A great workshop on reducing waste, recycling and worm farming


Last weekend we had our Simple Living Toowoomba 'War on Waste' workshop which was really well attended. I am sure we could have kept going for a few more hours as there was so much interest in this topic.

Stay Put Towels

During our recent holiday at the beach I had the pleasure of meeting up with some ladies from the former Down to Earth forum (which has now closed down) and The Homemakers Forum which some of the members started so that we all didn't lose touch.

One of the ladies who I have known for a few years, Judy, is the most talented craftsperson and can sew, crochet, knit and so on and so forth and for my recent birthday she surprised me by sending me this lovely mug rug that she made. Isn't it just great?

A Perfect Day

Even though we are experiencing above average temperatures this winter with a couple of days coming up when it will be 10 degrees hotter than average, it was perfect weather for catching up with old friends for an outside lunch at one of my favourite local spots, Danish Flower Art. I have mentioned this fabulous tourist attraction before in the posts Having a Gourd Time and and Danish Flower Art...Home of the Gourd Bird.

Are you sure it is winter?

The weather has been so warm recently that I have had to keep reminding myself that it actually still is winter. We have just had the warmest July on record in our region and in other areas of Queensland as well. I am not sure what it has been like down south but considering it was snowing there a few days ago I don't think they are enjoying our balmy weather.

Good Onya, Onya!

Have you ever heard of Onya products? Well, I must have been living under a rock as I hadn't until I read about them in a recent  Simple Living Toowoomba blog post. So I followed the link and did a bit of reading about how the company started up, how their products are 100% recyclable and when possible are made from recycled material such as rPET which is a fabric produced from recycled plastic water bottles.
