Dolly's teacher had a birthday last week. Being the frugal Eco gals we are, we didn't want to buy a gift that would just be more landfill rubbish, clutter or cheap.
Dolly decided she wanted to give a homemade gift of Honey Cinnamon Butter that we saw on the Internet. During our op shop stints we searched for the perfect vessel and spreader, found our goodies for $2, took them home, gave them a soak in boiling water and a super duper scrub.
Dolly spent the last of her energy making her delightful spread with butter, honey, cinnamon and sugar. Once done she carefully spooned the spread into her little op shop pot and placed the cute tea cup spreading knife on top.
And voila her lovely gift to her super wonderful Teacher. Inexpensive in money, but luxuriously made with love.
and as a Greenie bonus she also gave a bag of goodies she harvested from our Botanical Gardens plot.
|Spinach, eggplant and ginger from the garden.|
And our neighbour Mt T, received some leftovers which he ate quickly as it is so delicious.
|Mr T - Loves good food.|
Dolly is off to her 1st school mate birthday party tomorrow. I am having a mini stress about the gift... Not everyone are open to recycled, upcyclced - preloved gifts. And I don't want to make Dolly turn into the Wacky One.. So I may have to break my personal consumer rebellion commitment to myself of nothing new.
What do you do about gifts???? Feel free to comment, lots... I love your comments.
