Eco Friendly Friday



Here are some pictures of my eco friendly gifts.

The rug is made out of plastic bags. I made my girlfriend a ball of plarn and she made a rug out of it! I love this. I am going to put it by my door. It can be washed and lets face it.... it will never break down.

Next our my tea cup ordainment. I found all of these cup and saucers at a yard sale. I had the glue and ribbon. So far everyone I have given them to have loved them. I love them because the are unique and everyone knows how much I love tea.

I have an idea for next Christmas, so I will have to start looking for all the items....at yard sales and thrift stores!

Just remember to think outside the box, and you will be amazed at what you can come it up.

Reduce, recycle and reuse.

I am proud to know you as my friend and fellow American! Thanks for your kind, warm, truthful comments on my own "Old Soldier Tom's Journal" too. Grumpy old men need encouragement too.. lol.
And you are so full of good, "green" ideas and saving money!

Hugs,
Tom

Wow ... WOW!! What wonderful ideas! I love the rug ... it reminds me of something my grandma made years ago and you're right ... it'll never break down! Brilliant. And the cups and saucer ornaments ... how cool are they!!

I love how you have re-purposed stuff that might ordinarily end up in a landfill ... and you did it in such a beautiful way!

Thanks for sharing!!

I already saw this slideshow and was waiting for it to show up in your blog so I could comment. I do not like mugs. I like cups and saucers, so I love these. I buy almost every gift I give in the thrift store. And I am never ashamed either. Good books find me! We become magnets for special gifts. Good idea! Gerry
