I just wanted to share some of the recycling ideas that I found useful and decorative.

I absolutely love the tea cup curtain tiebacks in the link below. Fabulous.

I do have an old pair of jeans that suddenly got a large rip across the knee, but that would mean I have to patch or sew up the rip first.

Has anyone come across any great recycling tips?

We're having a bbq this summer, inviting all the neighbors. We've been in this valley for almost 9 years and there hasn't been one gathering. It'll be an even mix of native Indians from the reserve and whites, sort of a grass roots get together. My invitations went out two weeks ago on old christmas cards chuckle.gif

And when Whaler and I married, we gave away tree seedlings (that fell off a truck and I found in the ditch) instead of the usual bought crap wedding favors.

Quote:We’ve seen some amazingly elaborate cosplay over the years, and while we stare in awe, we’re usually too busy and wide-mouthed to think about how much the costumes cost. But what’s a money-strapped cosplayer to do? Anucha “Cha” Saengchart of Thailand-based website, Lowcost Cosplay, has the solution, bringing the world costume design ideas using things found around the house. Toilet paper, utensils, and oh so much flour is used to create impressive lowcost cosplay. Because when it comes down to it, cosplay is about the love of the character, not how much money you have.

I've been lucky like that my whole life, especially when I was building my cottage.
I needed 550 high strength, (a325), bolts, 7/8 diameter, and eleven times in two weeks I found them on my way home from work.

I planted wave petunias yesterday and saved the small plastic containers to use to start my herb garden from seeds chuckle.gif

Yeah, we always hang on to the little pots to start seeds. We've started basil in small milk cartons for years.

JR, no trouble from bacteria left over from the previous plant? I wash mine out with vinegar and soapy water,(doesn't seem to help, I can't get 10% of my seeds to the ground.
All the tomato, potato, and pumpkin seeds that got squashed into the soil in the fall are doing quite well though, but I have to pull the potatoes so I don't cultivate scab by using the same spot in the garden.
