Random Finds Are On My Mind

by | Blog News, Bride, Magazines and Books


Firstly I’m thrilled to the reaction to our Blog Action Day Post. it’s blown me away!

Secondly, after weeks of impatiently visiting my newsagent after reading Abby Jean’s post on how the new Martha Stewart Weddings ‘may just be the best yet’, I made the trek out to Borders and managed while muffling my squeals of glee) to find it and also snaffle a copy of the new InStyle Weddings. I’m sure this will lead to much inspiration you’ll see here on the blog in coming posts.

You may have noticed the beauty that is Etsy. An online art & craft market of sorts you can find anything from notebooks to bags to hairclips and soap. It’s really quite addictive and I love browsing and supporting new craftsers.

I found a blog completely devoted to Etsy Wedding Finds. A must read for any Etsy addict and for lovers of crafts! Check out Etsy Wedding for goodies tailored just for weddings!

Faye & Greer– a favourite blog of mine, are bidding farewell to their readers. I love Faye & Greer- a mum and daughter team they’ve provided me with great inspiration and I’ll be sad to see them go. Pop over and have a look at their entries.

Meanwhile another blog author- Lara at Ready 2 Spark ignited (hah) a challenge, which fits in perfectly with Blog Action Day and the environmental theme the blog world has going

What are you doing to introduce environmental sustainability into your daily life?

Here in the house of Ms Polka, with water restrictions in place already we do a few things.

1. We save extra water by putting a bucket under the tap in the kitchen sink (we use a surprising amount of water washing veggies etc) and showering with a bucket. These help water our garden.

2. We turn off monitors and appliances on standby at the powerpoint- Mr Polka’s pet peeve was that we never did this. It is a pain remembering to turn it on and off but it’s easy in the end!

3. We use our trusty ‘green’ bags when grocery shopping. If I get plastic bags these are used as bin liners.

I’ve chosen not to tag anyone, mainly because it’s already infiltrated my blogroll- but I will tag you!

What do you do to help the environment?

    We recycle everything, even though the council doesn’t pick it up for us we take it all down to the depo ourselves. It would be so easy to just put it in the bin but it is important to make the effort.

    Our hot water isn’t at the hottest and our septic tank recycles our water for garden use.

    We have a new block so we planted lots of trees, and will continue to do so.

    We use green bags at the supermarket

    I’m sure there is more but can’t think of it at the moment!
