Earth Day

Recycle, Reuse and Renovate...

Using junk is a great way to show the earth we love her; keeping trash out of the landfill and in our gardens as innovative garden art is the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day.


If you're already a junquer, making great garden art out of things that others throw away, you have a head start. 

I've been intrigued with this form of recycling for years, long before it became the thing to do, and I've been trying to save the earth single handedly ever since.

Now, you can do your part and love the results. Check out the crafts below for more; click on the pictures;
