Corinna blogs at For My Love Of. There, she shares an idea for creating art from nature. In Corinna’s case, she had some beautiful agate slices leftover from another craft project.
Cheryl blogs at The Creative Me and My McG. When the cushions of her garden swing seat became too damaged to use, Cheryl noticed that some patio chairs she’d saved from a neighbor’s garbage matched the swing frame and fit inside the seat area. She joked to her husband that it was too bad they couldn’t use the chairs as seats for the swing, and he took it as a challenge!
Over at her blog, Flimsy Pi, Karen explains that a friend gifted her with several old windows. “When we picked them up from her house my husband thanked her for ‘feeding my habit’,” Karen laughs. She decided to use the first window as a display for some handmade doilies, a gift from another friend.
Taking a different route home from her daughter’s gymnastics class one day, Allison of The Golden Sycamore spotted this empty frame sticking out of a trash pile. Even though she wasn’t exactly sure how she was going to use it, she threw it in the back of her car and brought it home.
I spotted this nifty rescue project by Amber from Averie Lane over at Kleinworth & Co. She came up with this idea for a garden wall using repurposed items when she was looking at a blank wall near her patio, one day.
At House By Hoff, April has been adding a few touches of summer to her home with some beachy decor. Inspired by pictures of some seashell art that her aunt texted her, April pulled out her collection of seashells and got to work.
