Recycling



Recycling is a worthy activity for young and old these days. But reusing is always the real challenge. I am on the lookout for new ideas for reusing old materials and when I found Jan Pinney's Art See Blog I just had to share. The clock is made from cardboard and the flowers from pop bottles. Be sure to check out January's archive where a mannequin leg is all decked out. Check it out.

P.S. Hello to all and I am back!

Welcome back! Great link to recycled art and oh, that mannequin leg, unbelievable.

D.C. Confidential said...

Yeah! Good to see you again.

The cows were Chicago. Since then, cities from coast-to-coast have done similar projects.

D.C.: Party Animals (Donkeys and Elephants) and Pandamania (Pandas)

San Francisco: Hearts

Baltimore: Orioles

San Jose: Sharks

I think Philly did Bells, but don't quote me on that one.

Sue O'Kieffe said...

is there any truth to the rumor that you might start blogging again?
miss you HEAPS

Frances said...

hellooooooo! I keep re-cycling and re-circling and coming back here, but never a peep out of you. Where are you darlin' one?

John said...

Raise some hell - put a peacock on a roof or something, huh.

I could be so much ruder if you allowed anonymous comments.

Bobbie said...

I'm sorry to have taken this unforeseen hiatus from blogging. To tell you the truth I have not been well and mean to post, but somehow don't have the energy to actually do it. I have become a little more anemic due to a chronic kidney problem and so have become rather lazy and slothful.

But!

I am turning over a new leaf and will be eating right and taking some herbal supplements which I hope will restore my energy level. In the mean time I am going to fight back and try to get back on my regular schedule.

Thank you good friends for checking on me and spurring me on. I love each and every one of you .
