ANSWER TO THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY: Sir Walter Scott Marmion, Canto VI, Stanza 17. There was some controversy about Shakespeare but the general consensus is Sir Walter Scott

Turning TRASH TO TREASURE, we’ve all heard the phrase. But how’s a person to do it?

I’d be lost without my husband around but, with him leading the way, it’s easy. He’s a wanna be carpenter – some of the time.

Both his brothers work with wood all day, while my husband sits in an office pushing paper to support his family. But at home, he manages to express himself with scraps of wood he finds at recycling centers. Here's just one example of what he's made with his scraps of wood.

Here's a story I wrote about Recycling Your Way to Romance, which was published by Romantic Homes magazine.

If you want to read the entire story of how to turn trash to treasure, read it here.

And the next time you think about throwing something away, think again.

Lovely story, Kim! Kimbra is your full name? I've never heard that name...Love it, it's as lovely as your stenciled flowers!

My mom had nine kids Kelly. I'm Kimbra Fay and my younger sis is Tambra Kay.

I think Mom was running out of names and just started making 'em up.

But, thanks.

I love trying to find new uses for things...I don't always do a good job of it, but I do try...

Love the names (yours and your sisters)...a very creative Mom you have...grin..

Brenda: Mom was craaaazy creative. I've written a lot of stories about her. She gave us recipes that are out of this world - with Pinky Dink soup.

Great post! Loved the table your husband made. We homeschool so we use a lot of recycled projects for crafts. This time of year is fun because of Halloween, followed by the Holidays. So much fun stuff to make!
