We do our best to use what we have available to us instead of buying.
I wanted some simple curtains for our kitchen and used some linen and eyelet (both given to me by a neighbor moving). Mike made a birch branch rod and hooks to the hold the rod.
I am really excited about this rocking chair. I have wanted one for forever and now I do, so I will at least be able to rock our grandchildren some day.
It was perfect timing. Mike arrived at recycling at the same time as a person was throwing it away, it just needed a new seat.
I had been saving hay bale twine knowing that eventually I would come up with a use for it.
I have just a little bit more to go to finish, but I like how it is turning out.
Sometimes I wonder what our family would do if we didn't live in a country of excess....benefiting so from others' cast offs.
