A simple wedding in several parts - location, guest list and invitations, accommodation

A simple wedding part 2 - the dress and flowers

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both. I've just read all the posts on your wedding and I love that it was a simple and family affair. In saying that (simple) we all know that even a simple wedding takes planning and money but it's your wedding and you did it your way and I loved the cake with the chocolate shells in it, a nice touch. I had the wedding of my dreams however unfortunately for me the marriage was a nightmare. We had 40 people at our wedding in a little chapel at Mt Tamborine and reception there as well then we came back to Brisbane and had "drinks" with other friends and work friends. I didn't want the bridal table sitting in front of all the guests as it seems like you are not a part of it. We opted for round tables and at our table had the parents and one bridesmaid and a groomsman. Glad you did something that was "just you" and after all it's your wedding. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

  6. Congratulations! I am in the planning or trying to plan or that is too hard part of the wedding thing. We want something simple but can't settle on a place. I love your ideas and Woodgate is a lovely area.

  7. Four years and counting...only a lifetime to go! If you're having fun with your best friend, time seems to fly by. If you're feeling miserable, time can drag. Sometimes its a mix of both. ;)

    Happy anniversary.

Chicken tractor guest post

Sign up for my weekly email updates here , you will find out more about chickens, soap and our farmlife, straight to your inbox, never miss a post!  New soap website and shop opening soon.... Tanya from Lovely Greens invited me to write a guest post on chicken tractors for her blog.  I can't believe how many page views I get for chicken tractors, they seem to be a real area of interest and I hope that the information on my blog has helped people.  I find that when I use something everyday, I forget the details that other people may not be aware of, so in this post for Tanya, I tried to just write everything I could think of that I haven't covered in previous posts.  I tried to explain everything we do and why, so that people in other locations and situations can figure out how best to use chicken tractors with their own chickens. The dogs like to hang out behind the chicken tractors and eat chicken poo.  Dogs are gross! If you want to read more about chicken tractor

Activated charcoal soap and salve

Since I started making my own soap, I've been enjoying trying new recipes, especially adapting them to use beef tallow.  See my post  Sustainable soap - 100% tallow!  for most about why I want to use up the tallow rendered from our own beef. I already sell 100% tallow soap (pure and simple), pink clay soap (pretty pink), lemon balm soap (green herb), neem oil soap (stinky neem) and coffee grounds soap (true grit) in my Etsy shop , and just recently I added my new black magic charcoal soap.  See the links at the end of this post for the other recipes. When I read about how this lady found that activated charcoal soap helped with adult acne , I really wanted to make some and give it a try.  I have had acne on and off since high school, and it really bugs me.  I found a  a recipe for ctivated charcoal soap  here, and then adapted it to suit tallow, with 25% coconut oil for suds.  It makes a really nice face wash, although I can't say its cured my acne completely.
