Re: Introduce yourself to the community

@Dola welcome aboard, & to set you up, I think I've found a great blogger tip for removing paint from furniture:

 

http://www.thisoldhouse.com/how-to/stripping-painted-furniture

 

I've not done it, but her method works best when the plastic makes intimate contact with the stripper, so maybe apply Glad-Wrap (with the stippling brush method) to the fiddly bits? :think:

Hi All, My name is Alysia and I reside in the lovely town of Mackay.
I have a passion for Native Plants and love to grow new varieties from seed, I also love designing native gardens.
I am a big fan of using organic and Old fashioned solutions to solve common problems rather than chemicals and I love teaching people about Companion Planting.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Welcome aboard Clive, you'll love this community, it's chocka block with helpful & cool people. You're expertise will be greatly appreciated, I do my best to help where I can, but there've been times when I'm completely floored. :grin:

 

It's also great to have another teenage senior in our ranks, there are a few of us, but I'm definitely the larrikin of the group. You're welcome to step into that role too if you like, I need someone to back me up. :wink:

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

A huge unofficial welcome me Alysia, & I'm sure, the complete Workshopper community.

 

You'll love it here, there's a wide spread of interests & expertise, plus they're all wonderful people.

 

I'll definitely be hanging out for your contributions, as I'm also mad about native gardening, & an avid zero chemical gardener. :bigsmile:

@mountainman,

Hi Clive,

A warm welcome to you from someone who will be trying to lay tiles in our new build perhaps next year. Still plaster, painting etc... to do first!!

Looking forward to be "floored" (pun intended) by your stories perhaps as a tradie. I'm sure you have some doozies!!

Cheers,

Barbara

@LilShep,

Welcome Alysia to the community.

I commend you on your dedication growing plants from seed. A very long and drawn out process fraught with allot of failure and also amazing successes.

Our daughter grew several hundred ficafolia's from seed that she collected and with absolutely no prior gardening experience, was very successful and her small property, also in a lovely country town, is adorned by her flowering gums.

I always loved a neat as a pin garden and love spending time in it as often as possible.

Cheers,

Barbara

Hi Clive (@mountainman)

 

A very warm welcome to Workshop. It's wonderful to have you join the community. I'm excited that you are so keen to share your vast experience and knowledge with the community. I'm sure that you have a lot to offer. I also hope you find plenty of inspiration and information here, and have plenty of fun.
