in the winter to work by) and work to finish my September page. Still nearly 3 months behind.

Today's quote comes from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.

Yea. Your grandmother is right, but, it's tough to find anything that's NOT made in China... And, imagine this, when I was in London, I found more things made in the USA than I ever do here! But, I didn't buy it because it would have been twice the price! Something is very wrong with that...

Very nice icon! I agree with you. It is hard to find things made in the USA. Grandma was complaining about that 25 years ago.
