Thanks for that info! It probably isn't Homer Laughlin since it would have been bought in Australia in the 1930s! I have only seen it about twice because no-one uses it but I swear it has that same shape with an orange trim rather than green and then multi-coloured little cottage house scenes. Hmmmm, I'm going to have to go and dig it out and check the back!

I ordered some things from Replacements this morning ... one of these plates (I bought a platter in this pattern from my local antique mall & loved it, so checking out the pattern further):



and several of these ramekins to go with the 3 I already have (these are perfect for baking an individual serving of whatever):

Oh this is one of my favourite topics! Hehe.
I try to buy organic as often as possible. If I see organic clothes that I like I try to buy them. I love second hands. I bicycle or walk almost everywhere. I always say no to plastic bags. I have some organic make up. Trying to be better at it... + I try to shop less. But this is very hard for me when it comes to clothes and shoes. Soon I will try to make my own organic muesli

^ Cool ... here's the pic:



I have similar curtains in my bedroom made of rectangles of felted ivory wool sweaters in all kinds of different patterns. They're fun to look at ...

what a lovely thread! I love reading everyone's ideas ... I would love to add vintage china and silverware. We didn't register for anything fancy for our wedding, so we still don't have any formal dinnerware, and vintage sounds like a great way to go.

what I've been doing is:
- recycle
- use energy efficient light bulbs
- I always bring my own utensils, plates, cups, etc to work
- eat organic when I can. I am lucky in that my mother-in-law has a wonderful vegetable garden which supplies us with much each week.
- eat very little meat, especially beef
- quite a few pieces of furniture we bought used. of these, my dining table and coffee table are made from reclaimed wood for 100 year old floorboards.

I still have a long way to go, especially in regards to water conservation, reducing my amount of everyday trash, and reducing our gasoline consumption. Also, I'm still trying to reduce my overall consumption of clothing/shoes/etc ... this one has been hard, but I think I'm finally starting to make progress!

^ tourist, glad you like the thread I think vintage dinnerware & silver are the best--so much more to choose from, and at relative bargain prices for the great detail & design. If you want to learn more about what's out there, check out the collectors' books at the bookstore. I also have vintage glassware. The only contemporary glass I was able to find that I like was Baccarat--I pay a lot less for the vintage patterns I collect Although--you can certainly pay Baccarat prices for old glass. I found my silver pattern by looking around on eBay at what was available--I needed some extra serving spoons.

I've been shopping for a vintage chest of drawers--instead found a really lovely Deco-influenced '30s carved oak glass-front bookshelf with shallow drawers at the top. It's happily sitting in my dining room as we speak, delivered today ... this is the first piece of oak furniture I own, the only oak I had was my floors

I love the brand Organix. It leaves your hair super shiny and the smell is so pure and long lasting. I use the Shea Butter - it's a blend of with yogurt proteins, avocado oils and shea butter.

the pomegranate green tea also smells very good. they all contain different ingredients.

I like Aveda ... currently using Shampure, but I've liked pretty much everything I've tried.

Thanks for extracting the picture! The curtains sound beautiful, did you make them yourself and do you have a picture?
