Wednesday Wonder- pallet palaces

I will show you my other pressie from OWOH tomorrow.

I want to show you something today that really blows my mind. There is a blog on-line that my friend Pörrö turned me on to about recycled art.

It is called, oddly enough, Recyclart ;-D or http://www.recyclart.org/

There are all these pages and pages of art using recycled materials for art, functional and aesthetic purposes both. I spent an hour on there this afternoon and have been going back on and off since then.

Pretty impressive with my attention span, oh look pretty shiny thing! LOL!

Someone once told me that if I was from the animal kingdom I would be a magpie or a crow. And you know what? I can totally relate to that. It is truly amazing that I get as much done as I do.

Anyway… LOL! This place kept my attention for a long time and I think if you love art and you love recycling that you will love this website.

There are tons of DIY projects and lots of eye candy and reasons to recycle. Not only that, when I saw some of the things up there, it made me think, “man, that took a lot of bottle caps” or “geesh, that takes tons of bottles to do that” and the reality of all the waste we have on this planet slammed me right in the face.  

Now, I am a good girl, I recycle a lot. I save the strangest things, and I get ridiculed often by my children about the behavior of saving some things, not using paper plates, and bitching about doing dishes, wearing clothes until they are full of holes, sewing my socks up when they have holes, not dying my hair anymore, and on and on and on. I am also on a very tight budget and this helps a lot too.

I like to eat fast food once in a while, but because of budget constraints, I can not. I see now how much waste is involved with eating fast food. And they(fast food joints of America) have huge dumpsters out side of their establishments and they are full all of the time.

Those dumpsters do though provide food for the homeless around here, so I am glad for that!

Anyway… speaking of homeless, if I ever lose my house, I could live in this.

I think you are getting the pallet picture here. I could keep going, there are tons more of these pallet recycles, but the other recycle projects that are up there are worth taking a gander at.

Oh, I almost forgot, I would like to have you all over for a barbecue, heck invite the whole world!

This is waste. It is beautiful.
