While perusing for ideas for another DIY/green/budget bride, I came across this great idea for t-shirt tissues. We were planning to (and may still) put out vintage handkerchiefs for those that needed to clear up happy tears during the ceremony or reception (extra for our MOH). This is a fancy, eco-friendly alternative to paper tissues. However, we've only gathered about 10 at this point (hat may be enough, but I'd rather have too many than run short) and I'm a little afraid to wash them when we're done. Using t-shirts would be a cheap, easy to find, reusable (at home, as rags) and easy to wash alternative. I especially like how the tissues were dressed up with the vintage bucket for disposal.

    What's our story?

    Tarah works for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and has been living in Sacramento for nearly all of her earthly years. She lead a mostly uneventful life, though she always had a love of written, visual and performance art, holds an interest in politics and still can't resist animals.  Josh is a former punk rock musician who is back in college, volunteers with the Sacramento SPCA and blogs about the video gaming industry at 1Up.Com(Electronic Gaming Monthly). He was born in California and traveled around, mostly growing up in  Reno, NV and Southern Oregon.  With his band, he toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe. After the disolvement of his band and a couple years of contemplation, the groom moved from Portland, OR, down to sunny Sacramento.  A month later, the bride found his platonic ad on Craigslist. He was looking for locals who could show him around town, and Tarah knew just the right places to go. The two started a wonderful friendship that blossomed into the unbreakable relationship they enjoy today.  They share strong values for equality amongst people, humane treatment for animals, using diplomacy before voilence, and respectful care of the environment through personal responsibilty and accountability.
