With home, gardening, shopping locally, green building, recycling, alternative energy and other green initiatives more and more of us will be jumping on the band wagon celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd. But heck....us trash hunters ....hmmm....make that treasure hunters, also known as vintage lovers, have been celebrating Earth Day for as long as we can remember....... me, personally for about 40 years. Here are just two more fun ways to revitalize and use some old things that otherwise might end up in a land fill. Those old forks that have gotten stained and bent out of shape......save those darlings and use them in the garden. Here I have used them to hold the tags that came with my herbs I just bought recently for my little backdoor herb garden I am making this Spring.
I adore this idea, which I got from the most wonderful gal with the best ideas blog....Savvy City Farmer. She did a post telling us all we need to get away from the plastic and bring back the beautiful old coffee carafes, adding a little romance to your morning coffee. I haven't found one of those yet but I did find this fabulous old silver plate chafing dish warmer. Look at those sexy legs! And don't you know...... it makes the most fabulous wine holder.....pretty fancy huh? Reinvent what you have! It's fun!
Coming to a Vintage Nest near you soon! Never ever to see the likes of a landfill! FABulous old finds. A gorgeous vintage pink blanket surrounded with the best petite rose covered satin binding....still in it's original package. A gorgeous old reticulated creamy white lamp with pink roses...wowzer and the sweetest little bird and a French restaurant ware creamer.....yum!
