Reuse, Recycle, Reinvent!
I have been recycling and reusing things my entire life. In 1971, I repainted my Mom and Dad's old four-poster bed a bright blue and everyone thought I was crazy. I have always shopped for clothes at resale stores and bought accessories for my home at second hand shops. Now it's in style. Finally people are seeing it my way!
