that is great... I am not sure if there is anything around here like that..this area does have a large "service" population..active & retired, very proud about it too.

weird stuff..just all goo...

that's great you have an outlet for the feathers..DH does tie his own flies and I have done a few...not near as good as his though. We just hang on to ours for the time being, they last a long time if stored properly...maybe the subject of "feathers" will come up somewhere along the way & will be able to do something else with them.
Talking about less wasted..
I was making biscotti , dog treats & caramel popcorn today... & thought about how much more use of the items we use, get used....like the eggs & the shells, citrus fruits..cleaners from the peelings/ freeze zest for baking-cooking/ just about anything extra goes to the animals...we throw away very little anymore. I have been keeping glass containers and using them for storing herbs/seeds..etc..& plastic bottles for seed starting, natural-cleaners...
I get this from people who don't understand...don't really care though..I make it all look good if that means anything..print out lables and decorate the containers.
It is funny how we have made this change, more out of saving every $$ we can from everything we can...
"use it up..
wear it out-
make it do
or do without"
