Reuse & Repurpose: Hot Stuff

Nothing makes me happier than seeing unusual objects gathered in the garden, especially when they are whimsically placed with joy and wit -- and even more so when I find them in the works of good friends. So this morning in the hotter-than-Hades Austin sun, I took my camera into the garden of my old pals Deb Kelt and Charles Hancock, and couldn't have been more delighted by the finds on display there -- the interior of an old fan, a wooden croquet set, an industrial air vent, a window frame, two sun-bleached lovebirds that remind me of the ones that sat on my parents' coffee table. Most were street discoveries, eloquently showing how other people's castoffs can instantly become another's treasure.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
