These bags are hot from London- Anya Hindmarch, "I'm NOT A Plastic Bag", sounds like "I'm a human being, not an animal".

They look fantastic, great message you are sending out, not quite there yet- ZYC are searching for the highest green cred. shopping bag. They have to look good, be reusable, good quality and long lasting, ideally made from organic fabric or other re-purposed fabric, and at the end of it's life- be recyclable or biodegradable. We don't want much.

Still love my Anya! I think it's the nautical theme?



Got myself a solar charger for the phone- I am truly mobile now! Put it on the dash of your car.





Some people have been asking for more retro decor- so, this is my Midwinter collection. It is Stonehenge Earth- most I was lucky enough to get from op shops, but the large platter was a bargain on Ebay. So for a retro, redecorate- consider pre-loved items.






Also floor vases are a great add to the decor- this one came from Salvos- it was displayed as decoration only- not for sale, with the worst plastic flowers in it. It took a second glance to realise it was mid-century Italian!







More great vases- you guessed it that's my obsession! Pots! What's yours?

What's you style?- mine is retro, south pacific, eclectic! The day-bed below is recycled hardwood from a local supplier- Byron Design Works. The bamboo lamp was freebie saved from the tip. The funny thing was, we had just purcased a modern, metal lamp which has now rusted from living near the beach.






Thought I would mention-everybody loves Nel in her tee- of course you would she's stunning and 17 with amazing skin, so if there is enough demand for them we'll start producing more. A few details- they are American Apparel, sweat-shop free, baby rib cap sleeve. The local supplier for these is fullystoked.com Fully Stoked donates 30% of their annual profit to conservation and environmental production. How's that- great effort. The printing was done locally. We are aiming for 100% organic cotton. Linda

"I have no doubt that this will be a successful tool for communicating climate change cause you explain it soo.... simply. Most of us are dumb and rather than admit it pretend that we know exactly what's going on while doing nothing. You can't fail, Linda because you're not bulls'ing anyone." Olivia, Mullum.

Girls, save some energy hairdrying- get yourself a wig for a bit of fun and extra warmth this winter. Linda



Hey, all you inventors out there- can anybody make my sunnies double as solar panels to power up my iPod. Now that would be cool!

Nelly.

Over the last 4 years I have been op shopping and collecting retro mid-century crockery. Now I have the coolest eclectic collection of Midwinter, Arabia, Mikasa and Wedgwood crockery- just love it. It doesn't all match, but I stuck with similar colour scheme and style. Looks so expensive but it wasn't. L.

Thought I'd add my french provencal table that I purchased for a steal- so cheap I don't want to brag. The table came from my favorite second hand market. R.
More of my collectables from op-shops and second hand shops- I feel I can still achieve an incredibly glamorous home at a fraction of the cost whilst using pre-loved items, supporting recycling. R.

Check out my $A10 trench that looks a lot like a Burberry. I bought it from an op-shop- just a little cleaning and it's good as new. L.
