Handmade by Mama......

I started this year (or was it last year ???) promising myself to buy as many handmade gifts as possible. I have sort of stuck to this pledge - well, kind of, well a few here and there............mainly for least I tried. I bought a few things from here and here. They were very well received. And then I stepped it up to a whole new level..............I actually made a gift MYSELF. I have been a long time reader of Maya*made and recently purchased her reinvention skirt PDF pattern - or in short, how to make a gorgeous skirt out of an old T-shirt.......recycling at its best!!! And here's the result - apologies for my photography.
ps this used to be a $3 T-shirt from my local Salvation Army shop.
pps this skirt isn't actually crooked - just really really bad styling !!!

Organic tomatoes.......did you know ???

Did you know that conventional tomatoes are sprayed with pesticides and insecticides and all the other "-cides" up to 30 times during their life cycle ?? I found out this astounding fact during the recent Organic Expo in Sydney.

Buy organic....................PLEASE ???

One big warm mama hug to ORGANIC FEAST.....

Organic Feast is the newest member of The Organic Mamas family - they are stocking our Big Mama and Small Mama shopping bags. On Friday I had the absolute utmost pleasure of visitng Julia of Organic Feast and what a feast !!
The Organic Feast is both a brick and mortar shop in East Maitland, NSW as well as an online store featuring everything organic. It really is my kind of shop - fruit and vege, all kinds of food products, books (oh, how i love books!!), clothing, toys and absolutely fantastic certified organic shopping bags (nudge, nudge, wink, wink !!) - I could have spent hours in there browsing the aisles. And not to mention the wonderfully friendly and happy staff.

It really makes me proud that my little old home town has such a wonderful organic store - and that it is thriving and is really the envy of this now-city gal. I really can keep going on and on ........but go and check it out yourself!
