When Diane sent me out into the blogiverse to search out blogs that appealed to me, two of the first I found were That Artist Woman and Teri's Painted Daisies.

Celebrating Mid-Summer with Recycled Aluminum Cans!

Garden Art!  Sun mobile made from the aluminum can bottoms left over from the butterfly mobile.

The idea of making little suns was inspired by Midsummer Celebrations.  Midsummer is celebrated around the world near the summer solstice - the longest day of the year. This link will give you some idea of how many cultures celebrate.

Butterfly and Ivy Wreath One Year Old!

Last year about this time I put together this little vine wreath for the front door.  My plan was for it to last through the summer and then to reuse the wreath as a base for a fall themed wreath.

But, when fall came, it was still growing and looking beautiful! So, just before the first frost, I brought it inside with the faint hope I could winter it over.

And here it is - back on my front door for another summer!  Those two little canisters I used to hold water really worked great!

Repurposing Tin Cans Again! Make a Shimmering Candle Wall Sconce.

Another project using tin and aluminum cans from my trash stash!

I again turned to mid-1800's New Mexican tin work for my inspiration for this wall sconce.
