Etsy Artist - BAMBOO VILLAGE PRESS


I am so excited, impressed, and thrilled with this purchase from Etsy Artist, Bamboo Village Press, that I just have to share it with you ~ and HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check out her shop! I was searching for the "perfect" wedding gift for Luke and Kelsay, two of Andrew's best friends, when I found this, the Ai - Love Etched Decanter. I shared it with Andrew and he also thought it was a perfect fit. It arrived today and is even more breathtakingly beautiful - a real piece of art, in addition to being a wine decanter!

The "ai" is the Chinese character for "LOVE" and what I really am impressed about Celeste's work is that 25% of every purchase from Bamboo Village Press supports the Bamboo Village Educational Fund - a program set up to improve educational opportunities for children in rural Sichuan, China. There is a brochure included with the decanter that explains the fund and its work in great detail - very compelling!

I know that I will be returning to Celeste and Bamboo Village Press again (in fact, I've put the Ai Decanter on my own Christmas wish list - smiles!) and I hope you will, too, when you have special gift-giving occasions!
