Keeping It Green, Redo's

The last week's Make Mine Pink Friday and this week's are almost the same in my mind. Recycling is a part of the crafting movement. We all take items-scraps of fabric, bits of lace, a small broken bauble- and turn them into something else. We take old worn furniture, give it a paint face lift and it has a new life. Taking our turn caring for antiques until it is time to pass them on. It makes me feel good to keep even a meager amount from the landfill and turning it into something I, and I hope others, will treasure. It is with these thoughts mulling around in my head that I have started offering a line of potpourri sold in containers - not something I have gone off and bought new, these are containers that I am recycling and making beautiful and useful again. My first is a really useful glass mug that I have embellished with ribbon, lace and faux pearls. A few millinery flowers and leaves completed the look. Here is my newest redo -

I have put a few around my home and am offering some to you as well. Hope you enjoy them.

For those of you who have enjoyed our Make Mine Pink Shop Hops, mark your calendars! The Mother's Day Shop Hop is going to start April 25. Great prizes will be offered (as usual!) and no purchase is necessary to participate. For those of you who have never joined in, come on over and enjoy browsing through the participating boutiques as you search for the hidden shopping bag. The more shopping bags you find, the larger the prize you will be able to be entered in a drawing for. It's fun, great shopping for Mother's Day and maybe a super prize for you! Doesn't get much better than that, does it?

Have a terrific week,
