Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Maria from Betta Water Filtration

WATER that is, keep drinking lots of good water... it's been hot out there and you need to hydrate. I know some of you struggle to drink enough water. It makes all the difference if it doesn't taste of chlorine. YUCK. Here's what two clients recently said "The filter is wonderful, working fine and tastes soooo much better!" Nicky.
“We are so pleased we invested in our water filtration through Maria at Betta Water Filtration. I had a few concerns about installing a filter due to the lack of space under the bench, however, I needn’t have as the filter is neatly tucked away in a corner. There is a noticeable difference in the taste and texture of the water and I am enjoying the fact there are less chemicals in it. Thanks Maria." Steph

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
