The Upcycled Garden Volume 3: Using Recycled Salvaged Materials In Your Garden


This is my third Upcycled Garden blog post! There are so many smart and creative

ways to use salvaged and recycled materials in your garden landscape that I 
thought the topic well deserves more than one single post! 

Here is my collection of  Upcycled Garden inspiration. Enjoy!

Use stale ice cream cones as seed starters. Plant them directly into the soil.

I had to include this awesome garden art by Tadpole Creek Creations

I hope you have a great week

My Cup Of Tea - Teacup Crafts & Home Decor


Teacups are great for repurposing into crafts and home decor projects!
They're inexpensive, colorful, interesting, and their unique shape can be
used to hold or store items. Check out these great ideas for repurposing 
teacups and maybe you'll be inspired to create a similar project yourself! 

I think my favorites are the simple planters. What could be easier?
I think they'd look great on a window sill.


































































Teacups as hooks for aprons - great for the kitchen!



Hookmaker Teacups add grace where it is lacking; it holds your knickknacks and trinkets, and has a hook for you to hang your keys. I’d like to hang a bunch of these together, just for their dramatic effect.
