No more soap sales + being copied

I have discontinued soap sales, at least temporarily. I have had a lot of fun over 18 years making soap and meeting so many other interesting people. Thank you everyone .
Maybe I will get back to it again later, but meanwhile I will be making only for personal use and gifting..

ok...........so we are selling this house and moving elsewhere, so i figured to take
a  last few pics of our small yard . it has been great having such a small area after 
huge gardens in the past . back to large garden again.!!!
this is only half the yard.....you cant see the rest because the
washing is hanging out in it!!
after a wet, and thus humid, summer i can feel the tinge of autumn arriving.
it is welcome. i hate the heat.



  the dreaded spanish moss that i rather like. will have to remember to take some with me.
see what it does to monster gum trees that inhabit the new abode

a paper bark tree that has grown hugely in the last 11 years . the bark fascinates me.
the size of the tree may not be appropriate to the area however. we are not allowed to cut it down so it stays



chain of heats that takes years to grow and which got rather damaged in a clean up one day
not happy :-(




a quilt made by my fathers mother. well over 100 years old . the violet silk backing is all worn
and many of the squares are damaged. i dont have the skill to redo them or fix.





the bark




my favourite plant.......the original cutting came from
 a friends place in Mittagong.
it grew in a pot in an apartment in Chatswood,
 a cutting went to Killara, a cutting of that went to 
Thornleigh
 and a cutting of that .......came here.
 i have several cuttings ready to be planted in the new house.




height of the trees....too much light into the last picture but
 am not motivated to attempt to alter it

ummmmmmmm after looking at these photos i realise that the problem
with my camera that shows as a very light spot in the centre of pics........
is getting worse.
