Memorandum Monday: Air Plants and Fresh Air

Oh goodness, 25% off at the ReStore for Earth Day and a free re-usable bag, how can one resist! Plus, they had my stuff down there! Wish I could have spent longer, they had all kinds of new goodies out!

Pretty sure I'll be using these two items together...epoxy is my best friend. Not sure what I'll use the handles on but they are epic!

The Corning ReStore had their Earth Day event set up on the construction side of the shop when I went this past Friday at lunch but they were hoping for sunny weather to set up outside the following day.

Can you see those little air plants on the right? I thought of putting those little plants in a little glass cup and ordered them a few from Amazon. I love air plants. I'll have to show you that idea later. Little glass cups seems to be a mainstay item at a second hand store, so maybe you'll want to give it a try. ;-)

On the subject of Earth Day & buying stuff at second hand stores:

Recycling means less garbage is going into landfills. Did you know: for every dollar generated in sales at the ReStore, 1.3 pounds of material is diverted from the landfill.

Anyhow, we're off this week Spring Breaking which means learning lots of interesting things, getting inspired by new horizons, and spending some time in outside in the fresh springtime air!

Hope Spring has finally sprung for Sian who is our sock knitting, scrapbooking hostess From High in the Sky. I hear she has a new driver, which is awesome, yet slightly scary so I am also giving her a high five!


  1. That 1st photo is breathtaking...delicate glass pattern along with sharp nails all with subdued of your strengths has always been your photography!! Print it out and frame it up!

    Your store sounds like an absolute treasure house. I'd love a visit. And I have agree about your photographs: the glass looks beautiful.
