Recycle Turn a Broken Chiminea into a Garden Planter

Everyone loves the simple pleasure of a chiminea.  When they become damaged, stop using them for small fires and recycle them into something else.  After all, they were once something special to you, right? 

The chiminea survived the hosue fire and was actually usable after it was cleaned up.  Then it took a spill off the porch landing into the flower bed and cracking it.  Not safe anymore to use holding a small fire but it IS still usable.  This is what we turned it into.

Planted inside is a variety of wild flower seeds.  Already sprouting inside.  Placing a salvaged wooden bowl into the top allows for water to come through without washing all of the dirt and seeds away.  Planted inside the bowl is cusumbers, again, already starting to sprout.  The metal stand for the chiminea was saved for another use...  Read More

Recycle Garden Decor Knome Ball

We gather, save and find bits and pieces of things and save them simply because they look like they could be a usable part of something creative later.  Here is an easy way to make a garden decor item using some unusual pieces.   photo img_3909.jpg  photo img_3911.jpg
The base was once a glass ball holder, the silver ball was once a piece of a light chandelier and the garden knome was once a knome sitting on a mushroom with a stake to push into the flower bed.  All three pieces were saved from broken items.  Put them all together and create your own unique garden decor item simple and easy. 

Hoping you enjoyed our share.  God Bless from Annabellas

Recycling Part 2 Bird Baths

Here we will share some creative ideas we came up with using bits and pieces of discarded items which we saved from the landfill by turning them into a usable item! 

Bird baths.  You either pay an outragiously high price (hoping it lasts) for one or you buy a cheaper one that usually last one, maybe two seasons.  Here we will share using some items used to make two bord baths that are in use now and everyone is noticing them.  Especially the beautiful singing birds. 

recycled bird bath photo img_3907.jpg This bird bath was made reusing a smaller fire pit bowl that was thrown away by another when the stand broke.  An antique water well concrete pipe and a rock.  Since this stand was not in the better of shape, it was set using a small metal stake in the center, stood the concrete pipe up with the rod in the center and filled in with bits and pieces of broken bricks making it...  Read More

Are You Doing Your Part To Recycle?

Are you doing your part by recycling?  Repurposing?  Reusing?  Reclaiming?  Let your imagination run wild and give it a try.  As the planet ages and population grows we find ourselves thinking on this subjet more so than our ancestors did.  If you take the creative out the box approach it can be loads of fun (and pride) helping keep things from piling into landfills. recycle photo: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle recycle.png recycle photo:  recycle.jpg
I had gotten this antique body dress form and had a blast mending and redoing it.  I used it in taking photos until it was lost in the house fire.  Still, I loved tackling the task and sharing it with others.   photo img_4479.jpg  photo img_4494.jpg
Never think you cannot without trying.  :).  Soda and water bottles are being used for all types of things.  Old tires.  Old scrap wood.  Old t-shirts.  The possibilities are only as endless as your imagination and desire. 

As a seller we can all do...  Read More
