Before and After











Never underestimate what you can do with found objects. Think outside the box, be creative and come up with your own twist on what the object can be used for. Here, I took an old milk bottle carrier, added a few little clay pots and herbs, and I now have my own herb garden in my kitchen that can be easily moved from one place to the next! I found this old , beautiful coffeepot for a quarter at a garage sale and planted a blooming cyclamen inside to perk up my dining room buffet. I think I need to add a little trailing ivy to make it complete. Creativity does not have to be expensive or time consuming...just use your "noggin" (as my mom would say) and see what you come up with! Most of all, girls, remember to have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning, My Friend..
You have inspired me once again. I have a similar old coffee pot I bought at some garage sale years ago. I'm getting it out!

Junk in just fun. We give it a new life.

Love you,
Trudy
