Utilize

In this day of shopping on the net and just buying everything new that you think you need, take a step back.

Utilize what you have and find a practical use for it--definition of utilize.

I'm an old soul and I keep history alive in everything I can.



I took an old side leg to a vintage sewing machine and made a side border for one of my gardens.

Need a light for the deck table at night. Take a 1.00 clay pot, turn upside down and put a 1.00 garden light in the hole. Works fantastic.


Want a new lamp to match the new chair, use the old lamp-buy and new shade and glue on a pretty trim that matches your new fabric.

Keeping up with everyone is a big task and and as soon  as you buy what they have, they have taken out a new credit card and are buying more.

These are great ideas, especially the porch light. You are very creative!

Very clever ideas. My favorite is your vintage sewing machine piece. I'm into repurposing stuff, too. Right now, my obsession is turning furniture and kitchen stuff into garden art.
