Reuse & Repurpose: A Colorful Can
Before we were allowed to tear into these goodies, he always made us wait until he could make a list of the gifts he received and the people who offered them so he could send appropriate thank you notes. And I am certain that this orange juice once received a hearty thank you the day it was offered to a favorite teacher. As my attention wandered to this cross-stitched wonder, the former teacher selling it told me that it sat on her desk for probably 30 years. And now that she was no longer working in the school, she was in the process of de-cluttering.
How could I pass up this heartwarming treasure -- priced at 25 cents? It now colors my world atop my own desk.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
