Some clever re-cycling projects......

When it's garbage day at your house-
do you recycle or re-use or re-purpose some items
rather than throwing them into the land fill?
Below are some pretty darn clever examples
that were emailed to me.
There are a few that I think are silly-
and there are a few that I will try to make.
Which ones are your favorites? 
Have you ever made any of these?

Have a great day!


  1. Maybe the bird feeders, but outside of that I just can't see me wanting any of this type of stuff. Pretty clever though.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  2. Using that clothes hanger as a recipe holder is truly brilliant. Mrs. C. tapes her recipes to the cupboard and I can't wait to show her this.

  3. Loved the cheese grate earring holder. Fun stuff.

  4. Lovely way to recycle, beautiful photos, very creative.

  5. The piano one is cool, although the jeans made me chuckle.

  6. We recycle all metal containers, all plastics 1-7, paper, glass, plastic bags, all of it, but reusing/repurposing is in scant supply in my house.

    These are some clever ideas, i especially like anything reusing old clothing, which is one of the things we can't recycle here if it is not in condition to be donated,

    Haha, I love these ideas! Especially the clothes hanger as a cookbook holder. See, this is why I hate throwing stuff away. ;)

  8. What great and fun ideas. For me the recepy holder is nr one and the shoe bird feeder is lovely.

  9. some very clever ideas there, I particularly like the clothes peg hangers and the birdfeeder


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
