I LOVE repurposing! I enjoy making something beautiful & useful out of someone else’s trash. All those seemingly useless things sitting around the house, basement & garage can be put to good use. You can make incredible things out of them. In fact, many of the things I make I am then able to sell in my gift shop. What a win-win! You are able to clear out unused items AND make some money at the same time, more money than you would hold a yard sale! And you have fun while doing it!
Not sure what to make or how to begin? Country Living is ready to get you started with this HUGE list of craft projects that recycled materials. Take time to go through the list. Look around your home. Then pick one! Believe me, after 1-2 projects, you will be hooked! Enjoy!
I LOVE finding new uses for items. I am working to develop my sense of visual creativity, allowing me to see discarded items in a new way.
In Granny’s day, mason jars were used for canning. And maybe for storage. Dad would sometimes sneak a few out to the garage to hold nails & the like. However, the uses for Mason jars were fairly limited. Not anymore. Mason Jars are being used to create a variety of dishes from oatmeal to dessert. I know any day now, I’m going to see a Mason Jar restaurant advertised! It’s only a matter of time!
Today, I’m sharing a great recipe from Cooking.com. Martha Tinkler has created a fabulous frittata in a Mason Jar. You can make them ahead, then cook them for dinner. Serve right in the jar. Your family is going to LOVE them! Enjoy!
In case you haven’t heard, California is going through a drought. To help conserve water this year, I have laid ground bark in the areas where I normally grow vegetables & flowers & plan on only growing these items in containers this year. On blazing hot days, I can move containers out of the hot sun. More important, I won’t use as much water keeping my plants hydrated during the growing season. Southern Living is helping me out with this article featuring 101 different container garden ideas. You can have a garden no matter where you live. Enjoy!
