Just in time for Christmas we're restocked with one of our favourite plastic-free products: the beeswax wrap by @sustomi πŸ‘Œ These pretty little legends are a great reusable alternative to plastic wrap: just pop your leftovers in a bowl and use the warmth of your hands to mould the wrap over the top. .
They're also fantastic for storing bunches of herbs & veg in the fridge. You know how a bunch of coriander normally goes icky in a couple of days? Honestly, I've easily gotten a week out of the bunch by storing it in a beeswax wrap in the fridge. Amazing! 🌿🌿
.
Nut milk bags are also back in. Mine has been seconded to the Paneer unit lately: no fuss home made fresh cheese is da bomb! πŸ’₯
.
And if you've ever thought you'd like to have a go at making your own wraps we now have the Sustomi DIY blocks. These contain the perfect mix of Tasmanian beeswax, jojoba oil, and resin. Instructions included πŸ‘

Meet Gatsby! πŸ‘‹ Yesterday he became the Swamphen's newest (and youngest) maker. He's a champion cowrie shell finder, and decided to create a range of necklaces with his treasures so we can all share the cowrie love (πŸ‘‰ swipe for a close-up of these beauties)
.
Everything about Cowrie&Kangaroo has been designed and made by Gatsby, from tying the sliding knots to whipping up some recycled fabric and leather tags on the sewing machine.
.
These unisex necklaces are perfect gifts for beach walkers & island lovers. Take a little piece of Flinders Island wherever you go! 🐚

Sunshine and grass tree flowers! Summer is definitely on the way 🌞
.
These flower spikes are 2-3m long, and you can see why they're colloquially called kangaroo tails. Such a grand sculptural element in our landscape 😊

Wombats Onya Bottle!
.
I was on a bit of a printing jag yesterday... I had a go at printing on neoprene water bottle cosies. I'm impressed with how well they came out!
.
These stainless steel bottles from @onyalife come in 500ml, 750ml and 1L sizes. I've been using the huge size for a few months now and it's great to be able to take a day's worth of water in one reusable bottle. The opening is also big enough to drop ice cubes in (perfect for a day like today!). The neoprene cosy has a handy carabiner clip for keys, thongs, whatever ...
.
Now With Super Cute Wombats!! πŸ˜…

New tea towel print! I've had this idea floating around in my head for ages (I believe I did a post back in July with the original sketches πŸ™Š). So good to finally get it out!
.
They're printed on great quality Australian made hemp & organic cotton tea towels. I'll do some more colours over the coming weeks πŸ‘

I am so in love with these porcelain Shearwaters by local artist Fiona Stewart 😍
.
These beautiful birds come with either painted feathers or a decorative floral decal, and either a matte or glazed finish.
.
They also look great in pairs, so there's a discount for purchasing 2 at once 😊 $85 for a single, or $150 for two.
.
Five birds have found homes already; I think I'd better hurry up and choose one for myself!
