My sweater blanket was featured in the October issue of All You magazine. I like the fine print at the bottom of the page — “This idea comes from Jennifer Moore in Kittery, Maine, who blogs about sustainable style at recovergirl.wordpress.com.” That’s better than a stick in your eye. xo jam
This inspires me. Think of the things you could do with a bunch of Wiffle balls. I know, right. They are just begging to be made into an installation art piece. Image above via Mark’s Blog.
I was cruising craigslist/newhampshire/furniture to find a side table or whatever. I came across this person in Hillsboro, NH that makes outdoor furniture out of solid hardwood pallets. I like the primitive look.
They remind me of the Tom Dixon offcut stool.
Alls you’d have to do is buy inexpensive primitive furniture locally and paint it in a fabulous pop color. Presto — Chango — and you have a fabulous statement piece.

I know. Right.
I am so inspired by Community of Athens, Georgia. I found out about them through Pinterest but it looks like word is spreading quickly about them because of an article in the New York Times about the city of Athens, Georgia.
This is how they describe themselves on their website: “Community is a boutique centered around the concept of sustainability without the sacrifice of style. Opened in 2010 by Sanni Baumgärtner, Community seeks to bring chic clothing to our clients while encouraging them to buy locally and sustainably. Community Service is our in-house brand of redesigned vintage clothing. Designed by owner Sanni Baumgärtner as a way to merge vintage fabrics and designs with current fashion.”
We have a small grill that we use quite often throughout the year. We could use a sturdy outdoor shelf for it. I actually like the idea of this up-cycled tailgate as a grill shelf. It is big enough to allow for our small grill plus room for utensils and platters. There is room on the wall of our shed that would allow for it. What do you think? Is it bad? What if I painted it a vintage mustardy color?
I like that it folds up out of the way when not is use. I can’t find the source of this image. I found it on Pinterest but when I click the link it does not take me to the original source.
