CLEVER Things I love!


I just love, love when people reuse things that would normally be discarded. Globes that are outdated is a great example. What a neat way to recycle this object. Perfect for a boys room.

Light bulbs recycled to look like hot air balloons, how sweet.  It just amazes me,   how people come up with such great ideas. Oh and it gets better!

This can be used as a wind chime or chandelier. Dig through Grandmas old cutlery,  or how many times have you  seen a bunch of mismatched forks at a garage sale?

A little bit of industrial chic. Waste basket up-cycled into a chandelier, clever.

This I just love. Vintage light globes as hanging planters. You can hang them inside or outside. 

Now here is something whimsical!! Must I say more? 

Here's a cute little project.  This could be embellished for the Christmas tree.  A teeny tiny birdcage made out of a bottle cap. How sweet. 

Now this one is "friggin clever" !!! This is made from an old file cabinet. How many times have you seen one of these in the garbage heap? A little Chalk Paint™ love and voila!!!!


How about this!!!! Old TV? Give Pooch a castle! Design it to go with your décor. 

A little Retro Chic!  Common..we all got some of these lurking around at the bottom of some box of photos that Aunt Millie passed on to you. Display your Grandma's vacation from 50 yrs ago!

Oh I have so much more to show you but I will save them for another post. So have fun and look around you and let your imagination run wild. I hope this inspires you to up-cycle. 

My Quote for the day:
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
