"What am I going to do with my pile of old t-shirts? I'm going to wear them. The ones that are now retired are mostly used already. I've made bracelets, though not with jewels as shown here, children's clothes and pj's, and quilts beyond belief! It certainly is fun to be creative with something everyone has and most throw away! Thanks for more ideas."

"This stylish lamp and lampshade are made from all repurposed materials. The base is made from a large pickle jar. For the shade, I used the wire from an old lampshade and the seams and hems from old jeans. The gorgeous lampshade was made from weaving the strips of old denim around the wire of a drum lampshade. The technique could be used for a scalloped shade too. The finishing lamp gives off a lovely light and has a stylish farmhouse industrial vibe to it. The only cost was for the flex."
