I love indoor house plants and have them scattered around my home. I also love salvaging and recycling containers as pots and have collected many of my plants from piles of dumped garden waste in bushland. This is one of my favourites.

I'm getting better at letting go of all those urgent tasks that don't really matter and focusing on what truly matters. Now, if only I could learn to not feel guilty about all that i've chosen not to do. p.s. Ethical clothing can be cute. In the above pic Little Eco wears a vintage top from the Reuse Center at Sandgate, a pre-loved skirt from Preloved Kidswear, and a handmade hair-clip... Read more →
