Happy Earth Day Everyone!!

Well it is a gorgeous Earth Day here today........hope you are enjoying great weather where you are! I got to thinking about Earth Day, and all the things we do, like recycling our garbage, using green products to clean our home, etc. Well sometimes I forget to recycle, and I have been known to grab a bottle of uneco friendly cleaner here and there. But the one thing I am really good at is repurposing...........and every prim and cottage style decorater that I know is fabulous at that, and they recieve my kudos today. I am often just stunned at the trasnformations that I see on blogs and websites, of repurposed items, headed for landfills. I am a faithful Goodwill treasure seeker, love garage sales, and because of that I hope I am doing my part for saving the earth for my grandchildren, and future greatgrandchildren. Plus it is fun!!!!!! I did get a chance to hit the goodwill last week, but haven't gotten around to getting pics yet........but hopefully I will have a few to show you next week.

I have been busy this week filling spring orders, but I did get a moment to go to my treasure closet and find this old recipe box. The design by Donna Atkins I felt was perfect for it. Very prim, very basic, but love how it turned out.


  1. Happy Earth Day to you too!
    GWing is a great way to recycle and reuse!
    Have a great day!

  2. Jody,

    Happy Earth Day to you. We are helping to save the Earth with our repurposing now aren't we? LOL!


  3. Hi Jody~ thanks for visiting my blog:) I LOVE that box, how adorable! I love garage sales and thrifting too, but I have to have a sale of my own next month, that way I can go find more stuff!!!! It's awful when you have a small house, lol!

  4. Hi Jody! Love garage sales, flea markets, etc. We went to several last Saturday! Will have our own garage sale by end of summer. It is amazing how much we accumulate. And when we don't want it any longer, someone else might want it and adopt it as their treasure for awhile before passing it on. I like finding new homes for my stuff! Kat S.
